    lol they all look crap.

    Most items of clothing are ruined once you stick a massive brand logo/name on it. Turns you into a walking advertisement which I find unattractive.

    I wasn't comparing.

    Imo, If you're taking a look just at the product itself, these luxury items, though they have very high quality, their branding, iconic image and their customer service make the products very expensive. Even tho luxury isn't exclusive anymore.

    Their bags are an investment, but the quality isn't the same as it used to be, the bags from the previous decades are worth far more than the new ones.
    The quality of LV bags have more or less been the same. Were it to change significantly, the brand would suffer huge damage to their reputation. One of the major selling points of luxury fashion houses is their reputation for quality.

    Also not sure about the last part of your comment where you say the bags from previous decades are worth more than the new ones? That might be true for Hermes but I don't think that's true for LV.

    A bit like how Burberry lost it prestige when they became associated with Chav culture. Although, LV does makes some very nice pieces. I do like the Monogram Vernis Leather; it's not something you see people wearing often and patent leather is easy to care for. I think the safest choices for "prestige" and investment will always be Chanel and Hermes. I don't think either of them could ever become tacky. The value of Chanel handbags has risen faster than property or gold since the 1950s, and has never fallen.
    Slowly but surely, I feel like Burberry is rising up in the ranks again! The pattern does still evoke nausea, but they're on their way to recovery I feel.
    Epi leather and the leather options in general are quite nice, I agree with the vernis - I haven't seen that worn out much.

    Probably true, but Hermes I feel is the worst - ugly and simple design, huge waiting lists and celebrities owning tens in different colours. I see that their resell price is high though, as you point out. Chanel has a price increase multiple times a year I believe, I feel that helps them retain their inaccessibility. Chanel is the safest bet, I agree.

    Chanel defo hike their prices up at least twice a year. I hate how LV and Chanel burn their unsold bags, refusing to particpate in sales, to retain their exclusivity and high prices. Seems unethical when there are starving children out there!

    I've never seen a chav with a genuine Burberry hat or clothing, I must of missed it. The tartan was a bit horrible though, to be fair.

    Burberry have definitely shaken off that tarnish to their reputation though. Really nice, elegant clothing. (Their new collection is awful though - AW15 was nicer)

    Sales cheapen the brand for me, I have to say that it is a good move on their part. It retains their image in some way. This is why I place Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermes on a higher level than Valentino, Givenchy and Burberry - who do partake in sales.

    I do agree that it seems a waste of resources though, if only something can be done to redress this.

    I've never been big on Louis Vuitton (only ever used their luggage), but it's definitely not what it used to be. So this really doesn't come as a surprise to me.

    Nooooooo :nope: - it is so tacky. :rofl: Would be a far more prudent move to impart a little more cash and invest in a piece from their permanent collection - or Dior perhaps.

    Take my advice, don't spend money on something that will go out of fashion - I've been foolish enough to do that with one handbag. I throughly regret it. :lol:

    Tbh I wear very plain clothes, I'm not a fan of logos on clothing. Beyond me why you'd buy fake branded clothing.

    I'm a mix of both.

    Personally, I've never bought a fake because i'd feel embarrassed if someone found out.
