I purchased the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM tote in NYC recently after wanting it for years–– its classic, timeless design and high quality originally drew me in, and I can honestly say I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase. It's roomy enough for me to take to class since it fits my 13" laptop and a few books along with my wallet, laptop charger, keys, water bottle, and phone. I was originally considering the GM (the biggest size tote LV offers), but I went with the medium size since it's less bulky.
I absolutely love that this tote comes with a pouch that can be detached and used as a wristlet–– it's super handy to have on the go since! The inside pocket of the tote itself is super roomy too. I keep my phone, chapstick, Altoids, and other random stuff in there and it zips without a problem. Every single element of this bag was made perfectly and it's honestly such a high quality that I now see why the price is higher.
I went with the darker Damier pattern but I also love the look of the classic Louis Vuitton monogram. You cannot honestly go wrong when picking the exterior pattern, it's just personal preference–– all are lovely.
I decided to get my initials hot stamped on the handles of my bag (LV does it free of charge!) because some of my friends and classmates have the same bag and I love that I can quickly differentiate between whose bag belongs to who–– I chose gold but there are so many hot stamping color/font options. They told me it would take them 2 hours to do it in store, and when I came back 4 hours later my bag had not been stamped yet. I didn't mind, but they apologized profusely, did it within 10 minutes, and wouldn't let me leave without free Perrier. Such good customer service!
I hope these photos along with my process of getting the tote helps you make a decision on whether or not you'd like to make this investment!
