A little background... I just started collecting vintage Hermes pieces. This size Haut a Courroies I have been eagerly searching for I would say for the past few months. I finally found a great price and condition and wanted to post my reveal. I am numb with excitement! The leather is vache natural, 55 cm in size with gold hardware. Vache and Barenia are my two favorite leathers, so this was a great find. It is 30-years old, but the condition really surprised me as I have seen vintage Hermes in much worse condition. The stitching and leather is completely in tact. There are some scratches, very few stains, but no tears or stitching that needs repair. The hardware shows wear as well. Love this one! I do have two questions for those who have collected similar pieces: -Does Hermes still refurbish HAC of this size that are so old? -And, does Hermes still make the Haut a Courroies, 50 cm as a special order? Thank you! Enjoy the pics!
