The recent price comparisons of US vs. Europe Hermes pricing really concern me. The thought of spending an extra $5K on a Birkin here at home really has me in a tizzy. I am really feeling the pain :(
I mean come on, 5K is the cost of a Chanel jumbo??? I really don’t know how H will manage this great a disparity in pricing. Any ideas or thoughts on the subject?

In a devil advocates way, I feel like Hermes can manage the price disparity just fine. Yes, Hermes has great, high quality bags but let’s not forget most of the appeal is the exclusivity. I am not saying we should be happy to suffer higher prices in the US, but knowing your hermes bag has worth by its look and status is more important
NOT happy about the price disparity. Seeing the difference on the chart sets me off even more! Even though I cant benefit from the low european prices here, Im glad Hermes isnt following chanel. Best move is to not alienate the domestic consumer base, and stay true to brand roots. All that being said, still not sure a trip to paris will be on my agenda anytime soon!
