Hermes Steve is a very beautiful and stylish purse that is designed to be worn on the shoulder as it is a messenger bag. This bag is made out of bull calfskin leather and the silver hardware completes perfectly the superb design of this bag. The strap of the purse is adjustable and it can fit every man that wishes to wear one and offers him comfort and versatility. To complete the look and to make this model very practical the creator of this bag used numerous pockets on the inside and outside of the purse.
Hermes decided that it is not enough to adjust the strap of the bag so it can fit the owner, so he actually created the Hermes Steve Besace in three sizes, 25, 35 and 38 centimeters. The smallest one, the 25 centimeters one is a also called the Steve “Caporal”. The medium one is most common model and also it is the most replicated one. The large one was created to fit very tall men. The a Hermes Steve Besace replica I am going to review today is a medium size and it measures 35 centimeters, exactly like the genuine one.
The replica manufacturer used for this Steve Besace replica the same kind of tough leather like the original bag has, it is indeed sturdy and firm. But in the same time is feels very soft and smooth when you touch it. On the inside this bag looks very similar to the original bag, the color and the lining of the leather are the same, the only thing that is different is the texture of the material. It is plane and it has some lines that are hardly noticeable. Unfortunately the color shades are not the same, it is a different brown from the original bag and this is pretty annoying. But what can I say, I can live with that.
As for all the bags I bought from this Company I can say the craftsmanship is absolutely impeccable. The white stitches are even, there are no spaces between them. There are no stains or any smudges or discolorations on the leather. All the cuts and finishing are perfect and there no imperfections at all. It is really flawless.
Created to adapt to a busy man needs during a hard day, this Steve Besace replica, exactly like the original version has three compartments and a zipper pocket inside it.
Another difference between my replica Steve Besace and the original bag is the “HERMES PARIS MADE IN FRANCE” logo. You can find this authenticity marking under the flap cover of the purse. On the original bag this is written in gold but on my replica the logo is silver. But it is unnoticeable because it is under the flap.
For the hardware of this Steve Besace replica the manufacturer used stainless steel, and I allow myself to say that it is not the best choice as it is not at all as shiny and beautiful as the silver and platinum used for the original bag. It really doesn’t look as good as I expected it to. But it is a replica and it doesn’t cost a fortune at all.
The Hermes Steve Besace bag with its ultra-simple shape and design cannot pass without notice. It features a balanced combination of luxurious and casual lines, making it the ultimate men purse. Precisely because it is a frivolous and splendid bag, I had to see if it can be replicated successfully.
