Neverfull

⭐High quality – 10/10⭐️

Leather-based: The brand new matte leather-based is *cooks kiss* Ah-mazing! The handles really feel a weeee bit dry, however this does not hassle me. Will edit the assessment if I expertise any cracking. There was no fufu scent and the creases have “fallen out” of the bag inside a few days (I did stick a bag shaper in it, so which may have helped).

Canvas: The canvas doesn’t really feel as gritty as my auth nevertheless it doesn’t really feel rubbery. I will not deduct factors as a result of I would not think about this a call-out. It is sturdy and the bag feels adequately structured. I don’t have an genuine DE piece to match the undertones, however I do know that completely different batches of DE canvas can differ in colour/undertone as properly.

{Hardware}: It is a rep, so I wasn’t anticipating an actual match, however I used to be actually shook once I noticed the quantity of element within the {hardware}. The {hardware} is shiny gold all through the bag apart from the zipper pulls (on each the inside pocket and the pochette) that are a extra matte gold. Talking of zippers… yall… these zippers are sooooo clean.

Craftsmanship: Stitching is neat and clear.

Pochette: Feels examine and like a considerable slg… I’ve really used the pochette greater than the Neverfull 🙈.

⭐️Accuracy – 9.75/10⭐️

Measurements (-.25): Auth: (12.6 x 11.four x 6.7) vs Rep: (12.25 x 11.25 x 6)

I wasn’t planning to subtract any factors for the measurements being ever so barely off since there is a component of human error to be conscious of when measuring, BUT because the bag is about .25-.5 inches smaller than the auth throughout, I did discover that the 2 bag organizers that I bought to suit the Neverfull MM are a bit comfortable.

Inside: Pocket appears to be like to be the right dimension, and the date code is appropriately positioned. The pink inside does not look too deep or too orange-ish. The engraving on the zipper pull shouldn’t be as deep/sharp trying because the auth, however the engraving on the entire buttons and D-ring shapes all look good. Inside emblem stamp has the right font, and placement.

Alignment: Appears good per my sew and sq. counting and the cinch strap thingie is sewn left-over proper.

With out an genuine piece to match to, I’m actually simply eye-balling it right here and evaluating to pictures/movies of the auth I’ve seen on-line. Except the measurements above, it appears to be like as if the bag is spot on. The general form and deal with drop look appropriate. The deal with attachments (leaves?) are the right form and placement.

⭐️Satisfaction – 10/10⭐️

This bag has surpassed my expectations. Truthfully, my solely grievance is that I didn’t buy the GM dimension so my work laptop computer would match comfortably.

Speedy

⭐️High quality – 10/10⭐️

See High quality from Neverfull assessment above. (The canvas, leather-based, and {hardware} are an identical. They appear to be from the identical batches because the Neverfull.)

⭐️Accuracy – 9.75/10⭐️

This bag is spot on. The form and alignment look appropriate. The inside pocket appears to be like to be the right dimension and the pink inside appears to be like correct. The {hardware} is 3-toned however with out having an auth aspect by aspect, I can not touch upon if the shades are appropriate. The engraving on the zipper pull shouldn’t be as deep/sharp trying because the auth, however the engraving on the entire buttons and D-ring shapes all look good. The one discrepancies I see are with the leather-based bandolier half that’s sewn onto the edges of the bag. The recent stamp says “(c) LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in France” whereas my auth Keepall says “(c) LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” (see second picture in album right here.) I do see it stamped each methods on completely different auth Speedy’s however I have never achieved sufficient digging to find out if that is correct for this particular bag. Not deducting factors for this, however I’ll deduct (-.25) as a result of this specific stamp is sort of gentle/faint in comparison with the auth. I will even word that the on the edges of the bag, the bandolier stitching is .25mm from the left edge and .2mm from the suitable edge. Not deducting for this as a result of lower than .5mm is hardly one thing to go loopy over, however within the spirit of being thorough and clear, I am pointing it out.

⭐️Satisfaction – 10/10⭐️

No complaints AT ALL. I’m completely happy and this bag has been the deciding think about my buying a rep Keepall.

Mini Pochette Accessoires

⭐️High quality – 8.75/10⭐️

Leather-based: This doesn’t have the brand new matte leather-based -sad face- however since it’s simply on the little pull-tab, this isn’t an enormous deal. (No factors off right here since this was specified earlier than I made the acquisition.)

