I'm certainly new here but IMO the grossa is far from a casual tie.  If the thought is that the grossa is less formal than the fina then maybe, but then we would be discussing differences at the very fringe (which is probably 99% of the conversations on this forum biggrin.gif).

 

I have ties in both weaves and would wear either to any type of business meeting or event.  Of course, as the pics that I post on this thread would indicate I don't always stick to the standard...

Anyway I was thinking for the next purchase I would get:

 

  • Solid burgundy reppe - Pair with both the navy and charcoal suit for job interviews and weddings.
  • Dark navy/white pindot - Pair with charcoal suit for job interviews and weddings (would possibly consider pairing with navy suit as well)
  • Black grossa grenadine - Mostly for funerals but from what I've seen they can be used in business settings. I personally feel a little unsure about wearing a grenadine for a job interview.

 

I'm just trying to get my essentials for now. So I think I'm covering job interviews, weddings, and funerals. I know that wedding ties are the traditionally official ties for weddings, but considering the fact that 99% of people don't even know what a wedding tie is, I wanted to exclude that from my list. Is this a decent start?

 

I feel that the navy grenadine I purchased earlier doesn't pair well with a navy suit (too monochromatic) and it is also not the best choice for a job interview because of the weave. But if people feel they are ok for job interviews, maybe I could change the burgundy tie to a grenadine? I know this is long :)

 

I don't qualify as a "more experienced member" but I'll weigh in.  I like all of your suggestions.  As to whether to do a reppe or grenadine burgundy I think it is a matter of which material you like best as both will work well.  I personally don't see any reason why a grenadine tie (in any weave devil.gif) would be inappropriate for a job interview.  Finally, navy ties with navy suits can look fantastic and is very CBD but it will depend somewhat on the shades of navy.

My goal is to have about 10 or so ties that can be paired with a solid navy suit and a solid charcoal suit (possibly a mid-grey in the future). I rarely need to wear suits. I only need them for weddings, job interviews, and fancy dinners. I suppose in 5-10 years I may need them more regularly for business, but even then I don't anticipate I'd need to wear them much. I work in corporate finance and companies can range from conservative to modern/hip. My company is conservative and the attire is business casual (wool pants, dress shirt, no tie, no jacket).

Anyway I was thinking for the next purchase I would get:
  • Solid burgundy reppe - Pair with both the navy and charcoal suit for job interviews and weddings.

I see nothing wrong with subtle textures or patterns for job interviews. I love my midnight or dark navy pindot but would hold off until tie 6. I think that in your first 5, you really should have something in the grey / silver range. I prefer this to navy when wearing a navy suit.

Burgundy - Reppe is fine, also consider pindot, madder twill or grenadine (you already have a couple grenadines so maybe skip the grenadine for this one)
Silver / Grey - There are many grenadine shades here. A conservative glen plaid or solid silk could also work well. The glen plaid crosses off both the grey and wedding tie category IMO.
Black - Stick with grenadine.

Once you have these and are looking to go from 5 to 10, feel free to add the dark navy pindot. I'd also get something in a lighter blue eventually, at least one light pink / purple / green tie and go from there to round out your collection.

Today's Hober is a black/white glen plaid (EPLT-9) in 6-fold construction.  Hope everyone has a good week-end!

Doesn't look like the #9 plaid is on the board anymore but the #8 looks just as nice.
