    +1. Also, I do not think the second tie is one of David's grenadines. Looks like an oxford weave or something similar.

    One of David's mogador stripe ties. For the curious, it kind of feels like in Irish Poplin tie. Glad I snapped one of these up.

    I got a midnight blue Mogador, and it has the potential to be in the "if you only had one" category.

    The second tie does not look like a grenadine, maybe a Diamond Weave or Oxford? The Hober's do vary color wise in different weaves and materials .. in other words a Forest Green Fina, Grossa and Diamond Weave will all have a bit of variance. I do feel the Fina you've shown here and is a fairly close representation of that tie, I have one and wear it often, great tie.

    agree that swatches are a good idea.

    the second is "forest green diamond weave," and per the owner, "IRL it's a darker and more pure green" -- original: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/...reciation-thread.245529/page-106#post-6175188

    The Hober oxford weave tie is absolutely beautiful and knots with relative ease. It's underrated, for sure.

    Is that the one described as "off white and dark red?" On the website the stripe is almost tan but yours is much closer to a true white in your pic.

    Yes that's the one. The picture probably has more contrast than IRL. The white is what I would call off-white, or sand. To give you an idea, the trousers are not truly white here either, they are Lands End's off white/sand chinos.

    Correction-- I think the one I like so much is the midnight faille. The one that is probably mogador is a lighter blue. Hard to say, as I can't find the invoice for the darker one to confirm. It's a hair finer than what I'd imagine the reppe to be.

    Anyway, get as many midnight ties as you can-- you will always find a use for them.
