I think you'll find I know plenty about Hermes, as I am a fan of their more off beat items, I own their Plume Depeche in Box in Cafe and a Haut A Courroies (spelling) 40cm in Navy Fjord leather. I also am an admirer of their scarves and cashmere items as they are in a league of their own. I know Hermes has toddlers clothing, but it isn't normal toddlers stuff, i've seen some of it, and it's very simplistic, stylized and sophisticated, very akin to the menswear. These attributes are what people usually associate with old, and that was my point
I've also worn and own a few pieces of the menswear, a plain black button up cardigan and a navy cashmere silk lined double breasted peacoat. They don't make me look old, neither do they come off as 'old' to me, but i've had people put forward their opinions otherwise (these by people that don't know what Hermes is)
