Is it true that if Hermes offers you one of the sought after bags, and they bring it over from the back, and you don’t buy it then and there, you’re blacklisted on the spot?

The more I hear about Hermès and how they conduct business to elevate their exclusivity, the more I’m turned off.

^ 1000%. Why pay more and stress about playing the game when you can buy secondhand? It takes hunting but seems much easier than the Hermes song and dance

No, you’re not “blacklisted” per say. But unless you have a very good relationship with your SA and a very solid purchase history, the SA might get annoyed (since they gotta present your case to the manager to even offer you the bag in the first place) and it will take a while until you get your next offer. With that being said, if you’re very specific about the size/leather/color/hardware, tell your SA the exact combination you want to avoid this type of scenario. Otherwise, if you can afford and plan to have multiple Birkins and Kellies, you should just take it if it’s a nice color.

Exactly! Count me out of their little marketing games…I’ll put my money elsewhere.

Fun fact there’s actually no such thing as a “waitlist”. If you take apart the Hermes physical store or inspect their storage hidden behind all those walls you will find a dozen birkins/kelly in classic or exotic colors. It’s a matter of IF they are willing to sell
