More on LV

Following on from the closed thread - in complaints corner.

I was chatting to a colleague over lunch - who arrived back from Nice yesterday. He was stopped at Zurich customs - first time in 6 years - and searched.

He was specifically asked if he had anything from LV. He said "It wasn't his style" - which I suspect wasn't the answer the customs guy was after.

Anyway, he wasn't carrying anything - so off he went.

Re: More on LV

Looks like LV is making a campaign or giving an incentive to the customs.

PS: by the way, why closing the thread ?

Re: More on LV

It seems that Customs are more aggressive, they doubled the numbers of "piracy stuff offences". it was 780 in 2009 and 1740 in 2010

The other thread was suppose to be about counterfeits through customs.

Because over its lifespan it went from on topic, to general fashion ethics, to off topic, to chat. After a while, even the mindless chat was struggling. Let's 'ave another go eh

Re: More on LV

It reads :"we do not forgive, we do not forget" it sounds really dangerous to me. It is ok to take a stand about something you believe in, but to me that sounds like extremism.
