Same, I’m not really into the canvas. My only canvas bag is my rainy day bag, the speedy b in DEI agree with PP that outside TPF, most people don't even check date codes. And I don't think it will be long before these chips are hacked and are found in fake bags or black-market scanners are out there, so I don't think it will have much effect.
I guess I'm in the minority in that I am not a fan of LV canvas bags . I don't mind the prints in SLGs, but for bags, they are too loud for me. I do think LVs leather bags are gaining in popularity vs. years ago (and their resale value seems to have increased as well). Probably largely due to LVs marketing push, but also I think many LV lovers are looking for some variety from the brand. How many DA, DE and Mono bags can you have before they all sort of look the same?
