Regrets?

Has anyone bought the Neverfull MM in mono and regreted it? I have the Hampstead MM in DE (did have the same bag in Azur, but I live in the wrong climate!).

I'm soooo drawn to the Neverfull MM in mono. I'm looking for a good summer holiday/vacation bag as most of my bags are too structured and formal or dark. Do you think the Neverfull is a good option?

Yes. I had one for 18 months and it looked terrible quickly. The patina set in faster than usual - I think because the straps are so thin. Also, I see them everywhere I go!! I like the style very much, but prefer it in Azur or Mon Mono!! (Also wanted to add I had an Ebene Neverfull last year for 6 weeks and the straps started cracking so I exchanged it for another style!)

What about the Totally? It's kind of the same, but thicker straps and side pockets! I'm sure that would look great in mono

Hi, my 1st post although a lurker for years :smile:

I just got a Neverfull MM in Mono and I love it. I really wanted the DE but the handle issue just freaked me out because I am cursed so I knew it would happen to me. I think you would love the Neverfull. Its is a great everyday bag and something about the Mono on it just really appealed to me. I guess because it has no structure to it and the Mono, at least to me seems more casual.

I looked at the Totally and it was very very nice, but just reminded me of my diaper bags which I have finally stored away, thus feeding my new LV addiction. :smile:

Welcome Nikki5! Thank you so much for your feedback! What's the vachetta like on yours? Are you paranoid about it getting dirty?

Oh gosh, sounds like you've had a bad experience. You don't see them much in my neck of the woods, but when I lived in Seattle it was Neverfull/Speedy central! I was going to use it as a casual beach/summer bag on our summer breaks this year. Decisions decisions:smile:

Vachetta looks good although I am definitely paranoid lol :smile: Not so much because of me, but my 2 little monster children! Thats why at 1st I was leaning towards the DE but the issues with the bags I have seen and then when I saw them both in person I ended up getting the Mono. Plus I live in a climate where it hardly rains, snows etc

I figure for this style of bag IMO, the darkened vachetta looks good because its more like a beach tote type style. img was correct above that the vachetta seems to darken faster because of the thin straps but I just finds it adds character and love to a special piece!

Nope - love the neverfull! It goes on most trips. I love the dark patina that has developed via the trips to many places. I could easily sell all of my canvas bags except the neverfull and Bloomsbury GM.

Yes bought it and sold it. It is so very common where I live I couldn't stand seeing it everywhere I went. But it was a useful bag on trips and it held a lot. I just hated how common it was

I have the NF MM in both mono and DE and I love them. I use the DE for rainy weather since I don't have to worry about the vachetta. I'm going on two years with both and I have had no issues with my DE straps. They look like they are new. My mono has turned a pretty honey patina, but if it gets much darker I will probably sell and get something new. Great bags though, and the perfect size for work and play.
