3 Things To Consider When Investing In A Birkin Bag

Owning your very own Hermes Birkin bag can be an incredibly powerful status symbol, while simultaneously expressing your personal style. However, because Birkin bags can be very expensive, it is important to pay attention to the right things before making your purchase. Here are three things to think about carefully before investing in a Birkin bag. 

1. Authenticity While authentic Birkin bags can be worth tens of thousands of dollars, knock-offs can be completely worthless on the auction market. Before you invest in a Birkin bag, check for the signs of authenticity. 

First and foremost, you should check your bag for an authenticity card. If there is one present, it is almost certainly a fake. True Birkin bags have never been accompanied by a card, and never will. You should also look for the signs of high-end craftsmanship. Stitching should be completely perfect and level, and any stitches that are out of place should be an immediate red flag. The logo plate should read "Hermes Paris Made in France," instead of anything else, including simply "Hermes." 

2. Style Another important thing to consider before you invest in a Birkin bag is the style of the purse. While Birkins only have one profile shape, you should think about the color and pattern of the material to ensure that you will be able to use it without feeling self-conscious. 

Look for a bag that is a neutral color for your personal wardrobe palette, and that offers the appropriate pop of interest. If you are looking for a show-stopper, consider a bright bag, such as an orange or red purse. On the other hand, black or saddle brown are great colors that mesh well with most wardrobes. 

3. Size Carefully consider what you carry in your purse on a daily basis to make sure you invest in the right size of bag. Look for a purse that allows you to carry everything you need to, without having to choose between different essential items. If possible, try to place your phone into the purse pocket in the shop, so you can make sure everything fits. 

After you have brought your new Birkin bag home from the store, take great care of it by always keeping it in the dust bag it came with, and storing it in a way that doesn't bend the handles or encroach on the sides of the bag. When you are out with the bag, keep it close by your side. Anytime you spot damage on your bag, have the damages repaired quickly to prevent further issues.
