+1, that charcoal/silver is absolutely gorgeous. Especially in that photo with bright light and some blues tones around it.

Which do you all find more versatile between the dark chocolate and the bitter chocolate?

I can't believe they arrived in time for my trip next week- 5 business days order to delivery in Washington, DC.

 

Very nice scurvyfreedman.  :slayer::slayer:

 

I love the look of the plum rough silk, it is now added to my list. :nodding:

 

The only thing better than getting some ties from David is getting them before you thought you would! :D

I think of them as equally versatile.

I have both in grossa.  I wore both with dark grey suits, and then I wore both with navy.  I wore the bitter (the darker) with a brown-check Caruso suit and rocked that thing.  I wouldn't give either up!

The tie aside, that is a really fantastic suit.

Is that the same one you took the madder picture with?

Thanks fellas. Rc121, mine is standard construction. It is an amazing tie.

Scurvy, absolute must see that rough silk tie in action!

Thank you sir! Yes, it is the same suit as the one with the madder.

Is the bitter chocolate in non-grenadine fabric also versatile?

Certainly.  Which one are you considering?

Perhaps white folks be afraid of red. Us coloured folk wear red a plenty and it do look good too.

I was at a wedding last night and spilled some food on my grenadine 4-fold.  Do you guys have your grenadine ties dry-cleaned with success?  I see no other way to clean these stains.  Thanks for any input.

What kind of stains are they?

I managed to spill some pasta on one of mine, but luckily it just left grease stains from the sauce, no color or any matter, just fat that soaked into the tie. I just used some baking soda on that and it came right out. Talcum powder is the best I think, but any sort of very dry powder (cornstarch is another one) will usually help absorb the moisture and pretty much suck the grease out. Of course if you've spilled something like tomato-sauce with a lot of red color or something, then talcum might not be enough, but for clear grease stains it does wonders. What I did is cover the stain in baking soda and give it a few hours, then I piled some baking soda on a handkerchief and put the tie down on top of it with the stain on top of the pile and used a steam iron to give it a little bit of warm steam, not much but just some warm moisture as I figured this would help the stain loosen up a bit and soak into the powder. Worked great, stain went away completely.

So when you are done, you just brush the power off?  Baking soda won't leave excess powder that is hard to get off?

Seems like a safe bet.  You would not trust your tie to a regular dry cleaner I guess....
