  1. Hi,

    I'm new here, so forgive me if I commit a faux pas.

    Has anyone ever seen a monogram alma, or any other monogram bag for that matter, that has been special ordered to have black vachetta trim? Is it even possible? Does anyone have any idea how much this little eccentric venture might cost a lady?

    Thank you!
  2. I have no idea about the cost, but it wouldn't be considered vachetta. It would be black leather. Only untreated leather (the beige-y colored trim the bag normally comes with) can be considered vachetta. You would be substituting black leather for vachetta :yes:.
  3. i like the mono with black trim, but IMO its a little masculine looking...
  4. Probably 30% on top of the value of the alma, if it is approved.

    I haven't seen one though, although I've seen quite a few Louis Vuitton bags that have the black leather trimming - Christopher backpack, Limited Ed. World Cup Carryall, Waterproof Keepall are the ones that I can remember off the top of my head.

    Submit your special order, you never know ! :yes:
  5. LV turned me down for dark brown trim on regular monogram for a special order but that was a couple years ago. It does not hurt to keep checking with them.
  6. Thanks everyone! At least now I have some idea.
