    Anon,

    We have wedding ties at $80 and like all our Sam Hober ties are completely bespoke so we start with a roll of silk and make the tie as you wish. length, width, shape, construction and so on..

    #11 & #12 are temporarily are here:

    And we plan to add many more in the future.

    Great! Thanks. How long does each tie take to make?

    Currently orders are being made in about 2 weeks. To make a 3-fold tie takes about 2 hours and we will keep your pattern on file for future orders.

    David, do your plans include a black and white shepherd's check or houndstooth? Like this shepherd's check: [​IMG]

    Greekonomist, While I could not see the pattern very well in the photo I can give a strong yes as my answer. I personally like classic ties and we do well with traditional designs. Our long term goals are to have on hand all the basics in black and white as well as other colors. On hand means always not as seasonal offerings. If you can show me a close-up photo that will be very helpful. Disregarding the color here are some similar designs woven in English silk: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks. Those houndstooths look great. Unfortunately I don't have a close up, but it seems to be a slightly larger-scale version of the Lands' End tie Parker posted above.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but are these rules for the groom/groomsmen or all guests?

    I would be interested in the answer to this question as well.

    When did Land's End begin carrying the London Lounge Club Tie?

    ^ mehhh. Okay for around 20 bucks on sale. They're kinda "flat", not a lot of bounce back in them.

    I heartily recommend Hober ties, though. And yes, David, it would be great to have a shepherd check. Maybe with 1/4 inch check in gray/black or gray/navy.

    Try telling that to the guys at LL. The LE is a gingham (b/w shepherd check?) and more closely resembles Gary Cooper's, while theirs is a 'faux pois'.

    Have you looked at Kent Wang's? The range is a little limited, but what he has is excellent, as is the quality and price. And he is domestic (I have visited his home to buy in the past!).
    [​IMG] I have this in six-fold, made in Italy. $85.

    I'm of that age where everyone one knows becomes married off. I have a vintage, wide Turnbull & Asser similar to the one above but in red and white which I used most recently here in Accra; I'll possibly look up Sam Hober and Kent Wang when I return to the UK

    It must be interesting living in Accra especially with two rainy seasons. Thailand's rainy season is just now starting. Turnbull & Asser makes beautiful ties a dark red and white would look good. I assume you mean a dark red rather than a bright one.

    ^ It's more a houndstooth "effect" tie, made up of squares that resemble the pattern from differing angles and lighting; certainly one to trick the eye a little

    The red is quite pale but seems stronger and shimmering due to the way the silk catches light. I'd have preferred a darker red, especially for a wedding, but it is indeed very well made. I've been meaning to acquire a more traditional wedding tie for some time, although I have one or two capable substitutes

    I feel the same way about Thailand. Our first rainy season has started here; whilst this one favours relatively short downpours, they become more prolonged during the second

    Actually Thailand is indeed going through interesting times and I think that the rains will cool things off....

    Have you been to Bonwire near the Asante capital of Kumase?

    I have seen photographs of some beautiful silk.

    ^ Yes indeed. My family is Ashanti and I was taken to Bonwire by my mother over 10 years ago to see the weavers at work - whilst I have this time here, I hope to go again. She gave me a Kente silk tie and pocket square set for my birthday last year

    I've been meaning to source some shirting fabrics; the prints here are also ideal for waggish and bold pocket squares and scarves, which I know at least one fellow already does here. A friend's wife has established a womenswear line based around those prints; I also have a cousin who's a dressmaker. Her tailor may be able to realise my shirts

    I have a Thai silk necktie but I forgot it in London. I blogged about your pocket squares yesterday as I've always liked your website
