Hi everyone,
Long time lurker...
Have been following this threat for so long, but for some reason never had the chance to participate and intervene.
I am slowly “creating” my collection. I own birkins 30 and 35 and I’m about to purchase my second 25. My SA told me she can offer me straight away a birkin 25, vert amande, togo, ghw.
She also told me, that if I’m willing to wait a couple of weeks (time of waiting is not not an issue for me), she would be able to offer me a birkin 25 vert criquet, epsom, phw.
This is huge for me, because I absolutely love both colors, however, I cannot choose, simple as that (yes, I know, “first word problems”).
Would love to read your suggestions...
Thank you all!

Welcome to the board Guanes☺
Well, tough choice indeed. You are very lucky to be offered these two bags.
I usually go for “neutrals”, as a personal preference, and Vert amande is lovely, however, vert criquet is so dreamy, and birkin in epsom leather is very sought after. I would go for the later to be honest

I assume the Vert criquet in epsom is actually a sellier birkin which makes the style pretty different than the classic B25 in Togo. I also greatly prefer the grey green of Amande so would easily pick that one.

Vert Amande! Beautiful neutral with a hint of green. Good luck with your decision!

Amande- such a gorgeous chameleon color and more neutral. Criquet is so beautiful by IMHO very hard to match.

Birkin Bliss
VC is like seafoam green to me which has beachy vibes and a summery feel. I do not like Birkins in epsom or PHW on VC.
I do however love and would choose the VA GHW Togo leather all the way.

Another vote for Amande here, it’s just more useful in my opinion.

take what I say with a pinch of salt though, since I don’t really like bags/big items in VC...

+1 to vert amande. I may be in the minority but I really only like VC in small doses (I own SLGs in it). In bags it's not my favorite. Vert Amande on the other hand I think is beautiful!

I also don't like Epsom as much as Togo. So both color & leather-wise, the VA is a clear winner for me. In the end though, seriously just go for whichever one you love!
