    Default Is speedy worth it?

    Like many LV collectors, my first was a mono pochette. But unlike many collectors, I didn't get the speedy as my next bag. I got the bucket instead (which is FINALLY getting relined ...but I miss it )...and then I've expanded to other bags. My question is, is the speedy really worth getting? I would much rather invest on a cabas or a batignolles or even a gucci doctor satchel. Occasionally I'll see a speedy on ebay, and I wonder if I'm really missing out...

    I like the Cabas better than the Speedy.

    ^^I know, I do, too. It's just that it seems like everyone who has an LV has/had a speedy...and I guess I feel left out

    I personally don't like having a bag that EVERYONE else has...that's another reason why I say pic the Cabas.

    The speedy is a nice bag but like what you said, I personally would rather put my money towards something else. Between the cabas and batignolles, I personally would choose the batignolles.

    Oh and one purchase that I have to make within the next few months is for the azur speedy!
    oooh and the Gucci doctor satchel! :wub: I have been watching them on eBay recently, and they have been going for like $300!

    Have you seen the Christian Dior Vintage Voyage Boston Bag in the BLUE (not brown)! its also ooooh so pretty

    Jennifer be careful on Ebay. I know you say you make sure they have a receipt but $300 seem pretty cheap for that bag. I don't know if you have heard but some scammers now are buying 1 real bag and copying the receipts and selling replicas with receipts or making receipt templates that are fake! So make sure and do your homework or make sure the seller you buy from has a return policy for authenticity.

    Oh I am sure of their authenticity. They are vintage gucci bags (I forgot to mention that above ), so they dont go for that much anyway. I also only bid if they have at least 2000 feedback all handbag or designer related with no less than 98%

    Well, you sure did do your homework. Everyone should be as good as you about making sure they are buying from a honest seller. Good Luck!

    I saw that! I thought it was really pretty, and you're right about the obvious wear on vintage speedys.

    I love how the doctor satchels stay so pretty after all these years. I think it would be a great investment, and a lot of them have detachable shoulder straps.

    I bought my speedy 25 in 2003...at that time not much people were carrying it....but now, you can almost see 1 out of 10 holding a speedy in the shopping mall. I kind of stop using mine already.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...have you guys ever looked at the French Luggage Company website? They're the ones who used to be authorized to make Louis Vuitton Speedys (http://www.frenchluggage.com). They still have some bags at some really great prices...I personally like the black ones:



    Sacoche ($145). Like the speedy 25, but much cheaper.

    Oh, Jennifer, you already posted this. Hehe. But I just wanted to share this with everyone.

    only question is. . if you saw someone walking down the street with one, what would you think? Would you think that other people think that its an inspired louis vuitton speedy even though they use to make them.

    I would probably think it was a replica myself.
