    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Jr: Order the swatches from Hober before ordering ties as the colors on the website are not always accurate. For example, I have the swatch for the brown neat in front of me now and the purple is much more prominent in the swatch than in the picture. In addition to color issues, you can also get a better feel for the different grenadine weaves if you order the grossa and fina swatches.

    I've had more than one occasion with Hober ties where I thought I knew my next tie purchase until I received the swatches.

    That was last week and new tires are on. I slid through one too many intersections this winter. This is preplanning for this fridays paycheck usage. [​IMG] Do you have ties still fs? [​IMG]

    I have the Hober forest green grenadine fina and love it. The bitter chocolate grenadine fina is also a good one to pick up:

    I race cars (relatively cheaply, but there really isn't cheap car racing) and I'm in a band. Both require rent and equipment.

    No worries. Was just surprised that I hadn't heard about it before.
    In the wild, in case it helps. [​IMG]

    Road courses. I can't imagine spending all that money for 10 seconds or less of racing.

    JR,

    this is a better representation of the green Carter. It's a good spring summer tie. Probably wouldn't wear it deep into fall.

    Mr Six I like that SC! Deets?

    A thought wrt Jungleroller (but also in general):

    I'm not completely sold on the combination although the individual pieces are nice. I do think that these city/casual things can look nice, especially in a context where one wears various fits throughout the week. In the overall context of the fits one wears in a week, mixing it up can be playful etc.

    But since JR has a lot of strongly patterned SCs and is rebuilding his tie collection, I wonder if he should focus so much on neats as opposed to grenadines, other solids, and some nice wool patterned ties. A rust donegal with this jacket would be pretty awesome; or even a rust/burgundy grenadine (grossa). Just a thought.

    Thanks y'all for all the tie recommendations! That's 4 ties that you all have picked out for me. One more coming and I don't know where the Cappelli is.
    I think I might have been brainwashed with images from GQ and others but I think I've turned the corner. Here's to you all who helped out.
