Are Louis Vuitton Wallets Worth It? - The Sourceity

It’s no surprise that when it comes to luxury, Louis Vuitton is one of the biggest players in the game. Whether you’re buying brand new or considering vintage, investing in an LV wallet can be pricey.

So, you might be wondering, is spending all that money on a wallet really worth it? If quality is what you’re after, then I’d say, yes. Louis Vuitton has been creating iconic pieces since the 1850’s and have earned their place as one of the largest fashion houses in the world because of consistent quality and high production standards.

Of course, part of the cost of an LV wallet is status, as toting the iconic monogram is sure to be recognized. The brand maintains its exclusivity by keeping stock of each style limited, even further creating demand and maintaining the brand as an elusive status symbol. Beyond that, you’re also investing in quality materials, durability and the likelihood of high resale value.

A single piece can go through 300 stages of review before completion. Plus, despite the ever growing world of technology, Louis Vuitton’s wallets are all handmade. In trying to justify a purchase, I always think of cost per wear. Think of how many times you reach for your wallet on any given day. It’s a staple piece that can be used solo, tucked under an arm or, versatile enough that it can be moved from bag to bag.

Depending on the style, you can also add a chain to a lot of the LV wallets. Easily turn your once wallet into a shoulder or cross body bag, making them even more practical with an added bang for your buck. Small but substantial, I think it’s money well spent, especially for a first designer piece.
