    That is the Macclesfield pin dot.

    EDIT: Okay, on the printed pin dots you can argue over 76, 77, and 170! Send David an email with your photo. If really fussy, ask for swatches in that range.

    Nice dark red base. I just received my #126. Now, I realize that #121 is quite complimentary and that one cannot have too many dark red ties.

    Pinkpanther do you find the 6 fold lined Macc ties to be too thick at times? Or is this just a dumb question :)

    Not a dumb question. I don't find them too thick, they have a real nice drape and are what I would consider a medium weight. My advice is always to try one and see if you like it. :nodding:

    I have several :) my Macc. , oxfords, and reppe ties are all 6 fold lined. My grenadines I went with standard 4 folds. I'm actually very happy. I'm curious as to know which ties work best unlined.

    Thank you sir! The tie is actually a Macclesfield print (#114) and David still has some material available. :nodding:

    Broke this out for the first time. Hopefully it's the last day of snow we get for a LONG time!

    Very nice NS. Have been reading up on this thread and looked at Hobers store. I really want to tey a few - especially the macclefields and the challis. I am scared of taking the plunge though. If the package is stopped in customs in Denmark I will be hit with 12 percent toll , 25 percent :angry:Vat and a customs fee of about 20 usd... :angry: and danish customs are probably the best staffed and most zealous in the world...
