    Default IS MONOGRAM & DAMIER JUST EXPENSIVE VINYL ???

    Hello,
    I have been using my Louis Vuitton President briefcase everyday lately..... and......

    I think the Monogram Canvass is just VINYL! It feels so cheap and plasticy.....

    The President is a lovely briefcase.... it is hand made and quite expensive at AU$5300- in Australia......

    When driving I like to put the LV President in the front passenger seat and touch the Monogram skin at times..... but IT FEELS LIKE CHEAP PLASTIC.....

    I thought Monogram was CANVAS ie cloth derived?

    It really feels like plastic to me......

    My Louis Vuitton President is 100% genuine.... as I just got 2 keys cut from LV......

    Perhaps I am just being negative.....

    DOES ANYONE ELSE FEEL THE SAME WAY????

    Yes, I think that you are being way too negative. (you asked) Louis Vuitton Monogram and Damier are basically coated canvas. If you love the LV brand then why not try an all leather version? Or simply another brand?
    From reading some of your previous posts I think you need to take a deep breath, step back and remember what lured you into the LV brand in the first place? Was it the quality of the brand or basically the "Louis Vuitton" name?

    ^ I agree. Yes, it is coated canvas, so it doesn't feel as nice as other leather bags or other leather LV lines. But the coated canvas holds up really well and will last you a very long time, which is a big plus. A lot of times leather is great to feel, but can also show a lot of wear for the same reasons.
    Now on a BAN!

    My SA explained to me that all Damier and Monogram products are coated 'Egyptian' cotton!

    Canvas is usually made of cotton, so that makes sense.

    Which sounds so much more exotic than "canvas". LOL

    Archie, I think it is time for you to move on!

    It sounds like you are completely fed up with LV!

    Funny, how you are so concern with the your briefcase..when there are so many things in this world you can be concern about...I personally would be happy if I am able to afford bag and purses that are designer....LV or no LV life is way to short to complain about petty things....

    Sincere apologies.... I LOVE LV.

    Calling Monogram simply Vinyl is like calling the M-B Tex in a Mercedes Benz Vinyl!

    (NB - M-B Tex is more expensive than leather at Mercedes Benz).
