If everything else looks good, it wouldn't bother me.
Hi dear, tnx for the reply. In SG, we can return/exchange the item to any store. So i did to the store nearby. Although the bag is bought overnight, the store dont want to accept. Reason was because got some scratches in the vachetta which has been there when i bought and i was advised to go to the same store. Lucky another SA assisted and agreed to change with other bag. all neverfull seems got same condition (uneven stiching).

Great. Do you like the exchanged bag?

The stitching above is just as uneven if you look at it more closely. I wouldn't mind either of them.

I was able to score an Alma BB from calling in and it arrived with some things I am thinking are out of the norm. The interior lining on the non-pocket side is bubbling out pretty hugely (I can push it in and it makes like a POP sound and then pops back out), and then the front and back of the bag have some random red stitches visible. Photos below! I’m thinking I need to just send it back for a return or exchange, but I’m especially curious about that lining.

I had almost the exact same situation with mine. Noticed the red stitching along the base of my original bag - submitted for warranty/ it was approved for an exchange. The replacement arrived with the exact same red stitching, plus a crooked handle and bubbling fabric on the interior lining - approved for a second exchange. Was supposed to get the third bag, but it was stolen by someone at UPS and they settled the claim with LV and I just asked for my money back (so no Alma BB in my collection). Hope your exchange process goes more smoothly than mine :sad:

My Alma bb came today and I noticed this tiny hole/puncture on the bottom of the bag. Am I being too picky? The bag is made in the USA so I'm not sure if I'm just trying to find an excuse to return and hope for a MIF...would you return this?

I prefer to make these myself instead of getting it like this from the factory. But honestly this is extremely small, on the bottom, so it wouldn't bother me that much.

I'm not very picky but yes this would bother me. I would exchange for a different one. Good luck!

Hi lovelies, the canvas on my LV agenda has some bubbling or “melted” on its surface, do you come across these issue before? If yes, how can we fix it? I bought it in Feb this year and have been always putting in a dust bag to protect it. However my SA insisted it’s from alcohol/sanitiser that cause these issues and they refused to fix it. I’m tired with their repair policy. They blame everything on hand sanitiser nowadays

Hey all key cles/pouch owners.
I got a friend to purchase a brand new Damier Azur key pouch in Jan 2021. It's still unused and I only managed to get it from them recently due to the covid situation in Australia.
I have one in Monogram and I can see some slight exposure in stitching in the corners (used since Oct 2020) but this DA one to me is on a whole new level..

Is it me just being too critical or do I have grounds to request an exchange?
I've texted a client advisor but not sure what can be done since it wasn't purchased with my account (& we aren't friends anymore) and it was purchased 6 months ago..

Any advice or comments appreciated!!! 2ED8DB2F-4179-4023-BF45-49706F29F12B.jpeg 2ED8DB2F-4179-4023-BF45-49706F29F12B.jpeg 2ED8DB2F-4179-4023-BF45-49706F29F12B.jpeg F8562828-1174-47E6-8B3C-9C80EBC51D2A.jpeg 2DE85477-A463-4C5C-80C2-32F8C33DC966.jpeg

I am looking for a black bag that can hold shades, a small wallet and keys - basically a day bag that I can rotate with my Chanel lamb skin in small size. I like the way the LV wave is built but the leather doesn’t seem to have shine/gloss. Is this normal or did I get a bad piece?

I have the noir new wave bag MM with the Vuitton handle purchased few years ago, my leather is a matte type finish. There is no shine/gloss. I don’t think this leather is supposed to have it from the bags I have seen...the tote bags had the same matte finish.....
