A lined 3-fold construction is the classic. Consider a lined 6-fold if you like a heavier tie. Unlined 7-folds are an old-and complex construction.
Let us know your knot in the checkout notes area if it is a different knot from what we list above. Keep in mind that different knots need different lengths; as an example a half-Windsor usually needs two inches more length than a four-in-hand. This is due to the extra looping.
The length is measured from the tip of the big end to the tip of the small end. See our Tie Guide point number 6 for measuring help.
The drop down menu for the length range is for you to order a length range. For example 60.1 to 63 inches = plus $5. This will show on your invoice when you checkout.
Width is measured at the widest part of the tie there are no rules for the best width, it should be based on your body size and your personal preference. It is a sartorial myth that you should match your tie width to your jacket lapels.
The drop down menu for the width range is for you to order a width range. For example up to 4 inches = plus $5. This will show on your invoice when you checkout.
Classic Tipping has the same fabric in the triangular underside of the tie as the front of the tie. Rolled edges can only be added to ties without tipping - If you select different tipping tell us which tipping fabric in the checkout notes area.
A bar tack is a small stitch on the reverse side of the tie that helps to hold the tie together.
Normally men who are members of a regiment or other group in the UK wear a tie in the British stripe direction; the direction varies. The British direction has a charge because there is extra silk used. The American direction is the worldwide standard.
For special measurements etc. please ask before ordering at: customerservice@samhober.com Gift boxes are standard 2 ties to a box. For an extra charge we can pack ties one tie to a gift box.We use white tissue paper to wrap the ties.

1st Regiment US Army

The 1st Infantry Regiment of the United States Army traces its lineage to 1791 and the establishment of the 2nd Infantry Regiment. A year later the regiment was transformed into a component of the Legion of the United States, a combined arms force of infantry, artillery, and cavalry. Since its establishment the regiment has seen action in 39 campaigns including the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, World War II, Vietnam, as well as the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 

The regiment’s coat of arms bears a field of blue, the color of the Infantry branch, as well as a field of red, the color of the old Legion of the United States. The notches on the diagonal band represent the campaigns the regiment has participated in. In a nod to its history the regiment is still know as “the Legion” and veterans and current members refer to one another as “Legionaries”.

 

Please visit our Tie Guide page for help with your measurements - please note that the amount of stretch varies as is based on how often you wear your tie and how tightly you make your knot etc. Only you can decide your correct length.
