    Excellent news regarding the new striped grenadines! Can't wait to see what they are.

    ^Lovely tie. Would love something like that in dark brown. I am just absolutely certain that I will have to pay both tax, custom duties and a fee i fI buy anything from Thailand...

    Today's Hober is the much under-appreciated red tie. This is the dark red diamond weave (3-fold construction).

    Thanks - had not looked on the web site for a few weeks so had not noticed. Will need to add to my wish list.

    That's it. As you can see it's not as dark in real life as in pictures on Sam Hober website.

    If you take a shot, use the post office shipping, not DHL. The courier firms make a special effort to charge you tax and duty even when it's not required, because then they can charge you a $10 'brokerage fee' (I'm still mad at DHL for charging me $30 tax, duty and fees on a gift below the duty-required value some years back). With the post office, experiences vary and of course it'll depend on your country's postal carrier, but for me, I find they frequently don't charge tax/duty.

    Thanks - I would guess the "plum" coulour is also not as dark as well.
