we've all heard the story before. someone gets a new speedy loves it to death. uses it for a month and the handles start peeling. well it happened to me too!

only i used mine about 3 weeks. took it back to the store and my SA couldn't be more helpful to exchange it for a new one and note my account in case it happened to this second bag. (she also mentioned that this DOES happen like to about 1 in every 1000 bags- although rare it does happen)

well i had to do something while she got one in the back, noted my account and talked about new items: so i picked up a new addition to the family!

Welcome the new baby; Damier Ebene ZCP :P...along with my Coach Poodle Keyfob

If you don't mind me asking, where was your peeling Speedy made? France, Spain or US? I've heard that this happens more often with the Speedies made in USA. Not sure if this is true. Congrats on the new addition to your LV family!:tup:

Congratulations on getting a replacement Speedy. I had mine sent in to replace the handles. The handles were actually reglazed. They did give me a free LV dust cover--the one that it came back in.

I have been looking for handle grips--whether nylon, leather or neoprene--to prevent this from happening again as well as provide a nice cushion for my hands to carry the Speedy around.
