Hermes vs. less pricey luxury brands for leather
March 6, 2011 11:56 AM Subscribe
Is there any real way a Hermes leather bag is ‘better’ than your average Gucci/LV/Cartier/etc. bag? I mean once you’re in “Handmade in Europe by a company that’s been around since before 1930″ territory it’s all the same right? Trying to figure out whether to save up (a while!) for the big H or forget it and go for the others.

maybe it's an unanswerable question because all of these have inflated prices and trade on brand value so it's just about how far you're willing to play into that game..? but figured I'd check with the knowledgeable folk in here as part of my decision making process.
