Aren't they? They on my watch list.
How would you like it in a tie?
A couple months ago, I ordered a ps for myself and a tie as a test for possible groomsmen ties. The tie and ps are of finest quality in material and make. And David was kind enough to send several swatches I had requested. I'm about to order the groomsmen ties, and I might slip in a tie for myself.
those squares are great!
I just received my first order of ties and squares from David. Wow! He is fantastic to work with. I ordered a dark navy grenadine which I specified as un-tipped, 4-fold, and hand rolled. I have two Kent Wang grenadine ties and while I would recommend the them to anyone, the Hober is a step above. I also ordered a standard red cashmere tie which is beautiful in its own right.
During the ordering process David learned that a portion of my order was destined to be in my upcoming wedding in October. Upon learning of my upcoming wedding he automatically upgraded my order to Express and also threw in a pocket square, both at no charge. His service has been consistently above and beyond and I will continue ordering from him and recommending his services any chance I get.
Now on to the photos!
Beautiful ties and PS Brandon...Congrats on the upcoming nuptials!! I've been wondering how the Wang and Hober grenadine ties compared...also, what does it mean when a tie is "untipped"? I'm about to order a couple of the grenadine ties and want to make sure that I have all the information before doing so.
Also, is one the PS brown with white dots? Also, are the PS's hand rolled edges?
Thanks for the kind words. Yes, one of the squares pictured is the brown with white dots and they also all have hand-rolled edges.
An unlined tip is one of the options that David gives you in customizing your ties. Due to the loose weave inherent of grenadine fabric you can actually see through the tie since there is no lining. Some people like this option, some don't. After seeing this one in person, I personally do.
Sam Hober unlined tip.(If you look close at the tip, you can see some of the light shining through.)
Kent Wang lined tip.
I'm not sure how I feel about being able to see through the tie...I like the look but it seems as though the tie needs the lining to give it some weight to hang properly?
I'm extremely impressed by the rolled edges of the pocket squares.
To the top...
..come on everyone, we need MORE PICTURES!!!
Beautiful ties David...i just ordered two of the printed challis specimens!!
When will the solid challis be available?
How is the bar tack made?
What type of silk are these pocket squares? Thanks
great stuff. can't wait to see it made up!
the word that comes to mind when i see Sam Hober stuff is perfection. the range/variety of ties they have available is endless and look at the hand rolled edges on those pocket squares posted above, i dont even think a machine could do it that well. fantastic stuff.
