As a lover of handbags, I often find myself scouring the internet for new bags and coveted designs of the brands of Hermes such as Kelly, Birkin, and Constance. Unfortunately, this means I’ve also spent more than I would like to admit on originals.Considering I only buy the smaller versions, I quickly found that these bags were getting harder to find and I struggled to get more than two over the course of a year.
If we look at the Hermes Birkin 30 Bag in Togo, the authentic model would set you back nearly $11,000 USD. Even if you do have this money to splash, the next problem comes with stock which means you’ll need to add your name to an extensive waiting list. If you wait months (or more than a year) and they finally reach out to you, another problem can arise with colors.
In the past, I turned my nose when people mentioned replica handbags so I had never owned one before I heard people talking about the replica Hermes scene. After this piqued my interest, I opened the laptop and did some research. Initially, I was disappointed since they all seemed to have some flaws; the photos weren’t impressive at all (this was a red flag for the product itself!).
With this in mind, I thought my opinion of many years had been proven right and there’re no good replicas. Suddenly, and almost by accident, I found CB and saw what I would call ‘high-end fakes’(Price more than $2000+). At first, I thought it was too good to be true because the photos were of a really good quality. Just to get the ball rolling, I emailed the company to ask if they had products that weren’t on the website, and they replied quickly with photos of exactly what I needed.
As I looked some more, I became less and less nervous so decided to take a chance. I started with a Birkin and have followed up with many orders since. Not only do I save money, they also offer plenty of colors which means I don’t have to wait forever and a day just to get my hands on a bag that isn’t even the right color. I’ve broken down the details and offered a comparison below:
CB vs Hermes
Quality – First and foremost, the quality is something that surprised me because the leather is near enough the same. After laying my replica and originals side by side, there was very little difference. They use a high-grade leather, it’s supple, and smells just like the real thing. Inside, grained Chèvre leather is utilized for the lining and only industry experts will spot any differences.
All things considered, the similarity is uncanny; even the Togo leather has the right texture (I honestly believe it’s from the same tannery as Hermes uses) and the handle is as sturdy. Just a quick note on durability, I’ve been using my replica for around eight months and its shape is as strong as ever. Everything is shining, like the day it came, and there are no signs of wear.
Cost – How significant is the saving? Well, let’s just say you can buy at least four CB bags for the price you would pay for an original. If you’re someone who likes to buy bags regularly, this can be a huge saving (especially considering the level of quality, as we’ve already discussed). With the replica websites I found initially, they were more expensive and the photos were poor. Therefore, the value for money compared to other replica websites is incredible.
Accuracy – This is the big one, right? The last thing you want is to buy a bag only to find they’ve missed a key feature from the original. For me, it’s easy to see the manufacturers took their time studying the original; the replica has everything you would expect including the raincoat, padlock with keys, dust bag, and more. What’s more, the measurements and packaging are just like the original (with the signature orange box, ribbon, and tissue).
On the box, the logo was the same, the padlock has its own little bag, and the numbers on the lock is the same number found on the keys. On the dust bag, it has a small Hermes logo in a dark brown color and this is positioned and written correctly. Elsewhere, the Hermes logo is positioned correctly on the hardware and the stamp is something CB has mastered on the front. With other manufacturers, the stamp can be embossed into the leather(red flag for fakes) but CB has avoided this mistake.
Furthermore, I should note the lack of double stitching which gives the homemade effect; this is true for the stitches on the inside too. Inside the bag, there are two pockets with one at the back with a zipper and one in the front. The handle to this zip is always parallel with the zip and the H symbol has been engraved as normal. The Hermes product code can be found along with the artisan’s ID on the inner right corner.
If you thought I was joking about detail before, I’m sure you don’t now!
Customer Service – Finally, I should also note their customer service since they answered my email so quickly. If you want a bag that isn’t listed, just get in touch and they’ll do their best to help – they can even share some limited edition photos. From the point of purchase, they’ll keep you updated on the order’s progress and a tracking number will even allow you to see your package in motion.
In case you haven’t guessed, I love CB and could probably talk about them all day. Rather than continuing, I recommend visiting their website, CB sells the best Hermes replica bags, taking a look around, and asking them any questions you have. If you’re looking for high-end replicas this year, you won’t find any better!
