Hi Hermes Ladies: I'm dipping my toes into your subforum and trying to educate myself by reading all of your informative reference stickies and drooling over the pics of your collections. Hope I'm not out of line by posing these two questions: (1) COLORS: I'm a bit overwhelmed by the variety on the color swatches. Which of the orange shades is considered the "quintessential" most-popular-of-all-time Hermes orange? What about the reds? (2) AVAILABILITY: Is it true that the days of multi-year waiting lists for Birkins is over? My understanding is that you sometimes can now go buy a Birkin off the shelf, if you're lucky and willing to take whatever they've got in stock????
