First Hermes boutique experience

  1. Yes, i am totally new to hermes and god knows how many time i have walked by the hermes store in melbourne but never have the courage to get in. Not just because i found that it was kind of intimidating but also i knew that their price range is not something that i can afford at the moment. Well, today i finally step my feet into hermes store.:p In the display window were a gorgeous black kelly with silver hardware and some colorful Herbags. As soon as i step in, a nice SA lady approach me with smile on her face and kindly asked me if i was looking anything in particular. I asked to see some mens belts and bracelets(yep, i am a guy). The belt were so gorgeous and elegant, but i didn't really like the colors they had in store. And then i looked at some bracelet, nothing really caught my eye besides the collier de chien bracelet.Suddenly, i saw a bag that could only live in my dream and i could feel my heart was jumping like crazy:heart:. Yes, it was a birkin!!on the display shelf.:drool: i guess it was a birkin 45 or 50(sorry, i am not so familiar with the birkin sizing yet), in dark brown grained leather with silver hardware. It was my dream bag right in front of me, the color, the size...i admired looking at the birkin for about 5 seconds then i forced myself to walked away, 'cause i knew there was no way i could afford it right now, so i didn't even bother to ask for the price.Plus, i don't want the SA think i am just another crazy birkin fanatic.

    I ended up didn't buy anything(i didn't plan to buy anything anyway), but overall, my first Hermes experience was great and it was glad to know Hermes SAs were nice too.:rolleyes: i should start saving my money,and hopefully i will have my first hermes piece in not long future.
  2. duncan, I love hearing the good SA stories. :smile: I think a man
    would look great in a CDC bracelet. It's good to know that your
    first trip inside a H boutique was a nice one. :smile:
  3. Glad to hear your first venture into Hermes was a good one! I did not buy anything either my first visit, but the store definitely left an impression!

    You will go back...and I'm sure buy something you love.

    Perhaps give the SA you spoke to a call and let her know the belt you are looking for exactly. I'm sure she will appreciate you remembering her.
  4. Welcome, duncan! I'm happy to hear you had a great first experience at the boutique. Pls keep dreaming and planning - that Birkin will be yours someday. :heart:
  5. Oh, well, you are doomed now! That first whiff of Hermes leather and you're hooked for life. Do not be surprised if that bag comes back to you frequently in your dreams. I always think that Hermes belts look spectacular in an understated way on men but you are right to be fussy about colour. All the best.
  6. Glad to hear of your good experience! I can tell you it only gets better :tup:
  7. Once you focus, it's really amazing how quickly an Hermes bag can be saved up for!
    Welcome to the orange side - there's no way back!
  8. Welcome! What a lucky fellow you are to actually see a Birkin on your first trip into Hermes. It's wonderful to hear you were treated graciously even if you didn't buy anything. Sometimes it is just fun to poke around and see things at the store before choosing to save up for something in particular. Best of luck on your Hermes journey.
  9. Is the CDC able to fit you? My SA said that it'll be too small for my wrists. (I'm a guy too!)
  10. Hi Duncan! I love reading these stories! You are a man of refined taste and I am sure you will be swimming in "orange" before you know it!
  11. I didn't try it on but i suppose it will fit me.I have tiny wrists, i even wear the smallest size of tiffany's and LV bracelet,haha.should i be proud of that:sweatdrop:
  12. Duncan, I love reading your story. Start saving some money now and be focus. :smile:
  13. Duncan.. great beginning!! Goodluck:smile:
  14. Very nice. So glad you enjoyed the first visit!
  15. Yes! You should be proud of it! I wanted the Kelly bracelet, but it couldn't loop around my wrists twice! =(
