PSA: $42 prometeo grenadines

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

So, Banana Republic now carries grenadines. This is a surprise to me. I doubt the wool lining is of the same quality as that of any of the usual suspects, but since grenadine is only made by two mills in Italy, the silk has got to be coming from either Fossati or Bianchi.

Too narrow for my tastes, but still a pretty solid deal.

You can purchase made in usa grenadines from Chipp 2 in NYC for a similar price.  3" wide.  Lots of colors.  All fina's though.

I haven't though he always offers one :-)

It's a seriously good deal on grenadine ties though. They aren't Hober's mind you.

You only "purchase" the dog tie in that you add it to your cart and pay for it.

But in the comments section you request a grenadine instead and that's what he sends you

Can you please that they are 3" wide and not 3.5".  I previously looked into the Chipp2 ties but I wanted something slimmer than 3.5"
