I used this method on my bum bag. I wanted to wear it more as a sling and it hit me in a weird place so I carefully removed the straps so I could use a longer one. No regrets at all. I don't intend to sell it, so that's what made the decision for me.
Ooh, interesting idea for the bumbag! Would you mind sharing pictures of what your bumbag looks like with a different strap please? TIA

I say cut it off. I want to do the same. I think it will resale just fine as SO many people want it without that darn strap! LV will always resell. Maybe you will get $100 less but look at all the ways you can use it by removing that unadjustable strap! Do it! Post pictures! I am following using a seam ripper per advice of a cobbler.

It is your property and you can do as you want but to alter an authentic Louis Vuitton bag like this will diminish its value. I say no. If the fixed strap bothers you, sell it to someone who feels comfortable with the strap as is.

Ok guys. Ive been debating should I cut or not cut the strap and I finally cut my nano speedy strap off!!!!
my reasoning was, its only $1k bag and I really wanted to use it as a small top handle so I just went ahead and did it.
Not bad, but do save the strap just in case you might need it later. I'm sure someone can always put it back.

Wow!!!
The bag looks sooooo cute without a strap dangling on the side. :biggrin:
Thanks for sharing so we could all see what it looks like without it. Now I want this bag even more!!

Yes! It's so much better looking without the strap! I admire your brave soul. :smile:
I just ordered one today so I'm trying to figure out if I should cut the strap off too. Congrats!

Omg, it is so adorable without the strap! Can't wait to see the strap w the new lobster claws. I've thought of doing this even before buying the bag but just don't have the balls, lol. Kudos for being so brave!
