Please help me decide. I am thinking of a new purchase and both of these have qualities that I think I am looking for, but as we all know, sometimes we don't know what that is until after we get it home! My current LV is a Metis which I absolutely love the look of this bag - but at this point I am wanting something a little lighter to carry, maybe something easier to get things in and out of, and even more so - one that is easier to find things in. I seem to "lose" things inside my Metis for some reason. I don't really carry that much in my bag, so maybe that is why? I have tried for awhile to eliminate the pros and cons, but they are still equally appealing to me. If you have some thoughts, please share. Thank you ahead of time!

I love my Mono Montaigne MM, gorgeous and functional. I'll buy a another one in empreinte if it was not that expensive :sad:

Monogram Montaigne !!!!! This bag is just gorgeous !!!! The interior is divine ! The Monogram Montaigne is one of the best monogram canvas bags LV has made in a long time . This is just my opinion of course . Its roomy and has both functions for shoulder carry and arm . The strap drapes nicely against the bag . Most of the straps LV has come out with do not look right on the bags . More of an afterthought. But not with the Montaigne . Its one of my favorite bags :smile: GL :smile:

I've owned both, and currently just have the Flandrin. LVOE both of them, and will get a Montaigne mm back in my collection someday. The Flandrin holds more, and the interior is deep, so if safety is a factor, your items are not as visible as they are in the Montaigne. The zippered pocket in the Flandrin will hold a zippy wallet if you turn it on end. No vachetta to worry about, and the handles are very comfortable ~ a bit squishy with the leather. And you don't have to worry about them falling into your bag.

The Montaigne is wonderful ~ lighter to carry than the Flandrin, but not as big. The zippered pocket is good for your phone and keys, but not much else. A great advantage with the mono version is that the strap attaches end to end, unlike the emp. version and the Flandrin, where it hooks at the handles, and twists a bit on the shoulder. But not much.

Honestly, either bag you pick is a winner. There is quite a price difference between the mono Montaigne and the Flandrin, and for the money, I think the Flandrin is underpriced for Vuitton. I wish it had brass feet. :sad: I think the Flandrin is a bit more dressy, but I use it as an every day bag, sweats and all~!

I would chose Flandrin if you don't want any vachetta. I love my Montaigne but the flandrin catches my eye whenever I see it - something about black (red is a beauty too) on mono is so beautiful.
