  1. My friend just bought a pre-owned Red (Hot) Epi Alma and it was so beautiful. She's so excired, but I noticed something and I want to confirm with you guys first before I confront her on this.

    1. Her Epi Alma doesn't have the strap holder at the handles. In my knowledge, Alma at one side of each handle, the hardware have a special hook for the extra shoulder strap.

    2. The stitches on the leather which is sewn to the bag for the handles have like 6 to 7 stiches on top, 5 to the side, and 6 down. Normally, esp. on speedies, I noticed its, 5,5,5.

    Can someone please confirm this for me before I made any mistake?

    Thanks!:s
     
  2. I have an Alma in Epi Moka.
    Across the top = 6
    Down the sides moving outwards = 5
    Down the sides moving into meet = 7

    <<1. Her Epi Alma doesn't have the strap holder at the handles. In my knowledge, Alma at one side of each handle, the hardware have a special hook for the extra shoulder strap.>> Correct. Pont Neuf and most LV bags designed for an added shoulder strap will have these too.
     
  3. ^^^Thanks Epi-Cured!

    That's what I want to confirm first.

    I did ask her where is the strap holder or hook, but she just look at me blankly. i don't have the heart to tell her until its confirmed.

    Does anyone else know about this? Maybe the old ones doesn't have it?:shrugs:
