    Hello all. I am new to these parts, but I wanted to share my new Birkin with you. I picked it up from Hermes yesterday and snapped one quick picture, but I will definitely take more later today. (Should have done the whole 'reveal' thing. lol) It's a black 35 Togo w/PHW. I love it so much. My question is this. Upon greater review of the bag at home, I noticed the corners are subtly dull, almost like a tiny bit rubbed. I don't know how to describe it other than to say the leather feels different from the rest of the bag. I'm going to see if I can capture it in pictures, but I doubt it. Is this normal and just where the corners all come together? I mean I'm certain Hermes is not going to sell me a used bag, I hope. lol

    Anyhow, here's a pic and more to come. Thanks!

  2. Areas on the bag where the leather is stretched more, the handles, corners, will show less grain of the leather. Maybe this is what you are seeing. Look at the handles and you will see much less of the Togo grain.
     
  3. Congrats! Beautiful first Birkin! :tup:

    I agree with golconda. The leather looks bit different in the corners, as you don't see hardly any grains. I'm sure that Hermès hasn't sold you an used bag! ;)
     
  4. Oh wow, I just looked at my handles and it's similar to the corners. Makes sense now! Thanks golconda and DiamondS!!!!!
     
  5. congratulations on you bag - its beautiful. I also agree with golconda, no need to worry. Enjoy your bbb! :yahoo:
