In case you're still looking for a grenadine tie: I can also recommend Elizabetta (https://elizabetta.net), who sells excellent lined grenadine ties (including multiple shades of navy blue ones). They are lined with wool and tipped with silk. Shibumi's are also nice but are unlined. I guess it's a question of taste what you prefer :).
I ordered two from Kent Wang and am thoroughly satisfied.
I saw the brand you post of but always a bit skeptical of Amazon brands.

Ok, good to know you're satisfied! Just so you know though, they may also sell on Amazon like many small brands, I'm not sure. But it is definitely a family-run brand with their own website which I have ordered from.

Are you a member of the family? Curious because you just joined minutes ago and your only post is promoting this brand.

What about Charles Tyrwhitt? They seem to be offering a lower price if you buy two or more.

Good question. I only know them as a shirt brand, which I think is what they're most known for. Their grenadines look nice in the photos, but are suspiciously inexpensive so not sure. The discount if you buy two or more is cool, for sure.

Those Elizabetta ties look quite nice, but this is exactly the kind of situation I was talking about in my earlier post. I just can't come up with a good reason to pay $130 to try one of these, when I can get a custom-made grenadine from Hober, made to whatever measurements I specify, for $95 (maybe $5-10 more if you want to pick different lining and thread). I don't know what I'd be chasing after.

Kent Wang does have good stuff and many members here say good things.
I ordered a navy and burgundy grenadine from Kent Wang and they were very nice.
$75 each plus $5 delivery. Had them within 3 days.
Sam Hober definitely has more to choose from. But as few times as I wear a tie it didn't seem
like paying $90 (without any extra's) + $22 shipping was proper.

Yes, Wang and Chipp are good options for quicker, somewhat less expensive grenadines than Hober. I have a few Chipp grenadines and am happy with the quality for $60. But, of course, you do not get any customization options.

Does anyone have experience with Brunati Como? They have 30% off over Easter so tempting to try at the moment.

Brunati Como's ties are very nice and good quality. Again, it's a question of taste whether you prefer tipped or untipped. Brunati's are all untipped as far as I know.

The Elizabetta grenadine grossa ties I've handled had a substantial, even luxuriant, feel; knotted nicely; and were easily accessible in North America. No complaints here about the product. However, it appears that full retail price has climbed from the $80 range during the past 5-6 years. Since I don't wear ties regularly, I haven't been following this "market" keenly, but perhaps the brand's pricing has outpaced the alternatives.

I just made a purchase from: https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/shop/accessories/ties I decided to give them a try. If you purchase three or more ties you can get a discount. One of the ties I got was a navy grenadine tie. Waiting for my order to arrive : )
Have you received your order and, if so, what do you think about your ties? GG was one of my entry points into CM and, while his products are more expensive than other products people seem to agree are high quality, I wouldn't mind sending some business his way since he doesn't overly advertise his Patreon or anything.
