    Good find. Less flip flop guy, more this. Although her shoes makes her legs look a little chunky.

    What? [​IMG]

    i found the thread she came from

    http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/st...ce-649950.html

    lol at h experience. herpes? heroine?


    It's somewhat amusing how various other forums read SF and discuss the threads here.

    Also interesting to note the difference in attitude between the male opinions here (universally negative against Hermes) and those at PurseForum.

    wow, this thread really delivered! the x-post over to purseforum sounds like the women over there are a bunch of arrogant, hoodrat hoochies... 1000 bucks says 99% of those women have been single their whole lives and will never find a man because they are way too superficial and pretentious. they must be living on another planet.

    the story is [​IMG]

    From my personal experience with Hermes: Once I phoned they store in London checking the availability and price for a leather watch strap. I was told that the profile SA is busy at the moment and was asked for my mob. number. In a couple of hours I received a call from a very polite gentleman who availed my inquiry. The strap was only 200 pounds but both London and Edinburgh (which I phoned too) stores provided excellent customer services.

    She comes in here like someone's batshit crazy aunt, calls one of our esteemed colleagues a jerk in her first post, then has the petit-bourgeois temerity to call us ill-mannered!

    Oh, 4chan, hear our prayers!

    OMG i think i sat next to this woman on a SFO to JFK redeye flight. she was on the cellphone with someone (probably family member who was going to pick her up) and actually berated the person on the other end of the line for pronouncing "Hermes" wrong (I guess she was going to buy a bag in duty free). it was a redeye and I slept in but was awoken by the scent smelly feet... hers! still very pretty though... please let it be her.. LOL
    Well, okay, now maybe there IS something worth oggling over there... [​IMG]

    This set me thinking. I wonder how many SFers have been sitting in a business class lounge at a major airport with frequenters of PF, FNB, AAAC and any of the other myriad clothing forums. When you think about it our little habit is not a cheap one and it stands to reason that as a result many of our members (the community has 61,000+ registered members) are in the kind of demographic where this is probable. On a transatlantic flight there are what 12 seats in business class? Not many here are wealthy enough to spend $15,000 for first class, but $5,000 for business seams reasonable. About half an A&S suit in fact. And about the price of the average post in the Watch Porn thread. So it seems rather likely that the guy you just held the door for is quite probably the guy you laugh at on AAAC. And that cute girl who just ordered a Bloody Mary may well be the one mocking you at PF.

    I also wonder what the SA's response would have been to the guy who wanted to make a wallet out of his outer flesh?

    lol she thinks we're jealous of her.

    we couldn't give a shit how many birkins you have. i personally think its disgusting and hypocritical how you flaunt your new money in rather trivial ways just because it's H. you're only justifying the douchebaggery of H because your beloved H is what gives your new money its status.

    bourgeoisie have no taste. an H on your belt or hermes printed on your bag doesn't give you class or style just the image of it to the plebs


    how is this different from what SF espouses? [​IMG]

    The Birkin has minimal to no logo. The craftsmanship is without a doubt superb if not unrivalled. It's expensive. The user gets much satisfaction.

    All this can be applied to, for instance...

    -Capelli tie
    -Rubinacci suits
    -Charvet shirts
    -JL or EG shoes


    you know, ........all those things SF goes ga-ga over.

    Just goes to show, at least that Styleforum does not have a monopoly on rude, combative behavior.
    At least we generally wait until someone comes here to belittle and insult them. We don't seek them out and anonymously attack them. [​IMG]

    The difference is that, if you can afford it, you can 'just walk in' to EG and order a pair of bespoke shoes. They don't make you buy 20 pairs of ready to wear to 'build up a relationship' first.

    do you see honest discussion about quality of hermes on purseforum. they just care that it's the birkin bag that the shitty magazines go gaga over. it's not an appreciation of the craftmanship but the name. the craftmanship is just an extra benefit. who the fuck knows about capelli ties and rubinacci suits? we've had this discussions millions of times and i'm tired of it. i'm disgusted with the pretentiousness of the bag lady. i could care less how illogical it is in comparison to sf. i dont frequent here that much but so far i havent heard brand whoring over rubinacci simply because of the name. also ditto on above post

    didn't read this thread in its entirety so Inot sure what its been derailed to, but man, it boggles my mind how terrible some sales folks are at selling their own goods. This is a typical story that I encounter nearly every time I go into a high end boutique. I'm not a bespoke customer paygrade yet, but I can't wait to get there just so I can deal with some knowlegable people. Its like...dude/dudette, your one and only duty during work hours is to be knowledgeable enough about a teeny tiny catalog of luxury goods so you can actually enticew your customer into buiying somethign from you.

    It's accounts like Foo's that once again raises the question of what luxury means. Yes, you get a good product when you walk out the door, exquisite, even. However, if you are arbitrarily given poor service and thus creating a poor experience, then where does true luxury stop and just a big scam begins? But Foo's experience carries it even further - he dealt with hubristic incompetence, which really breaks down the facade of luxury to show the scam that lies underneath.

    The OP is much more patient than I am.

    Still like the gucci shoe/teger thread better.
