They look the same to me.

David can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the piccola is a slightly looser weave. They are however very similar.

according to the hober website the piccola is,

"A slightly larger weave than our Grenadine Garza Fina"

i havent looked close yet, but they do seem almost the same. i only chose different weaves due to the black being out of stock in the fina weave. needless to say, i am quite happy with both of them.

When choosing the width of the tie, do I specify the widest part of the tie (1.5" from the bottom) or another part of the tie?

Stitches & Kueller: very nice. I will have to try untipped on my next grenadines.

Burton, you turned that around very quickly!

I don't have the ties but I do have the swatches if that's any help. Midnight blue promoteo (left) against garza grossa:

Thanks for this. Problem now is I want the same color ties in different grenadine weaves. Decisions decisions....

Stitches and Kueller....thanks to you guys I'm definitely going 4 fold untipped, rolled edges. Your ties look great.

So I'm looking to get a couple of grenadines.. couple of questions:

1. Lined vs. Unlined? Is there any advantage to either?

2. Tipped vs. Untipped? Is it noticeable while being worn that the tie is untipped (i.e. can you see through it)? This isn't a dealbreaker, just want to be well-informed

3. Does David charge extra for hand-rolled edges? What about bar tack color?

4. Navy vs. slate? I can't decide! (And no, the proper answer is not both. heh.) I'm leaning toward slate but the navy is a strong contendor.
