    Do you mean grenadine? (The loose woven silk, looks a lot like knit)

    Never heard of a gabardine tie. Not that it couldn't exist...

    Are you perhaps talking about ties made out of wool suiting? I happen to find them pretty handsome for some reason.

    Try Paul Stuart or J Press in NYC. I would suspect that Press would be a bit cheaper with likely comparable quality. If you can wait a bit their sale will start in a few weeks. I have a couple of PS's grenadines and they're quite nice. Ben Silver also ought to have some.

    www.bestofbritishshirts.com has some by Oscar Udeshi grenadine ties that look interesting, though I don't own any. I've bought from the Ben Silver and J Press websites. You might also check www.fourinhand.com (I haven't visited the site recently, so I don't know if Jonathan currently has grenadines or not).
