Thoughts on the new Louis Vuitton mens line?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Eluxury posted Louis Vuitton's men summer line of bags [luggage of sorts] and I thought they were pretty interesting for traveling. This one I thought looks great in the dark color, except the handles look odd to me. The price is way out of the ballpark for what I spend..but it's nice to gawk.. $2,070 http://images.eluxury.com/assets_....ene.jpg I didn't care for this one as much, but I think i'd like it more if it was the same color as the previous bag. But yet again, way toooo expensive for what it is.. $925 http://images.eluxury.com/assets_....ero.jpg

They seem to be reintroducing their V logo which was used in the 19th century.

I saw the LV men's wear line two years ago at its flagship Rodeo store. I was not impressed at all. The ties were selling for $145 (two years ago) and it looks and feels cheap. As to the sweaters, suits, nothing spectacular either. Instead of buying LV (never goes on sale), why not consider the Marc Jacob's menswear line? At least you can get them at 70% off the MSRP at the right time of the year (January, February, July, August time frame).

Whether you're paying $10 or $1000, logowear looks cheap, tacky, and fashion-victimy. That pretty much sums up my thoughts on LV.

A man should carry a briefcase for business, decent luggage, a a duffel, or a backpack for travel (depends on the type of travel) and a courier (messenger) bag for everyday or weekends. A man "tote" is just a purse, sorry. And those LV bags are ugly, whether they are going super, super retro or not.

agreed i hate logos so much, i don't care what other people are wearing/spending and frankly I don't want people to know how much i spent on something, thats just plain out tacky.

the only loui stuff i like are the vintage 1800's trunks. you can get some of them for a grand or two, which is what you you would pay for a new breifcase or bag which is ridiculous. the trunks look great in your house, as a shelf or storage bin or something. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW this ones kind of neat, smaller then what im talking about but you get the idea.

although i may be making an investment in that monaco scarf in brown that they have on eluxury. will work good for a kneckercheif type thing.

Huh, neat. I wouldn't buy it, but neat nonetheless. Jon.

yeah, louis vuitton has been around for 100's of years. before they started making trendy handbags and crap they used to only make luggage for the very wealthy. some of those trunks look like they have come straight off the titantic or something, with all sorts of stamps on them from going in and out of customs. pretty cool. the polo mansion in N.Y. used to have some laying around for decoration, dont know if they still do. personally i would rather spend the money on a suit.

I would never be able to carry anything that had a Louis or any other logo on it. Maybe I am more superficial than the people who do, for even being concerned about being perceived in some negative way. However, just feeling that I was part of that ubiquitous, unoriginal, and not-so-exclusive club would be miserable. It's not even that the bags are so ugly, it's just that they're tedious. I would be an immediate turn-off if I met a women who carried one, also. Please, display a little bit of imagination, sweetheart.

i agree, and those fake marukami multi colored ones that look like plastic with the cell phone holders hanging off them are a complete turn off. if a bird is going to buy one atleast get a real one, and not one of those damn rainbow colored things, even as unoriginal as it may be.

A woman who is carrying Longchamp will get more of my attention than one who is carrying LV. Jon.

Regardless of the tack 'soho girl' or 'Arab in Geneva to find the cash' image that goes with it, I must say, the 'Diored Out' girls are quite attractive; much more so than the Longchamp carrier is.
