    Was out of the office on Thurs/Fri so no ties, Hober or otherwise. Back in the office this week so more pics will be coming. Excellent choices to add to your collection Flyswatter. :nodding:


    Yes you do need to order more Hobers and...so do I. :happy:


    Yes you do need the fina. I have the navy in both grossa and fina and am glad I do. :nodding:

    I really like the combo Kroaker. Keep working on that dimple. :nodding:

    Here is a pic of the dark chocolate grossa that I posted a few months back. I imagine lighting is causing most of the difference.

    Hi gents, quick question: how shiny are the oxford ties? I'm thinking about picking up one in burnt orange, but I'm not a fan of shiny ties in general - would a grossa be more fitted to my purpose?

    ^ Re. oxfords generally not as shiny as some of the photographs suggest. Grenadine are lovely, matt but with a deep lustre. Oxford are nice, with a not unattractive sheen. Certainly not shiny like satin.

    If you don't like any sheen, and don't yet have sufficient grenadine, grenadine may be the better option.

    I wouldn't be without oxfords, though - nice contrast with a 'dry' cloth like nailhead.

    I actually prefer the solid reppes and twills over the oxfords, but they are still a great piece to have

    I was staying away from gold ties but I think you just sold me this one... Also -- is it wrong that my collection is becoming skewed toward Hober dots and pin dots? Feel a bit like Morely Safer.

    Thanks for the comparison pic. Even though they look quite different in our photos, I think the dark chocolate fina and grossa are a very similar color, if not identical.



    Not at all! Dots and pindots are my favorite patterns for ties, and they're almost as versatile as solids. :nodding:

    +1 - IRL there is little, if any, shine

    The grossa versus oxford (versus fina versus diamond weave versus....) is a question of personal taste. I like them all. :slayer:
