Five Reasons I Want an Hermes Birkin

Categories:Other Brands

Few pieces in fashion cause more chatter or stronger feelings than the iconic Hermes Birkin. The look, the price, the exclusivity – love it or hate it, the bag is an attention-grabber, not to mention a beautiful piece of handbag lore. The smell coming off of a brand new leather Birkin is nearly intoxicating, and for what people pay for those bags, they probably should get you high. It’s only fair.

That being said, I’ve always had slightly mixed feelings about Hermes’s most famous bag when it comes to whether or not I want to own one myself. And as my therapist always says, it’s good to talk these things out, so join me after the jump for my personal list of pros and cons. To Birkin, or not to Birkin? That is the question.

[Editor’s Note: This post was originally published on June 15, 2011.]

The Pros:

1. The Hermes Birkin is the ultimate handbag.Whether or not you’re a fan of the design, the Birkin has a very special place in the fashion industry that doesn’t appear ready to change any time soon. And handbags are kind of my life at this point (that and Real Housewives, someone pass me a cocktail), so it seems only fitting that I acquire one at some point in the future, right?

2. Birkins come in virtually every leather and color combination imaginable. I’m a big fan of getting exactly what I want as often as possible (and although true, I’m not as insufferable as that makes me sound) and the laundry list of colors, leathers, sizes and hardwares that are available from Hermes appeals to the stickler in me. Forget about waiting until the right season for the right color – if you know who to ask and where to look, you can probably find the Birkin you want right now.

3. A Birkin is neutral, no matter what color it is.Come on, who’s going to question you for carrying Hermes? No one, that’s who. And if someone does, you can just tell yourself that she’s incredibly jealous, which might actually be true. Haters gonna hate, and they’re gonna hate on your bag. But if you spend that much money on something, you have every right to carry it as much or as little as you please. Even if you’re just running to Rite Aid to buy a candy bar and some hand soap.

4. I feel left out. I now live in a neighborhood where it seems like even the homeless people have Birkins and I’m starting to feel entitled to one. Why wasn’t I issued my Birkin upon entering the Upper East Side? Did I slip through a crack of some sort? It was surely a very expensive, well-bred crack, if that’s the case. But now that I’ve figure out that I was overlooked, someone needs to make this up to me. I’m just going to grab the next one that I see. What? That’ll get me arrested? And beaten by the NYPD, in all likelihood? Well then.

5. Take away the name and the prestige, and the Birkin is still a beautiful piece. It wouldn’t command the five-figure price tags if it weren’t. Prestige can get you a lot of places in the fashion industry, but the Birkin wouldn’t have been sustained this long (and Hermes wouldn’t still be growing rapidly year-on-year) if the construction and finishing of the bag weren’t impeccable. Even someone who’s not interested in fashion can look at a Birkin and tell that it’s a special piece. It just has that special aura about it, which is so hard to find in a day and age when nearly every manufacturer has moved to mass production.

The Cons:

1. They cost more than many used cars. As jaded as I am when it comes to prices in the fashion industry, five figures is still quite a strong pill to swallow. With tax, that’s the starting figure for a Birkin big enough to be carried as an everyday bag, and I can think of a lot of other ways to spend ten grand. I’m sure you can too, unless you’re the lucky lady who looks at $10,000 as though it’s pocket change. In that case…would you like to buy me a Birkin?

2. I don’t have much use for bags that sit in the crook of my arm. I already have a Celine Luggage Tote, which I love dearly and carry any time that I feel as though I should look extra fashionable. Other than that, I’m a shoulder bag and crossbody girl, through and through. That’s only been dialed up since I moved to the city and realized that arm-carried bags get heavier and heavier, the further you walk. Birkins are heavy to begin with and only get heavier when filled, so until I’m car-service rich, maybe I should consider an Hermes Jypsiere instead.

3. I’m not really in the Birkin demographic.Although I’ve seen many women my age carrying Birkins and I’m a firm believer that fashion has no age requirement so long as you’re self-confident, I’m not sure that the Birkin really fits my look. I’m more of a slouchy bag person, whereas the Birkin requires a certain sort of buttoned-up sophistication that I’ve yet to adopt. Perhaps if I worked in an office, I’d be ready for a Birkin. Maybe then I’d also have that law degree like my dad always wanted.

4. Everyone has one. Sadly, this con goes hand-in-hand with pro number four. I prefer to be ahead of the curve instead of behind it, and although the Birkin doesn’t really have a curve of which to speak, sometimes I feel as though buying one would be like pledging an exclusive sorority that doesn’t really need or want new members. I only lasted for a month in my actual sorority in college, but thankfully that didn’t cost as much as a Birkin would.

5. I’m a fickle pickle. $10,000 handbags really aren’t a great idea for someone who likes to follow her fashion whims. If I were to spend that much money on a handbag, I would be fresh out of whims for at least a year and probably resent my bag for killing all of my other options.

To me, I think the clear answer is that I don’t need a Birkin for a very, very long time. What about you – could you ever see yourself buying one? Already have a dozen in the closet? Let us know in the comments.

A Knock Off Birkin Bag Worth Spending Money On

A Knock Off Birkin Bag Worth Spending Money On

I wouldn’t mind owning a Knock off Birkin bag as long as it will share the similarities with the authentic brand. Think I am crazy? Well, believe me I am not. And I often find myself fighting the idea that once you buy a luxury product you get a lifetime guarantee. You can still be and look glamorous without spending top dollar and keep for a lifetime the replica. But here is a trick (or tricks) we should learn about for overcoming nasty situations.


Knock off Birkin bags are all over the place, but an amazing replica Birkin can not be found anywhere. Unexperienced opinions say that when you invest in a knockoff, you’re not investing in anything and you are at a loss when the bag starts to fall apart. That’s the whole idea, getting the most exquisite replica, that won’t let you down. But how can we have one? Follow some simple steps that will help you recognize a good replica over a bad one.

The Label Stamps

A Knock Off Birkin Bag Should Have The Label Stamps Checked

The label stamps can give you a clue on how good or bad your knock off Birkin bag is. The above picture is representative for that. These are the label stamps hallmarked on the top of the bag. On the amazing Birkin replica, on the left, they are high and close to the stitching. If it happens to be in the middle, somewhere between the stitching and the lock, that’s a dead giveaway, and you should not be ashamed to decline it. Keep in mind that, while the good replica Birkin has the stamp part of the fabric, the bad one has its stamp on top of the leather.

The Lock

A Knock Off Birkin Bag Should Have Chekced The Lock

The following step should lead you to Birkin’ replica lock. Undo the lock and pull back the arm to reveal the blind stamp. Surprinsingly, amazing knock off Birkin bags are handmade by one artisan, so they put their own stamp on it, along with the blind stamp, indicating the year it was made. Look at the stamp’s quality; it should be very deep, looking like it was machine-stamped. A good knock off Birkin bag will have the stamps much fainter, hardly to be seen.

Stitching, corners, hardware

 A Knock Off Birkin Bag Should Have Checked The Details

Even if you don’t have an authentic bag to compare a fake against, you can check out for any inconsistencies on details like hardware. A poor knock off Birkin bag will always give oneself away, because there will always be that one place where it’s just not consistent with the quality of the brand. And that place, as the experience shows it, it is the hardware. Even an unexperienced person can tell if a hardware is plastic, because it does not get cold and it feels lighter, also.

If you are planning to purchase a knock off Birkin bag, check out the stitching, because it is a factor that reveales the fake’s identity. If you don’t look closely, the replica Birkin may seem quite well stitched. But if you start looking at finer details—edges and corners—you’ll notice around here that the stitchings will get sloppy. So, the hardware and the stitchings will always tell the true about your knock off Birkin bag. These are some of the inconsistencies that you won’t find in an amazing replica bag.

Check out the above tips, because even if you can’t afford a Birkin bag, you can still enjoy owning an amazing replica, for a life time.

