    sam's 'default' width is around 9.5cm right? seems a bit wide, i might request 8 or 8.5.

    No. Sam's default width is more like 9 cm but you can customize to your desire.

    Does anybody have an 8 fold hober? I honestly don't think I'd order one, but I'd be fascinated to see what it looks like, as well as know if there are any benefits/drawbacks.

    I think it might be more correct to say David has a default set of proportions, not width. In other words, if all you tell him is width and length, then the curvature, rate of taper, and other dimensions (like how narrow it will be at its narrowest point) will generally adhere to his "normal" pattern UNLESS you tell him otherwise.

    I can't say enough good things about Hober ties and David's assistance in the process.

    My first order with Hober. Got them delivered to my hotel when in Bangkok. My mediocre at best pictures don't do justice and it's very hard to catch the beauty of them (vivid colors,texture,luxury feel) when using a smartphone. I am very satisfied with my order and David Hober even called the reception of my hotel to ensure that i receive my package.

    ^ Congrats. Solid first order. Love that map of the world pocket square. I don't wear mine a lot, but there's just something awesome about having a map in your pocket.

    Trying to find a summer (or possilbly year-round) tie to go with the following outfit. Does anyone have suggestions?
    [​IMG]

    Thinking something brown or rust, but open to any colour suggestions.

    Bonus points if anyone can suggest something that would also go with this jacket, too. It's My other hardcore summer-only, hot-as-hell-outside jacket, so a summery fabric would be nice.

    Thinking rust wouldn't be great with that.


    Paging @Claghorn for his love of Hober ties, blue and brown.

    Edit: Corrected pic colours.

    Sorry I didn't see this. I actually think I never turned on notifications for tags. My wife has hearing issues and often times people think she's ignoring them. Same thing here. Only. You know. My bad.

    For something that world for both:

    You're right the rust wouldn't work (I think). The multi-stripe tie is too busy for a very busy jacket. The burnt orange looks like a safe bet, as does the brown. The beige I'd pass on. Not convinced it would work in that context and I know there are many other contexts in which it won't work. The right olive could do the trick.

    ---

    On a different note, has anyone messaged the guy selling fake Hobers on eBay? Though I think he's just mistaken about their origin. If not, @Sam Hober do you want me to?

    ---

    You will be pleased to note that the "rust" grenadine is actually chocolate fina (or piccola) on the website. It's true color is rust. As someone mentioned earlier, they are lighter in real life. Either the fina or the piccola is much lighter in real life.

    And now for a random Hober from earlier in the year:

    The lapels on this jacket are gorgeous. Such a great roll and I'm not sure I've ever seen a peak lapel 3 roll 2.

    I just saw your post and it caught me by surprise as we never advertise and I thought we were like a great small family restaurant that only a few know about...

    Thank you for alerting me - greatly appreciated sir.

    I sent an email to the seller who emailed back and asked why we thought they were fakes - astounding the arrogance of some people.

    So I politely emailed back that the labels were wrong, fabric wrong and so on... and I have also emailed Ebay so hopefully the sales will be soon taken down,

    I have seen quite a few times people copy some of what we do online but there is nothing we can do about that except take it as a compliment.

    I guess this is a new stage in our business life and I need to set up procedures for dealing with it in the future.

    Thanks again!

    David

    Well, if there are fake Hobers around, the best way to assure oneself of buying the real thing seems pretty easy to me...buy direct from David. It's not rocket science.

    @AHS LOL. You came to the Hober Fan Club to ask if you should get a custom Hober made?

    :tounge: Ha.. Fair enough... I'm just hoping / looking for a little push before I splurge on the tie. I've seen Drakes grenadines in person but haven't had the good fortune (yet!) to own a Hober tie.
