    Hoberites,

    Anyone ordered MCT 102. I have a swatch and it looks beautiful, but I would love to see a picture made up if someone has one.

    BTW this is one of the best threads on the whole board.

    Skanstull- the shot silk PSs are pretty wild- not to everyone's taste. Iridescent- some in red-green, or blue-yellow etc

    I have that one, wearing it today in fact. I am away and don't have a camera, but it is quite nice. Subtle and elegant, as you'd expect.

    I think I need a new tie to wear with suit in formal and "dressy" events. I've been using silver satin tie which is the most appropriate choice for that kind of events but now I want something different. So, do you think Sam Hober silver/gray grenadines are formal enough for my purposes? Which one would you choose if you were me? At the moment I think garza fine would be better, since it's more subtle but still has an interesting texture.

    Bullswin- re: stripes British is (your) left to right. American is vice versa.

    IIRC David will ask which u prefer.

    If you consider questions like these, you're probably going to be dressed better than 99.5% of those in attendance. Get the one you like best.

    I would def go with a dark navy or midnight grenadine in either weave, and maybe a charcoal reppe, however I would request samples before buying anything so you can see the colors in person

    How does one generally get a hold of David to talk about they want to place an order? PM? company email?

    email. he responds very quickly (just remember his time zone is different). and he is always helpful and patient. he will gladly answer as many questions as you have.

    that was my experience anyway. :)
