Hi LV friends!

I got this pretty little 6 key beauty a few days ago, she still has that new yummy smell :biggrin::heart:
I am giving my 10 year old DE cles a break, after using it for my keys and wallet non stop daily. I was debating getting a new one but went with the 6 key instead and so far I'm loving it.
My cles is in rough shape lol. I am wondering if my wear on it is normal for its age, anyone else have an old cles? I'd love to see some pics :smile:

My 2008 monogram clés is looking worn, but not nearly as badly worn as yours because it was only in constant use for about five years. The monogram is faded and wearing off at the high points of the "grain" and the hardware is showing normal wear. The stitching is still completely intact, the edge is only slightly bowed, and nothing egregious immediately hits the eye.

Mine is more than 7 years old, faded and old but I still love it and use it every single day. A few days ago I just purchased 6 key rings. Comparing the canvas print, the key pouch looks faded, hardware less shiny and beaten up.

Both pieces are more than 25 years old. Even though I have newer Vuitton slg these are two of my favorite items.
Both are holding up very nicely!! Has the glazing from the 6 key holder given you any issue? I heard the new ones peel very quickly.
