Depending on the brand you may have to talk to the manufacturer
The end your showing could be 1/4” or 3/8” male ips
You need to show both ends
I know grohe and possibly Chicago are not common threads

I agree, call the manufacturer for a new part.

Otherwise, you might be running around in circles trying to find it off the shelf.

There might be a brand sticker under the sink, or a brand printed onto the faucet itself.

If you don’t know faucet brand, probably time to just buy a new faucet.

You also never stated what is the problem with the part you have now.

Thanks guys. I haven’t found a brand anywhere on any of the parts. Leaning towards buying new (but have to buy 2 as its a 2-sink bath). The issue was that the supply line was leaking water all over a fair amount. Couldn’t find the part at HD or Lowe’s here in town. Thought of hitting up local plumbing supply store tomorrow when they open. Just wasnt sure what you’d call that kind of end/connector as I wasnt as well versed in the types of connectors out there. Sounds like its more of an uncommon connector. Thanks for your insights!

Post a picture or two of the faucet, someone here might recognize it.

Look under the other faucet for a label.

It’s not really a part that you would find in a store, because it is part of the faucet itself.

However, a plumbing supply shop might be able to find something to replace it, or they might recognize it, or might be able to make something up out of parts on hand.

You can also take it to Home Depot, and they have display fittings that you can try to attach to either end, to at least identify what exact threads you have now.

Then you can search on Google for a flex hose with those two fittings on it.

It looks like there are little o rings on that end.

Is that the end that was leaking?

You can buy new o rings, but they have to be same exact size.
Correct diameter AND thickness of ring.

And you need to lightly grease them up with plumbers’ silicone grease.
You can tease off the old ones with a tiny flat screwdriver or other small dull tool.

You can buy little bags of assorted rings, or a bigger box with a big selection.
Some hardware stores have drawers full of different sizes, sometimes behind the service counter.
Or the supply house can match them up.

Cheaper than buying two faucets.

thanks guys. Here’s a couple more pics. It seemed like it was gushing from the silver braided part itself, but there is a chance it could have also been from the connector I showed initially. I’ll try to pickup some extra o-rings when I go to plumbing supply tomorrow as well. I also checked the other sink and didn't see any stickers there either.

thanks again!

What does the stick on the sink say
Did the handle and escutcheon thread off
It’s possible it’s a Kohler the last pic of the brass faucet body looks familiar
Sometimes at the base of the spout there could be a brand name

you will never find a replacement, guaranteed.
you might try buying matching o-rings if that is your leak source.

That little nugget is proprietary. The "C" sticker means that is the could side (right). It helps to identify them as the handles are levers and open/close a certain way.
