So I just got a new cosmetic pouch GM. Am I to understand there is no date code (I don’t see one) but I also don’t see any kind of scan code. Except on the product sticker. Is this correct?
There is no QR code. It is an RFID chip sewn between the canvas and the lining.

Hello, I need some advice, I just received this bag, and I was happy to open it, the design is very nice and the stitching is very even, but it has a scratch on the handle of the bag, very small but it was annoying because the leather was peeled off, and the place I circled it was wrinkled, and I had intention to ignore it until I saw a pale blue stain on the strap, and I saw a bumped on one side of the bag, it made me between keep it or return it:sad:. What’s do you think I attached the pictures below. Please excuse my english:smile:.
The stain on the strap alone is a straight return for me. The rest is fine though.

The way you see the stitches looks normal to me as the canvas is "bend over". but on the other hand see how perfectly they match every single pattern to each other! ;)

My brand new mon mono Speedy B30 was delivered on Friday and I've been going over this in my mind since I unboxed it. There's purple (circled in the pic) in the white stripe. I paid good money for this personalized piece, and think it should be perfect out of the box, especially after waiting so long for it. Is this something LV will fix? Should I worry about it?

Since I can hardly see it I wouldn’t be upset, but if you are, take it in immediately to LV, and see what they say.

This is pretty obvious to me, I’d bring it to store and ask what they can do.

Its really up to you and what you can live with. I recently received a Speedy B30 in Mono and there were a few flaws on it (e.g. a glue residue spot under the bandoulière strap, slight vachetta wrinkling). I didn’t think it was worth sending it back to LV for exchange, since the vachetta will age with time anyways. But in your case, the purple dye has clearly rubbed onto the white stripe on the front of your bag. Try to see if you can return or exchange it at LV.

It appears the blue was smeared. Not acceptable at all. Buyers living with issues like this, furthers less quality and craftsmanship. Return and remake. They burn bags at year end.

That's a bummer. I wouldn't be happy with that. Sorry this happened to you as I know these pieces are very special and everyone waits so long. I would personally take it in and show it to them.

Thanks! I contacted LV and sent an email to Care Services, just waiting for their response.

My Nano Speedy arrived today. I am disappointed , one of the handles is super wrinkly. Should I return it? What if I take it to the LV Boutique, will they replace the handle? Really don’t know what to do... please help. 728579EB-9FBA-4034-B3E9-938D3D09895A.jpeg E2114238-E07A-4DD5-923F-2DCA2A60C196.jpeg

Again, the enormous amount of rushed sloppy craftsmanship is shocking. My daughter sent back 3 Graceful bags in 2019, the check pattern matching was off the charts. I recently received 3 different onthego mm that went back due to sloppy interior lining work. I have a GM that is perfection. LV remind customers of the handmade work. This is no excuse, handwork produces fine work or it should. This is a billion if not trillion dollar business, top brand. LV budgets are not placed in the proper place as I have mentioned in other posts. Monies need to be invested back into the quality, vs paying for dreamed up childishness characters and motifs printed on bags. I love the LV brand, traditions, the story, trunks, timelessness and quality of the 1980, 1990’s.

I wanted to treat myself for the new job I got and decided to invest in my first louis vuitton purchase. All three bags that I got (each replacing the first for awful craftsmanship/defects) and the awful customer service turned me off from the brand forever. I will only buy vintage bags and I invested my money into bvlgari. LV is or at least should be losing customers due to their awful quality standards.

Hi everyone. I received my exchange Felicie Pochette today and she looks so much better than my first (it had a big dent). However, there is a slight dent which makes it appear that there’s a mark on the bag. In your opinion, is this normal? I’m really not sure what to think at this point. It is fairly small and I may receive a worse one so don’t know if I should exchange/refund.. thank you in advance for your input. Also does anyone know if I can exchange another time? Or would I have to get a refund?

Here is a pic of the first one I had received with the huge dent:

For that one, I could live with it and just keep it stored with something to fill it out. Over time it may become less obvious. If it really bothers you then you can ask for another one. Canvas isn't stiff so some amount of warping in will happen if it's not filled with something I guess.
