hi all, i have been a member of tpf for a while now and thanks to the hermes group i have not only learned a lot but also my collection grew while the opposite happened to my bank account :P
i was hoping to go to paris soon to place a special order but i wanted to ask you all soemthing before i go and make a fool of myself..

is it possible to have a 3o or 35cm birkin made with black crocodile/alligator linings, pipings, with the handles and the clasp area? i think i have previously seen a picture of it somewhere on tpf (i think it was a beautiful orange birkin)?

i really want a black birkin in my collection but i want it to look special which is why i want this done so bad!

TIA to all!!:flowers::flowers:

it depends on whether or not you'll get to place an order in the first place.

I recently found out that it was not only me who has been told that FSH doesn't take orders at the moment (they'll start taking it again at September, I was told). Then again, there's mich's DH who has been granted to place an SO for a Birkin a few weeks ago.

Hermes is tricky.

good luck. :yes:

This is a question for our dear lilach to help. I suspect it's only for FSH window display only. (or super ultra VVVVVIPs only)

^^Mrs S your very right! The Croc and Toile combo is hard to get accepted. I have seen this only in Japan (due to there high volume of super VVVIP's). During my current holiday visit I have seen only a few exotic & toile combo H purses, but resell price is very high!

wow both the kelly and birkin would do for me (only thing that would swing me to one side would be their price :P.. although i suspect that the kelly would be cheaper maybe..
mrssparkles: really? so i would not get a chance to order it? :confused1: it truly does look like an amazing piece to own

ooh i would love for the famous lilach to help me

^^Humm... again that would be almost impossible unless your a Super VVVIP. I have only seen one mix Croc & Boxcalf Birkin 30cm. But it was a SO and only granted to this one specific Japanese socialite. This is the only one that I am aware of. Some combos Hermes will not do. If they feel that a certain SO will "not uphold the look of Hermes" then they will not accept the SO. This is a quote from my store manager. This info is what I know, I am sure that others may have more to offer. Good luck.

lilach can help provide the answer. Not help you get the bag :sweatdrop:

simplyprincess is giving the right idea. Thanks, sweetie. Be it toile or another leather.

I would love to see the Tokyo reseller stores one day! Must be super special H bags galore!

Whether or not you would be "allowed" to order, totally depends on your H relationships. And you need to be their top tier customers.
