Thanks. So exactly how does it differ from the standard makeup? Rolled rather than folded?
Right. And nothing behind the tie at the tip. No lining no additional fabric (another piece of the same fabric used on the front of the tie (“self tipped”) is common

(flipping my tie over to see the difference with the hand-rolling): I like it! Thanks for posting the pics. I had wondered about about hand-rolling. I like the Hober self-tipped much more than the usual tipping on ties, but I have never done the untipped.

I keep telling myself that I am not going to buy new ties. But this thread is making me want to go and get a new bunch of Hobers. I can rationalize that I will at least donate some of my older ones that I no longer wear much when the new ones arrive.

It is irresistible, isn't it? I just more or less wiped their stock of striped sangdao silks out ordering a set of neckties that I intend to wear when my organization returns to the office. (We got an informal indication that this would be sometime in may, which was later clarified to not apply to most employees, but not before I had already ordered the neckties) It does not help that I seem to be developing an inordinate fondness for pocket squares and usually keen to have another bowtie or two for my collection.

I think "standard" construction for Hober ties is self tipped.

Generally there are three types of finishing on the tips of a tie,

1) Decorative tipping (a complementary color of fabric used to tip the tie, similar to the lining of suit jacket/sport coat) https://www.ties.com/blog/tie-anatomy#:~:text=A self-tipped tie is,the rest of the tie.
2) Self tipped, tipped using the same fabric as the tie

3) Untipped/handrolled (one choice, two words) As depicted in @James1051 pic

I know very little about silk shantungs and these sangados, but I really like the way they look. The different fabric selections at Hober are amazing. I was initially drawn by their having materials that I am always looking for (ancient madder, wool challis, Irish poplin) which have become much harder to find in general and when found are often priced at a significant premium elsewhere.

Great, thanks for explaining. So it's a bit thinner at the tip?

Whiskey and a new Hober are always a good way to kick off the week.
