    [​IMG] I've seen holiday roasts that were tied up nicer. Please don't buy this coat unless you intend on taking yourself hostage or are into heavy bondage. Even the mannequin isn't happy in it.

    Haha, excellent. I did not have the heart to tell him that coat is hideous beyond belief - I would rather wear a straight jacket.

    Oh boy, that is one fugly coat.

    I know young people tend to wear some rather oddball stuff here in China. But anyone wearing this thing, is just asking to be arrested by the fashion police.

    i picked up this hermes tie recently, wondering if it is real or fake.
    one of the ways to tell is if it has the loop stitching thing... also, (now here comes my problem) the color at widest part of the tie on the underside should be the same as the base color...

    i found the same tie on sale on ebay and its color seems to be the right one,,.. any idea as to what is going on or did i just get a fake one and end of story???

    the only difference between my tie and the ebay tie is this color... the loop on my tie clearly can be seen

    this is the link to the ebay listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/HERMES-BLUE-RED-...2#ht_853wt_997

    Its unusual that your tie has a light lining, and that both ties do not have the "Made in" and "France" on either side of the carriage.

    Your's is likely to be fake.

    why do you say so??

    it has 2 things that say it is real... the loop and the silk runs from 11 - 5
    just because the lining is a bit off that writes off the tie??
