    i was going to reply in length, but david did a better job than i could have anyways.

    moral of story is, different strokes for different folks, but an unlined grenadine can be just fine. its a finish that i like, others may not. :)


    interesting, thank you for that clarification.


    :slayer: GO FOR IT!!! regarding lining, talk to david and do whatever he says. guaranteed win.

    Per David's excellent description above, I will probs go with unlined 7-fold, untipped, handrolled edges. When that black fina is back in, I'm ordering!!

    totally cool to wait, but just so you know, the one in my pic is the,

    "Carbon Black Piccola Grenadine Silk Tie # 6"

    just want to be clear thats all. the navy in my pic is fina though. either weave will be all win all the time.

    Glad you're excited! I don't need it ASAP, so I have no problem waiting a week until the fina comes in.

    I will, of course, post updates of this process.

    I like solid ties and I think Stitches' grenadines look great, but I don't think a solid black one is a good idea for a wedding. Too severe.

    If you don't like any of the classic wedding tie patterns (Glen Plaid, Houndstooth, Shepherd's Check, etc) and want a solid grenadine, I think this one could work nicely with a grey suit and white shirt:

    From here.

    Actually, since I haven't found a wedding tie I really like yet, I should probably get that one. Would pair it with a navy suit, though.

    STEP ASIDE KAPLAN! STICHES IDEA IS BEST IDEA!!!


    jk, that is a great tie. but i think that tie with a gray suit and white shirt would be all washed out.

    Thanks David...my first two grenadines were 4 fold lined and I really like the weight and will order the same this time but in charcoal and navy.

    :laugh:

    I agree it would be better with a navy suit, but I think it could work with a grey suit as well (for a grey'ish on grey'ish look that seemed to work, without necessarily being wedding appropriate, see my avatar).

    I still think solid black is a bad idea. (Only for this specific purpose. I like that black grenadine for a lot of other stuff.)

    Just to check that I wasn't totally out of my mind, I looked around a bit and found this:




    etc...

    Personally, I'm not fond of ties that are true silver, which is why I suggested that particualar one that has both silver and charcoal in it.

    Of course, in the end the OP should get what he feels is right for him.

    Good luck :)

    I definitely prefer the silver over the black, though I agree that it would look better with a navy suit than a grey. For grey, I'd go a very dark navy blue for a solid.

    But, my personal fave is a shepherd's check in black and white. It's what I wore to my wedding, after all :)

    Hmm... Thank you all for giving me a lot to think about. Before Stitch suggested the black fina I was leaning for the traditional silver/charcoal fine silk wedding tie. Hober just doesn't have any patterns that really spoke to me.

    Maybe a silver/charcoal grenadine? I do like the one that was suggested.

    I picked up the ring today. Designed it myself, and a friend made it. She's a professional jeweler in the city. Got the ring at cost! No complaints here!

    lol what do those guys know. they stink.

    but srs, if black is no bueno for a wedding, with a gray suit your shepherds check idea is good, or dark navy grenadine.


    good job on the ring!

    see above, i still think black is great, even if against certain standards, if not the above options are good. i just think gray gray white is a snooze fest.

    What does everyone think about this one? Too blue? I wish there was a solid silver one.

    The suit will be dark grey. Think a shade lighter than charcoal.

    maybe i just have something against these ultra light ties. i think dark gray and navy are great, and would be better than these light shades.

    forgive the narcism, here is one i wore. obviously for a weeding you will be wearing a white shirt, which will be fine, but you can get the idea of dark gray and navy grenadine.

    just my 2 cents.

    Does this pattern come in a tie?
