In preparation for the hard-to-shop-for dads of the world, Hermès has launched its very own tie-of-the-month club available exclusively at the Madison Avenue men's boutique. According to The Cut, potential subscribers need only fill out a simple questionnaire detailing their preferred styles and designs and what kind of shirts they normally wear, and the service does the rest.
Hermès' silk ties normally retail around $180 (and those lucky enough to make it into the brand's sample sales can get them for about half-price). The exact price of this subscription service is still unknown, so it's not clear if signing up could be a money-saver. However, those who are subscribed are welcome to swap and exchange their customized tie if they're not satisfied with what they got, or go ahead and stop the service at any time.
For more details — or to get a subscription of your own —head to the boutique on 690 Madison Avenue.
