    A little brighter than I expected; still shaping up to be a nice tie and it's been an awesome experience so far.

    I have two swatch sets that are a random assortment of swatches I specifically picked out. One is grenadines (some grossa, some fina) and one is mostly dots/spots with some other random stuff mixed in (paisley, Macclesfields, and other random stuff). Will mail them to the first person to PM me for each.

    Is this how they dye the fabric? with a paintbrush once the pattern is cut???

    I think that's them dying the wool interlining so it won't show through the weave of the grenadine.

    Yeah, that's the interlining, not the actual tie. It's a nice touch.

    I proposed last night and she said yes, gentlemen. I'm still not sure which tie I will wear at my wedding, but I definitely want to get myself a chocolate fina as a self wedding gift.

    Now, I just have to convince my parents that renting a tuxedo is NOT the classiest way to go.

    I'd go with the dark navy, but personally I'd choose the dark navy grenadine grossa.

    I would choose the grenadine grossa too!!

    I'm having a difficult time choosing between the midnight blue and dark navy.

    It looks so much better in the pic than on the website! Is it a 3 or 6 fold?

    Thanks. That one's a 3-fold. I have them leave the tie somewhat wider than normal higher up so I can get a good knot.
