    David is a gentleman and a pleasure to work with.
    I have been ordering from him for a couple of years now, and have ordered dozens of ties.
    He is always super friendly, patient, and his ties are beautiful.

    You and me both, brother. Just ordered several fabric swatches. It's only a matter of time now until the raping and pillaging of my wallet begins.

    lovely. however, the need for swatches is apparent. the colors are very different from hober's site.

    I actually went with the self-tipping rather than rolled edges. I believe the backside of this fabric is solid brown like this: http://www.samhober.com/macclesfield...square-34.html.

    Sorry for the iPhone photos.


    Thank you.
    Awesome tie.

    I like the self-tipping.

    [​IMG] one question for hober - why does borrelli do their 7 fold unlined horizontally and you do it diagonally?

    Diagonally looks better. Can't really tell unless you're up close but it's a nice touch.

    David, haven't had the chance to try any of your ties yet but I look forward to when I can. Your tutorials for tie-making, PS making etc are hugely helpful! Really great stuff. Some of the neat patterns you make are drool worthy... Actually pretty much everything you make is drool worthy!

    I think this midnight blue 7-fold but instead with self-tipping will be my next one. Waiting on swatches currently.

    I hate clicking on this thread. There is so much want. I've been recommending David for years now based on things like this alone. Why dont I own a Hober yet? [​IMG] I think I need to get the ball rolling here.
