Questions about LV koala bracelet :)

  1. *sigh* :girlsigh: Now I am wanting these!!! when will it stop. haha. It's matt's and e-pinpin's faults with their rockin bracelet pics. hehehe.;)

    questions are as follows:

    1. Will they last a long time in great condition? Especially the S-lock, will it
    tarnish fast just like the padlocks that come with the speedies???

    2. What is the difference between the nomade and suhali leather?

    3. For the multicolore ones, do they chip?:s

    4. Lastly, will they fit small small wrists?:confused1:


    Thanks in advance gals!!!!
     
  2. :blink: :whistle:
     
  3. 1. S-lock will still scratch and won't tarnish as much (depends how you wear it)
    2. Nomade is treated cowhide leather and Suhali is high quality goat skin.
    3. MC are just like the regular MC and will be subject to wear and tear.
    4. One size only. Smallest wrist may wear on the last punch hole.

    :flowers:

  8. Very nice Juan!

    1. The S lock will tarnish in time but probably not as fast, unless you plan on wearing it every day. You can polish it up though.

    2. Nomade- cowhide Suhali-goatskin

    3. Multicolore shouldn't chip TOO fast, but it's definitely possible due to the process in which the symbols are added onto the canvas. If you don't scrape it against anything or wear it EVERY day, it should be fine.

    4. Agreed with Antonio- there are two different sizes, but they're really adjustable so you can fit a fairly wide variety of wrist sizes.
     
  9. ^^follow-up q, how do you polish it up? :smile:

    thanks so much john and Lvbabydoll!
     
  10. Whoops, I knew I forgot something lol. You can use a brass polisher like Brasso to polish them up. I know a lot of people on this board use it to polish the locks from their Speedys :smile:
     
  11. thank you!!!! so i guess they are brass.. heehee!
     
  12. Lol yup..they're gold plated brass. But they plated pretty well so you shouldn't notice any tarnishing for a few years.
     
  13. the lock of my speedy tarnished in like 6 months... :sad:
     
  14. First of all....i'm sorry it's my fault!!! haha i really do like LV leather bracelets!!!

    1. Will they last a long time in great condition? Especially the S-lock, will it
    tarnish fast just like the padlocks that come with the speedies???
    - suhali will sure last cuz the s-lock on my mc speedy looks just great after 3 years of abuse!! that's why i decided to get the bracelet too

    2. What is the difference between the nomade and suhali leather?
    - nomade is subjuct to patina while it'll never happen with suhali which is goat skin

    3. For the multicolore ones, do they chip?:s
    - not likely, MC has higher quality hardware comparing to mono

    4. Lastly, will they fit small small wrists?:confused1:
    - they actually come in different sizes, i'm not sure about koala tho, but the one i tried on definitely fits on small wrists

    so get one soon and join the club!!! woohoo!!! :smile:
     
  15. Yeah those are just a little different. The locks seem to tarnish faster because they're exposed to the elements more, whereas the bracelets are only worn for a short period of time. Plus, there is less brass on them then there are on the actual bags.
