I am having a bit of a trouble deciding between the two. So please help me out here.
Black vs. Beige?
Black seems more practical and chic; but I also have a bunch of other black bags. I also have a beige bag - Fendi.

The Galet is pretty.

Be aware though, that some years of these bags were included in the 'recall' because of issues with glazing. I had one that turned to goo. If you buy second hand, be sure it's from somewhere that you can return.

That is good to know! These are only sold at secondhand stores so I doubt they would accept returns. Were only the galets part of the recall?

Do you remember what year those were? Does LV repair bags if they are authentic but you are not the original purchaser?

They have but not always. It's risky to assume they always will replace. I'm going through something similar. I think if my old SA was still working at LV she could make it happen but it's not always a guarantee.

Some of the old multicolor pieces have bleeding issues and some have received free fixes and others not.

I had both but LV took them back because of glazing issues. I had to choose other bags and I was glad that I could replace both with others that did not have an issue.
