Hello everyone! I'm new to tPF and have been browsing the LV section while I await my first Louis... a mono Ellipse PM from let-trade. It hasn't even arrived and I'm already coveting my next piece-hopefully something in pomme vernis! I'm curious how many years of use you get out of your average LV bag. I'm assuming lines like the Epi last longer because they do not have the vachetta handles? I'm sure it also depends on the level of patina you prefer (or can stand to live with!) on your vachetta bags. So, how many years do you usually rock a bag before it becomes too worn for use?
