    This page on the Hober website might be helpful: https://www.samhober.com/a/grenadine/

    "Larger to smaller of the four Silk Grenadine weaves: Grossa, Prometo, Fina and Piccola."

    Here's my "Dark Navy Blue" prometeo #23:

    This is indoor light. It's fairly accurate but the blue definitely gets a bit brighter outdoors. If you were to only own 1 navy tie, this would get my vote. Not too dark, not too light. (Or the piccola version if you prefer the small weave grenadines.)

    Also, Hober white Belgian linen pocket square.

    Thank you sir, that's absolutely perfect! I'm actually going to add this to my order as that's the navy tone I'm looking for.

    I'm just trying to decide on width now. I think I'll order 3.625" for this one and 3.5" for the lighter color I want just to see which size I prefer before ordering more. I figure I can't go wrong with either size.

    Looks great. I should have picked one up before they sold out.
