    BE CAREFUL with the Sam Hober red because they may look like burgundy but they are actually red. Sam Hober makes the best grenade ties!

    Hober kills it with grenadine. Size of weave is really personal preference, with the smaller weaves technically being a tad more formal.

    Love that brown neat and the Panta.

    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.
