    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.

    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):

    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
