This is my first time to write about the birkin...Ive been bitten by the Hermes bug finallyyyyy and Ive fallen in love with both the blue jean ostrich birkin and the black birkin. How can I manage to order them? Do I walk into the store and place my name on a waiting list? Also could you give me tips on what you think the best leather is for a black birkin? Ive been to the reference library and had a look at some things but I got lost a bit. Heremesoholics help please. p.s if anyone can please post pics of the BJ ostrich Id be indebted. Thank you very much.
