    You have to add the product page URL from samhober.com first. [​IMG]

    Sam Hober made my first real tie out of forest green cashmere and it's the most substantial feeling tie I've ever held. I don't think I'll be getting my ties from anyone else anytime soon.

    Thanks, guys.

    Thanks. That's what I thought. I'm not sure why (besides that I love brown and blue) it had to be
    cobalt blue, but that's what it had to be. I asked David if it was possible and he asked me to send
    a photo for colour reference. That was this one (not mine):

    [​IMG]

    It didn't have to be that exact colour, just a very saturated mid blue, and that's precisely what I got.

    (Sorry for the long story about such a small detail, but I think it's great that personal wishes like
    that are met with enthousiasm.)

    ^ Thats cool - although if you stare at that jar of powder for more than 3 seconds, you go blind.

    Sure...here's a picture although the overall color in real life is a bit more mustard than this picture shows:

    LOL, no problem...individual preference...I have all of my suits made with notch lapels, and all of my sport coats with peak. FYI, the real color of the fabric is close to the originally posted swatch in post number 173.

    Amazing pics NOBD! Live the colors of the tack with that brown. What width did you choose, if you don't mind me asking?

    You convinced me to ask relatives for a Hober tie for christmas, aha. Thinking of a bitter chocolate garza grossa, or fina? I have a navy Panta fina so I want to try out a garza. Thinking of a sky blue tack (or robins egg blue), maybe 3.2" for the width. Still mulling over some colors.

    David, what are your options for construction? Do you make six/seven folds, unlined? I'm considering a lightly lined six fold, not sure if that will turn out too thick though. Great, great stuff. I covet your whole tie catalogue.
