I ended up with three ties and a square:

I pretty much only wear solid ties these days. If I had to, a black grenadine and a black knit are really all I need. It's such a simple, yet surprisingly sophisticated look. It's very sober and understated, but because not many people dress like that these days it still stands out for the right reasons.
I don't own a grenadine, and I'm in no rush, but black is the one I plan to buy when I do, and it may be the only solid gren I buy.
