    I feel for you. Hober ties are like a drug addiction. You want to stop, but you just can't. Good luck!

    The pattern in no. 1 is a hair big for my boring tastes, but the second one is very nice indeed.

    Patern 1 is actually much smaller in the sense that it repeats over a much smaller area, while the 2nd pattern is most of the width of the tie. I have the same reaction but in my case #2 is too big.

    Just ordered Sam Hober tie # 3 on Saturday, at this rate I'll have completely rebooted my collection by 2015.

    Does anyone have any experience with ordering scarves from Sam Hober? I'm thinking of ordering one before the deadly Mississippi winter hits.

    I ordered a thai silk scarf for my wife. She was very happy with it.

    David sent me this in an email when I asked about lined scarf construction.

    So you should be - I'm very happy with my burgandy. Just ordered a dark red fina. The tie knots beautifully and developed a dimple immediately.

    Note for aussies: regular shipping was about 1.5 weeks for me.

    I live in Charlotte and have received some of David's orders in as little as seven days with regular shipping. Out of about ten orders, the average shipping time has been about ten or twelve days. One order took the full three weeks. I think it really depends on US Customs, and how quickly they process the package.
