    Default MENS ITEMS..... HARD CASE Breifcases....and more

    Hello All,
    Thank you for the very kind responses to my postings. This is so different to tpf ..... this forum seems to be for genuine enthusiasts!

    I just got my latest LV purchase in today...

    Let me tell you the history.

    I have wanted a HARD CASE briefcase for years... they have always been so expensive and very rarely available on the used market. I tried to convince myself that HARD CASE breifcases were out of date... but that made me want one all the more - especially if it is OUT of fashion. I like to defy fashion. The HARD CASE BRIEFCASE would become the pinnacle of my collection...

    Anyhow I have been searching ebay daily for LOUIS VUITTON BRIEFCASES and then I saw something last week.

    0 feedback bidder... Louis Vuitton Hard Case briefcase...
    2 poor photos...
    I thought I would place a bid.
    I checked the photos with my LV catalogues and it all appeared correct.

    I won the auction last Friday.
    I thought PayPal would be the best way to pay - they do offer protection - so I sent AU$1200- to a 0 feedback bidder and crossed my fingers...

    Anyhow... The item arrived and YES IT IS REAL!
    I took a huge risk and it paid off... (mind you Paypal does reduce the risk).
    I am so happy with the purchase.

    The Item is a LOUIS VUITTON TIAGA DIPLOMATE BRIEFACE in burgendary. Date code reveals the bag is from 1997. Condition is excellent if not mint (very few light scruffs, marks).

    I am so happy.

    I finally have a HARD CASE Louis Vuitton item...

    My mens section is looking FANTASTIC.









    My other briefcases...
    I now have 1 x monogram, 1 x epi, 1 x tiaga briefcase. What a perfect collection. Next area to concnetrate on is TRAVEL GOODS - keepal, pegasis...
