I am planning on purchasing a Damier Speedy 30 as well, and I wanted to know...did you just ASK them if you would have a Made in France one instead of a, say, Made in USA? And they happily obliged?
Hi Lisa,Today I first went to Holt Refrew (I live in Toronto) and they just received a shipment of DS 30. The SA there showed me the purse and it is made in USA. So I went to LV Boutique and the SA showed me first one which is also made in USA. Then I asked whether there has any chance to find one made in France, so the SA went back stock but no one made in USA there. But she showed me the one outside on the shelf and mentioned it has been on shelf for one week. I looked at both of them I still like the one made in France. The reason is I noticed the one made in USA, there has something very rough sticking at the end of handles which is not looking pleasant.
So anytime you can ask SA to find the one made in France if they have in stock.
Thank you so much for clarifying! I thought that for some reason, they would be more reluctant to purposely give someone the ones made in France upon request, as then EVERYONE would be asking for the MIF ones and all all the MIUS ones would be left over.
Are the Made in USA ones generally of a poorer quality and craftsmanship? I think I should start a new thread about this...
