Yes, I meant forest green. Thanks. Do you recommend a 3 or 4 fold for this tie?
I'd say its texture is a little more refined than most wool ties. Visually it has more of a sheen with a lot of subtle color variations. Of course it wrinkles more easily. David's linen appears to me to be of a very high quality and looks luxurious.
How does it compare to the forest green grenadine #16, i.e. richer color and texture? Looking for something to wear with a tweed sport coat.
I have no idea, Cuttingboard. Maybe David or somebody else.
I couldn't agree more, my good man.
Looks pretty damned good with brown, too.
^ The colour seems a bit muted in those pics. If true to life, I think the pairing with the brown is the best one. The forest green grenadine above seems brighter and I suspect will be a better pairing for navy...
I agree, the grenadine seems to be a little richer and a better pairing for navy and browns.
I finally placed my first Sam Hober tie order and can't wait to see David's craftsmanship. I ordered two grenadine garza grossa ties; one in bitter chocolate and one in forest green.
Once the ties come in, please post some pics.
Would love to see the bitter chocolate in grenadine garza grossa.
Recently received our groomsmen's ties (burgundy grenadines, still nicely wrapped)
and a few other things for myself (GGG #23, GFG #10 and Madder ps in #1):
Thank you, David.
Thats a great box to open, enjoy!
I guess I've always been mildly tie-curious, but recently I can't stop thinking about getting my hands on a nice meaty length of that silky goodness. Tonight I snuck down to the study when Mrs Dandie fell asleep, fired up a private browsing session, and now I've just taken the plunge and ordered my first Hober-fix - burgundy cashmere, and navy satin.
Damn you to hell SF, look what you're doing to me.
Ultimately this might be just the spice your relationship needs
Don't forget - old silk neckties make great bedpost 'tie offs' - just sayin'.......................
I only use old cashmere ties for my 'tie offs'
