I LOVE my LVs, but I am a little disheartened that the metal-work (especially the zipper pulls) tarnishes and flakes so easily. For the price we pay - I don't understand why they can't make the metal solid (ie. brass, nickle, etc.) instead they use a cheap metal and coat them with cheap 'finishes' that flakes. My question is - will LV replace these zippers? Has anyone here had it done? How much do they charge? I have a few GLACE and MONO pieces with flaking zipper pulls - and it bugs me to death! Thanks all!
