    Coolio!

    I haven't owned a leather tie since the 80s.

    And I'm already scheming how to combine a croc pocket square with a fit.

    I call dibs on anything made up in Mafoofan Hermes Green TM.

    My guess is that they're out looking for jobs like the rest of the world.

    Make sure they have good credentials.

    That's good to hear. Let's hope it stays like that.

    Just received a couple of grenadines from Sam Hober. The turnaround from initial order to delivery was very quick (even more impressive when you consider the local weather conditions and their current circumstances).

    The quality is superb and what genuinely charming folks to deal with.

    Makes shopping a real pleasure. :)

    Hey Guys,
    About to order my first tie from Sam Hober. I've heard a lot about grenadine ties, and I'm interested in getting one, but I'm not sure if it's right for what I'm interested in. I'm basically interested in ordering a go to interview tie. I work in the legal industry, so the tie ought to be very conservative. Is the grenadine fina texture a bit much for an interview tie? Would I be better off with a Reppe Weave Solid Silk Tie. I'll be going for a dark navy blue color either way. Thanks for your insight!

    I own both styles and have worn a grenadine to formal functions but I think it's a little fine and ornate for your occasion. Go with a solid reppe that (I hope) slightly offsets the color of the suit - to avoid a uniformed look.

    I would say go for the grenadine. I'll never say anything bad about Sam Hober, but solid reppe (and satin) weaves are the trappings of the corporate drone.

    Good morning.
    First of all, whatever your choice, order from Sam. They are class and courtesy, and the work and material will not disappoint.
    I would agree with Sprout. The grenadine would be perhaps a bit too much, even the fina.
    Don't forget that businesswear is often camouflage, for better or worse. An interview is not the place to demonstrate your taste, but rather your sense and capacities. Perhaps choose something subtle for a tie. The socks, however... They will never take our socks.
    Just to share, here are some photos of a Hober grenadine tie (grossa) and some pocket squares. Notice the openness of the grenadine and the corners of the squares. Lovely.
    (The photos are very large, so you can see the weave and stitching. My apologies for the poor lighting.)

    How long did it take for you to receive your tie once you received an email from David that the tie shipped?

    My last three orders from David have taken seven days, eight days, and six days...with regular shipping!! US Customs seems to be getting faster lately.
