Hi all, I was in a Hermes shop a couple days ago to buy a cashmere scarf and noticed a black 28 cm black "Birken" with silver hardware. I CANNOT BELIEVE MY EYES. The sales lady said it was a HAC and not a Birken although the style originated from the Birken, except it is taller in height. I read somewhere, maybe in this forum, that the HAC was the name for a bag by Hermes before the Birken. On trying to do some research on the Internet, I noticed that in some listings, Birken bags are listed as HAC Birkens. Anyway, the one in the shop looked soooooooooo much like a Birken. I bought it . But can anyone throw some light on my HAC bag please. Thanks.
