vintage hermes jige portfolio

8th june 2008 15:08 edit: i bought it! i decided to get it because:

- i played good samaritan and last night i stayed with a girl who collapsed by the side of the street because she had a panic/asthma attack. i waited till she was slightly better and walked her for a distance before heading off

- i played fillial son and said i will contribute half of my mum's air ticket to japan

- this vintage portfolio is made in the year i was born

- i will actually use it often as it is practical (i can't carry a luggage bag to work can i?!)

- life is short, what the heck.

my only grumble: no dustbag nor box. but i can live with it.

so exciting!!!!!

-----------------------------------------

i stayed home to avoid the shops, but online shopping is evil. i found this vintage hermes jige pouchette from a trusted online seller. it's dark blue marine in box calf leather. measures 13.3"(34cm) x 10.3"(26.5cm) x 1.2"(3cm). it shows signs of a little wear, but still in fantastic pristine condition. i really like it, and it's perfect for work as i can throw in my ipod, wallet, coin pouch, key pouch, staff pass, magazine and scarf. best of all, it's going for US$773.

oh dear i really really like it. but there are too many things i want to buy right now. it's 2:24am now, i shall sleep over it. oh dear, should i or should i not?

  2. but none of the things i wanted to buy is on sale anyway, like the monogramouflage keepall, goyard majordome, ysl f/w 08 coat.

    i can do without the paint splattered shoes or the dollar bill wallet

    dilemmmma. there's another jige pouch in red in a slightly better condition, they're selling it for US$1500!

    dilemmmmma!

  4. i am currently trolling TPF for info etc
    based on the stamp on the inside of the pouch, this was made in the year i was born. i am really exciting!

    am also reading on how to restore and waterproof box calf leather.

    i am very tempted...

    trolling ebay now...
