I've never even been offered a box for any of my top designer bags!!! I think it's great to have the protection but that must take up a ton of space - and doesn't leather need some breathing room? or am I thinking of lettuce?foxy_chao said:Mine are in their dust bags and original gift boxes. I get super annoyed when they don't provide a box. I usually don't buy a bag without a box. It's hard to store the bags and protect their shapes without a box.
