    You are too kind, sir. I look forward to seeing more pics of that tie. The one in your OP looks quite yellow in comparison to the image on Hober.com. I'm sure it's a lighting//monitor issue, though.

    I disagree...I get more compliments on my hunter green grenadine than any tie I own. Love to wear it with brown, navy and grey.

    FWIW, on my monitor, the burnt orange cashmere pictured just above looks almost exactly the same color as it does in real life. The one at the very top of the thread doesnt look like it at all--way more yellow than the tie actually is.

    im sure you will love it when you get it. btw its crazy thick, 3 fold is plenty imo.

    that might be the first useful thing ive accomplished on the forum to date :)

    making it is not so hard, but it doesnt last very long, eventually during the day I give up.

    So quick q: I'm getting two garza fina grenadines, bitter chocolate and another. I want a reddish grenadine, was thinking of burgundy, but perhaps that would be too close to the bitter chocolate? It is kind of brownish, as has been said before. Anyone go for a different shade of red and care to comment?

    I own both a burgundy and dark chocolate grenadines. I think there is room in the wardrobe to have both :)
