Ok guys Im gonna have to preface this post with one word: O.M.G. I have found possibly the best source for Hermes replicas ever. Now before we get to discussing the actual bag I want to say that Hermes is probably one of the most popular knockoffs people go after. WhyBecause it is extremely expensive, and puts a dent into most peoples budgets. I mean if you think about it, you can get about 10-15 Louis Vuitton bags for the sticker price of 1 Hermesthats pretty crazy considering Louis Vuitton is already a fairly pricey luxury brand itself.
What makes Hermes stand out compared to other brandsIm gonna have to say it is the emphasis on the leather quality and the overall simplicity of the bag which oozes elegance. At least thats what stands out to me. As you all know I have been a handbag lover for many years (since my teens) but I have never thought about owning a Hermes bag until very recently. Another reason why Ive always hesitated to buy a replica Hermes is because it requires a pretty big investment (the really accurate replica Hermes bags are always over $1000). But I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a 25cm Birkin (I love the smaller Hermes pieces) from Perfect Hermes which came recommended in an email from a blog reader. I bought this bag around 3 months ago when I decided to splurge on my summer haul (I scooped up about 5 new bags during this shopping spree)
The site for this replica Hermes company states they only produce 50 bags a month since they use Hermes original hand sewn method to make the bags so it was nice to see how much dedication they show to the process of making the bags. I purchased my bag in a natural tan color with gold hardware, and contrasting white stitching. The bags leather is amazingapparently the import it in from Europe. You can see through the photos of the bag I have taken the immense quality of the texture. The hardware is also very preciseits not real gold hardware (they state no replica company produces it with real gold hardware), but its anodized which is good enough. Ive compared the bag to my friend Michelles real Birkin (she has a big authentic Hermes collectionlucky gal), and the differences cant be spotted by the naked eye. Here are pictures of my bag (get ready to swoon):
I also went on the consignment site 1st Dibs and searched a Hermes Birkin in a similar contrast stitch color and found it to be actually sewn with much less care than my replica. I found this really shocking since the bag is going for $16,606 on their site and I paid $1400 for my Birkin 25 which is 1/10 of their price.
I often see authentication guides calling out fakes for their sketchy stitching but clearly it seems that the authentic manufacturing standards are hell-bent on perfectly straight stitching either. I will do a more detailed fake vs. real Hermes comparison shortly to compare my bag side by side with an original.
Overall this bag was a great purchase and is holding up very well. The supple leather really stands out and I think you are getting an excellent replica for the price being charged. The bag came packaged in the Hermes gift wrapping with a bow and all, and they used DHL for shipping (which was free). Since every order is a custom make they take about 2 weeks to actually make the bag and then the shipping took about another week. The company took a deposit for half the price of the bag by wire transfer in order to begin the work on it. They emailed me photos of the bag once it was done, and when I gave them the OK and paid the remaining half they emailed me the tracking slip. It was a fairly smooth transaction minus the fact that my DHL tracking number changed midway through causing some alarm on my end. Overall though I really think they are worth checking out if you are looking for a spot on Hermes replica.
