  1. Well, it looks like I will be getting a credit for my faulty Ikat Neverfull GM, so I am trying to narrow down what I should exchange it for. I don't know if I will have a certain time frame in which to use the credit or if I can wait and use it later. Anyways, I just bought the Azur Neverfull MM and a TP26 in the jungle print. So, here is a list of what I am looking at. I kind of wanted something with no vachetta, but nothing is really blowing me away right now. I don't mind paying a little extra either.

    Neverfull GM in ebene (only concern is the straps cracking...is that still an issue?)

    If the ebene strap thing is still a problem, then maybe a Neverfull GM in the mono

    Phenix PM in mono w/noir

    Jungle print Neverfull

    Keepall 55

    I wish I could track down a Metis hobo, but I doubt that will happen.

    I have a few other tote styles in other brands, so I'm not sure if I need another tote, but they are all the MM size, so maybe a GM would be good for travel to replace the GM I am taking back.

    Here is a list of what I currently have in LV:

    Neverfull MM Mono and Azur
    Pochette Metis
    Delightful PM Mono (old model)
    Speedy B 25 and 35 in ebene
    Speedy 30 Azur
    Pochette NM

    Thanks!
     
  2. If nothing's jumping out at you and the credit doesn't have to be used immediately then wait. The fall/winter lineup looks interesting, so maybe something will make your heart sing, but don't just grab something for the sake of having it since you wouldn't be happy.
     
  3. I have had the DE Neverfull GM for a year now and no issues with the straps :smile: I use it every day as my handbag and purchased an organizer in the red color to fit all my SLG's.
     
  4. If you used the neverfull GM, I would get it in DE :smile: I've had mine for 3 years and it's even the old model. Around when I bought it there were a lot of complaints, but I haven't had any cracking :smile: just the slight creasing that happens on any DE straps over time. It has been used very, very frequently lol.
     
  5. I am taking it in tomorrow, so I will see what they say. I have heard different situations where some people have 30 days and others have had to pick something right then. I would rather wait until the fall, but I don't know how the credit will work.
     
  6. Thanks. It's good to know that the straps are holding up under normal use. I'm ok with creasing.

    Do you cinch your bag regularly?
     
  7. I've had my DE never full for 2 years and no issues so far. That being said, I love the Phenix. You said you already had a lot of totes so maybe a change in shape would be good.
     
  8. It's funny, but I thought I would cinch it all the time and I hardly ever do. I'm 5'5" and love the "big bag" look I guess lol. But that really the reason I purchased the GM size, I think cinching the GM looks adorable and a lot better than how the MM looks when it's cinched.
     

  9. No, I never really cinched it. Once in a while if I was somewhere where I was concerned about someone reaching in behind me I would, but that's it.
     
  10. Some ladies had to use their credit immediately. I would get the Keepall in the new Mono Eclipse. :loveeyes:
     
  11. Phenix pm for sure. I'm the only person on the earth who doesn't care for the neverfull.
     
  12. Keepall with the strap- if u travel a bit or go away on weekend trips! The bag looks awesome and holds a lot. Phenix pm next choice. I like the NF but u already have 2...
     

  13. We do more weekend trips in the summer but I don't think I would want to carry it around in a airport. It would be fine for the road trips though.




    I'm leaning towards the Phenix, but I haven't seen it in person
     
  14. Keepall in Mono eclipse or mono macassar or mono.
     
  15. I came home with the Phenix PM in the monogram and noir combo. It's beautiful and the quality to superb. I'll post some pictures later if anyone is interested.
