I FINALLY got the Manhattan GM! I'm super exicted for I've been eyeing this bag for months!! It's truly a beautiful bag and there's a reason why it's more expensive than most monograms. It's nice and BIG, which is the thing I love most about it. After reading some replys regarding this bag, I got the feeling that most of you prefer the PM. But it's too small, and I don't think the strap on the GM would be such a big deal. You can easily open just half of the bag and remove anything you want. NO need to keep unbuckling. So for those of you who are hesitant about GM, I implore you to rediscover the beauty of this gorgeous, classy and eye-catching LV monogram!
