Is it worth it: Hèrmes ties, guide part 5

Is a Hermès tie worth the price? Number 10:

If you look at their woven ties, they are usually small jacquard patterns, some geometrical patterns, the occasional stripe, but you do not find elaborate stripes there, you do not find repp ties, you do not find grenadine ties or mohair ties, wool ties, they sometimes have cashmere ties, but again, it is very limited. On the other hand, if you want to experiment more with your tie silks and maybe have a shantung fabric or a grenadine wool silk mohair blend, Hermès is not the brand for you.

Should you buy a Hermès tie? Number 1:

If you are someone who really likes printed whimsical motifs, these little animal prints, then Hermès is definitely the way to go. Also, if you are looking for more unusual colors such as fuchsia ties or chartreuse green, maybe some orange tones, Hermès will likely have a shade that you can get. Also, if you are a Wall Street banker or if you work in finance and you want to fit in with your company culture, an Hermès tie is certainly the way to do that. That being said, personally, I am not a big fan of whimsical motifs on ties and I prefer different textures so Hermes ties are not the ideal tie for me. I have a bunch of them including vintage ones and new ones but frankly, I do not wear them a whole lot anymore. The ones I wear the most are probably the woven ties, they are somewhat simple and do not look like a typical Hermès tie. With many other luxury products, you pay a lot for the name but you get average to mediocre quality. On the other hand, with an Hermès tie, you certainly pay for the name but you also get a quality product.
