I could never do better than the website. Best thing, if you're on the fence, is to get swatches.
Meh, your review is good enough I'd say. I'd have no hesitation to have both midnight and navy...solid blue ties and I have a special bond
Well, do try them both. At this point, I'm not totally sure which is which.
Anyone have pictures of the Hounds Tooth ties? Also, how long does it take items to arrive in NYC after making a purchase?
Second the first question. Would love to see some. Answer to the second is ~2 weeks. If I recall, it took about 10 days or so (to CA) from order to my door.
Here's my Hober houndstooth black/white:
I rather like it. It is thick and heavy, the silk has a very rich look, so it only comes out for weddings and more formal occasions (it will overwhelm a less formal suit and shirt). The pattern is small which is great. From afar it looks like a silver tie. If I could change something it would be to go for the 6 fold or whatever the no-lining one is; the silk is so heavy it will probably make a lovely self-lining. Great "crunch" on tying.
The ropestripe never comes out. I can't make it work.
