Real Hermes? - Page 3

post #31 of 38
How much was this tie? Seems a heck of a lot of effort for $24.99.

Looks like he won the auction for $79.99.

I already sent this concern Spoo's way, but I wonder if there are any Hermes afficinados on this forum the way he is with Versace.  I've contacted the  seller and am waiting to hear back.  I can't find any definitive proof that this was ever a Hermes item in stores as their online stock is limited to current season product.  Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not an expert or aficionado by any means but things like this on eBay always strike me as suspect... I would assume fake until proven otherwise. The buckle seems "off" to me tho'.

Im not sure where you live. But if you go to their NYC store on Madison and show them a link to this auction on your phone, they can tell you if its from a past season. I once inquired about a tie from an ebay aucfion, and showed them a link to the auction, they said it was from 4 or 5 years ago and didnt carry it anymore, but they verified it was authentic it was some "midnight in Paris" one. The sales people there especially the ones who have worked there for years would be able to recognize it.

As we have PM'd, its most certainly fake. Just noting it publicly here.

Just bad timing, mate.

I sold almost all my personal collection of Hermes print and woven ties in the last few months; currently, the only ones I use are an orange print with brown lines and an orange silk knit, which coincidentally, happens to be 'Made in Germany', not France, and possibly by the same mob that does Drakes knit ties (same crunchy feel). Goes to substantiate what Spoo said: Experience and not the interwebz.

Will check if I have any left... seem to remember an orange with blue Hs woven, and maybe a red print.

P.S. These would ALL have been from the Hermes boutique in Sydney, so I'll be checking on the veracity of the so-called spot-the-fakes guides tonight. Will update everyone tomorrow...

I don't know this seller personally, but I'm a resident of Bangkok. I'm sorry that this happens to you as I would not wish this happen to anyone, so please let me know if I can be any of your assistant.

I believe this case would be solved best if you contact eBay directly, but if all things fail (Hopefully, it does not), please let me know what you would like me to do.
