    That's a fantastic looking tie, I must say.

    Lovely sir! Is there a price difference between 3-Fold and a true 7-fold? I couldn't tell on Sam Hober's website. Thanks

    EDIT: Ah I see. You have to combine the price of the fabric with the price of the chosen construction option.

    I semi-regularly attend funerals (occupational necessity), and have a black (herringbone weave) suit for the occasions. Would appreciate tie recommendations to go with, as my taste otherwise tends towards bright ties and I'm getting tired of my 1-2 current options.

    Charcoal, too. If any pattern, very discreet. Small dots, very subtle stripes, that sort of thing. Just something to differentiate it from the black or charcoal jacket, ever so slightly.

    Does anybody own either the black diamond weave or the black Oxford weave? I actually don't own a black tie other than a knit and I know a black grenadine is classic, but I thought either one of these would be a nice alternative. Thoughts?

    How long does it usually take for swatches to ship, and do you get a shipping notice? I ordered some two weeks ago but haven't heard anything.

    Usually pretty quick. Swatches are quick to cut, so they usually let you "skip" in line as it doesn't make sense to have you wait 10 days in line for work that'd only take one worker 5 minutes to do anyways. I guess it will depend on how busy they are etc, but usually this is how it happens.

    The swatches were probably cut and shipped a few days after you ordered. Sometimes they'll give a notification for swatches, and sometimes not. Shipping is typically a few weeks for swatches, so I would expect that you should get them quite soonish.

    It's been almost a year since I bought my first Hober and finally just ordered two more with a bunch of swatches. I'm excited to start building a new tie wardrobe!

    I need to shorten a few of my Hober ties. Firstly, they are thicker than anything I had, so I find myself tying more four-in-hands than my modified Steward or anything else. Plus, grenadines do relax a bit. Oh, an a few Tom Ford suits with 14" rise trousers have brought my waistband up a bit. Love the fit, but wreaks havoc on tie length.

    Any have experience with a tailor or seamstress shortening a tie? I can send them back for re-work, but shipping and borders simply don't make it worth it. It seems easy enough (I can blind hem, lockstitch, and shank a button) except for the running stitch which holds the whole thing together. I figure just start at the tail.

    If you have a navy or burgundy grenadine sell them to me and start with new ones. Might be cheaper that way

    I haven't used them yet, but tie crafters is well regarded for changing length and width of ties.

    I have to send one tie in - a 7-fold non-Hober that has had its lining detach inside - plus it's about 3 inches too long, so I'll have that adjustment made also. I've just been to lazy to send it in.
