We love to see people wear green. Not just during the holidays, but all year round—especially during the fall season. No doubt it's a bold colour. We give it a 50% Versatility Score, so you have to take care while trying to achieve a classic and timeless style. Charging ahead with a daring green tie could effectively overshadow you.

However, putting thought into what you pair with your gorgeous green tie will make others, dare I say, green with envy. The best approach is simplicity for that timeless and classic look. But before we put together some outfits, we need to get the right tie. And for that, we give the green light to grenadine.

Grenadine’s texture makes it the obvious choice

If you're going to wear a green tie, make it a grenadine. Grenadine weave is the best-kept secret in neckwear. Its unique texture adds beautiful visual interest to your necktie that makes people take notice. Learn more and fall in love with the style and texture of grenadine ties.

Let's agree that green in any shade is a bold colour choice. The next step then is to mute it. Do this by contrasting the tie with a pattern, colour or both.

Tone it down and stay neutral

Neutral colours like white, grey, beige and blue can help tone down the colour of the tie. Again, if your goal is classic timelessness then opt for an understated knot—our signature Four-In-Hand will do just fine.

Use your shirt to add patterns

Adding a pattern will help subdue the bold colour more. You do risk creating another problem, so use caution. Opt for a subtle pattern, like thin pinstripe, windowpane, houndstooth, or graph check. Don't forget your understated knot. This is most critical now since you've added a pattern.

Combine a green tie with a brown blazer

Bringing together two earthy tones like green and brown brings warmth in the fall and winter. A green grenadine tie and a brown blazer simply look like they belong together. It’s a look that’s as sophisticated as it is eye-catching.

Trousers to complement a green tie

Green’s a warm tone that pairs well with shades of blue. Wear your green tie with a brown blazer and navy trousers. You can also go the other way and combine a navy blazer with brown trousers. Khaki chinos or brown dress pants will look great with your green tie and blue blazer.

Visual Interest

If you're in the market for a green tie, go beyond just colour. Craftsmanship, material, country of origin, interlining, and the number of folds are all essential elements. Add visual interest to your checklist.

Our Forest Green Grenadine Tie, pictured above is made with a Grenadine weave. It has a fine three-dimensional weave and is a classic mainstay for the tie connoisseur and grabatologist.

Only two of today’s textile mills can produce grenadines, making it very rare to come by. We challenge another green tie to reach the level of refined sophistication of a Green Grenadine tie.

A bold green tie isn’t the easiest to wear. Owning the right pieces and knowing how to put them together is the battle. But it’s one that we believe you can win.
