    Yeah, but dye lots and such could be an issue or different midnight blue's from different mills. Probably too small a difference to make a difference but you never know.

    I'm waiting for David Hober to tell me how truly stupid this idea is.

    Mizuchaud, Style is something personal and this sounds like an interesting personal style choice - so a good idea for you if you like the look. The solid midnight blue may very well be a slightly different color but this could add to the elegance of your idea.

    tdude was kind enough to send me a Hober linen swatch set recently and I'm ready now to pay it forward. Let the bidding begin!

    Just kidding. It's free to the first person who provides an address and who promises to pass it along for free within a week or two of receiving it.

    ^ gotta love the handrolled edges. Among those swatches, do I see both a dark chocolate and bitter chocolate grenadine?

    The hand rolled edges are beautifully done and is a credit to David and his team.

    You have a sharp eye two of the swatches are indeed dark chocolate and bitter chocolate, I think the bitter chocolate will be one of the next commissions.

    Macclesfield Madder swatch set has just been claimed, but the linen set is still available. PM me and it's yours!

    Just received a couple Macclesfields... Beautiful as always.

    I also got a mini-set of Burnt Orange swatches... The twill, the black-warp cashmere, and the diamond weave. Because all the cool kids are doing it, I'll send these to any interested parties, too.

    Am I the only one who thinks they are so perfect as to be unattractive, especially in pocketsquare?

    Not as exciting as actual tie pictures, but here are a few grenadine swatches (some fina, some grossa) with a medium grey Benjamin Sartorial Granoro suit. I think the pictures are reasonably color accurate, so they might be of some assistance to those in doubt. I'm still trying to pick a tie for my wedding, but Sam Hober seems the way to go.

    Dark blue, slate blue, bitter chocolate:

    Dark chocolate, red, forest green:

    Charcoal silver, midnight blue, dark red:

    Navy, powder blue, dark navy:

    I'm guessing the prevailing wisdom is, "buy 'em all"?

    What I like from your photos:

    -Dark Blue
    -Forest Green
    -Dark Red
    -Dark Navy

    And yes, if within budget, buy 'em all.

    forest green with medium gray is a fantastic color combination IMHO

    That's crazy talk (for ties at least).
