    I'm a longchamp newbie, so I'm hoping to get your help regarding the appropriate size (either 3 or 4) for a custom nylon LP!

    I'm going to be flying to france this summer and I'm hoping to get away with doing carry-on only (small rolling suitcase plus handbag). I already have a small carry-on rolling suitcase that fits in the overhead compartment. I was thinking of getting a custom longchamp nylon le pliage for my personal item/handbag (which I would stash under my seat). I'm wondering whether I should get the size 3 (large) or 4 (x-large). Does anyone here know which size is most comparable to an LV neverfull GM? Basically, I want the biggest bag that can fit under an airline seat (thus qualifying as a personal item rather than carry-on luggage). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
     
  2. Perhaps just compare the bag measurements from longchamp.com to the personal-item requirements listed on your airline's website, keeping in mind whether or not you intend on stuffing the bag full?

  3. I have the same dilemma. I'm also traveling to France this summer & plan to carry just a tote and carry on suitcase. I plan to purchase a Longchamp instead of carrying LV.

    I watched the following Youtubers comparison videos of the Le Pliage and the Neverfull MM. I didn't see any Neverfull GM comparisons. After viewing these videos I think the large Le Pliage will suit my purpose. Good Luck!

  5. I have a size 3 custom LP and it's about the same size as the LLH. If you want to do just hand luggage, I recommend getting the size 4 with LH. It's one of the LC bags that's on my "to buy" shortlist. :smile:
