    You didn't happen to see any 48S sport coats/suits, did you? It seems like I'm in-between those two sizes but I remember checking them out last summer when I was more of a Size 36 and they told me that they (naturally) don't stock that size.

    Don't recall. But you should give them a call.

    Would anybody be interested in a group buy for grenadine ties? Not trying to flip - want to help fellow Torontonians get access to high quality grenadine ties!

    RL Purple label has these ties on sale for $69 US and they don't ship to Canada, but I can get a hold of them.

    http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/...bel&s=D-DollarRank&fg=Brand&parentPage=family

    All in, it would come out to less than $100 CAD (includes shipping from US).

    $69 US = Approx $88 CAD. We would split the cost of shipping from US (another few bucks, depending on how many people jump aboard).

    Let me know!

    I'd be down to try the PL. Just wondering if you know what construction of this tie is? unlined or self lined?

    Yes. But I bought from othertravel before and will be paying additional postage.

    What's the chance they have them in store in Chicago (where I'm currently at)?

    It's unfortunate they're only 3" wide. If they were 3.35" or 3.5" I'd be in.

    Agreed - I don't understand the ubiquity of 3" ties - especially as lapels are finally getting wider...

    My first thought as well. I'm a bit petite so prefer around 3.25.

    I would understand it under the old Black Label where all the lapels are narrow, but under Purple Label it doesn't match the lapel width.

    Hard to tell. Looks unlined.

    Let me know if anybody wants to get on board.

    Locally, Holts sells Dion grenadines, but they're $150 + tax.

    Drake's ties? That is steep!

    Keep an eye out on Leathersoul's last pairs insta, they've got some drakes ties that they sell off at decent prices.

    Quoting an older post in this thread in order to report that I just bought one of these ties during the increased reductions at HR yesterday (some items are now 60% off). I actually wasn't even thinking that it's a grenadine tie because it's mostly wool, but the weave certainly suggests that it is. About $44 before tax (less than $50 after). A really great looking tie for the cooler months, but I agree with the comment that it is very "hefty" due to both the material and the interlining. I tried tying a knot once I got home and it took a few attempts before I managed to make a 4-in-hand that didn't create a huge knot.

    Anyone know if Simon's carries MMM GATs in white? Their online inventory makes me think not all items are listed.

    FYI they have the plaster GATs and tan high paint splatters on sale. Hoping to snag a pair of plain white or white splatter.
