    ^^ I recently received some forest green swatches -- cashmere, grenadine grossa, and linen. The linen was my favorite (grossa would be a close #2).

    the one in the OP is olive green, the forest is a little darker. the second post shows a forest green cashmere.

    David recommends it over the seven fold without one.

    Btw, I did an Irish car bomb on Saturday night and spilled half of it right on my new grenadine. Whoops.

    I received my first shipment of Hober ties a few days ago.

    They are simply great. Width 3.15 inches (8 cm). All standard construction - the only option I chose was stripes in the british direction.:)

    From left: forest green challis wool, navy grenadine garza, midnight blue pattern challis wool, burgundy cashmere and midnight blue striped grenadine tie.

    Are you sure that's the navy?

    Yes, but I think a warning would be appropriate - all colours are a bit more vibrant in my pictures than in real life, and the navy grenadine appears lighter than it is.

    It may also be the photo, or the flash. My Hober grenadine is a bit lighter on photos than IRL.

    Well done. I'm sorely tempted by the striped grenadine.
