    3.75". I just received 4 other ties in this order as well, will post pics as I wear them over the next week or so. Very happy with all of my new Hobers, this is the beginning of a great but expensive new hobby...

    Three new grenadines arrived today. Here is the current set:

    Left to right: Black (grossa), Navy (fina), Dark Navy (fina), Dark Chocolate (fina), Bitter Chocolate (fina).

    I had the dark chocolate and navy. The bitter chocolate, dark navy, and black are new. The dark navy order was a tactical error. The swatch set showed what I believed to be a much greater contrast between navy and dark navy. This picture exaggerates the difference between them. Sitting here with them in front of me, I can't tell which is which without looking at the tags on the back (the new set uses newer tags). There is definitely no good reason to have both. Oops.

    One can never have too many navy grenadines, especially when of Hober quality. There is absolutely good reason to have both. Nice ties. :)

    Now you can wear one out to dinners without fear of ruining it through spilling sauce or wine on it! If the unthinkable does happen, astonish your table by nonchalently removing the tie and throwing it away before pulling out your second navy Sam Hober and knotting it there and then. If it's a business dinner - guaranteed promotion right there.

    To no one's surprise, David has made a generous offer to me to replace my "duplicative" navy tie with another of my choice. And another forum member and I have split the windfall such that the duplicative tie will find a loving new home. I offered to make David the recipient of the funds for sending the tie to the other forum member, but he politely declined. I have dealt with many companies that provide top rate customer service, but it would be impossible to beat Sam Hober.

    You should go through and name the styles/colours for us playing at home. Some lovely ties, great collection.
