Well kudos to LV. I called them a couple weeks ago to complain that my Mandarin Speedy smells like cat pee (serious!). I spoke with a lovely woman and we've been talking back and forth for the ever since. She did confirm that there was a problem with the dye which had a reaction with the canvas/leather making it smell like ... cat pee (yet they still sold them!!). Anyway, to make a long story short, she talked to the manager at my local LV and had another mandarin speedy sent in which arrived today. And.... the manager told her - don't bother - it smells even worse! So, now what. They are letting me exchange it for whatever I like (same price of course). What other Epi bags are truly fab for approx. the same price and what color?? Black?Red?Myrtille? Help!!!
