For The Person Who Has Everything…Except A Town Car
The Hermès Metro Card holder

NEW YORK: Monday, January 26, 2004

WHY: With Hermès, even your Metro Card can go glam.* In honor of the 100th anniversary of the NYC subway, the house that brought us the Birkin, the Kelly, and leather Post-It note covers has created a limited edition Metro Card holder that will be available exclusively at the Madison Avenue boutique. But impatient luxury goods shoppers beware: with only 150 in production, there’s already a waiting list for these subway swipers.*

WHERE: Hermès Madison Avenue boutique.* 212-751-3181.

PRICE: $150, and your very valuable time.

its a cute idea but when you're riding the subway you really need your card IN HAND when you go through the barrier things

the worst thing EVER are the people who stand there trying to find their card

Sure, but it isn't *HERMÈS*

(If I could make that text sparkle and twirl, I would)

I'm fine with public transport : it's just the public I don't like. Even so that's a ridiculous price for a tiny piece of leather - I could buy a (very bad) car for about five times that price.

Ahhh, mmm, ooook... Why?

At first I thought, "in 10 years of riding NYC subway, I saw maybe 5 women carrying Hermes bags - the Hermes woman would ride in a limo or take a cab". Then I thought that's it's probably a smart move, because people who can't afford the bag, can afford the MetroCard holder. Still, since when did Hermes start trying to be all things to alll people? BTW, $70 buys you a 30 day unlimited ride pass.

Meena - I love your card holder. I'm also looking for one but have never seen the Bearn card holder like yours. I've only seen ones that close with a button.

Is it relatively flat and how many card slots does it have?
