At Last, Grenadine
It's no secret that I'm a cheap dresser who thinks things into the ground before buying. Nor am I free of the intonations of the menswear bloggers, who tend to all suggest a navy grenadine tie. Drakes makes them for $100+, but I get vertigo just thinking about spending that much on a tie, no matter how useful.
Enter The Knottery's navy grenadine tie. (The discoloration in the middle of the shot is an artifact of my camera.) TK has been around for a while, but their ties are so popular that they tend to sell out really fast. This time, I got on the waitlist and so was ensured one. As promised, it has a lot of texture-based personality. Contrasting textures can make a relatively monochromatic outfit much more interesting, and for this, it fits the bill perfectly.
Outfit photos to come.
