I have a question about LV's lifetime warranty. My Petit Noé is pretty used...the straps are absolutely patina-ed to DEATH...it's SO dark brown and the leather has curled up on the edges and it's just so worn. and the drawstring is patina-ed to death as well. BUT the damn strap won't BREAK! i was wondering if i could bring my bag anyway and get the straps replaced or something? because they are bordering on offensive...haha.
