Japan Shopping: Hermès Cravate Quatre Temps

Remember my last post on Duty Free at the Vancouver Airport? I guess this is technically an item that wasn’t bought in Japan. But hey, it was a stopover on our way to Japan so I’ll consider it.

So what is it?

Tie Manifesto

Hermès Tie Manifesto


The courage to shoot from the tie.

We actually went in the store in search of one thing: the scarf-tie. However, it continues to remain an elusive item that I couldn’t get my orange hands on. For some reason all the stores I’ve called or visited either didn’t have them or were sold out. Since we had some time to kill until boarding, we just took our time perusing the store. We didn’t think we were going to find something we like until we saw this handsome item.


Here's a hint.

Ta-da! I don’t know what this tie is called but it’s certainly an interesting one. It’s four-sided and each side has a different colour — orange, red, maroon and dark brown.


100% silk.


Made in Italy.

Here are the four ways this tie can be worn.


orange over maroon


maroon over orange


red over dark brown


dark brown over red

I’m really happy to have found this tie! And the H logo adds a nice detail.

    I know eh. I didn’t even know about this tie as it wasn’t in any of their tie catalogs. I still haven’t worn it as I got pretty lazy with ironing my shirts. Maybe one of these days!
