    Now the only problem is, with so much variety, how do I narrow my choices down?

    Thats the thing. As you can see in some of teh member pics here... you dont.

    Haha, yeah, I'm worried that these will become the Pringles of neckties for me, so to speak. In fact, having looked at the website and become overwhelmed with choice, I chose a boring navy silk tie. I might deliberate a bit more before placing an order.

    ^ Is the middle one the midnight blue oxford? I've been thinking of getting that one as my next tie purchase...
    No, that is a Dark Navy Diamond Weave Silk Tie #3.

    These ties look absolutely gorgeous, and David seems like a great guy. I'll definitely be ordering a couple of ties, at $80 I'd be foolish not to (I worry about shipping costs to the UK though, but from the website they seem reasonable!)

    Now the only problem is, with so much variety, how do I narrow my choices down?


    I had the same problem and I solved it. I have purchased about 2 a week. I have 57 and more in the cart. I decided I need one in each color. The problem is, David keeps adding to his inventory and I can never catch up.

    SH is good stuff. Stuff made to your exacting specifications, should you feel like it.

    I look at the way people slobber over pindots or plain grenadines from other makers that cost nearly as much (if not more) but provide objectively less quality (e.g. 3 fold grenadine from one maker here costs as much as a 4 fold SH, etc etc) and I feel [​IMG]


    who is the threefold grenadine maker here?

    Panta Grenandine's are six-fold, lined. In any case though, I think there's room in the world for both. To go along with this, I think this next month will be my first foray into Sam Hober ties, and I'm rather giddy over it. Now all I have to do is decide.

    In hindsight it was not the best idea to be seen as dissing other makers - I appreciate them, for they bring variety to the market. What others may lack in construction they make up for in fabric choice.

    That said, if you want a superlatively made tie that can be customised ad-infinitum, you owe it to yourself to check out SH.

    Hober ties are simply incredible. All sorts of little differences in the quality of the construction that you start to appreciate over time. And great fabric selection, too.

    panta is 6 fold to my understanding ... was wondering who sold 3 fold grenadines on here?[​IMG]

    I'm looking to get a tie that would be perfect for an interview. I was looking at some the reppe stripe ties, but can't decide. Does anyone have any suggestions? The more soporific the better.

    Our selection is going to get a lot larger this year and keep growing for quite a while.

    too much choice is not a good thing. you have a nicely edited selection now - it's hard to pick now as it is[​IMG]

    If you're married to stripes, perhaps this:

    If not, then maybe one of these:

    SpooPoker,

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments - they are appreciated.

    When I see your name I am very curious are you a serious poker player? I think of poker players as not smiling but from your posts you clearly like to laugh and have fun,


    [​IMG] Yes, I do take poker very seriously, but you are right about me laughing and having fun.

    My first Sam Hober tie is being made as we speak (well, as I'm posting on a forum).

    Just ordered my first Sam Hober, a 3" navy grenadine that I'm very excited about.
