    But seriously, what's the obsession with boxes/bags?

    I don't see anything special about them.

    That's just silly. Get a tie rack or roll them up in a drawer like a normal person.

    Is there any reason why you can't store them in a box which isn't Hermes branded?

    Come on, OP's story is complete bullshit. He was planning on selling the ties or gifting them and wanted the boxes to make it looke like he purchased them new. If he wanted the boxes for storage, he would not need the tie boxes to have the Hermes name on them.

    I find that the best box is a cube of about 4' per side. That way a tie can be rolled up after wearing and stored, preserving its shape. They also cluster nicely in a drawer dedicated to ties. I have found that ties that are stored flat lose their shape and fullness.

    Tom Ford also provides the rectangular boxes, which aren't very practical for storage. But it is a nice presentation piece when purchasing an item.

    Why on earth do you keep the ties in separate boxes? And assuming you do, why do the boxes need to be branded the same as the ties?

    I like a nice box as much as the next man, but it's no place to keep a tie.
