I recently bought my first LV--the horizontal batignolles. (It has yet to take a maiden voyage out of the house, but it will....). I'm contemplating my next purchase--likely a speedy 25. I had been planning on the mono, but am looking for thoughts. I am torn between the mono and the red epi. I will use this as an everyday bag. I've been moving toward the epi because of a little less sag, something a little different and funky, and no concerns about getting the leather dirty or stained. The epi also has two inside pockets and an outside one, compared to the one inside on the mono. Any thoughts? Does anyone think that the color will seem dated in a few years? How does the epi leather hold up? I appreciate any advice on my potential venture in to the speedy gonzales club!!
