I'm waiting on two special order birkins.

My SA and SM say that because the orders are SOs they will take longer. It has been almost 1 year. Augh! The waiting is killing me. :cry:

How long did your Special Order take to come to you? What should I expect?

I'm waiting for one since Jan. 2005. My previous ones never took so long. They claim it will arrive eventually.

Placed at FSH, less than 6 months...anything I have ordered there has taken less than that.
I have no confidence in estimating the time frame for an SO (or even PO) in the States, however.

From what I know, it depends. I have a SO that involves the special hardware and it's already more than a year.
It never been declined, but the time frame was never specified as well.

I hope that you will get yours soon, like one day you will get a special surprise!

:heart:Elena

^^ Ditto Lilach.

It takes anywhere between 2-3 months to 1-2 years. Really depends on the availability of the color + leather choice. Croc orders take slightly longer, esp. if you are going for rare colors.

I hope you get yours soon Sus!!

Depends on what your special order is like - if it is one of those bi-colour, tricolor or special colors, then typically 1 year for non exotics - as per my experience.
