Another "is this a Grenadine tie?" thread

I've never seen a repp grenadine tie. Is this garza fina or some other weave type?

You can see the wood surface underneath because it's an unlined tie.

Confirmed garza fina example:

Maybe you have.

I've added a picture of confirmed example of Garza fina (off white color).

The "holes" in the weave on the off-white tie are arranged differently than on my tie.


I usually think of "knit" ties as having larger diameter yarn and square ends. And looser weaves.

Is this just some kind of "gauze"/jacquard that is somewhat reminiscent of Garza Fina when viewed from afar?

Your striped tie could be a grenadine. (All my grenadines are lined, so I can't easily see through the weave.)

But your second one doesn't look like one--too open a weave.

These are closeups of Sam Hober Grenadine Garza Fina Solid Ties:

Just get some grenadine swatches from Sam Hober.

The off-white tie comes from the Sam Hober website. It is definitely Garza Fina.

I don't have a microscope to get that close.

Could someone help me figure out if this is a grenadine tie? Thanks.

Bobbers,


The silk in your photos are not grenadines.

Would this be considered a grenadine?
