After much contemplation, I went ahead and made the purchase! I just returned from the bank after making a wire-transfer to eBoutique for the new, AUTHENTIC, 35cm black togo Hermes Birkin with palladium hardware. The bank employee said that the transfer should be complete by noonish today EST, so hopefully eBoutique will be able to send the bag today and I can receive it tomorrow! I'm so excited to be able to find that one last remaining bag my wife has not been able to get so far (I'm sure her wishlist will grow, but right now this is the last one)! All I have to do is wait for the bag, take it with me to my local Hermes for verification (I mean, a "cleaning"), and once they ok it, it'll be all good! Can't wait to see my wife's expression when I give it to her for V-day!
