    Scurvy - very nice. Suprisingly I do not have a black grenadine in my collection...I'll have to change that.

    in stitches - thank you! It is always time to place an order with David...

    tdude - thank you! The #87 is awesome [​IMG]

    Enthusiasm - thank you! My dark purple diamond weave is the standard 3-fold construction and is lined. The diamond weaves are pretty substantial so I don't feel the need to go to 6-fold construction.

    You and I must have the same taste. I also have both the dark (forest) green and the dark purple diamond weave ties (albeit in 6-fold configuration). They only one you are missing is navy :D

    Today's Hober is the dark red fina grenadine (4-fold construction). Not the best photo...

    Cross-posted from the Friday Challenge thread. Green is a bit lighter IRL.

    Does anyone have any pictures of Macclesfield #117 in real life? Thinking of getting this for Summer and do not want to wait for swatches, but I'm thrown for a loop a little bit by the "reddish purple" description of color.

    I don't have that one but now that you have turned my attention to it and David has restocked his diamond weaves and has some new oxford weaves I may have to include it in a new order...[​IMG]

    Today's Hober is the english geometric silk #21 (3-fold construction). Photo is a little washed out as the blue is a touch brighter/darker IRL.

    I ended up ordering swatches today. 116 and 117 looked too different between my phone, home computer and work computer to pull the trigger.

    Looking at the picture, I'm realizing I should have posted a close-up. Here it is:

    Looks great! I have the same tie in brown with sky blue dots. Really like it.

    Recently placed my next order with David. Forest Green rough thai silk and a burgundy madder twill.

    Dark red grossa. Finally figured out how to get some detail of the weave in an iphone photo. Needed to face the window on a brighter day.

    I have both but this thread is making me draw the same conclusion. Now I just need to wait for the diamond weave swatches to arrive.

    What's the difference between the "reppe solid silk" and "twill madder solid silk"? Both seem to have a diagonal twill texture. I'm thinking I'll have to get a navy twill as my first 7-fold sometime. :smarmy:
