    What's the quality like on Chipp ties? How would you compare them to the quality of Tie Bar? Thanks.

    I don't have anything from the TieBar, but for Chipp I have 2 grenadines, and they're my favorite ties. Waiting on the black to come back like @hornsup84.

    Aw dang, the email code says off regular priced styles, and doesn't work on the grenadines since they are already discounted.

    Just got Chipp grenadines for my wedding (navy colored). Good Lord, these weigh more than two TieBar ties put together. They're so well-made I'd consider tying them together into a fancy lasso (I've been playing a lot of Red Dead Redemption, sorry).

    Wine and Purple are next on my hitlist.

    That's a bummer. They ran an extra 30% off everything last week. They'll do it again soon. They always do.

    I have the Navy and Wine. Great ties. Next are Black and Brown.

    Hopefully. I'll just wait until either the LE sale or Chipp to restock. Not in a hurry, just would like to have a black grenadine over my black knit.

    Excellent info. Thanks gents! Been looking for better quality ties than what TTB is offering but wasn't sure where to look. Cheers.

    Have you tried out Kent Wang's grenadines by any chance? Someone suggested them to me but I went with Chipp because it's slightly cheaper and a finer weave. Now that I'm looking at some more grenadines though, a couple appear to be fine-weave (e.g. purple) while others appear to be loose weave (e.g. this burgundy or this burgundy/black).

    I'd love to branch out to compare the two, but for $75 that's a pricey experiment lol.

    Highly recommend Berg & Berg as well. They have sales occasionally and that's when I usually stock up.

    I have not, mainly because they're pretty pricey. At that price point I'd take a look at Sam Hober as well.
