    Default vintage Louis Vuitton Monogram Papillon 26 Purse

    Would you wear a vintage LV bag? With the dark brown leather straps?

    I would have to see it in person. From the pictures I don't like it. It might just be because I'm not used to it though.

    If I bought it back when it was released then I would probably wear it.. but I would rather buy the newer version with patina

    I like it... but then again, people would probably accuse me of having a fake LV if they didn't know they used to make them with that kind of leather.

    I like that kind of leather better- it would be easier to take care of

    i like this version better. i think the brown accents teh monogram canvas in a better way, plus patina is a PAIN to deal with.

    if it were out now, then i would wear it. but i agree with BrS about people thinking that it is a fake if they weren't aware of the fact that some vintage LV has dark leather. and besides, i love the vachetta and patina (even though it is a PAIN).

    I wouldn't care what other people think. If I know I'm carrying the real thing then what would I care if someone thought it wasn't authentic. I wear my bags for me and no one else :)

    With so much going on with price increases...it all boils down to this:

    Which one costs less? The vintage or the new? ... That is prob what I would carry.

    However, my LV of choice is a Montorgueil PM, and that is brand new so I guess I am stuck with the patina...

    I think they're great bags, and you've no worries about the weather affecting delicate vachetta! I don't think you've much worry on others thinking them fake, as to me they always looked quite clearly vintage even before I became familiar with LV. Gorgeous bags with tons of life left for a great price.

    I prefer light leather on LV. Wish it didn't patina.
