    deadly7, please post pics when you receive the ties. I'm interested in the exact same fabrics.

    Okay, so my ties arrived today, and they're amazing. I'll try and find someone with a better camera than me and get some pictures up for you guys. I can't even begin to describe how amazing they are/look/feel. And since I know David monitors this thread, the bowtie fits PERFECTLY and looks great. Very individual and I love it!

    About a month ago I received my first quality ties since learning about sf. These were my purchases from Sam Hober:

    1. Macclesfield #84
    2. Grenadine Prometeo Navy
    3. Macclesfield Silk Pocket Square #23

    I really love the grenadine as it's my first one. I've never really noticed this kind of tie on someone else but it looks great. Both of my ties were four-in-hand knots. The grenadine tie is thick and a basic FIN knot is sizable IMO. Anyway I'm thinking of picking up some more Hobers soon. I definitely vouch for these ties.

    David,

    any news on when you'll be re-stocking your cashmere black warp ties? The majority seem to have been out of stock for a while.

    Thanks in advance.

    Has anyone tried the solid reppes from David? I got ahold of the swatches but they seemed to have a bit more sheen than I like. Curious to know how it makes up in person.

    Anyone can suggest me 1 navy and 1 burgundy tie in any of the gabardine selections? Worn with a dark navy suit (can be mistaken for black you can say).

    And what are you gents thoughts on a brown tie with navy suit and black shoes? Also, what is the standard length? I would prefer a 57"

    Would like to cover the essentials. FWIW I am looking at these two but I feel I can do better with a different navy:

    Burgundy

    Browns

    or
    http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-grossa-solid-silk-ties/bitter-chocolate-grenadine-silk-tie-6.html

    Perhaps Mr. Hober can enlighten me. TIA

    Sorry for the iPhone pic.

    Received my tie today super quick (was very surprised!). I am very impressed with the quality of this tie. David Hober also has one of the best customer services I have ever come across too.

    Grenadine Grossa 4-Fold, Self tipped with purple bartacks
