Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the quality and resale value of LV bags made in France and those made in USA?

I'm looking to buy a Denim Neo Speedy. I just returned one I bought to elux because of defects! :sad: It was made in the USA.

The main fabric of the bag was sewn crooked so the design gradually slanted. It was subtle but for $ 1400.00 it was noticeable! The side of the bag bugled out with excess fabric at the bottom. Also the bag was clearly a return because the inner gift box had stains all over the lid and there was a mark on the leather on the front of the bag. I was really annoyed that I paid full price for this bag and the quality control was so bad. They did take it right back and are crediting me the return shipping. So at least I wasn't stuck with it.

There's no differences. The popular styles are all made in USA. It takes too much time and money to make and ship them overseas.

possibly the returned bag was fake? it seems odd that that many things wrong with the bag could get past qualtiy control at LV

I'm confused. I thought the big deal with lv is its perfect craftsmenship and that no flawed ones ever circulated. I should be getting my bag from eLux today and am suddenly worried. This wasn't the first 'flawed bag from eLux' post. What gives? (Maybe this should be a seperate thread...sorry op...not trying to barge in.)

i just got my 1st LV and its made in USA (well the lock was made in france) i read some threads and posts that some people are particular with where their bags are made, does it matter? or is it just purely personal preference?

purely personal preference :yes:
This question is asked a lot, so it seems as many members pay attention to this. Personally, I really don't care. BUT except for one, all my LV's are made in France... maybe that's why I'm not too crazy for a "real" french one.

Its purely personal preference. All the bags are exactly the same quality and it does not matter where it is made. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was told that there are 2 factories in France, one in the US, and one in Spain. In this case, made in USA might actually be rarer than Made in France :yes:
