Hi I'm new to the whole Hermes frenzy. Could someone answer some of the questions that I have?

1. Obviously exotic skins are the most expensive but what I was wondering is are the leathers priced differently? Like is Clemence more expensive than Togo?

2. What sizes does the Kelly and Birkin come in and what is the current price range for each size?

3. How many Cadena are produced each year?

4. I just added my name to the Birkin bag list but are there Birkins or Kelly's in stock from time to time that one can just buy off of the shelf?

5. Are all the purses handmade or is it just the Birkin and Kelly?

6. Why do they not list the different Hermes purse styles on their website and since they do not where can I go to look at all the styles that are available?

Thank you in advance for all of your help. I've always been an LV girl but the Hermes quality is just too good to pass up :smile: My orange Togo 26 cm SO Kelly is on it's way and should be here by Monday....can't wait!!

3. How many Cadena are produced each year?
I don't know, and I don't know if anyone else does. No one can agree on the real # of Birkins produced each year, much less Cadena. Unless you mean styles?

4. I just added my name to the Birkin bag list but are there Birkins or Kelly's in stock from time to time that one can just buy off of the shelf?
Yes. See also: http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes-shopping/inventory-update-what-have-you-seen-and-where-13388.html

5. Are all the purses handmade or is it just the Birkin and Kelly?
It is my impression, though someone please correct me if I am wrong, that all leather/exotic bags are handstitched. I cannot vouch for the cloth ones.

6. Why do they not list the different Hermes purse styles on their website and since they do not where can I go to look at all the styles that are available?
