    I'm about to pull the trigger on my first set of Hober ties, and had a question about shipping. On the website it mentions that both DHS and EMS shipping are available. For those in the U.S., which is better, and how long does average delivery take once the ties are shipped? Thanks!

    I opted for DHL, and got my ties within 3 days of them being shipped. I would definitely recommend DHL, where you get accurate tracking, instead of having your shipment lost in the postal system for 2-3 weeks.

    Sorry about the delay, but here is the dark red grenadine fina and a couple of her friends.

    I'm not sure the colours are 100% spot on though, as these are taken in the bathroom with a strong light. Judging by how both the pink shirt and the blue shirt look almost white, it seems like they're all a bit lighter than in real life.

    Oh and by the way these are all 3.85 inches wide and 67/66 inches long (65 for grenadines to compensate for stretching)

    Houndstooth that's made up of what looks like silver and burgundy, which looks coppery in real life 3-fold

    Dark navy english satin, slightly darker IRL 3-fold.
    [​IMG]

    White blue and red very fine check, pretty close to IRL 3-fold

    Forest green diamond weave, IRL it's a darker and more pure green, same blazer as both above and below for color comparison. 3-fold

    White and black (I think) glen check, 6-fold. Picture is accurate

    Dark red grenadine fina, 4-fold, picture is a touch light. Blazer is the same as above, so you can see that the pic is brighter.

    White and black english woven pattern, 6-fold, pretty close to real life

    White woven dots on midnight blue background, 3-fold, pretty close though perhaps a touch lighter than real life.

    The Silverfox, lovely collection. Really like the first tie especially. Do you recall what category it is in on the website if you don't mind me asking?

    It's funny you should say that, as this was my first Sam Hober tie and is probably still my favourite. It really is magnificently beautiful, and it's even more beautiful in real life as the color is a bit warmer than in the pic, as well as being more "alive" when natural light hits it from different angles as it's quite a shiny tie.

    It's in the category Pattern Silk Ties, and I believe the code is (was) EPT-6, but unfortunately I got the last one if I recall correctly. I would speculate that this is one that will make a return, but that's just speculation on my part, I'm sure David will have that info. There's a pic on the site, one of the few where they've rolled the tie up and then laid it on it's side so you really see the light play with it, as it does when worn IRL, that really does it justice.

    Nice! What collar is that first grenadine grossa? I'm assuming burgundy or dark red?

    Thanks. The first grenadine grossa is the dark red. Burgundy is on my to-buy list.

    Perfect! Love the color, and I have a dark red grenadine fina on the way.

    Any recommendations material-wise for SH ties? My collection has basics, now's the time for experimentation.
