  1. Has anyone switched out the canvas strap to a vachetta one? Do you have pics? I'm thinking of doing this as I feel the mono strap is a little uncomfortable. Help please!
     
  2. That's a good idea. You can always go to a store to try the other strap on with your bag.
     

  3. Good idea. I never wear mine because I hate the mono strap. For this reason, may even sell. Not sure I want to invest in another strap, but might based on your outcome. Please keep us posted.
     
  4. I ordered the vachetta strap so I will post when I get it. I only love the vachetta once it has a rich patina color.

    Hope this helps. Personally I think it looks great with either strap. The vachetta strap matches the handle nicely as well.
     

  6. Thanks so much! That really helps. I love it!
     

  7. One more thing, how tall are you?
     

  8. I'm 5'6". I had it on the last hole.
     

  9. Thank you. I'm 5'6 too and I want the strap a little longer. Just found an Etsy seller who makes them. I may cancel my order with LV since it's not long enough for me when worn cross body. Thank you for all your help!
     

  10. You're most welcome! It's a great bag no matter which strap you use.
     
  11. I switched mine out to the vachetta strap. It's more flexible thinner and I think less flashy.
     

  12. I think the vachetta strap help balence the bag out! Who doesn't love vachetta!?
     
  13. Ok, I ordered the LV strap and also one from Etsy. I've included a couple pics (not my pic) for the Etsy vachetta strap for my Pochette Métis. I'm conflicted if I should just go with the less expensive strap or stay true to LV. Thoughts? It would be nice to save the money, but I just don't know.

  14. I think I would be more "ok" with it if it weren't made to look JUST like an LV strap. Because it goes further than "inspired by," I might use the "f" (fake) word to describe it. No offense. I cannot get with fs, so my vote would be to return the etsy rendition. No question.
     

  15. That's my dilemma. I'm a purist, so I know it will bother me if I don't have the LV strap. I feel kinda shallow for saying that, but it's the truth. Thanks for your help.
