How long till Hermes cartoon/icon ties are laughably outdated? (like acid wash jeans)

post #1 of 161

I am just wondering how long this gimmick/fad "toddler fashion" has been going on. (Little wheelbarrows, elephants, etc) Is this fashion already outdated? If not, how long do you give it before people look downright silly wearing this stuff?

Feel free to send all your laughable Hermes ties to me.

Are you going to ask when Brooks brothers button down shirts are going to be outdated next?

I've always thought that the little animal print ones are irredeemably naff. The other patterns not so much.

The only print ties worth their salt have a cat theme!

The fact that you don't like them doesn't instantly make them a temporary fad. Hell, they've been doing prints in silk for scarves and such for the better part of the last century. Hell, my uncle has been using them for the last twenty or thirty years. I'd reckon they'll still be relevant long after you and me are dust.

I don't personally care for them, but they've been going strong for decades now. Don't see them dropping off all of a sudden. Almost like Chanel No. 5, or the Birkin / Kelly.

They will all crumble away into obscurity until only one remains: The Sheep Sex/Screw Ewe mystery tie.

I believe that all neckties should give expression only to the most weighty and serious concerns faced by mankind. There's just no place for whimsical designs in this vale of tears that we call earthly life. In the mid-1980s, right after the Chernobyl disaster, I bespoke a tie with a repeating pattern of deformed children. In doing so I helped to educate my peers about the importance of nuclear safety. Nobody would laugh at a tie like that, even 25 years later.

I am now thinking about bespeaking a tie that would feature oil-soaked birds.

It's funny you should ask, I just received my invite to the Style Forum super secret special sub forum for sartorial futures (SFSSSSFFSF) and we are voting on this next Tuesday. Mine is a only minority vote but I will still be entertaining lobbyists this week if you have a vested interest in the matter.

NEVER. NEver. NEVER as long as men have a sense of humor.
