I wouldnt buy if they are going to still charge the same price. As production cost would be cheaper in China. But it would be a big risk for LV if they did. I feel it would have a negative impact on them in the long run.
Probably.... I wanted to say "no!" at first then thought "whom am I kidding?!" I would always buy a LV even if it t was made in Hell as long as it stood up to its name and fit all the quality standards.
I worked for an American manufacturer of a high end finishings. I found that Europeans are willing to pay top dollar for things manufactured in the States. Even when the same product is available in their country and has a great reputation of quality world wide and vice versa, Americans will pay top dollar for items manufactured in France even when they can obtain a quality made material from the states. But no matter where I go, China has a bad reputation. I think their codes for acceptable handling and procurement of materials has a lot to do with it even before you take into account manufacturing. Not all leathers are equal in quality. I would hate for LV to move to China.
