I just called the LV consumer services, to ask about the new hardware on the pap´and the woman on the phone didn´t know they had changed...?

But what she was certain they have changed the lining, what ???:confused1:
Do you know what does the new lining look like ????

....and also added that I should ask directly to the shops but I would for sure get the new version.......:sad: bad bad news....:sad:

From my research the new lining is red grained leather.
It used to be brownish. That´s 1 good point for the new pap´.

^ I am not sure what you mean but basically they have replaced the square buckles with the thin buckles to match monogram, which I don't like very much.....

Yes ..love the red lining but don't like the hardware. I prefer old hardware with old lining. Old lining has terracota color so it's not too bad, it's orange red color. I prefer the look of old hardware..

Still some available with old hardware, you just have to make some phone calls. I think Twiggers got her papi 30 with old hardware too..

I didn't realize that you are not in US,sorry

I guess it worths to ask for staff nicely to find you one with old hardware. Do you want me to take the pics of old hardware incase some of them not aware of the changes?
