Thanks Grenadine ties are always finished in a triangle. Knit ties are square. Grenadine is a woven silk and is constructed just like any other tie of woven silk. Knit ties are knit silk and must be constructed differently. Whilst the two look similar, they are not related.

Quote: Originally Posted by Reevolving Is there any way to get grenadine ties without spending $80+ ? It depends on the type of grenadine. This type of grenadine can't be found more cheaply than from Sam Hober for $80: This type can be found from Paul Winston and J Press for much less: You can find both types of grenadine ties on ebay, used and new, for a lot less.

A grenadine ties would be great if you want texture: http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-si...ilk-tie-7.html David Hober can make any width you like.
It can definitely be brought up. The button stance should still look fine after you shorten the jacket 1.5 in. If the pockets end up looking too close to the bottom, tuck in the flaps. If there are vents, they might end up being a little short but still okay. Make sure you have the sleeves shortened, by about an inch.

My thought is a vest with deep scoop would stand out and be traditional but a lot of them are lapel-less or have the a squared-off peudo-shawl collar - not sure if either is good idea. So does a notch lapel dinner jacket. For a waistcoat, the squared-off lapels are traditional.
Linen is cooler.
