Just ordered my first two Hober ties. Can't wait!
Which did you start with?
What happened to all of David's posts?!
Can someone explain to me the appeal of unlined ties? Is it one of those features that people want because it's uncommon? I have not handled one myself, but I imagine it would be lighter, and I like a heavier feeling tie.
Does anyone have this maroon flower tie: http://www.samhober.com/flower-silk...d-off-white-flower-on-maroon-silk-tie-31.html
I am curious how "maroon" it is. I want something far removed from red, but it does look very red on my monitor.
I do like the grenadine stripe ties, but are there any plans for grenadine dot ties?
I would only go unlined if the tie is a 7-fold. The extra silk makes up for the weight lost with the lining removed. 6-fold or less I would always suggest a lining.
I have a navy 4-fold, lined grossa and a 7-fold, unlined piccola; the unlined 7-fold is just slightly lighter than the lined 4-fold grossa.
These are on David's website. Right here.
The powder blue and brown on midnight blue striped grenadine and the maroon pin dot. If I like them, I think the bitter chocolate grenadine is next on my radar.
Great timing. I received my ties shortly after you responded...exactly thirteen business days from shipping confirmation as well. I'm really impressed with the quality.
Gonna buy a couple ties but I'm fairly tall at 6 ft 6 in, would probably get the 65in tie? I have questions on the width then and will the knot then have a good thickness. Anyone have any ideas of what options i should consider. What fold is best etc I'm bait lost.
Talk to David. He'll be able to easily address your concerns.
I'm not 6'6", but I have a large neck and absurdly long torso. As a result, I ordered 65" ties. I received them a couple of days ago and wore the Maccleafield today. I'm ecstatic with the quality and craftsmanship so far.
I went with 3.5 inch and three fold with the remaining standard options. I'm really pleased. My grenadines were 63" and four fold in accord with David's advice. I'd follow the advice on his web page for determining tie length. It worked perfectly for me. I'd also stick with standard options for your first order and then begin experimenting. That's my plan!
i'm 6'7' and go for a 63' tie. I have a long torso, which should also be taken into consideration. I'm not skinny, so I also opt for a 3.75' width.
