    Does anyone know if Marinella makes a solid navy tie? I have a few of there prints and whenever i see them on ebay or someone selling them there always prints. Does anyone know if BG would have one? thanks.

    I think that FIH (Jonathon) may have (had?) a Marinella navy grenadine.

    Yes, at least I'm 99% sure as I have a Marinella tie (made in Naples though- I didn't bespeak it) that is a nice heavy black twill. But I guess they'll have it as a solid navy tie is essential for any well-dressed Italian.

    He has mail, but i dont see any posted on his website and i usually check it somewhat frequently. A grenadine would be mah-velous!

    If that's not the color you want, try Paul Stuart, Ben Silver or J Press.

    Oh your a kind man! my vision is not what it used to be. Does that look like navy to you or is it a bit lighter? could just be the screen.

    It looks lighter than navy to me, but I have a very similar grenadine from Ben Silver and it's very versatile.

    I got the most wonderful solid navy 180's wool tie last year from Kiton. It's hard to explain when you don't have pattern, texture or color to play off of what makes this tie so great. If I took a picture of it it wouldn't look special. But in the hand. The way it ties. The knot it makes is so full and rich and has such great casual presence. It's almost scarf like if that helps. It isn't rigid and stuffy. I got it in Dallas at Stanley Horshack(sp?). I don't know if they or Kiton in N.Y. could help you as it was some time ago but if it's that simple elegant look you're going for cheap doesn't cut it try to track down the Kiton.

    I prefer lighter rather than darker ties so my first pick would be FIH's Marinella but if you are going to go for the Italian-look dark navy tie, it would be hard to do better than this one:

    Nice find Ed!

    He also has a black/silver Udeshi grenadine which is stunning in its beauty and simplicity [​IMG]

    Do you have any direct experience with Udeshi ties? How do they compare?

    My understanding is that they are RLPL quality silks with somewhat better construction. I will be buying one and will get back to you as to the quality.

    I have a couple of his grenadines and I think that they are quite nice. I also have a maroon version of the Marinella grenadine, and it is nice too. I would say that quality is equal. The grenadine weave, however, is very different. Udeshi's is a tighter weave and Marinella's is rather loose.

    Thank Matt (and guys) for the speedy responses. IIRC, didn't he recently open a Savile Row shop for bespoke?
