Yes, it's a Manbag.
Dosen't sound to nice to me, someone had a dove grey, graphite and something else ostrich birkin, and that was yum :)
I wouldn't get it simply because of wearability-issues, I mean, how likely is that to go with an outfit (i'm a guy, and I doubt you wear bright reds often, and I think 3 shades are just a bit too overwhelming)
But, go have a look at it, if it makes you feel all happy for no reason, go for it :)

Horange!
Rouge H is a nice dark burgundy, so if the majority of the bag is in Rouge H, you're probably fine. I have a feeling the tangerine will the the straps, and rouge vif the flap, maybe? I can't say I like it the combination, though. I was offered a bolide in rouge vif ostrich, and I thought that was a bit too fire-engine red for my taste.

Like Roxane says, it really depends on the configuration of the bag; it might come off as SUPER BRIGHT or actually quite subtle, depending on which colors are dominant. The one thing to remember is that on ostrich all the colors will be a touch more muted, so tangerine might end up looking slightly more like potiron, rouge h will be a dusty burgundy, and rouge vif will be less brilliant than in regular leathers.
I say it's worth taking a peek at, and I would be really quite interested in seeing a photo of this bag, if you do in fact acquire it.

OH Angel!!!!

will you be able to see pictures? Or can you get him to tell you exactly which parts are which colors?

What worries me is that you dont feel like you can say no!! You can always say no!! Just say, "thank you for your kind offer, but I am going to enjoy the bags I have for now. Lets talk again in January!!"

Unless you really want this bag....then of course, you must say yes...

I feel kind of cautious hearing tangerine and rouge vif because to me they are quite bright. Rouge H is more muted and a bit on the darker burgundy side. You definitely need to see a picture of the bag before you make the decision. Depending which parts are which color can make or break the deal. Would love to see the photo if you get it.

Look at the 'My Paris Trip" thread by ilovemylife #2 picture of a tri color Ostrich Birkin looks like it might your three colors.

i have a 30cm tricolor ostrich birkin.....rouge vif, vert anis, orange. and yes, it is quite cheerful and bright! LOL rouge H is definitely a deeper red but is it on the straps or on the panels of the bag? that can make a huge difference bright-wise.

I will go to my grave and never understand why on earth anyone would buy a bag they were offered if they did not want/like it.

I love Hermes - I love the leathers/colors/quality - but somehow the retailer/customer relationship has been turned upside down. I just don't "get it"....