Canvas: The canvas… (sigh) Clearly they’ve made enhancements on the brand new batch of canvas (Speedy and Neverfull) as a result of the canvas on the mini pochette is just barely textured, and has a rubbery really feel to it. (-.5) The DE print shouldn’t be as sharp because the Neverfull and the Speedy. The squares with “Louis Vuitton Paris” look just a little fuzzy (see third picture in album right here) (-.5) I don’t have an genuine DE piece to match the undertones, however this one is darker than the Neverfull and Speedy. Not deducting any factors for the colour, since genuine batches of DE canvas differ in colour/undertone as properly.

{Hardware}: (Identical as Neverfull and Speedy above) Chain, zipper, clasp, D-ring… all of them look nice and performance completely.

Craftsmanship: Stitching is neat and clear, however there there are two locations the place I can see the pink inside by the folds (see fourth picture in album right here) (-.25).

⭐️Accuracy – 9.5/10⭐️

Form, dimensions, and chain size all look nice. The pink inside appears to be like good, and the branding on the clasp appears to be like nice. The engraving on the zipper pull appears to be like just a little fuzzy-ish (-.25). The alignment is a weee bit off on one aspect. (-.25)

⭐️Satisfaction – 9/10⭐️

The rubbery feeling canvas and fuzzy DE print are the most important points for me, however love every part else about this cute little factor.

Baggage Tag & Scorching Stamp

⭐️High quality – 8/10⭐️

The matte leather-based is a bit more matte than the Neverfull and the Speedy, however nonetheless nice high quality leather-based. The baggage tag and strap should not as thick because the auth baggage tag, however not noticeable until you’re actually holding them aspect by aspect one another. The largest downside is that I can’t appear to get the baggage tag to remain closed (-2). (The little flap that exposes the contact info inside, retains rising up). To me that is “callout-able” because the Auth baggage tags all the time appear to shut good and cushty.

The recent stamp is neater thank my Auth, however the gold paint has already began flaking off. (-1) Humorous sufficient, performing this comparability is the primary time I noticed how horrible a job the LV retailer did on my sizzling stamp! (They apparently stamped it erratically, after which re-stamped it, so there’s a little little bit of a shadow, and the ink has leaked outdoors the strains…yuck)

⭐️Accuracy – 9.5/10⭐️

Identical to the Speedy, the stamp says “(c) LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in France” the place my auth Keepall says “(c) LOUIS VUITTON PARIS.” Once more, I received’t deduct factors for this, however I’ll deduct factors as a result of the stamp may be very faint/gentle (-.25) The form appears to be like correct however it’s a hair shorter than the auth. (-.25) The {hardware} on the baggage tag can be thinner than the auth however I will not deduct for this since I am unsure if that has something to do with the truth that the baggage tag I’m evaluating it to is for a Keepall and it needs to be thicker since it is a baggage piece? (If anybody is aware of, please let me know and I will replace if mandatory!)

⭐️Satisfaction – 5/10⭐️

I’m dissatisfied as a result of the baggage tag simply would not keep closed (would possibly gorilla glue it shut – lol), and the recent stamp has already began rubbing off although I haven’t really used it but. Contemplating that the rep baggage tag is $45 and the Auth baggage tag was $90-ish final time I purchased one (I’m unsure how a lot they’re going for now) I really feel like I’d a lot moderately simply buy an Auth baggage tag from my SA. I do know a few of them are nit-picky about promoting baggage tags 🙄, which is why I hoped to like this, however alas…

⭐️Vendor Communication and Service – 10/10⭐️

Outdated Cobbler (s??) responds EXTREMELY rapidly. This being my first time contacting a TS, I used to be nervous y’all… however OC was thorough, and useful and defined every part. They clarified and confirmed each element of my order and made the method painless. (I say “they” as a result of relying on the day, I swear I felt like I used to be chatting with completely different folks.) I used to be happy with the benefit of communication with Outdated Cobbler. I gave up making an attempt to get onto wechat, so speaking with him/her through IG was waaaaay extra handy for me. They did present a full contact record of sellers to work with, however I haven’t branched out to working with anybody else but. (To be trustworthy, I’m unsure precisely who I’ve been working with, i Simply know that they reply promptly – lol) My favourite half about working with Outdated Cobbler is that the yupoo albums have the costs listed!!! 🙌.
