Although, fairly recently they upped the 48 hr allowance to $800.  Which is nice for weekend or 2 day business trips!

post #2852 of 4449

It has been a couple of years (since 2012) that it has been at that. Don't get too excited because the Junior T might decide to roll back on that increase back to pre-Harper one as well as he did with a bunch of other conservative changes

Hey guys,

Noticed that there aren't alot of local options for grenadine ties. Here are a few:

These ones are very hefty. And decent price.

These ones are unlined, hence the higher MSRP compared to other Eton ties:

How is the quality of Altea and Eton ties? I have never handled either. Personally I would rather get unlined E.G. Cappelli for $185.
post #2855 of 4449
Eton is ok. But 185 is a bit much.

The altea ones are good for the price. It's hard to find a grenadine locally in Toronto. And they're pretty hefty too.

I came across this issue a few years back which led me to discover Paul Winston's chipneckwear.com. Not local (NYC) unfortunately but very reasonably priced. The grenadines are quite stiff though, not the airy and light type some prefer. But they work for me and at 55 bucks (USD) they are a decent deal.

Check out henry carter. He has amazing ties. Also David fin. I have ties from both and they're well made. Who in their right mind is going to spend close to $200 for a tie?

The Altea is wool/silk, which would be nice right now (winter). 

 

I have grenadines from Kent Wang (great, but get pulls easily), Chipp (OK, but tie a fat knot), and Shibumi (the nicest, but also the most expensive). I don't know of any local options. I think others have said saks or holt renfew may have had Drake's grenadines on occasion, but I think that may be done.

 

I'm going to have Sam Hober make a brown one soon in brown. A lot of members say that they are the best.

 

I've been harassing @SPIER & MACKAY to make grenadines for a couple of years now, but no dice. 

post #2859 of 4449

Yeah I'll also drop in a Henry Carter rec.  Should be around 120ish shipped CAD?   

 

 

Or PM styleunicorn on Ebay.  I got 2 Drakes off him for less than advertised.   Not sure if there is any left, but ask him.  Toronto local.

Holt's had a black grenadine made by Dion (made in Canada; they make good ties).

But the MSRP was higher than typical Dion ties. It was nice though.
post #2861 of 4449

That is pretty pricey. I get grenadine ties at the local shop here for less than $40. and they are self-lined ( I believe that they are actually 3 fold or 5 fold). The choice of colors is limited but the quality is good.

 

harry is only good for ties during their semi-annual sale when things are at 60-70% off.

Sorry, not local to Toronto. Local shop in Montreal on Peel st.

post #2864 of 4449

Never bought from them but apparently located locally. Has Knottery grenadines for an OK price, but the best part is that it's in CAD not USD:

 

http://www.jedisonmenswear.com/collections/neckties/3-0-regular-ties

 

And for the members that shared their tailoring experiences, I decided to go to both Xavier and Magic, a jacket each. FWIW, Magic charged $65 (no tax, but I paid in cash, YMMV for CC) for taking in the sides around the underarm area, turnaround time was a week. Will drop by Xavier when I go pick up the jacket from Magic.

Interesting, but if you are going to specify "Toronto" right on your site then there should be a location where I can go to in order to see the wares. Otherwise it's irrelevant where you're based out if (unless those of us also located in Toronto receive some sort of perk that I'm unaware of).