Why Choose A Classic Fake Birkin Bag Instead Of Going The Extra Mile

Categories:Other Brands

We’ve seen some really good replica Hermes bag reviews lately – the beautiful fake Birkin bagin Ostrich leather from UbGallery.co and the black replica Birkin bag from PurseValley.cn. Still, I think it’s time to see some bad Hermes replica bags as well. These reminders are very good because this is how you train your eyes to recognize the bad fakes. It’s also a good occasion to see what are some of the most common flaws a fake Hermes bag will have.

As a reminder, some of the most common ways to spot a fake Birkin bag are to check the stamp, the engraved belt, the shape, the stitching, the lock and the key. But I’m sure that those of you who have more knowledge about the Birkin bag know that there are many other details that make the Birkin what it is, the Holy Grail of luxury handbags.

First of all, do I really need to tell you that a real Hermes Birkin bag will never come cheap? This is the kind of designer bag that doesn’t lose its value in time, so even if it’s old and used, it’s still going to cost a lot. For example, there is a seller on eBay who has listed two Hermes Birkin bags under the name of yuko0702. The seller is listed as top-rated seller and has 99.7% Positive feedback. The seller claims that the bags are authentic and yet one of them costs $100 and the other one $720.00. It is clear that these bags are not really authentic. You should be very careful when it comes to listings like this because no matter how tempting it is, you can be sure those bags are fake.

At the same time, I doubt that those who are very detail-oriented would ever buy a $200 replica. These are the people I wrote the post on custom-made fake Birkin bag for. Of course there’s going to be a big difference between a handstitched replica and a machine-sewn Birkin!

How A Bad Fake Hermes Bag Looks Like

Here are some bags don’t even fall under the category of a fake Birkin bag if you ask me. They are so far away from the original design that they should be considered Birkin dupes at most even though they have a stamp or an engraving. These are the kind of replicas that should cost under $100 and you should never pay more than that for a fake Hermes bag like this.

Rare Hermes Birkin Bags – Should You Get A Replica?

I would recommend you to avoid buying extremely rare or exotic replica Hermes bags unless you are positive they are really good copies. Just think of it this way: how could a crocodile-embossed fake Birkin bag that costs $300 ever look like an authentic Birkin that costs over $10,000? Just try to keep it real.

Real Hermes Birkin Himalayan

This Exotic Hermes Birkin Bag Is $432,000

The Himalayan croc Birkin with diamonds is the perfect example of why you shouldn’t go the extra mile sometimes. The authentic is priced at the exorbitant price of $432,000 (!!). So no matter how good a replica is, you just can’t expect it to look like the real deal. And probably no one is going to believe you are wearing a real Birkin either because let’s face it, how many people actually have this kind of money? The bag is extraordinary but I for one have come at peace with the fact that I will never afford something like this.

And now here are some replicas for comparison:

Fake Birkin Bag Himalayan Croc Wannabe

Fake Birkin Himalayan with Imitation Diamonds

This Fake Birkin Himalayan with Diamonds is £400

Oh, and there’s another problem here. Let’s say that the replica looks amazing and that it could actually pass off as authentic. But are you sure you are able to pull off wearing it? I don’t want to offend anyone, but this is an important question if you want people to think you are wearing a real Birkin. So could people ever believe that you are wearing a bag that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars?

Fake Birkin Bag – Common Is Not Bad!

Hermes Birkin Common Colors

Hermes Birkin Bag Most Popular Colors

This is exactly the reason why I usually recommend you girls to choose a classic fake Birkin bag. This means:

1. Choosing popular Hermes Birkin colors like black, gold, etoupe or orange H
2. Choosing a common type of leather like Togo, Clemence or Epsom
3. Choosing a common size like 30 or 35 cm because you’re likely to find more replicas

I know that having something more special makes anyone feel good but it’s just not the safe choice when it comes to replica bags in general. Unless you are willing to spend a few thousand dollars on a handmade fake Birkin bag. That’s the only situation where you can actually hope for your Hermes replica Birkin bag to look almost perfect.

