    this is a very conservative group, I admire your restraint. I'm always tempted to go extravagant with Hober, like a kid in a lolly shop

    Here's one I'm wearing today.

    The background is a true midnight blue that looks almost black. Hard to capture. I'll try to take some better pictures of the others another time.

    For anyone who's thinking about getting these, I really recommend ordering a swatch set. IRL, the silks are much more beautiful than the website pictures. I probably would have passed over both the brown and charcoal ties had I not seen the swatches.

    swatch set is key... but that makes it even tougher to pick just a few!

    I'm going to have to order a swatch set. I just order a navy wool tie today.

    My first two Hober ties: a three-fold pinspot and a four-fold grenadine. Slightly darker IRL due to flash, but gorgeous.

    Is the standard construction for the grenadines to be unlined or not lined all the way through to the tip like NOBD's? With this type of construction does the tip of the tie look somewhat "see-through" from the front?
