If anyone is debating whether to place an order from Sam Hober, just do it. My first order was last December, and I keep going back to Hober after trying some other excellent brands. I’ve sold a few of the ties I bought because they didn’t turn out to be a match for me, but the quality of every tie is consistently impeccable. David’s customer service is also outstanding. It’s also amazing how quick their turnaround is, including pretty cheap DHL express shipping.
