My friend received a Hermes bracelet as a gift. Very thin band of leather with a tiny silver knob on the end which wraps around the wrist. $300 price tag.

Hermes leather stuff lasts forever. They started as a saddle company making very high end saddles, and actually they still make them and they've always been known for the quality of their leather and leatherwork. So no it's not cheap, however it'll last for freaking ever. There are women today who carry their grandmother's Hermes purses and handbags and they look like they were just bought.

There was a time, around 2000-2005 I'd say, near the Annapolis/Ft. Meade areas, when one of these was the very height in "I work in tech at some government building and make too much money, so I have no taste but a desire to impress somebody, so I'm wearing this belt over my stonewashed Lee jeans with my striped Chaps polo tucked in" fashion. And it wasn't a good look. Those guys often drove Mitsubishi Eclipses, too, because I guess chick cars meant sex with chicks?

I inherited a 40 something year old Hermes bag that does in fact look and feel better than anything new from Coach, Vuitton etc etc. The stitching alone is a work of artisan craftsmanship. Would I spend ACTUAL cash to buy this? No...not a lunatic. Do I use this purse? Hell yes - it's gorgeous.
