I tried looking for an "Identify This Hermes" thread but did not see one. Tried doing research through out tPF but no luck.

Ok so I'm looking for a new Messenger bag... Hermes, Louis V. or Prada

I came across this bag online and wondering who can give me info on it.

Here are two pictures... Any information would be extremely appreciated.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST ANY OTHER HERMES BAG PLEASE FEEL FREE :biggrin:

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

It comes in two sizes: 35 and 38 cm for the messenger bag. The price starts at USD $7,300 for clemence leather. The etoupe one in the pic is very nice since it has the white constrast stitching.

Here are some pics of mine in ebene clemence: http://orangebox.ernskie.com/?p=102327601

this Steve bag should be quite readily available in most H stores. There is another larger version Steve 44 which comes with detachable strap and is designed more as a laptop/briefcase. The prices are all quite similar I believe.

If you are looking for a more casual bag, you can also consider the following H bags

1. The new Yohji Yamamoto special edition of messenger bag or
2. The Tibet bag or
3. The Jypsiere 37 which is sort of a Birkin messenger bag or
4. The Evelyne in GM size (this is officially unisex bag, i think)

It is best that you visit the H store to have an actual feel. Unlike Birkins, these bags should be "relatively" easier to come by and see.

Good luck with your search!

P.S. I know it is not on your list, but have you considered the BV woven messenger bag?

I have always been curious about the Jypsiere 37 messenger bag. Has anyone seen them readily available at Hermes stores or do they have to be ordered? Thanks in advance!

^^ readily available, I think even in big airport shops.
Thanks Allan, I'll have a check on that one.
I have so far seen online pics of it. It looks really appealing but I am worried that it might look a bit feminine on me. (I am a guy, in case anyone's wondering...)
