    Don't be shy about asking David for advice when you're thinking through construction options.

    Hi all

    My gf just put in an order for two ties as Christmas presents for me, both fina grenadines: a Dark red (with gold bar tack) and the much-loved Bitter chocolate (with cobalt blue bar tack, my mind was blown by the pictures posted of this a while back). 3.25" width.

    FWIW, David recommended a 56" length for me (I'm 5'10" and skinny).

    Anyway I'm stoked. Will post some sexy-ass photos when I get them (I'm a photographer in my spare time).

    My new favorite grenadine arrived this week..a grossa solid - dark purple/black. If you don't have one of these - get one. My grenadines are also my go to ties. Also got a reppe stripe #15, the one in david's avatar. It is also a great tie. I don't have any pictures. As always, great service and advice. Thanks David.

    Forgive the question, but I've searched and came up empty. I think grenadines are beauties (especially grossa); however, I don't know their formality--when to, when not to wear them. Are they acceptable for business suits, formal events, sport coats, or whatever you feel like? I feel the weave gives them an air of informality, but they look so formal at the same time.
