As I am still new to LV (and the board in general), I have only been reading the posts regarding the bags and every now and then I see someone mention they have people asking if their bag is real or hear people talk about if their bag is real or not. I now know how you guys feel. I was carrying my Indigo Houston the other day and overheard some people behind me talking. One person obviously kind of knew what they were talking about and named the price of my bag accurately but added "if it is real." Another person was like "no way! I thought it would only cost $300.00" I was not angry considering after hearing that but was rather amused. But I admit reading some of the experiences the other members here had did prepare me for hearing things like that.
