I am pretty happy with the design of the Birkin, except for the short handles. The JPG has longer handles, but that was limited edition. Do you think Hermes will design a longer handled Birkin but in the same square shape (not rectangular like JPG)? I have a Kate Spade Sam that is the same size and shape as the Birkin in size 30, and it is easier to carry than the Birkin. Or is the original Birkin the preferred design? I have heard complaints about people getting pains from carrying the Birkin (such as from Jane Birkin herself). Will the Birkin be still as popular if it had longer handles? Will Hermes design such a bag now that Ms. Birkin has complained? Any opinions?
