  1. Hi There -
    I am new to this forum and looking for some advice on a Speedy 30. If it is your first LV bag - do you get Monogram Canvas or Damier? I think both are absolutely beautiful and am torn. I would love any advice/suggestions.
    Thanks in advance :smile:
    :smile:
     
  2. Welcome. They are both beautiful. But the Damier has no vachetta and it easy to take care of it.
     
  3. I love both but I only have the damier right now because I live in New England and it's not a good time of year to be carrying anything with vachetta. I plan on getting the monogram too, I have to have the all time classic LV in my possession!!! Good luck!! :smile:
     
  4. I like the Mono better.. i think this is personal preference..

    goodluck and welcome to the forum!!
     
  5. I would go to the store and find out which one I really love. I'm not really a speedy fan, but if I had to choose between the two, I would get Damier.
     
  6. i love both but my mono 25 was my first bag so i always say go mono first. but if you're getting a 30 maybe damier is better. i like a mono 25 and a a damier 30 for some reason.
     
  7. I prefer Damier. It is more discreet, not as widely carried or widely knocked off, and is actually the oldest of the LV patterns (was created by Vuitton himself in 1888; the Mono Canvas didn't show up until a decade or so later, after LV died.)

    Edited to add: Also, it is more practical (the vachetta on the Mono Canvas does get very dirty after a time.)

  8. Mono!!
     
  9. I personally like the mono. But I think it depends on how flashy/noticeable you want it to be. I mean they are both really nice but I think the mono is more noticeable. Good luck!:smile:
     
  10. ITA!
     
  11. HI! Welcome! :flowers:
    I would get the Mono for your first LV, but if you can go see, hold both IRL , then I would and decide which one you love more! They are both lovely!
    Good luck!
     
  12. mono :yes:
     
  13. I usually prefer the Damier but for a first LV I would definitely go for mono, it's just so classic!
     
  14. Thanks again for all the help :smile:
     
  15. They're both slightly different looks...but it's honestly whatever catches your eye when you try them both on...
