I received the new silver grenadine from Henry Carter today, and I am very happy with the quality and attention to detail in making. It has a nice drape without being too thick (which for me kills the flow of the tie). It also has a much more formal look than the large weave and there is no chance of mistaking it for a knit, and it also feels more snag proof than the larger weave. It is thinner around the neck than the blade, so it should tie a thicker knot well if required.
I saw some Borrelli and Stefano Ricci ties the other day, and these loose little to them, with obviously a much lower expenditure.
Make me a burgundy and gold/yellow stripe next Jason!
Thanks and glad you are happy with it. Will have a look for you for the burgundy stripe when choosing next seasons stuff. Talking about Borelli & SF, my tie makers in Naples while being not huge company, also make for the likes of Brioni and Ralph Lauren, which gives you an idea of the sort of quality they stand up against.
