Hi all

I just purchased a new monogram mini pochette from LV store and in my haste, I didn't realize the zip was tarnished or looks vintage.

Is this normal??

Also the zip and the chain seemed To be made of a different material.

I am now wondering if I should make a trip to the store to exchange.

It appears to look normal. LV's gold hardware is a joke to be honest. The polished brass layer is thin especially on SLG's and will chip away eventually. It already looks like the gold is barely on and that's normal.

Honestly it looks ok to me, I agree with LVBastlle the LV gold hardware isnt all that great to begin with. I would personally keep it but if it really bothers you I recommend taking it in for a second opinion from the SA.

I must agree, the quality and shine isn't as good as it used to be with LV.

Mine looks the same. They don`t use the shiny zippers for the Mini Pochette.
It is a bit flimsy I have to say.

thanks everyone! It's my first LV without a shiny zipper so I thought there was something wrong.
