    Seems like a great choice for a first Hober tie. :) I'm anxiously awaiting my first Hober order as well, which also includes a navy grenadine--a dark navy fina to be exact.

    +1. Navy grenadine is one of the more versatile ties you can own and David makes an excellent one. I hope you enjoy yours when it arrives.

    I went for the grossa, though I really liked the fina and the piccola as well.

    Just got an email that my three Hober ties have shipped! Now I'm kicking myself for not selecting expedited delivery. :brick:

    That's a sign the addiction has already started. :)

    Wish I would have ordered expedited delivery too, I just received an invitation to a party at the Italian Embassy two weeks from today and I would love to wear my newly ordered midnight blue grenadine.

    what's the purpose of rolled edges? design aesthetic? are they recommended for tipped or untipped? does type of material/fabric comes into play? Thank You

    As I understand it, rolled edges are a design aesthetic. Many think that it looks nice and it also shows a certain amount of hand sewing and customization. It's not my cup of tea, but many like it.

    Fabric selection definitely comes into play with tipped vs. untipped. Most notably, you can see through an untipped grenadine weave, which creates an interesting effect.

    Not really, I'm 6'4 with a 16.5/17 collar and I get mine 66-67 inches. It all depends how you wear your trousers and such though. If you wear high waisted trousers and slouch you'll need much shorter ones than if you wear low waisted trousers and have great posture.

    Not saying 64 will be perfect, but it doesn't sound crazy to me

    I don't believe you rolled edges are possible unless the tie is untipped, no?

    I may be wrong but it seems to me that when a tie is untipped the rolled edges give some amount of structural support to the tip of the tie.
