This is incredible. Please describe the buyer's remorse that you later felt. Maybe it was the when you spilled wine on the tie or maybe it was 6 months later when you realized that it didn't mean shit, or maybe you felt it as soon as you got to the parking lot.

I would hit up Nieman Marcus last call when I was in the area. They would have great deals on ties, like once I got a solid color tom ford grenadine 7 fold for $30. have gotten lots of brioni, zegna, and isiah ties there over the years. Usually I just sifted through the clearance rack and grabbed the expensive ties with good patterns, 2-5 per visit. They would be $30-$50 for ties retailing $180+. Like once (after getting a raise to $200k+), I bought a zegna tie off the non-clearance racks for $70-$80 because I really liked it. It still might be my favorite tie.

I wouldn't wear most Hermes ties even if given to me for free.

It's good to buy a handful from the same sales associate every so often, so that you get access to the good stuff that comes in. You can just tell them to pick any because they all look good. I recommend establishing a personal relationship with someone at the Honolulu location. Not only is it Hermes' global flagship but their sales tax is only 4%.
