Personally I think L4P is full of label hos (half kidding)...don't get me wrong, I love y'all but there is far better product at most of these price points that flies outside the L4P radar. Also, I think that because many of us live in diverse parts mainly of the USA we are not exposed to some of the options that may be out there. Bottega Veneta is da bomb!Tatum Spyder

I don't get why you say you're a LV collector. Do you just buy wallets and keep them on a shelf?

Watchtoronto as you get older you will discover that everything goes through cycles and even though you may be bummed with LV now put it away and get stoked on another brand and in a yr two or three it will prolly be in the rotation again.

First off, great thread watchtoronto!
It is definitely true that when you own or have an appreciation for an item, you certainly notice it more, whether that item is a piece of LV, a watch, nice car, etc. Louis Vuitton is a great brand, and unfortunately, as men, we don't have many other options with different brands that are of the same quality. Women can choose between LV, Chanel, Hermes, and more. However, as the OP mentioned, the selection for men's hermes is very limited.
I also think that in recent years there has been an influx of people buying Louis Vuitton, because it's "trendy" and prevalent in hip-hop/pop music. People who flock to the brand for this reason are posers, and are most likely wearing fake. I read a statistic that 99% of Louis Vuitton on the street is fake. It's a shocking statistic, but many people want what they can't afford and have no moral dilemma purchasing a fake. I have even seen our forum plagued by some of these fakes, and yes, watchtoronto and I have called the seller of such items out immediately.
While LV may be getting "played-out" keep in mind that most of it is fake, and can be easily spotted by anyone who appreciates the brand. Those who don't appreciate LV won't notice it anyway.
We're currently out of state for the long weekend and this is what our hotel looks like...
To the OP: I know your collection is 100% authentic and you should pride yourself in that.
Furthermore, LV hasn't reached the level of played-out tackiness that Gucci has. It pains me to see people decked out, head-to-toe in fake gucci, or carrying a gucci bag that costs more than their car. I see a lot more posers and $30K millionaires with Gucci than with Louis.
