    I know this is an older thread that got resurrected but wanted to add this is one of my favorite damier bags too! I love a bag that you get to peak in at the gorgeous interior. I also love the bling on the front, for some reason I love that nameplate on damier more than the mono ones that have that same design element. cruznit1436 totally go for that damier! I have just one damier ebene bag(speedy 30) and would love to get another, one's not even enough, lol.

    Ok so it's been 6 months since I got the Damier Hampstead and I've pretty much been carrying it everyday. I even traveled with it a few times. I love it more and more each day. I especially love the red inside. I get so many compliments on this bag. This was a good buy.

    My only reservations/concerns about it are as follows:

    I have to be really careful because there is no secure top close. So anyone can stick their hand in your bag and take whatever they want if you're not careful. I was at the nail salon. I had my bag sitting right in front of me on the table and one of the employees was admiring the bag and how spacious it is. Before I could really say or do anything she looked inside and said "oh I love your LV wallet." She actually reached in the bag and picked my wallet up. I know she didn't mean any harm but I was shocked that she did that!! But this was a lesson to me. Be very careful if you have this bag or are planning on getting it.

    I'm also starting to notice: the LV plaque on the front is getting slightly scratched; and the straps have a few marks on them where the gold buckles are, I guess from the buckles rubbing up against it.

    I was worried about the solid brown corners at the bottom getting scratched but the corners seem to be doing ok considering I bump up against stuff occasionally when I carry the bag. When I do that I try to make sure I wipe it off though.

    For the most part I take really good care of my bags not including normal wear and tear. Oh and with the exception of my mono speedy 30. That's made to knock around and it stills looks great.

    I'm realizing that some bags need extra TLC. I think the Damier Hampstead is one of them. I'm wondering what it will look like in a few years. I don't think this bag is meant to look beat up. Has anyone ever seen a "beat up" Damier Hampstead? Can you even sell it on eBay if it gets to that point? LOL

    ^^^ I have scratches at the bottom of my hampstead (the brown leather corners), it doesn't bother me much as I consider my Hampstead, the working horse in my collection. I'll never sell my lovely Hampstead. Besides that, no complains about it. I'm loving how the handles aren't as stiff anymore.

    I love this! Isn't that the same bag that Nick Lachey's girlfriend has? I would think this would stay nice looking a long time. The only thing that would worry me a little is the plaque. I love Damier!

    Thanks for your comments! Well I guess when my bag really starts to show some serious wear n tear I will turn it into one of my workhorse bags. That is a great idea! Right now it still looks very new. No one else would notice the little scratches on the plaque and the tiny marks on the straps I've noticed. I only noticed it because I was looking at it up close.

    Thanks!

    I did notice what seemed to be some discoloration on the plaque...but I wiped it off with my shirt sleeve and the discoloration disappeared. Now all the plaque shows is some really tiny scratches that you only notice if you are really looking at it up close. It still looks good.

    Oooh I saw the pic of Vanessa Minnillo carrying her Damier Hampstead in the airport...and after I saw this pic I had an even greater love for my bag. You know, it's like when you consider leaving your boyfriend because you think there is someone better out there for you...but then you find out that another good woman will take him right off your hands with no problem. It kind of really makes you appreciate what you have. LOL

    I wish I could help you decide but I'm confused myself. I'm trying to figure out which LV I will get next. There are so many to choose from. I'm leaning toward a mono canvas.

    Wow, I just noticed all your speedy's! I have to say my favorites are the classic mono and the 2 damiers in ebene and azur.

    Yea she stuck her hand in my bag and I was about to let her have it but I thought about my husband who always says I need to control my temper. LOL

    Ok so I went to the mall again today and the LV Mahina stopped me in my tracks. So I walked into the LV store to inquire about the price. It's $2,990 + tax. Don't know if I will be putting that one on my wish list. Maybe my "DREAM" list.

    If it were $1,200 it would be a no brainer. I would have put that one on my credit card.
