LV Speedy 30 questions...........

  1. Have just recieved mine today and have a question. Is the LV logo supposed to be upside down on one side of the bag? mines like that and I know it is genuine as I bought it from the LV website!
    Alos, I have a small mark on one of the handles. Is there a way to clean the handles without damaging them?
    Thanks in advance for any advice. :flowers:
  2. 1. yes

    2. it depends what kind of mark and the size.
  3. Yes. speedy made from one piece material so you will find upside down LV on the other side of the bag. Small mark?? may be you should exchange it .
    you can search some thread about apple guard cleaner/conditioner to cean your bag in this forum but I personally think you should exchange it especially if it is brand new. You shouldn't settle for something less.
  4. Yes, all speedies (except french co speedies) have upside down LV's on one side.

    Take photos of the mark and we'll try and help you fix it :smile:
  5. The mark is like a smudge, about the size of a pea. I'm not sure if it was actually there when I got it but when I tried to remove it gently with a damp cloth it kust smudged it. Most of it has dried away apart from the original small pea size smudge.
  6. Don't ever put water on vachetta :sad: it stains the leather. Try apple leather conditioner - but never water.
  7. After apply a bit water, the handle will become darker .
  8. Thanks everyone for your advice. :flowers: Do the handles tend to get dirty easily? I'm getting worried now that the handles will be grubby in no time! I cant get appleguard here in the U.K, so can anyone recommend something similar to apply to the handles in order to stop any markings?

    Can you tell it's my first LV bag?!

    Is it just me or does anyone else have this trauma whenever they buy a bag over the phone or via the web? I had to send my spy back twice because of damages and also one of my paddingtons had to go back twice because of damages. I also got a LV key chain money/key holder and the zip was scratched all over. You could barely make out the LV logo. I had to wait 2 weeks for them to change it after it had been returned. It should be here in the next day or so. :rolleyes:
  9. Yes, I have a nervous breakdown every time I buy anything on the Internet! But usually everything is fine. You sound like you've had a bad time of it. Hope your key holder arrives in mint condition!
  10. In the nicest way possible, I am glad I am not the only one who is cursed when it comes to this problem! :graucho:

    Thanks for the tip on appleguard, I am going to try some shops near were I live to see if they can get hold of some for me.
  11. It's not just you...I had issues when I ordered my epi petite noe over the phone. I think I have bad luck ordering stuff via phone !!:rant:
  12. Exactly, it should be perfect for you for that price. :smile:
