Thanks ladies, you've been very helpful!!! I have another question. From what I've read on this forum I understand it gets rather difficult to get on that desired List, but I had a misfortune of getting a fake Birkin for a ridiculous amount of money from Ebay. The seller said it was authentic and on pictures it looked good, but when I got it and took it to my local Hermes boutique, the store manager said it was made of plastic!!! Imagine my embarassment. Although she was extremely nice and said that I should put my name on the waitlist, at that time I wanted to get croc birkin. A few months later I called her up and she took my order right over the phone saying that it might take only 1 year. What do you guys think? She also said as I wanted either Blue Jean or Potiron, they have a policy for only one choice and when the bag comes in I will have to get it. I gladly assured her that I will get either one. She also mentioned one of the most difficult combos to get was Gold in Chevre(she called it goat leather). I know after the conversation with her I was quite optimistic!!!
