    That is fake. Hermes doesn't use black tags or tags in general nor does it have that sort of lining. Hermes ties also have some sort of a number printed on th silk itself to designate the pattern. Here is an authentic one: http://cgi.ebay.com/HERMES-SILK-MENS...QQcmdZViewItem

    Doesn't look much like an Hermes pattern anyway. Hermes have a keeper with the horse and cart logo embroidered and "100% silk / dry clean only" - it doesn't say Hermes on the keeper. On the small end on the front side of the silk is a square with another horse and cart and it says "Hermes / Paris (c)". On the back side of the small end is a rectangle that says "Made in France / ### (a serial number) / 100% Soie". The lining is plain silk and of a matching or complementary color.

    Oh, and that tie is too wide for Hermes as well. The real ones I've seen have all been ~3-1/4" wide or so. They are narrower than most ties you see today.

    So what do I do now? I contacted the seller asking him to refund the money and not send the tie.

    Should probably add surfer168 to the bad eBayer list.

    You could also report him to Ebay on it, add it to our thread, add it over on honestforums.com and that other Ebay report forum - I can't remember the name.
