    Default Manhattan?

    Hi All,

    Before going into LV store I was a big fan of galleria pm and the speedy 30, that was until I saw the Manhattan PM in the Cairns LV store. How georgous? Does anyone have a manhattan if so what are your views? 6 days till I go with DH in melbourne to buy a couple.

    The Manhattan PM was my very 1st LV purchase. It's really pretty, but it can't hold too much. It can only hold my wallet and a couple of other things. You also have to be careful not to scratch the golden brass pieces on the front of the bag. I wouldn't consider using it as an everyday bag because of the size. I only use mine when I go out to a formal party. If you want you can try what you like best when you go to the LV boutique. My choice would be the Galliera PM, that was the next LV on my wishlist.

    thank you for that, you have changed my mind now. Having 2 little girls I need a good size bag, so I think I will go for the galleria now. I like the azur but do you know if they are hard to keep clean?

    I have an Azur piece in the Hampstead MM and I barely use it bc I don't like the look of patina on the Azur. It looks off to me when the handles are darker than the bag. I would stick to the Monogram Galliera bc it looks really nice with patina, it goes well together. I love it especially, when the handles turn a honey color. But, really its up to you and what you like. Whatever bag you decide to get it well be a good one!

    ^^^ The Galliera is an excellent choice, it's much roomier than the Manhattan. BTW, I think the Manhattan is pure gorgeous!!

    I agree with Jiezell. Love the galliera PM in mono. I had an azur saleya PM and sold it before I even used it cause I couldn't see myself using it when the vachetta patinas. Dark vachetta looks better on mono IMO.

    I would recommend something in Mono, JMO... I've got 2 boys and I hardly use my azur speedy as I get so paranoid that it would get milk stains or whatever... I still get paranoid with my mono ones though!

    I have a Manhattan GM and a Galliera GM... obviously I love big bags! But I also love both bags! They are completely different, as I use the Manhattan as a hand-held bag (although it can fit all the way up my arm). The Manhattan is my all-time favorite... but I do love how soft the Galliera is!

    The Manhattan PM was my very 1st LV, and she is beautiful, but so heavy so sadly, I had to pass her along.......

    I had a Manhattan PM in 2005 but sold it a few months later because it was too small and too heavy for me. I don't do very well with heavy bags. But if you love it and the size and weight doesn't bother you then I say go for it!! After all you are the one carrying it.

    I would choose the Galliera because it is much easier to carry and it is bigger. I love the Manhattan, but I think the PM is way too small.

    wishlist..

    .vernis alma mm in pomme d'amour
    .artsy mm
    .python galliera pm
    .monogram galliera pm

    My only concern about the beautiful Manhattan PM is that it is on the small side and may not be enough space for all your daily essentials. It is gorgeous though!
