Is the sale going on at the stores too?

Does anyone have experience with the grenadine ties?

I really hate how they don't even list the width or even the fabric of their ties.

Grenadine tie still comes out to about $75, once you factor in shipping.

Check out what Sam Hober grenadines look like, compared to J Press:





Are these J Press grenadines even worth it? I'm still trying to decide.

I have a couple J Press, along with a few from Hober. Hober's are a bigger weave, and are great ties, but J Press ties are still very nice. It is just a smaller, less noticeable weave, so a different look than the Hobers. If you like the small weave, I also highly recommend Winston Tailors, which markets really nice grenadines under the Chipp2 label for just $45:

You have to call them to order, but their ties are great

Press ties are a solid tie with a grenadine texture. Sam Hobers are more loosely woven, so that they are airy. FWIW, Hobers are made with the same fabric that Capelli uses.
