Brooks Brothers Black Fleece wool, and Suit Supply wool

 

Hober grenadines -- burgundy piccola, midnight navy grossa, black grossa

 

Chipp2 grey grenadine, Paul Stuart navy grenadine. I don't think the Paul Stuart is a "real" grenadine, but it's still a very nice tie:

 

Two other silk ties from Tie Room, which are not quite as soporific:

 

I actually spent a few days reading through this thread before I fell asleep each night.


Beautiful collection...compliments..

Thanks, but there's not much to tell, I'm afraid. Got it off Ebay for a handful of $$$. It's an oldie from Sorelle Fontana in Rome.

I have a tie labeled "A. Dunhill, London" but it's not the usual Dunhill logo.
Anyone know anything about Dunhill ever using a different label, or is it a fake of some sort?



I've just seen the exact duplicate of this tie on ebay, but in very bad condition, where it's described as a 7 fold.

Quick question: Should a grenadine tie be untipped?

Not for me

Untipped grenadine is somewhat transparent, which is a little too weird for me.

I have one from Vanda that's untipped but I treat it as a knit-tie equivalent.

Thanks for the replies, you steered me away from the untipped versions, as I'm planning to use it in a conservative environment (law firm).

Biggest issue with un-tipped grenadines is they stretch a lot and generally need to be treated with more care than a self tipped version.

Would this be considered Soporific? Or at least, in good taste? I'd say it is at least the latter.
