Ask Me A Question | Is This A Shoulder Birkin?
Dear My Birkin Blog,
I saw this bag online and wasn't sure what this is. Is it a shoulder Birkin? Because it looks taller than a shoulder Birkin.
If you have an answer for it, please let me know.
Thanks. Happy New Year.

Thanks for writing. This is a Birkin 40 CM with longer handles. Some customers said it wasn't convenient that a regular Birkin can't be carried on shoulder. HERMES made this model: 40 CM Birkin with longer handles. It is very limited.
The measurements are exactly like a regular 40 CM just with longer handles. HERMES made this prior to the Shoulder Birkin which was introduced in 2004. This model then inspired Shoulder Birkin, but this is not a shoulder Birkin.
Yes, this is an authentic Birkin Bag. HERMES doesn't make this anymore. They take orders only.
Happy New Year,
