How To Buy An Hermès Bag: A Buyer Advises For Kelly 25 Retourne

How to Buy An Hermès Bag

Here I tell you how to buy an Hermès bag if you were thinking of Kelly, Birkin or Constance

This article has all the answers!

Instruction on how to buy Kelly or Birkin from Hermès by yourself

So how to buy an Hermès bag? I’ve got my Kelly 25 Retourne from a store in Lisbon (which I agree with you, it’s not Paris…but hey! it’s Hermès! It doesn’t matter which country it is in).

It is equally hard to get where it is in France, Portugal, etc.

I assume that before reading this, you have already tried your luck at least at one of the Hermès stores out there.

Most likely, you did not succeed during that interview (and yes, your visit to the store is not just any visit – it becomes an interview).

Before we start, ensure you know how to pronounce Hermès correctly because you don’t want inconvenient situations with your seller.

Hermès is a French brand, so you should pronounce it in French: “ehr-mez”.

The H letter is silent, and S is pronounced as ”Z”. To be 100% sure, call the official store and you will hear their ringtone pronouncing Hermés correctly.
