I emailed LV yesterday to ask if there would be an increase and here is the response I received. I am disgusted with them right now. "We would like to thank you for your visit on our web site and your interest in Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton does expect a price increase to take place effective November 1st, 2006. In Louis Vuitton's efforts to continue producing products of exceptional quality and savoir faire, it is sometimes necessary to initiate price changes based on increasing costs for energy, employment of skilled artisans, and various other factors including, but not limited to exchange rate (Louis Vuitton is based in Paris, and thus based on the Euro); customs, duties and import taxes. We hope you will enjoy the uncompromised beauty of your final finished product. We are looking forward to your next visit on our web site, Louis Vuitton: luxury leather luggage, French fashion designer. Best regards, Sarah Sinclair - LOUIS VUITTON email@example.com www.louisvuitton.com" Anyone else that is disgusted and frustated that LV has multiple price increases a year should complain to LV directly IMHO. There is an email link above. It will probably not stop this Nov 1st increase but MAYBE they will rethink their policy of frequent increases. I feel its so disrepectful of their customers so I don't know if I will continue to be a customer of theirs.
