  1. I purchased a Speedy 25 about 3 months ago. I had all of the vachetta replaced. The bag cost me 315.00. The repair cost 540.00.

    Here are my before and after pictures

  2. Wow that canvas is beautiful especially with the new vachetta! Congrats!
  3. 540+315= 855. A new speedy 25 is $1000. A new one is only $145 more plus tax. Just curious why you didn’t just purchase a new one. Just looking for a vintage bag with the old thicker canvas?

  4. It’s beautiful. But I would’ve paid the extra 145 for a new one. But that’s just me. Unless of course 1987 means something to you.

    Enjoy your newly refurbished bag. It’s beautiful.

  5. I was born in 1987. I wanted one from my year of birth that was made in France. It wasn’t about saving money at all.
  6. I was born in 1987 and I wanted a classic bag from that year. It wasn’t about saving money. I also don’t like the newer puffy chaps.

  7. I asked if 1987 meant something to you as to why you didn’t want to spend 145 for a new one. No need to get defensive. Enjoy your bag.
  8. Looks great! Thanks for sharing. Enjoy!!
  9. I’m not getting defensive. I was just telling you the importance of 1987. I’m sorry if it came off that way. I was just sharing and replying.
  10. good for you! hope you love it!

  13. Oh that makes it special. Congrats! Also good to know they repair older items. For some reason I thought there was a limit of like 20 years, but probably not on the speedy since they are still in production.

  14. Beautiful! My opinion is it was worth it especially the older bags have thicker better quality canvas.
