I knew a guy who was a tech marketing exec. who actually worked at several startups in the very late 80s early 90s in the Bay Area who regularly wore Hermes ties.

Needless to say,the one last that fit me (Amerikaner) has been discontinued.A special makeup for me in that last would be 800 Euros. I didn't bite.But I may since the Euro has dropped significantly since then.
