    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Would a black grenadine be more appropriate with a navy suit, a charcoal suit, or a grey suit?

    Yes.

    (Which is to say, all of the above. Oh, and charcoal is gray.)

    I called and he shipped me sample swatches of the grenadine. I have not seen the tie or pictures of it, but he is almost half the cost of everyone else. I can mail the samples to anyone interested, just PM me your address.

    I bought a navy grenadine from Chipp2. Excellent service, fast ship, great product. I have swatches if you want them, just send me a PM.

    Manton, thank you. Wearing black grenadine from Mountain & Sackett with dark grey 2B SB suit (side vents) and sky blue end-on-end shirt today. Love it.

    T. Lewin has something they call Panama in black that looks like grenadine to me.

    The panama tie is just a basket weave. While it has texture, it really can't be compared to a grenadine.
