Well if you truly like the brand don't be put off because everyone is carrying it. If that the case I will not buy Chanel too because where I live I see Chanel as often as LV Btw, canvas might be the common case but have you counted how many carrying Mahina line or SC? Or if you have extra $$$ try order your own haute maroquinerie LV ie made to order high end luxury leather. I believe they are using same quality leather as Hermes and to cater some clients. Mind you the price quite steep and as low as $8000. But in any case if the LV itself as the brand make you sad because many carrying it (which is canvas monogram or DE) well it is your choice. Be happy with it.
