I acquired these ties from a very reputable source (a respectable member of one of my alumni associations) for a reasonable amount for re-sale on B&S, so they're NOT a suspect eBay purchase at all! However, while I'm familiar with older models of Hermes ties I'm not that familiar with newer versions, and so thought I'd better take a "realty check" on these prior to listing them. The quality of the silk is excellent, as is the quality of the lining and the construction, and the labels are all woven in, not printed. The weave flows in the right direction and right angle, also. But, I'll let those more familiar with Hermes judge as best they can with pictures! Thnaks!
