I would like to start a thread to learn if any of you have had SAs steer you towards or away certain leathers or items. I've had several SAs due to moving around the US since I began my affair with Hermes and it seems that each one will politely steer me towards certain pieces and leathers and away from certain things. I'd love to hear if any others have had this happen. I've been nudged towards Togo and Box. Togo for the "holding of shape while soft to the touch and wonderfully scented. Also its durability and good wear in almost all conditions". Of course Box is obvious, the reconditioning that is obtained even years later and its patina. And Barenia seems to be a common favorite of Hermes staff. Several SAs have grimaced at Swift, saying it is too soft/slouchy (which of course some love) and also that it will show wear sooner than others. All SAs have always loved Croc! I guess that is an easy one. Some SAs seem to adore the enamel bracelets while others have told me that they are much too frail.
