iirc, this shade of blue was for summer 2013. because Prada and Burberry also released a similar shade of blue for their male wallet. and coincidentally, the logo for both brands were metal.
and surprisingly for Prada and Burberry, this shade of blue was also sold out worldwide within weeks...

many people in purseforum are looking for this shade of blue.for BV male wallet

when I cant get the blue...I went for two-tone instead and a unusual combo...brown+soft purple, never regret it, cuz till now I haven't bump another guy with the same BV as me.

I be honest with you... many BV lovers will adore your wallet ^.^ and I'm one of them...even thou I already have one lolx

get one thru those MO... not REALLY that ex tbh... I got mine for only $550...if in SG, it will easily set me back by another $300-400

The wallet I bought thru MO this year May.

for BV...one thing to take note is the skin. for basic male intercciato wallets, there are two types:
- lamb skin (nappa)
- calf skin

BV nappa wallets are generally lighter in weight and softer in build. the colour shading is also softer.
it feels soft when you gently slide your fingers over the surface.

BV Calf leather wallets are slightly heavier and sturdier in build calf leather is thicker, therefore the wallet is more difficult to bend compared to nappa leather. colour shading will tend to be stronger and more striking than nappa leather.
it feels slightly rougher when you slide your fingers over the surface.

i think if u join the MO and forgo the VAT its still cheaper than local. its abt $520 vs local $680. colors varies countries to countries i think, the red is not bad also.. but dunno can a man carry off that color anot.

if not i see alot of people sweeping mcm wallets in hongkong also, that brand is doing a mini revival man...

Go for it =)

before i settled for BV, i was looking at several brands. Prada, Burberry, LV, Gucci, Bally, AD. and I even went to the extend to do in-depth research about each brand, the feedback by users and the durability of their wallets.

Plus, BV design is not as loud as other brands like LV or Gucci, whereby the logos are imprinted all over the wallet (except for certain models...) only people who sees it, knows it. General public won't give it a 2nd or 3rd or 4th look. tested and proven when I went to countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.

BV has a few shades of red. tbh, its best to head down to a BV boutique and personally see the colours by your own eyes. I totally do not trust the colour contrast in the BV website.

Here are some of the designs in red:







-----------------------------------------------------------------------

tbh, MCM is only big in Asia Pacific countries like HK and China. In europe, Australia and US, they are not that popular.

The only reason why we see so many asians sporting MCM bags is K-POP. don't forget that MCM is a Korean company, i am sure they must have spent millions and millions of dollars on getting those K-pop celebrities and K-dramas to endorse their products.
