I have already shown this in the February purchases thread but I like to do reveal threads ;)

Two days ago I went to LV to purchase a bag I bought in march 2016 but had to return due to quality issues. Since I was afraid to experience the same quality issues again I wanted to wait until I was really sure of a different material batch. So almost one year later I got to replace my beloved bag (and also bought a little SLG since it is hard to only buy one thing :P).

Picture of them together (but they won't be worn together since I am the opposite of matching).

Lovely. What quality issue did you experience?
The canvas was extremely easily scratched. I couldn't recall any incident at all and I am very careful and aware of my bags. After using it three times I had plenty of scratches. It became my most delicate bag and I was afraid to use it. A TPFer here told me it wasn't normal at all (also made a thread here), I didn't know how canvas wear since it was my first LV bag. So after she had encouraged me for a while I went back and they of course started with saying there was nothing wrong with the bag but my SA pulled it further and took it in for consultation from France. And while we filled the forms I noticed that the monogram pattern started to wear off in several places (after three uses....) which she was very shocked about. After some weeks I got a call that the canvas had quality issues (my best guess is that some of the coating layers were missing since they make the canvas in several steps) and I got a store credit. So I wanted to be sure none of that canvas was still in production before replacing the bag :smile:
