    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm not Belgian thankfully, but I pay the many governments here a substantial sum for the privilege of working here :D

    Can't complain really.

    But probably will.

    The Burgundy Oxford Silk Tie #6 will be on its way in a few days ....

    Within hours of placing my order, David emailed me to confirm my specs. I appreciate good customer service, and don't mind paying a bit more to get it.

    I have an oxford silk on the way as well and am anxious for its arrival. [​IMG]

    IMO, David's customer service is second to none and the value proposition of his ties at the list price is ridiculously awesome. Should one be assessed duties on their Hober purchase, the value proposition of his ties might (emphasis on "might") decrease to really awesome.

    In full agreeance! The hefty duty places these ties at a value i'd expect to pay for such ties rather than the price I would normally pay for them.

    So many choices...now it occurs to me that you might have meant to just get all of the grenadines, not all of the swatches [​IMG]. I think I might be in trouble, so many beautiful swatches!

    Great looking tie Pink!

    Funny, I was just flipping through all the diamond weave swatches and there are some stunning choices.

    Thanks, now I must admit that there are a few I didn't get, such as the wedding and regimental stripes, but it sure seems like ALL of them.

    Haha that is the best thing I will probably see all day. That is absolutely hard core. I do not think I could even resist that many beautiful fabrics!

    This is awesome. At least you will not have to order a swatch set for a long time.

    pinkpanther: Nice ensemble.

    The shirt/coat combo called for a solid tie and you pulled it off nicely. Well done.

    English Pattern Silk Tie #6 (mine at long last now that material is back in stock) on its maiden voyage yesterday. I think it may already be one of my favorites.
