Yes, the strap comes off and you can add different straps if you'd like but the hardware is huge on it so not all straps will fit of course. In fact, most wont, but my vachetta keepall strap does.Great bag! Is it as big, or bigger than the mc speedy? Can the chain/strap be detached?
The bleeding actually made the canvas pink from the red interior and I believe that was a problem that was fixed in later models of LV white multicolore after the original bags made in 2003-04 bled. These should be fine. I say go for it! No worries with black MC anyway- just the white.OMG! I am drooling!I love this bag but I have heard that the MC canvas can become yellow due to bleeding?? I hope LV will make it available in the classic monogram too! The white looks awesome though!
