    Nice! You are going to love the burnt orange diamond weave, it is one of my favorites. Remember to post pics! :)

    Here's my first Hober. I'm posting the box because I thought it was the coolest box that I've gotten anything in ever. Including any iProducts. I'm getting one for a friend in his wedding and the box couldn't be more cool to have.

    Tie is better than expected. Duh. Pictures of knot when I get a more respectable collar to use (Wednesday, 5x shirts).

    Thinking of picking up this one now, too.. I like the Grenadines and have a few but don't see the need to hop on the Hober Grenadine bandwagon yet. Maybe one on the next order :)

    Awesome tie!! But you need to have your sight checked, there is always a universal need to hop on the Hober grenadine bandwagon.

    i'm a college student looking to get a couple hober ties. Anything you guys recommend for a starting tie collection, probably need them for interviews and work. i'm looking at the navy tie with white pin dots (for interviews) and for something else, maybe more casual but business appropriate.

    ^^ clag has some great recommendations. For interviews, I recommend a small dot or, more preferable, a conservative neat. Oddly enough, dots can come off a little more forward than a discreet neat.

    Picking up a grenadine tie might be the Hober-thing to do, but I like that challis tie!

    ^ Depends on the nature of your work, but even in a conservative legal industry, I don't think most people will bat an eyelid. Since you say events/work, I'm guessing you're probably in a less conservative industry, and so, you can probably wear grenadine ties (in that shade) without having to worry too much.

    I picked this one up quite a while ago, but I dropped into this thread again during the weekend and got so caught up that I had to order three more ties and a cream silk ps. Will post pics when they come!

    Thanks! I think that the a tight double FIH produces the best arch from the shirt collar. :)

    Navy fina, right? Just want to make sure. Been eyeing it up for a while; glad to see it will be back in stock soon.
