I would like to hear the experience of tPFers familiar with the Paris Hermes shop. If I were to visit the "mothership" for the first time, spend some (not too small amounts of) cash (e.g. twillies, ties, non-Kelly/Birkin bags, maybe even RTW), would I have any chance of placing a PO or SO as a non-regular/tourist? I would even happily fly to Paris to collect the orders when they are ready. Btw, I am Asian I mention this because I have lived/visited enough of Europe to know skin colour does make a difference more often than one might imagine.
