Old White Men In Hermes

Meet our friends from Sal. Oppenheim, Baron von Ullmann and Graf Krokow:

No tie, but a nice PP 5110J:

Even the Social Democrats love Hermes, here on Mr Steinbrück:

Both Mr Steinbrück and Baron Guttenberg are habitual Hermes wearers; only Guttenberg got a bad reaction from the press (which in Germany is largely a Prawda-like liberal-left government mouthpiece), while it was tactfully avoided to mention Steini's ties (him being a typical example of the "Caviar Gauche").

Re: Old White Men In Hermes

Not a big fan of printed ties myself but I have used several whimsical Hermes designs as inspirations for lining designs.

Re: Old White Men In Hermes

They're so geomatrically stable with small uniform motifs, they're not as fully possessed by whimsy as first glanced. You can't compare them to T&A's bowler hatted chap riding on a tiger jumping the Tower of London, can you?

I do like the sharks one, swimming in a sea of pink. I would wear that.

Their designs are more continental than UK, that is for sure.

highly continental. In the UK, heavier ties in darker colours are still preferred. The pics you see above are a good example of continental European execs from the old guard. of course, in IT, modernbanking and many other sectors the younger guys dress differently

Lately on a polka dot kick.
Can be worn straight or playful.

The typical H&H tie from yesteryear. Not fashion, not luxury - rather a no-nonsense approach to menswear. 35GBP - worth every penny, but not more.

I always have a perception that polka dot ties are what surgeons wear. I think this comes from the Doctor At Large and Carry On.... films set in hospitals where the senior doctors and surgeons were always immaculately dressed on their rounds.

LOL, there's a sucker born every day- just bought four. Thanks for the tip.

Hep, "I always have a perception that polka dot ties are what surgeons wear. I think this comes from the Doctor At Large and Carry On.... films set in hospitals where the senior doctors and surgeons were always immaculately dressed on their rounds."

Here in the US not so much, but when I was at the Royal Marsden that was the case. The other big ones were Medical School ties and club ties.
But the Wine red/white dot combo was everywhere.

I thought the irascible James Robertson Justice, or Sir Lancelot Spratt as he was cast, always wore bow ties?

Never saw the show, but there is a tradition of surgeons wearing bowties in France. The reason is to prevent the tie from flopping into the wound when bending over to examine the patient.
Maybe that's why so many Misters (took me a while to realize surgeons are addressed as Mister rather than Dr. in UK) wore vests.

They abandon the inverted snobbery when booking a table at a restaurant.


Back with a vengeance.

It's not vest but rather waistcoat in the UK. I think by law, physicians in the UK are forbidden to wear long ties partly because silk stores pathogens for a very long time which can be transmitted from surface to surface or patient to patient.
