I'll start... I'm one that loves the patina on Louis Vuitton Products, not the dirty look, but the "mature" well taken care of look if you know I mean? I love the way Azur looks with darkened leather, but I'm almost impatient to see it five years from now when it will look killer Kool!!! I think it will look like the classic bags of fifty years ago...probably why I love the look of Keepalls and Speedys that have been around awhile...when it's aged... When it's New and sparkly it almost looks fake...like the millions of fakes out there, but one thing about fakes...they haven't figured out how to fake the patina and nothing looks better than a well loved LV with a great glow!
