    May I ask what makes this "sac haut" any different than just a large birkin? I have never heard of this style before.

    I couldn't find any pictures of the Sac Haut (Haute?), but I'm considering getting one of these Hermès bags as my "male Birkin" ...

    [​IMG] I also really *love* this messenger style, but I'd want it in a different color.

    I had a larger sized Birkin-a 40 or 45 (can't remember)-which I sold like a week ago-I never used it, but I don't believe it was actually designated as a men's bag.

    Those canvas totes are OK, I have considered one, but by no stretch of the imagination are they a male birkin. They are very dorky, something a museum docent would use. However, they now offer them in the Cheval Suprise scarf print-which is just fabulous.

    Those canvas totes and messengers do absolutely nothing for me, I'm afraid. They've been out for eons, and while popular, I could never understand their appeal (besides the obvious "allure" of the label...). I can understand how certain people can get crazy over the idea of a $300 Hermes bag, but they're not for me. They look so casual the only thing they'd be good for is a trip to the beach...

    And after having personally seen their crude construction and pedestrian design details, I seriously wonder why Hermes would keep churning out products like these that obviously go against their established reputation of being the best of the best.

    Bottega Veneta has a real chance of overtaking Hermes in the leather goods department - overall they have a much stronger portfolio of products, design and quality wise.

    The bag that Acid is talking about is the Hermes Haut a Courroies, the bag that originally inspired the Birkin shape. It's just like the Birkin, but not as wide and a bit taller, making the shape more masculine. It also has shorter handles.

    It was actually first produced in 1900, so this model is 104 years old this year...

    I don't think that is so realistic. Does Bottega make every bag by hand? Do they only employ the highest crafters in the world to make their bags? If your bottega bag is in need of repair, do they send it back to the SAME craftsman who made it in the first place? I really don't see how BV can even compete in the Hermes playing field, even if they do offer a nice, high quality product.

    Um, actually, "yes" to all your questions, plus the fact that BV has a much more progressive design philosophy. Gaultier is now at Hermes, but it's a habit of Hermes to exclude its staple leather goods from the duties of its creative director, so I'm expecting few changes in that department.

    Did you happen to know anything about BV before shouting our your doubts, btw? :rolleyes:

    An excerpt from FWD's preview of their fall 2002 collection:

    Their bags are also almost devoid of hardware, and are so soft they could be rolled up without compromising their structural integrity or harming the materials.

    The only advantage Hermes has over BV is its label's strength and heritage - about which I don't give a flying hoot. I'm sure tons of label queens and fashion victims would though, but that's only going to make BV the intelligent insider's choice that it's striving to be.
