Can I trouble people for their thoughts on these ties for groomsmen?









I think I like the third one the best...

Meh, if it has to be one of those I'd go with #2, the others all look too shiny. If you want basically a solid silver with a small pattern/texture, why not just get a silver grenadine as posted above?

I'm pretty sure those pics are all from thetiebar.com, so I'm guessing (as was the case with me) that Ty wants to spend $15 per tie for his groomsman, rather than $70+ for each. smile.gif

But Ty, what are the groomsmen wearing? There still may be better options.

Because I have 8 of them to get and the ones in my post are from thetiebar and cost $15 each, but the Hober one (which is very nice I admit) is $80 each, so $120 versus $640. Weddings be expensive enough already.

Ha! Exactly. Morning suits. Grey striped trousers, dark grey coat and a silver waistcoat.

I had to buy 8 of my tie as well; I feel your pain and went through the exact same process.

I don't have much experience with the type of get-up you and your guys are doing so I'm sure someone else on the forum could make a better suggestion than me, if indeed there is something better than what you already proposed. I just did grey suits and blue ties with white dots for mine - plus pocket squares and tie bars all from thetiebar as well. MUCH cheaper than any other method and easy with the quick shipping. It would have been a nightmare trying to find 8 of the same tie in a retail setting, save maybe jcrew or banana, neither of which had the look i wanted or a price tag that made sense when buying so many.

I hear you. So, have you considered a silver Grenafaux, from The Tie Bar? Still $15.

Not that the four you listed are horrible.

Explain to her that unless she's suddenly decided to give you veto power over what her bridesmaids will be wearing, she doesn't get veto power over which neckties your groomsmen will be wearing.

Fair is fair, after all.

That's ridiculous. Those Grenafaux ties look much enter than any of those first five options. Bridezilla needs to let you call this one. Christ, man's not even allowed to pick out which shade of grey tie he can have for his wedding!

I've got a friend getting married, and he asked me to look for ties that have a tiffany blue color to them. Any suggestions?

x-post/bump from wedding thread...
with a Navy suit, is a Navy Shepherd's Check an overkill, or a similar patter in Black better? IMO, I can't go wrong with either one but the Navy offers more versatility..Thanks
post #164 of 177
Either is fine. I prefer black for the tie, though.

You mean because it's a navy suit, with a navy tie?

Naw, nothing inherently wrong about that. Some folks like it more than do others, but it's a classic look, so no reason to avoid it if it appeals to you.

Not better, just different. Some people would like it more than they would the navy shepherd's check, and others would like it less.

Personally, I'd slightly prefer the black shepherd's check tie for a wedding (with a navy suit), but I'd slightly prefer the navy one for non-wedding occasions. Honestly, you could flip a coin on this one. Or if you or your bride have a young child (or a young sibling, or a young nephew or niece) who is feeling left out of the wedding planning process, let him decide whether you will go navy or black. It's a genuine decision, and the child will be able to see proof, at the wedding, that his input was valued. He'll probably tell everyone that he chose which tie would be worn. It'll make him feel really happy and probably superior to the ring bearer and the flower girl.
