My sincerest apologies. It was NOT my intent to insult and I hope that it was not taken that way. kind of reminds me of a time when into my children's boutique walked a woman and commented...WHO BUYS ALL THESE UGLY THINGS??? and my mother who was the sole buyer said ME.
FIH, I didn't take it as an insult, and I'm sorry that my tone made it sound that way to you. All I was trying to say is that different kinds of ties appeal to different people. As far as the lining used by Hermes goes, I managed to worm my finger up past the tipping, and it feels like wool to me. A thin wool, to be sure, allowing the tie to tie a small knot, but that's what I'm looking for sometimes.

As far as value goes, I recieved a gift certificate from Tiecrafters from a friend for my birthday.  It was for $120, which covers 2 ties.  I got to chose the fabric, the width, the type of lining and the thickness.  Id say it was a great deal, since I ended up chosing 2 silk grenadine ties that I never seen anywhere else.  And for $120 total, seems like a great deal.  I havent recieved the ties yet, but they will be ready anyday.
Phil -- How does Tiecrafters work?  I went to their website, and it says they do custom ties, but there's little detail (e.g. no pricing info).  Also, it says you can pick from their selection of fabrics, but there's no link to do so.  Do you have to go there in person?
