thanks! 3 5/8 i think. will be in action soon. look out for future fits.
What is the difference between the fina and the piccola weave?
They look the same to me.
David can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the piccola is a slightly looser weave. They are however very similar.
according to the hober website the piccola is,
"A slightly larger weave than our Grenadine Garza Fina"
i havent looked close yet, but they do seem almost the same. i only chose different weaves due to the black being out of stock in the fina weave. needless to say, i am quite happy with both of them.
When choosing the width of the tie, do I specify the widest part of the tie (1.5" from the bottom) or another part of the tie?
Widest part of tie as you stated above.
Anyone have a good interview Hober tie they recommend? Striped or dotted preferably
Fairly accurate photo of midnight blue fina.
4 fold, hand-rolled, un-tipped.
