The Grenadine tie - the purveyor of style, championed by iconic men across cinematic history like Sean Connery; perfectly illustrated in James Bond.
Our silk Grenadine ties are famous for their timeless style and superior craftsmanship and can be universally used to guarantee smart office looks as well as stylish outfits for those weekend special occasions.
But how do you achieve such meticulous quality and what exactly goes into the superior craftsmanship?
Many gents opt for a plain silk tie when accessorising a suit for business, possibly add a print for those weekend occasions or choose something bespoke for those personal events. These ties surely portray class but a step beyond this is the Grenadine tie. The pinnacle of silk ties with a true reflection of a gentleman’s luxury and refined style that is universally worn for almost any occasion.
If you want to stand out from the crowd and are looking for ties beyond the common repertoire in the market, here’s everything you need to know about the luxury Grenadine tie.
Firstly, Grenadine ties are not about the material, rather the art of the weave which is handwoven to give the intrinsically strong finish. Grenadine ties are woven exclusively in the Lake Como area of Northern Italy with the weave patterns reflected in their Italian names: Garza Grossa and Garza Fina. These ties involve two warp yarns which are twisted around the weft to provide a strong, sheer fabric.
So, what’s the difference between Garza Grossa and Garza Fina?
Garza Grossa has a larger and prominent weave whilst Garza Fina has a smaller patterned weave which holds together extremely well but provides less of a textured look. Our range is specialised specifically to the Garza Grossa Grenadine tie: a looser more textured weave that leaves a flawless drop through the knot.
Grenadine ties are available in different patterns, but the most stylish and timeless designs are reflected through the texture within a solid colour. We have a range of solid colour Grenadine ties to suit all preferences.
How to wear a Grenadine tie
The beauty and popularity of a Grenadine comes with its versatility. The refined silk and weave finish make this an ideal accessory for a gent. For the more formal occasions showcase the elegance of a Grenadine tie with a tuxedo, two piece or three-piece suit. But don’t forget these ties also look flawless in less formal settings such as work meetings, dinner dates or a friend/family occasion. Opt for a blazer with smart jeans or trouser to give that dandy look.
