    Alessa,

    A good friend of mine claims that she get a Hermes birkin bag at MSRP with no early charge. I trust this friend very much as she has worked in this fashion/bag industry for the past 12 years. she has extensive knowledge of Hermes, Chanel, LV and a few others. She is not currently employed at the Hermes in NYC but has 2 good friends who have been for quite a while.

    I personally have absolutely NO experience in buying Hermes or Hermes products in general but simply understand that they are quite the "Limited Edition's: simply because of the large price tag associated....

    Do you have any other reccomendations of Hermes Bags that I should look into for friends/Family? Birkin? Kelly? 35? 42?

    Thanks,

    Spensive

The truth is that they cannot. A friend of mine recently opened my eyes to the replica industry and how illogic it would be to have a large inventory of Hermes handbags. Take a good look at the inventory of some Ebay powersellers. Some of them would have to invest more than a million dollars to acquire their bags. They would have to travel constantly to acquire their inventory because no local Hermes shop could supply them.
    Actually some of the more prominent Hermes resellers on Ebay have people helping them obtain Birkins from all over the place. These resellers would pay a "finder's fee" to these people and then they add their own fees on top of it so that's why the Birkins you see on Ebay are all being offered with a premium. Also, occasionally some Hermes VIPs will consign their bags to these resellers if they don't want the Birkin anymore for whatever reasons and that's why these resellers have a handful of inventory. Hope this explains.

    BTW, there are a few reputable resellers for Hermes on Ebay. If I may say so, it's safe to buy from them if you are willing to pay the premium. The most important thing is to do the research and check their feedbacks before venturing down this avenue

    hello all i have a quick question:

    i received an orange Togo 35cm birkin with gold hardware as a gift. i have every reason to believe it is authentic, but poking around on various websites i realized one small difference on MY bag and the rest of the bags.

    on MY bag the edge of the handles and the edge of the top of the bag, are orange like the rest of the bag. in the pictures i saw on the web it looked like the edges of the leather are black.
    now does this indicate an authenticity discrepency in my bag???

    are some bags of brighter colors sometimes the same color on the edges? or are all birkins black on the edges of the handles and the top of the bag?

    I WILL TRULY APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION IN THIS AREA. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

    No that does not mean your bag is fake. The color is sometimes the same as the bag. Take detailed pictures of your bag. There is another bag site. I don't know if I'm allowed to mention it. Use google try is my birkin authentic. They will authenticate using pictures. It's free. The site is called " the _____ forum"

    They have very knowledgeable Hermes ladies.
