Hey guys, just thought I'd post about my first 2 LV purchases (beyond a couple very simple accessories) that I purchased within the last couple of weeks. As a straight male, I've always been a little turned off by the monogram print (even the Macassar), but fell in love with Damier Graphite from the day it came out. I'd been holding off for no real reason until a few weeks ago when I saw a guy with a keepall in DG on a flight from NYC to Atlanta, and immediately realized I had to buy one! Anyways, I got the keepall 55 in DG (Bandoulière), but felt like I was still missing something from the equation. I spent about a week and a half thinking it over, and after searching through the LV website, I decided I needed a day bag to go with it. So anyways, I just got back from the boutique earlier today......... WITH A NEW MICK GM!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd been wanting to buy a day bag to go with my Keepall 55 in Damier Graphite, but wasn't sure on whether or not I should go for it until today. I awoke and just kind of decided that I should at least "take a look" at what the store had to offer (you all know how that one goes....LOL). Once there I tried on both the MM and the GM, and found that the MM was a bit small for me. While it does hold A4 size folders and fit my 13" Macbook Air, the bag was easily dominated by just a small amount of content, and I figured the GM would be more realistic to use in a practical sense. I absolutely love the zipper-closure top, and went for the Mick instead of the Daniel GM because of lack of a flap. I also love the zippers & how they're different on each side of the bag. They provide a way to almost "convert" the look and feel of the bag from more traditional with the horizontal zip to more modern & "rocker-esque" with the diagonal, so you're not just stuck with one look. The interior is spacious and has 4 wallet-sized compartments for your necessities, as well as some pen holders and a D-clip for keys and accessories. I'll post some pics either tonight or tomorrow of the bag in greater detail. Now, if only I can find a way to get the leather tabs at the base of the straps heat-stamped with my initials...... Here are some photos of the new Mick! - I feel like I shouldn't even post a pic of the keepall since so many on the forum already have, but I'd be happy to do so if requested.

I like that it doesn't sag with smaller quantities of contents and that it keeps it's shape while still being able to mold / adapt to your body. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BAG TO ANYBODY!!!!! Thanks!
