The advantage with the chocolate grenadine, and brown ties in general is it doesn't look too matchy with brown shoes like say a burgundy and burgundy shoes might. My perfect CBDish combo with that in mind would be charcoal/dark grey suit, light blue spread collar shirt, brown grenadine, brown captoes or Adelaide's and a complimentary square. But that same outfit can be worn very successfully with either a navy suit or a navy blazer & grey trousers.
Just a quick word on these new grenadines, they are selling quicker than I anticipated so if you want a 7 fold version but were holding out for the trunk show in Melbourne, they may well sell out before then. I already have a new order on the way for the trunk show of all 5 colours, however they will be 3 fold (classic construction) not 7 folds. Still self tipped but at a slightly lower price around $85. Once the show is done and dusted, I'll see what's left and order more and more than likely add some new colours as well.
