HERMES BIRKIN BAGS 7 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING YOUR FIRST BIRKIN BAG

Categories:Other Brands

buy birkin bag

Congratulations on your decision to buy a Birkin bag! Some of the most important questions to address before you being your process include: “How to buy a Birkin?” “Where to buy a Birkin?” “How do you make sure it is authentic?” At PORTERO we have been selling and consigning Birkin bags for more than 10 years, and here are the 7 things you absolutely must consider when buying your first Birkin bag.


1. Authenticity

The first thing to consider when purchasing your first Birkin bag is whether it’s authentic or not. Always buy from a reputable seller who provides lots of pictures of different angles of the bag. If the bag is authentic the seller will have nothing to hide.

2. Size

Buy Birkin Bag

When buying your first Birkin, consider your lifestyle. Are you a mom on the go who needs a roomy bag? Do you plan on using your Birkin mostly for travel? Perhaps you’re really loving the current mini bag trend, or maybe you’re petite and prefer a bag that doesn’t overtake your figure. Because of the many options available, consider all these factors before making your purchase.

3. Color

Think about your wardrobe and how your Birkin fits in it. A lot of people opt for black as their very first Birkin color because it’s so versatile. However, perhaps a neutral color like Etoupe or Gold might work best for you. Maybe you want your Birkin to stand out and want to get a pop of color. Hermès has a large amount of beautiful colors you can choose from, so it’s worth spending some time researching them, and deciding on the one you’ll wear the most.

5. Hardware

Buying Your First Birkin Bag

The two most popular hardware options offered by Hermès are Gold and Palladium. When picking out a hardware for your first Birkin you should consider which tone of accessories you wear the most. If you don’t care much for a matchy-matchy look, or you wear both tones the same, then hardware selection will not be an important factor. However, most women prefer one over the other.

4. Leather

Hermès also offers an array of different leathers. Togo is the most popular one because it does not scratch easy and can be refurbished at the Hermès Spa to make it look like new. However, Togo is heavier than other leathers. For example, Clemence is smoother to the touch but will not hold its shape over time, this gives the bag a slouchier feel. We recommend researching the different types of leathers (and exotic skins) Hermès has available before making your decision. You can refer to our Hermès Leather Guide video for more information.

6. Price

How much is a Birkin bag

By now you must know Birkin bags are an investment. Though what is the best price to buy a Birkin bag? You should be prepared to spend anywhere from $7,000 to $100,000 on your first Birkin, depending on the leather (or skin), size, color and hardware of your choice. Purchasing a Birkin in the secondary market will come with a premium but will guarantee instant gratification and guarantees you will get the exact same Birkin bag you want. At the boutique you will not only have to wait, but you will be offered what they have, which may not be the bag you want. In the secondary market you also have the option of perusing pre-loved handbags that will come with a lower price tag. And always remember, if the price is too good to be true, the bag is most likely a fake.

7. Accessories

Buy Birkin Bag

A pre-loved Birkin may or may not come with its original orange box, but if it does it will cost you extra. An Hermès dustbag is always preferable, but you can keep you first Birkin safe in any other dust bag that is size appropriate. Before purchasing your first Birkin, be honest with yourself about how much you want the accessories, and consider if you have the appropriate room in your closet for them.

Hermes Birkin Bag Sizes and Prices

Categories:Other Brands

The Hermes Birkin bags sizes are available in 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50cm sizes. There are also two bigger models, the 45cm and 55cm, which are intended to be used as traveling bags, but these are no longer made.

The Hermes HAC is similar to the Birkin and most people cannot tell the difference. This bag comes in 27cm, 32cm and 37cm sizes and features shorter straps. It is no longer made though. But you can find some in the resale market.

Birkin Bag Sizes

Birkin 25cm
L25×H20×W13
L10xH8xW5
Price Approx: $8,000
The smallest of Birkin bags, the 25cm one, appeared in 2004. It remains a popular accessory for evening events such as dinner parties.

Birkin 30cm
L30×H22×W16
L12xH8.5xW6
Price Approx: $9,000
The 30cm Birkin has proven to be popular in certain markets because it fits more diminutive statures. Great for those looking for an evening bag look or those around 5’2″ or under.

Birkin 35cm
L35×H25×W18
L14xH10xW7
Price Approx: $10,000
The 35cm Birkin is regarded by most as the best choice and remains the most coveted bag from Hermes. For most women, the size is not overpowering, and holds a lot for our busy lifestyles.

L40×H30×W21
L15.5xH13xW8
Price Approx: $11,000
It’s the size of the first Birkin, made by requirement of Jane Birkin. The 40cm Birkin will always be known as the original design. It is a little too big for most woman but is a great size for a man. Also great for a woman looking for more of a briefcase or a small travel bag.

Birkin 45cm
L45×H30×W19
L17.5xH12xW7.5

The 45cm Birkin was once the biggest model available with two types of a handle and a shoulder strap.

This is now the largest Birkin bag current sold by Hermes. It is clearly a travel bag and only comes in certain leathers. The price is rumored to be around $15,000. Unfortunately I cannot find the actual dimensions. The next time I’m in the store, I’ll ask and update the post.

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

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.
