    Just ordered 2 of them, $49.99 a piece. Pretty good deal, down from $92.50 I think. I have the black/cream one already, and I love it. Its awfully hard to find striped grenadine ties.

    I am curious to know the country of origin. They pulled the work out of the NYC tie factory last year, that made these for years.

    The fabric is most likely still made in England, but I will bet that they were made in China, unless they are old inventory.

    J. Press has its grenadine ties on sale for about the same price. I believe they're made in England or USA.

    I have several J Press grenadines, about half made in England, the other half made in the USA

    I got one of the Ben Silver grenadines for Christmas, my first grenadine. They still had a couple of colors (solids) in their outlet section last time I looked. The one I have is USA made of English silk. It's a great tie.

    Those Ben Silver outlet grenadines were a great deal - $25.50 if I remember correctly. I got all 3 they were offering. Im hoping they offer some newer colors for the spring.
