    Thank you, sir, and Stitches' ideas are almost always, mostly, the best ideas.

    This thread is seriously dangerous to my continued solvency - I rarely have occasion to wear ties, but damn if there aren't 20-30 ties from Sam Hober that I desperately want.

    Thanks. I like both. The one on the right is certainly more versatile but there's something about the fresh looking red paired with the blue paisley.

    Hi guys - I don't normally post much on SF but since I've gotten a lot of helpful suggestions from this thread and others for my attire for my wedding this summer I wanted to give back and post a few pictures.

    Thanks to discovering this thread and others I got pretty excited about Sam Hober ties and decided to get traditional wedding ties from David for myself and my groomsmen. I ordered them with plenty of time to spare and had a great purchasing experience. They are all 58" length, 3.75 width, 3-fold construction. (This happened to be what I wanted and none of my groomsmen really care about clothes or had any kind of preference.)

    Apologies for not posting close-ups of the all the ties next to each other without suiting/background distractions...my fiancee wisely convinced me not to take the ties out of the nicely wrapped boxes they came in just to take styleforum pictures and so I had to go with what our photographer got after the groomsmen had put them on. So I have one of me and one of the groomsmen as a group.

    Huge thanks to David for the great ties and lots of thanks to everyone who has posted rave reviews and pictures of Hober ties on this thread and helping me make up my mind!

    Navy grenadine. Any weave.

    Hmm, I always thought grenadine was a bit casual for an interview. I do like a navy tie for interviews though.

    You thought wrong. Many people will be in striped ties which are much less formal. A black grenadine tie is classic city banker, and quite formal.

    ^ The key is a dark grenadine. If you go in a canary yellow grenadine you'll look like you just came from a yacht party (at least your neck will).

    You're thinking too much. Navy grenadine is an all purpose tie.
