More than likely fake(s).

I have a LV messengar bag but it's not one of the monogramed ones. Most people don't even know that its LV.

A man is allowed to carry one (1) Louis Vuitton manpurse at all times, but only if he pronounces it "Lewis" Vuitton.

LV luggage probably retains resale value better than 95% of cars on the market.

Or a man that has his priorities right imo, have you seen the mark up on car rentals in vacation cities? The $800 he likely saved riding in that Kia for a week instead of a Cadillac will get him a nice LV satchel to add to his collection.

I had post on this awhile ago. I spent a couple weeks in Oakville, Ontario, and 3/4 women of all ages had a LV. (The 4th had Burberry...).


It became really tiresome. I actually do like them, they look nice; just not when they're everywhere.

I think that people are drawn to the connotation of success that a LV bag brings - it is an easy way for people to buy into something that they perceive will demonstrate to others that they are not only successful but cultured. I cant speak to the quality of Louis, but it is certainly a status symbol. Thats why it gets copied so damn much, because people want to demonstrate that they "got it going on" (see also bape fad). On the other hand, if you buy it because you love it and it is functional for you - good for you. I think its a motives question.

I am afraid your phonetic spelling leaves a bit to be desired. The surname is VOO-TAWN, full emphasis on both syllables. And I have it on good authority that "they don't be puttin' holes in they bags."
