What does the SP or MI mean? Is it where it's made? Which one is for made in france?
Those prefixes mean where they are made.
For example, for bags made in the US, the prefixes "SD" stand for San Dimas [California].
I thought both date code prefixes SP and MI are for things made in France?
I'm doing some reasearch as to what all of the prefixes mean...
Thanks so much John.
if you go onto ebay, the seller fashionphile has a guide on the datecodes/letters. i was reading it yesterday and it's very helpful. you can just search for their username and click guides that they have contributed. hope this helps!
Hi, SP stands for Saint-Pourcain where there is a LV factory, in France...
