Alright. I'm sick of it. I've seen enough LV things going around to ask what is so damn good about it?

It's so stupid! It's the same patter all over!!

I don't get it. I simply don't. Why are they so expensive?

(..oh and yes I can afford it. )

Gosh, glad to hear you can afford upwards of $450 and wayyy beyond for a handbag.

Anyway, it's expensive because the markup value is robbery and evidently the materials they use are valuable. I dunno

Because enough people will pay for them. I do like the older Coach handbags, not the newer ones, but have never cared for the LV stuff.

Market demand, because people have bought into the brand. That's as simple as it gets, really.

I find them annoying, personally.

See? That's why I hate it. It's expensive because people let them be expensive otherwise it wouldn't be worth crap.

Personally, I think they are hiddeous looking lol. But very popular with the stars so since the stars have them, everyone else wants them.

I spent the weekend in SoCal and I swear 1 out of every 5 women were carrying an LV or other expensive bag.

Whatever you do, dont buy them off ebay. 90% of them are fake. And look so real you cant tell the difference unless you are an avid LV collector or have done a lot of research.

A lot of the LV bags you see are most likely fake. You can get good fakes through purse parties, down on Canal St. in NYC, and I am sure at lots of other places.

There are very few people who can afford the real thing.

I laugh when I see LV luggage or (my favorite) a dog carrier...

I could afford one.

However, I would have to drain my bank account and live without food for a month to do so. Considering that my purse doubles as a portable trash can, I think I'll pass. That, and I don't like them or understand them, either.

So, there is no "real" reason as to why they're so expensive? It's so silly.

I'm happy with my 20$ Gap cotton armyish purse.. Thank You! I honestly don't know what people see in those either, they look hideous.
