Louis Vuitton pocket organizer

For those of you that own or owned Louis Vuitton wallets, do you prefer Canvas or Leather? Iím possibly looking into LV pocket organizer but donít know which one to go with. Price difference is very small. I take care of my stuff, but do want something to last since it would be my on and only. For those of you that own or owned both or either canvas or Epi, please let me know which one you prefer and why.

Thanks!

I own a damier graphite card holder, and pocket organizer which is canvas and both have held up really well after 6 years. I take care of my things and don't abuse them so that helps in it not ripping or looking old. Don't over stuff the vertical card slots (max two cards) and it should be fine, anymore you will rip the canvas.

I have asked LV if the glazing comes off or the thread rips, will they fix it and they told me they will repair it and/or reglaze.

Hope this helps!

My Damier canvas held up pretty well for everyday use and it’s been over a year

Funny, I am about to get one myself and asked the boutique sales guy the exact same question yesterday. He said the canvas is durable, but more prone to cracking at the edges. It can be reglazed but never looks as new. It is also more prone to damage if you tend to overstuff.

He also said epi is the most durable leather and best choice if you go full Costanza with your wallet, followed by taiga (which I will be getting).

Epi is REALLY durable. I’ve seen vintage, un-refinished Epi bags that were used harder than the typical TRF’er uses his Rolex, and they were completely fine. Or wait, that doesn’t really prove my point further...

I prefer the Taiga. I’m on my 3rd LV wallet and went standard monogram, Taiga, Taiga.

Which colors have you guys used/handled? I love blue wallets and think the ‘ocean’ Taiga looks awesome, actually thinking about picking it up. The ‘ardoise’ also looks pretty cool.

I’ve owned a lot of Valextra stuff, so Taiga definitely appeals to me.

I have had several pocket organizers from LV. Either way very durable. Epi prob least likely to show wear. Most feel like pleather but it is what it is.

I’d go Epi.

Lately I’m rocking a pga tour moneyclip lol I have about 2k worth of wallets parked in the drawer for this 25 dollar US open moneyclip. Feels right.

I got mine as a bday gift last month. I was debating between monogram eclipse vs epi. Do some search on peopleís pocket organizers after a few years of use, I think then the decision will be quite clear to make. Iíve seen on the Purseforum of someoneís husbandís epi pocket organizer looks as if itís 1 year old although itís been used for a whopping eight years.

Very happy with mine!

Not sure this forum or another.... had a thread like this recently and LV Leather holds up better than canvass. Am a longtime LV collector and yes the leather is more durable overall. The canvass is extremely good, yet eventually the corner-edge melted plastic that keeps the layers together starts to separate. Easy fix at minimal cost for service at any LV store, yet it does happen with canvass after much use.

I mean, if youíre feeling generous I will happily take one of those organizers off your hands and put it to good use. Aside from paying shipping, Iíll show thanks by creating monthly threads touting you as the best man to ever post on TRF.

Just think about it

I have the Taiga Ocean Blue. I had a loose stitch in mine after 4 months of use. Took it back, and they sent it in for repairs free of charge. It's been holding up well since.

You mind snapping a pic of how it's starting to look? Would be great.

I really like the size of it. I wear my wallet in my front pocket, and most times it doesn't even feel it's there.

Yeah I tried to go back to a 6cc billfold from a card holder but I donít like it. I figure the organizer is the best blend of the two.

I would go epi leather if you are going to put it in your pocket with any regularity.
The canvas will last but the creases will wear sooner.

Those deeper blues from LV are super nice! I’m a sucker for blue leather everything, these are tempting.

Thanks. I was eyeing this LV with EPI and large embossed symbol in black. How long have you had it?

I used to use the brown Damier pattern pocket organizer as well. The canvas held up nicely. I think the biggest thing is to just not overstuff them.

Can you please post pics of the inside of your wallet? How long have you had it and how did it hold up?
Looking at he Epi with that Logo, but availability is limited.

Thanks

I've only had it a few months and carry my wallet in my front pockets.
I love this wallet and sort of baby it so if I have slim fitting jeans or traveling for prolonged periods I use my old Coach card holder.
The black is been out of stock everywhere for about the last four months. I snagged this up in Bracelona. It was the last one.
Good hunting.

I wish my LV would wear out so I could justify getting a new one!
