While at Kamakura last week something caught my eye on their meticulously folded tie table. It was an unusual texture, and when I investigated, sure enough it turned out to be in a grenadine weave, but made of only 20 percent silk, the rest being wool.
I quickly messaged Mr. G. Bruce Boyer, who agreed that wool grenadine ties are indeed rare, with perhaps Drake’s being the only other current maker.
Pictured are an assotment of Kamakura’s, and there are more, including a solid navy. Check their website and if you don’t see what you’re after, give them a call at 212.308.5266. — CC
