    Thoughts on this tie? Its todays fit. I don't think it works with my SC but I was eager to wear this SC as I just got it back from the tailor. It's a vintage Bloomingdales I got from another member on here. I like it, but I don't think it works in todays fit.

    Here's my 2 cents...the tie is too dark to go with the jacket.

    I have two Cappelli grens coming :slayer:

    -Black fina
    -Blue grossa


    BTW, this pic was a little further down from the grenadine comment

    I need a soot in this color. Had one, but then I sold it. :(

    No I backed out of a tie purchase due to needing tires and having to deal with that extra expense and Jrd was just bustin my chops a bit.

    Thanks. Are these considered much better for the ~+$28 difference?

    JRD,

    What was your personal experience with both Sam Hober grenadine ties and Cappelli ties?
    Can you just describe to us?

    Thanks
    (What the heck? I thut I was writing an email at work)

    All I can say is that Sam Hober has faster delivery (if you pick DHL) and more responsive. I've not heard anything back from Cappelli ever since I made a payment and I have no idea what the heck is going on with my tie. Also, Sam Hober grenadines make one hell of a nice knot with 4IH. I have no Cappelli to compare them to so I defer to JRD.

    ^ Zero experience with either. Just going on what others are saying.

    I do own a few Hober neats

    Hober = One of the best companies to do business with online, hands down.
