    I have an older midnight grossa that is often confused by others for being black. Between the two, I’d go with the soft navy.

    I wear the midnight with blue and brown stripes all the time. Super useful.

    I also have the midnight grossa, a fina #10, and promoteo #7 and there is plenty of difference in color between all 3 to merit owning them all.

    I will caution you that the promoteo #7 is beginning to get out of the navy territory and into the blue category. I’d worry that soft navy, which is supposed to be lighter, is just “blue.”

    I'm a big fan of piccola #22 and prometeo #23, which Hober calls "dark navy blue"--a perfect description. It falls somewhere in the middle to darker range of the spectrum; it's definitely a navy blue (as opposed to just "blue"), but not quite so dark that it ever looks black, like the Hober "midnight" grenadines tend to do as has been pointed out.

    I can post pics if interested.

    I'll also say that if you wear ties often, and like blue ties (who doesn't?), then I agree with @CLTesquire and can absolutely see merit to owning several of the various shades and weaves Hober offers.
