    Here's a bitter chocolate unlined, untipped, 7-fold piccola grenadine. I hope this influences your decision to buy! Wore this to a site visit today.

    Question for David.

    Do you have any plans to introduce a greater variety of grenadine ties with stripes or pin dots in the future? I'd love to see some dark red or burgundy grenadines with stripes or pin dots in addition to the lovely midnight blue ones.

    My first foray into Hober ties, a dark chocolate grenadine garza grossa:

    It looks a little more burgundy in these pictures, but IRL exactly the shade of brown I was looking for.

    I think this may be the beginning of an expensive relationship!

    Some great looking ties, both the Macclesfield and dark chocolate grenadine. Hopefully my dark chocolate fina will be shipping soon!

    3.75". I just received 4 other ties in this order as well, will post pics as I wear them over the next week or so. Very happy with all of my new Hobers, this is the beginning of a great but expensive new hobby...

    Three new grenadines arrived today. Here is the current set:

    [​IMG]


    Left to right: Black (grossa), Navy (fina), Dark Navy (fina), Dark Chocolate (fina), Bitter Chocolate (fina).

    I had the dark chocolate and navy. The bitter chocolate, dark navy, and black are new. The dark navy order was a tactical error. The swatch set showed what I believed to be a much greater contrast between navy and dark navy. This picture exaggerates the difference between them. Sitting here with them in front of me, I can't tell which is which without looking at the tags on the back (the new set uses newer tags). There is definitely no good reason to have both. Oops.

    One can never have too many navy grenadines, especially when of Hober quality. There is absolutely good reason to have both. Nice ties. :)

    Now you can wear one out to dinners without fear of ruining it through spilling sauce or wine on it! If the unthinkable does happen, astonish your table by nonchalently removing the tie and throwing it away before pulling out your second navy Sam Hober and knotting it there and then. If it's a business dinner - guaranteed promotion right there.
