As a guy, I find the practice of overpriced handbags to be baffling.

I think the term “overpriced” should be used carefully. Clearly this Birkin is crazy-pants expensive, but when isolated down to it’s materials (gold hardware, 10 carats of highest clarity diamonds, crocodile leather) plus the time of the artisans that made it, I think it probably is a fair cost. These types of bags are all stitched by hand as well. I’m not saying I agree with spending this amount of money on something like this, but I’ve watched videos before of the leather-workers and metal smiths making these bags and it’s very amazing from a craftsmanship perspective.
