    ^ Weird. In the second pic I see so much dark blue -- almost purple. Must be the lighting. Regardless, gorgeous tie!

    Thanks, I like it very much also. You are right about the light though... the brown and blue can play games with your eyes. Makes it a little more interesting I think.

    I just received my Hober bitter chocolate grenadine garza grossa and white linen pocket square. Love 'em.

    DBCooper,

    What was the construction on your tie? 4 fold or 6 fold, lined or unlined?

    Standard 4-fold construction. I think there's some lining too, but I didn't specify anything unusual in that regard.

    Hey there,

    I have three sets of swatches I'm offering up for free. One per person. US only. And please promise to forward on to another good home once you're done with them.

    1) "New - Macclesfield Silk Print" -- I think there are 20 in the set; pics are not yet up on samhober.com.
    2) Diamond Weave silk
    3) Random grab bag -- I have about 20 assorted swatches, between 2 and 4 in the following categories: pin dot grenadine, cotton, linen, wool challis, cashmere, grenadine grossa.

    PM if you're interested. I'll drop them in the mail tomorrow.

    Been wanting this tie every since I saw this post last year. Finally got it last week, after a long delay due to out-of-stock fabric. Well worth the wait! Thanks, David!

    Crappy iPhone pics of my latest haul:

    Left to right: Macclesfield Print #84, Burnt Orange Diamond Weave, Forest Green Grenadine. First two are standard lined 3-fold, last is lined 4-fold. All are 3 1/2" wide and kept slightly wider higher up to tie a longer (taller?) knot.
