Hi everyone! I love reading all your opinions on practically everything and I totally respect each one. I have two questions I hope you could help me with.... 1) Does the LV store (or any designer store) know who's carrying a real bag or a fake one when you enter it? 2) How long before the LV natural leather gets its patina and do you think it looks bad (or fake) if the cowhide leather is still light? Looking forward to your replies. Thanks in advance!
