    Just received my blue-green/silver GG grenadine and navy GG grenadine yestrerday and could not be more elated about them. So much so, that I am genuinely considering wiping out most of current staples and replacing them with Hober GF/GG.

    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?

    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.

    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.
