i was talking to my SA wen i went to get my graphite wallet on friday. She implied that there was no more wc speedys. bc we were talking about the camo one. Basically how u have to know ahead of time to make sure you get one. Then we were talking about the WC Speedy and how my mom (white) got lucky and got her name on the list right b4 they stopped taking names. but it was about 1200 just to answer your question. But i say go down and talk to a person its always better.
I spoke with LV in Waikiki (on the avenue) and she did add my name to the waitlist but informed me the chances were slim, this was a little over a week ago. I also spole with LV at the mall and they told me that as of the 18aug they had heard of no price increase for Hawaii. This same person told me that LV Hawaii merged with the mainland LV a couple months ago and this is why they stopped shipping to the mainland.
Thanks for all your replies. I have mine at last but wow did I pay over the nail for it! Kinda takes the good out of it but I suppose I should have researched credit card exchange rates first, noone to blame but myself!
