    I never undrestood the hype for Hermes ties having those desings.

    If was another brand, some of you will accuse of D-bag.

    i don't think hermes animal cartoon ties will ever be laughably outdated, but they are now firmly a cliche, and the province of the conservative but uninspired dresser who thinks that it conveys classic refinement. (it did... 15-20+ years ago.)

    hermes knows this, which is why they have been increasingly diversifying their tie offerings away from the printed-silk animal farm.

    i wouldn't be caught dead wearing one.

    (i will grant, though, that elderly parisian gentlemen have the right to still wear hermes cartoon ties and still embody classic refinement!)

    How about matching hippo pocket square (matching pattern, not color [​IMG] )

    I like the ties, but I definitely prefer the animal prints on a pocket square.

    Hippos cause more human deaths than any other animal in Africa. I can't stand the cartoon ties but I agree, they will be around as long as there are ties.
    More than humans or mosquitoes? [​IMG] I like the pocket square a lot. I have never liked the ties before but have seen a few recently that I like but would not know how to wear.

    I disagree.

    There are great animal patterns from other brands that are very wearable. For example, Brooks Brothers, Andrew's Ties, and Ferragamo. One of my favorites is a Cardin (I know) mustard colored with snails... superb quality, the hi end Cardin made in France.

    Maybe, maybe not. Many would view the whimsical-ness as a sign of confidence to wear it.

    although plenty of these are dumb, the best ones look amazing and are pretty much the best ties for my money. LOVE that hippo tie in the first post.

    +1. I don't see many wearing them these days.

    what? If anything I see these more often than ever, it seems like every other big tie maker has started ripping off this style. If you walk into a place like Bloomingdale's or Barney's there are tons of them.
