Bonjour, I discovered this forum for more than a month ago, I red a lot of threads, saw a lot of wonderful pictures and collections bags and I don't know why but I got the feeling that some of you don't carry a lot their bags (vachetta on pictures is like new ; a lot of threads speak about avoiding to spoil vachetta, to avoid it to turn black and dirty...). I'm 44 years old and buy LV from the age of 20. When I buy an LV (it's an expensive brand some people can't afford it) I want to get for my money. The bag must be used, it has to have its own life with some marks, honey vachetta or sometimes dark. Its own life must be engraved in it. I'm not afraid about the bottom of my Mezzo, Piano... I want the brand to show me its quality is at the top and that I don't waste my money (If I let the bag at home to avoid to spoil it, that's for me a waste of money !).
