Awhile back, I posted comparison pics of 2 mono pochette accessories (one made in Spain and one in USA, both relatively new). They were obviously different in that one was shinier, less textured, and very slightly lighter in color. However, aside from those superficial differences, the quality was about the same... the material's "thickness" was equal. Well, I just bought a Made in France Speedy 30 from autheticlvlady on eBay (so i feel comfortable its authentic, i think). It's 5 years old but there is a HUGE difference in the canvas on that bag compared to my almost new Made in USA Speedy 25. The canvas on the old speedy 30 is much thicker (enough of a difference so my sister, who never notices anything, noticed). It also feels not as smooth and more tacky/ for lack of a better word, sticky. It is much stiffer and more sag/wrinkle resistant and it seems like it would be able to withstand a hard beating. Does anyone else who has an older LV notice this difference in canvas in comparison to newer bags?
