I've only encountered 2 types of Hermes ties: a thick silk and a traditional twill. To me, its the thick ones that feel rather cheap. I prefer the thicker silk of other brands over Hermes.
Over time they've changed the twill slightly, the vintage Hermes are a touch different than newer ones. Maybe that's what you are experiencing? I've never encountered a modern Hermes any different from what's in a store. Or maybe the fakes have caught up? I'd have to see it in person, but I've yet to encounter a convincing Hermes fake.
