BE CAREFUL with the Sam Hober red because they may look like burgundy but they are actually red. Sam Hober makes the best grenade ties!

Hober kills it with grenadine. Size of weave is really personal preference, with the smaller weaves technically being a tad more formal.

Love that brown neat and the Panta.

So many different types of Grenadine at Sam Hober puzzled.gif  

I'm definitely going to get a Burgundy or Dark Red, Forest Green and Navy Grenadine.  I just need to decide how big the texture/Grenadine should be.  IE: 

Shouldn't you be saving up for some new tires? biggrin.gif

Jr:  Order the swatches from Hober before ordering ties as the colors on the website are not always accurate.  For example, I have the swatch for the brown neat in front of me now and the purple is much more prominent in the swatch than in the picture.  In addition to color issues, you can also get a better feel for the different grenadine weaves if you order the grossa and fina swatches.

 

I've had more than one occasion with Hober ties where I thought I knew my next tie purchase until I received the swatches.

That was last week and new tires are on.  I slid through one too many intersections this winter.  This is preplanning for this fridays paycheck usage.  :lol:   Do you have ties still fs? :D

I have a tire that I am trying to get rid of. :rimshot:

I have the Hober forest green grenadine fina and love it.  The bitter chocolate grenadine fina is also a good one to pick up:

MTM is an expenditure I struggle to rationalize. With two kids and a couple of relatively expensive hobbies outside of clothes, it would really be pushing it.

That's incredible, considering the number of times you've mentioned some designer label or other.  You must be a black belt in discounts and sale-spotting.  Respect - I also have a strong aversion to paying full price.  Anyway, I get how that changes the perspective on MTM - if you're getting your RL suit for $250 instead of $1000, and it fits you so nicely, then you are very much in the wisdom zone.

What are your expensive hobbies?  I'm curious.


I race cars (relatively cheaply, but there really isn't cheap car racing) and I'm in a band. Both require rent and equipment.
