Silk grenadines are, with knits, my favorite neckties. I like the way the weave adds surface interest to the vee of jacket, shirt and necktie, and over the years I have accumulated nearly a dozen solids in colors ranging from silver to mid-blue.
I should have known better, but just when I thought I had acquired all the grenadine a man could desire, I found that grenadines do not have to be solids. There are two striped versions in my wardrobe now, and I am sporting one of them today.
This is of course a pre-opening tease for the ASW online store where the striped grenadine in the photo (55" long and 3 1/2" wide) will be offered for $130 a necktie.
