Haha I just mean the second after you posted about how you can tell by just touching it Fueco posted about how the one he thought was the nicest turned out to be fake. That's what I meant by perfect timing

Seen hermes with and without that thread loop... familiarize yourself with the dovetail construction, twill angle and I agree w frenchy the hand is a giveaway. Also the silk should be fairly matte.

Also the tipping should match the base color iirc. Check the alphanumeric against comps. If you've found legit before they get easier to spot.

The Hermes tie has a single thread running down the back of the tie holding the seam together. This thread forms a loop at both ends of the tie and can be pulled to tighten the seam. Since the ties are made by hand the length of the thread varies depending on who makes it.
Sometimes the loop is pulled up inside the large blade and cannot be seen, but you can always look inside the seam on the back and confirm that there is a single thread holding it together.
