Mafoofan struggles to buy breast wallet at Hermes . . . arises victorious! - Page 16

I'm sorry I called him a jerk, but if I had observed his behavior in the boutique that I frequent or in any other place of business, I would probably reach the same conclusion. Sometimes a post in a forum comes off in a different tone than it was written. I do apologize for calling your poster a jerk. But I think he doesn't sound very nice.
By the way, if you notice my screen name, I am a poodle person not a cat person, so you all have the wrong person. Interesting to find out that you guys cruise and lurk the purse forum!

This is laughable! Women must be from another planet if you think you have to be entitled to order a piece of leather from a leather goods maker who has a retail store that they sell leather goods from. Cleary the woman at the store was being difficult for the sake of being difficult, that or she is a outright retard.

There are plenty of small leather goods makers throughout Europe who I'm sure could make a very comparable item in terms of quality and also make it solely for YOU. Knowing that the OP travels to Italy for suits and sportscoats wouldn't it make sense to use one of artisans instead of some stuffy retailer who caters to Wallstreet housewives with too much time and money to spend?

I'm not saying it would not be nice. What I mean is why would it be his first, and apparently only, choice. I would understand it if he already had one, or several in more "traditional" colors, but for someone who preaches the "one" wardrobe, it seems an odd choice.

Any company that has a web store loses any claims to uber-exclusivity. It's nice to have this thread now when things often get so slow at Christmas.

The Tubo is more exclusive.

5. Sometimes, when I go out into the real world, I am mistaken for a lowly bumpkin, despite the fact that I (a) wear LH down to the underwears and (b) am an intranets celebrity.

6. Such misperception sometimes causes customer service to be less than worshipful.

7. SUB-WORSHIPFUR CUSTOMER SERVICE MAKE VERY, VERY ANGRY!
WTF? How is this acceptable on here these days?

the pure dumbassness of hermes and you is seriously infuriating. goddamn pretend nouveau riche. what fucking douchebaggery

Normally, H does not do a special order for a brand new client. Forgive me if OP is a VIC.
This is a playground for a bunch of spoiled brats who have no manners.

If you have a policy that breast wallets can't be custom ordered in other colors then you need to make that clear.

Yea. Lucky him.
It takes a long time to get a handbag from H. Mostly in saving the $$ to afford the bag of one's dreams. Fortunately for me, I am able to have a lovely collection and have earned everything in my closet (you guys know about them, right?)
Over and out. Sorry I found my way over here.
Ban me now.

Try Priscilla at the Manhasset store. Manhasset Hermes is one of the few privately owned Hermes stores in the world. She is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with.

It comes with the territory. If is going to dutifully serve as the patron saint of the forvum, then he's got to take all the shit that is heaped on him as a result. It is all in jest, and never ad hominem. I understand that as your loyal pupil and LH torch-bearer, you are tasked with defending his honor, but I would only ask that you lighten the fuck up

I just think it's funny how your refer to Hermes as H. At first I thought you were just using as a shorthand but it now seems more like H is this mystical special thing, that few will ever learn of. -LR

It takes a lot more than that, see below.

Ah, now I remember why MC is a fucking shithole now. Thanks.

This post was way too damn long to read. Especially when it comes to the ignorance of clothing salespeople. I could just imagine if somebody with 20 poasts posted this. He would be castrated.

If that's truly the Hermes business model they will be out of business in 5 years. We aren't talking about a $30,000 custom handbag, but a standard model wallet in a standard color from the catalog. There's very little "special" about that order.