Come See A Gorgeous Hermes Bag Replica Birkin In Ostrich Leather!

Categories:Other Brands

Thank you so much for posting very useful information regularly on your blog. I think your website/blog is the most helpful source when it comes to buying replica bags online.

I have been reading your blog for several years and I got to know my favorite seller Uncle Bench thanks to you. However, I am recently seeing negative reviews about them, so I decided to share my lovely experiences with Uncle Bench with you so that more people can get amazing Hermes bag replica!

[Customer Services]
I have bought from Uncle Bench more than 5 times and my experiences with them were ALWAYS GREAT. I have used several methods to communicate with them – email, WeChat and Skype and I am satisfied with customer services by Rachel, Hugh and Laura. Though I am not a native speaker of English and we all use “foreign language” to communicate each other, their English are really good and there is NO misunderstanding between us.

[Item I am reviewing this time]
Today I am sharing one of my favorite bags I bought from them. I bought this Mykonos Ostrich Birkin 30 gold hardware (2 pictures attached) from them for my first purchasing experience with Uncle Bench. It’s been several years I bought from them but I always get attention wherever I go!

[From Order to Shipping]
My favorite color is blue and I instantly fell in love with Mykonos Ostrich color after I see it on their website, so I decided to buy it. I do understand it’s kind of risky to buy expensive exotic leather item for my first experiences with replica seller, but after doing comprehensive research and reading spotbags website, I was sure I can totally trust Uncle Bench, which was proved to be true after I receive the item.
When I asked availability of it, ostrich leather was not available so I decided to wait until it’s ready. Rachael clearly explained it will take about 3 weeks to make it and I agreed. They started making my bag after I made payment through wire transfer.
As Rachel promised me, my Hermes bag replica was made in 3 weeks and she shipped together with other Hermes bag I bought.

[Quality Control]
They have strict QC (quality control) procedure. Once bag is ready, they sent me picture so that I can confirm. In the picture they sent me, that was exactly what I received. They are really honest and reliable seller.

[Shipping]
She shipped the item to Hong Kong by Shun Fung with tracking code. The item arrived on the next day they shipped. They offered free shipping to Hong Kong!

[The bag]
I love my Mykonos Ostrich Birkin! As you see in the picture, I don’t see any differences with the Hermes authentic one and indeed, I never hesitated to go to Hermes shop with this bag in my hand. When I enter Hermes shop with this bag, the shop staff always notices me and immediately approaches me, saying “Thank you for using our bag. How can I help you today?”.
Also, when I am walking outside, I have been talked to by strangers many times and they say like “I love your Birkin!”, “Your Birkin is very beautiful!” etc.”

Not that I ever doubted it, but this review just proved again that Uncle Bench is one of the best designer replica bags sites, especially for Hermes replica bags! Shipping takes pretty long, so you have to be patient if you order from them. But if you receive a Hermes bag replica like this, I think it’s all worth it.

Still, don’t get too excited. Their quality comes with a hefty price. This Mykonos Ostrich Birkin was bought back in 2013 and at that time it was $1,580. But if you want a Hermes bag replica in ostrich leather, then you’ll have to pay $1,800 or $1,900 for a machine made fake Birkin bag. If you want the best Birkin replica custom-made and handsewn, then you’ll have to pay even more.

I know that not everyone could afford a Hermes bag replica this expensive, which is why I wrote a post on how to find the best replica Hermes bags for every budget. But then again, the authentic Hermes Ostrich Birkin bags are crazy expensive! For example, on Spotted Fashion, a Hermes Ostrich Birkin 30 Bag is listed for $18,900 but on Malleries you’ll find Hermes Ostrich bags that cost much more than that. So if you think of it this way, a Hermes bag replica this good doesn’t sound so expensive anymore, especially when it will bring you so many compliments!

Bonus: here are some photos of a Constance Elan Hermes bag replica in Etoupe that was bought for $980, also from Ubgallery.co.
