I was wondering if these bags get ruined very eisly? Ive heard that if you touch the handle with lotion on your hands it gets ruined is that true? ive also hear that the bag gets ruined from rain.

It does not get ruined but the leather darkens over time and it looks better after long wear...

I have a wallet and a purse and I've never had a problem with either. The lighter straps (like on the classics) darken over time just from your natural oils. And I don't think that putting any leather bag in the rain is a good idea.. You just have to take proper care of them :)

If you get the classic monogramed bag the handles do oxidize and become a caramel color but that is with any good quality leather bag. if that is what you are worried about then get a bag with darker handles that you can't see the color change.

Of course it's leather. But that shouldn't stop you from buying a LV bag if you want one. With any purse wether its high end or not you should take care of it. Of course higher end purses need a little more care.

Its a very high quality bag, the handles yes will "age" over time. Since its leather its easy to clean on the outside and it just gets softer but keeps its beautiful classic look

If you're worried about the leather wearing, you can get one of the Damier Ebene pattern bags. Those leather trimmings are treated and coated and won't show wear like the untreated vachetta/

I've been using my LV wallet daily for the past three years and it still looks brand new.

The handles are normally untreated leather so they are easy to leave marks on, if wanted you could get it professionally treated so you don't have that problem. The purse itself does not have that problem and like any good quality leather it does get worn into but I personally like that better!

These bags are not fragile. They age as any leather good would. You still have to maintain the item.

They do hold up very well however they are leather. So, like any leather, they need proper care.
