I think its real too. On the subject of IDing Hermes, I once bought an Hermes H belt on ebay with a guarantee that its authentic, which of course I didn't trust, so I brought it to the
Hermes store in Manhattan and the manager there told me that they never have id cards with their items so its fake. Now take a look on ebay and see how many you
can find without cards.
Look at the front legs on the horse. When I posted 2 hermes ties a couple weeks ago I was told that authentic ties will show 2 front legs. Is there any truth to that?
I wont claim to be an expert on this, I can only talk from what I've seen. I think spoo might be able to clarify this. I have personally seen most tie labels with two front legs on the horse and some with one. I think made in France is found on the heavy silk ties not the type steven is showing. The made in france would be on the back of the skinny blade. Also on the tie itself on the thin blade the horse has one leg on all of mine.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
