I'm just as big a fan of LV as the next girl/guy.....HOWEVER...what's up with the quality problems lately-maybe it's not lately....maybe it's been this way all along (but I've only read about all the problems here on this forum) So far I've read about bleeding linings (damier speedy), chipping brass hardware, monograms wearing off (MC and Groom), pilling (mini lin) and there's probably more but I can't remember them at this moment.....we all pay 100's and 1000's for these bags and accessories and it makes no sense to me. This hasn't happened to me yet, but some of you must be very especially with these prices that keep going up up up....am I right? These bags should be immaculate!!Can't LV fix these problems with all the money they're making off us? BTW, this won't stop me from buying...just trying to get everyone else's thoughts??
