    And I am amazed about the level of care for Rudals!

    BTW thanks for the suggestions in the first post. Conrad Wu's ties are absolutely stunning.

    This thread is becoming an internal monoloque for Rudals' daily events

    It's supposed to be good luck.

    Also, the bird is high-fiving his friends right now.

    They're helping out a poor soul who used to shell out cash at Neiman Marcus buying up ties that didn't match with anything. All jokes aside, very good help here from very good people.

    Focusing back on our conversation, we just would like to know if anyone has first hands on experience with both Sam Hober grenadine ties and Cappelli grenadine ties. I am looking to order a few.

    No you're not. You need to wear your current ties a bit, then investigate the suit situation. You don't need to go and buy a handful of grenadines yet. Only the other day you were worried about buying one tie because of the cost. You don't need to buy five solids now just because they are individually cheaper than the one you just bought. Settle. Wear all your new ones for a couple of weeks. Re-assess.

    Wise words. I was being frugal and fought my temptations but I caved in and order 3(?) new ties. I just did my tax return and because of the $$$$$$$$ that I paid on mortgage interest in 2013, I am getting back about $4k in refunds...which should go to the engagement ring fund...but I was hoping to skim a little off the top and get something for myself before the Mrs arrives and I have to hand over my finances...even though I am a CPA. $hit, that's too much info about me. I feel exposed. I feel like this thread is like my journal. I feel like I should shut up now and stop here.
