Does anyone know if Hermes makes ties of different widths, or are they all uniformly the same ? I somewhat recall some Hermes ties from previous years (mid 90s or earlier) were of a lesser width.. Can anyone offer some info?
Anyone know if Paul & Shark still make ties? I've hardly seen any lately, but have not gone to any NYC places that might have bigger Paul & Shark selections. Are there any websites out there that may have some?
John, I appreciate all the info you provided, thanks! I do own a few Versace ties, and you are correct, the construction is just average, nothing even remotely close to a 7-fold type..

If you need any more pics, just let me know.. It's much nicer in person than most pics could display. Essentially it's mint, yet it's a size big on me, so hopefully someone can appreciate this fine work of art
Spoke to a friend of mine today who knows the Burberry line, and he mentioned that the shirt is most likely from the Burberry Prorsum collection.. Wish I could show more detail in the pics, it's of very fine quality!
