I just need a sanity check. The glazing on the empreinte cles I purchased in March has started to peel. Is this substantial enough that LV should repair or exchange without protest? ImageUploadedByPurseForum1463201567.207246.jpg

Is that the Denim? I actually saw one with a similar problem (not as bad) as yours at the store a few weeks ago and decided against it. The SA kept on insisting that it was normal, but I didn't feel comfortable taking it home so I went to another store and got a different one instead. I'd definitely take it back to LV and see what they say... Good luck!

That needs to be repaired as soon as possible; it will only get worse with time and LV often offers repairs free of charge within a year of purchase providing the item wasn't abused (obviously this isn't the case with you but you know what I mean). If the item is still in stock and/or has a history of issues then the store might offer a replacement, but it's entirely at the discretion of the SA/manager so nothing's guaranteed.

Just wanted to ask: Is ur embossing on the bottom and top part of the wallet fainter than other areas? Is it suppose To be like that because the leather stretches there and had to fold over?

It's so interesting that you asked about this because I had just noticed the other day that the embossing on the top part of my Key Pouch is slightly fainter. I've only had this piece for about a month and it still smells/feels new. I think it probably came like this, but I'm not 100% sure. It seems normal to me and I wouldn't worry too much about it. Are you thinking of getting one? I must say this is becoming one of my favorite SLGs and it's totally worth the $$. [emoji6] HTH.

Thanks for your input. It helps a lot. Yes I'm thinking of getting one. Either denim or poppy but I'm leaning more towards denim because blue is my favourite colour. I love the beautiful texture and feel of the leather and the embossing makes it so elegant and unique. It is so gorgeous. I want a mini or small wallet as it's easier to carry things and the Sarah and Emilie style wallets are too big. I will go into the boutique this weekend and have another look. But from what you're saying, it seems to be ok. I have asked others and they say it depends. Sometime faint, sometimes well embossed. That's for you info. Helps me a lot. By the way, you're denim is beauitful. Exactly what I had hoped for, so I think you got me sold

You're welcome! Glad to help. It's a great piece and you won't regret it! [emoji4]
