I have bought grenadine ties from other companies, but none that match the quality from Elizabetta. The garza fina ties are truly a finer weave than what I've seen from others and the garza grossa ties have the right amount of texture. If you want a true grenadine tie then you want one that comes from the Lake Como region of Italy as these do. If it's made in Vietnam, or any other area for that matter, it's not a true grenadine tie. I've bought several different colors from Elizabetta. Even so, you'll still be more dressed up and look better than 95% of the guys out there! - Donny L.
