    Glad there's at least one other out there!
    @hornsup84

    It looks incredible in your pictures; if that's not doing it justice I can't imagine it irl. As for alternate ties, it might be a bit too monochrome for your taste, but I think it would look excellent with a grenadine like the one below and a standard light blue dress shirt.

    Good call on a true green, agree the grenadines being a great every day look, I've been wearing my wine color Chipp a ton with nearly every suit I have. Leaning toward less is more with the solid grenadine ties being a calling card for me at work.

    Thanks man. That does seem like a lot of blue to me, but I could see doing a white shirt and a lighter blue tie, whether a royal blue like you show or maybe a slate or powder blue even. Good ideas!

May grab a chocolate brown or orange/rust color grenadine tie to change things up.

    Man, great look on that suit. Is that the same NY tailor where you got the last one?

    Just an fyi, Land's End has a chocolate grenadine on sale right now. Retails at $100, but with the sale price and 30% off I just picked it up for <$40. It says 3" but it's actually about a cm short or so, so a little on the narrow side. Still a great tie for the price though!

    Ouch..At that price, even on sale, I'd rather just go Chipp Neckwear. At <$40, it's a no brainer, but for some reason, $56 for a Lands End tie seems a bit pricey.

    I totally agree. I was just implying with one of LE's 30-40% off on top. I paid $38.67 for it. I got a forest green repp for about $10 also to put me over the free shipping yhreshold. They aren't the greatest ties, but the grenadine is very nice for the price.

    Ah, my bad. Didn't read it correctly. Thought you meant it was $56 after the 30%, not 30% off on top. Just checked their website again, and they have 40% off with email sign up. Might cop both brown and black if it works. Thanks for the heads up!

    Appreciate the heads up, but I prefer a little more width as I'm a bit wider of a frame, so Chipps work about perfect for me! I only wish they'd get a restock of their black grenadine at some point...
