    I am a fan of the solid grenadine tie. Dark navy, red, and dark grey are the three that I own..

    Sam Hober has some great ones.

    Chipp2/Winston Tailors has a number of colors at a pretty good price ($42 plus shipping) but you need to call them and they don't have any pictures posted. I emailed them awhile back, colors are: Navy, Black, Forest Green, Burgundy, Yellow, Grey, Aubergine, Brown/rust.

    Charles Tyrwhitt has royal blue and silver available right now for around $70, but I don't know anything about their quality.

    Hober and Charles Tyrwhitt have a different type of grenadine than Winston, which has a finer weave. I have never seen the larger weave grenadine that Kent Wang has at a better price. I have Hober's midnight grenadine and there is no tie more versatile than that.

    I have a black grenadine from Hober which is great.

    Drakes do them as well.
