    No I backed out of a tie purchase due to needing tires and having to deal with that extra expense and Jrd was just bustin my chops a bit.

    Thanks. Are these considered much better for the ~+$28 difference?

    JRD,

    What was your personal experience with both Sam Hober grenadine ties and Cappelli ties?
    Can you just describe to us?

    Thanks
    (What the heck? I thut I was writing an email at work)

    All I can say is that Sam Hober has faster delivery (if you pick DHL) and more responsive. I've not heard anything back from Cappelli ever since I made a payment and I have no idea what the heck is going on with my tie. Also, Sam Hober grenadines make one hell of a nice knot with 4IH. I have no Cappelli to compare them to so I defer to JRD.

    ^ Zero experience with either. Just going on what others are saying.

    Hober = One of the best companies to do business with online, hands down.

    Huh? Why dont you try emailing?

    I've been getting lots of fast responses from Cappelli, asking about his stock of unlisted silks, etc. He also said my new ties are in the works

    What?! Sam Hober emailed me within a day of placing my order and asked for specifics and kept in touch. Just better customer service and love the quality of their stuff. I have zero experience with Cappelli...besides making a payment.
