I have a tumblr, but now need a better camera...
Hmmm might have to save that next to my saved pic of his shoe collection
Anyone have a burnt orange tie from David? I found several on the website but I can tell much by the pics. Anyone have a pic of their burnt orange tie?
I've already decided on a bitter chocolate grenadine garza grossa tie and need another that goes well with navy, brown and eggplant. I saw a gentleman the other day on the subway wearing a burnt orange tie with an eggplant stripe shirt with brown pants and it looked very sharp. Very fall!!
Here are my first ties from David. They came in the mail today and I couldn't be more pleased.
From left to right: Powder Blue and Forest Green Linen (3 fold), Dark Sienna Grenadine (4 fold), Macclesfield Silk (6 fold), Brown Cashmere (3 fold). All are untipped with rolled edges.
Everything they say about doing business from Sam Hober is true. Excellent product and courteous service.
I like the forest green linen but it seems kind of weird to have a fall color made from a summer fabric. Or can linen be used all year when referring to ties?
For me personally it is about texture and contrast, especially when it comes to ties. I wish you could see the depth of color in this linen. The green especially is amazing and I think the color alone would make it an appropriate accent for any number of cloths. I hope to pair it with a tweed jacket and shiny cotton shirt this fall. The lighting this evening was bad so I will try to get a better shot of the tie tomorrow.
David, your linen is stunning! It is hard to capture the true quality of your product and I am an amateur when it comes to photography so I apoligize for any problems with the photos.
Thanks David and Sonny58, I appreciate your thoughts. I was curious because I also need a hunter green tie to go with a several tweed jackets.
I'm looking for a purple and brown pocket square, any here?
Thanks for posting these Sonny.
Doesn't Drake's have something in purple? The mogul squares or somesuch.
Burnt ornage is almost coppery IRL: 1st tie on the left in the crappy photo; a reppe courtesy of David.
My fav is the last one: Burgundy Grenadine Garza Grossa, fourfold and untipped.
Got the same forest green linen, and I agree, the texture and vibrancy of colour is out of this world.
Does the forest green linen have a similar texture of a wool tie?
I'm not sure what hunter green is, but there's a forest green cashmere tie that your tweed jackets will probably like:
^ That would look nice with a (light) navy suit and a white shirt...
