Kulata, I've heard from a couple people that Chipp grenadines have very thick linings and as a result don't tie very good knots.

@jungleroller no experience with the ties at all but the company that makes them have a good reputation and it's also made in the USA using imported silk from Italy. Sounds too good to be true

Putthison recommends the ties and I read somewhere on askandy that it ties good knots. I guess I just have to find out myself but in terms of color choices I made. Deal or no deal?

@DerekS has a few Chipp grenadines, perhaps he can comment on the knots. I think he is very happy with them.

@jrd617 sold his, if I recall, due to the knots.

 

I do like the color choices. Also, Henry Carter has some 7 fold grenadines for sale for like 80 bucks.

@jrd617 selling his won't sway me otherwise. He is way more picky than I am and I haven't even seen any of his fits so... biggrin.gif

We all have priorities in our lives. This could be children, a house in a better neighborhood, taking care of family members, etc. I do not judge people based on what kind of cars they drive. I know some idiots who live in  a roach infested apartment with 4 roommates while driving a nice new Benz. I just shake my head. So what was I saying? To put it simply, it would be nice for Clags to have a nice car to go with his nice wardrobe, that's all. I started off with a 1987 Honda Civic Si hatchback in 2000 and drove that @ss into the ground...actually the front axal snapped. I live off of something called a parkway, where dickheads run red lights because they're going so fast (around 80 miles/hour) when the speed limit is 50. So I need something that will be fast enough to speed up.

I could not tie a cappelli for the life of me. It would create a tiny knot no matter what I did and the rest of the tie was just fat as heck. I will never order from him. Very rude.

I do agree it's idiotic though.

Chipp's tie a fantastic knot every single time. I'm going to be grabbing a couple more of their grenadines shortly because of how great they are to tie.

I actually have a harder time getting a good knot out of Chipp grenadine tie's then I do others that I own.  I bought a few a few years ago that are downright flimsy.  I bought another just last year that feels like it has a thicker lining and that one is ok.  The rest I got rid of.  I asked him if they changed anything and he said no, but handling the more recent one vs the older it was obviously thicker and heavier.
