New Louis Vuitton C-130 shaped bag is a whopping $39k

| April 9, 2021

Looking for that perfect accessory for your overpriced designer flight jacket, then Louis Vuitton has you covered. It’s just gonna cost you a bit. For the low, low price of $39,000, you can be the envy of all the ladies at the O Club. For comparison’s sake, a new O-1 (who could actually be flying a real C-130) makes about that much a year.

The designer though was called out on Twitter for a past comment that’s very timely.

I think this is a lot like L. Ron Hubbard saying “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” Some people like to say the quiet part loud.

    GoFundMe soon

    Uhm, no. Much as I do like all things C-130, must pass on this one. Yeah, because the designer said something disparaging about consumers, sure, that’s it. The fact that it’s covered with advertising for somebody and costs almost twice as much as my first house is irrelevant.

    However, if one of y’all wants to send one to me to add to the collection of assorted memorabilia, I will find space for it. Somewhere. Just not in public view. Folks ’round here just would not understand it either.

    $39K will still buy a nice used pickup truck in good condition, I assume the Louis Vuitton C-17 bag will go for at least $70K!

    • David says:

      39k only buys a nice USED pickup… MSRP on a new 3/4 ton is about $35k. Unless you really really have to haul a LOT (which most people don’t) anything much higher isn’t a real truck, it’s a leather pimpmobile with a crew cab.

      Personally, I would think that anyone willing to spend almost 40 grand on a handbag DESERVES confiscatory tax rates. But I am a bit of a puritan on such things.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        What blows my mind is what people spend for what I think of as a fancy-pants suburban wannabe Cowboy Special! I myself am a pickup truck junkie, but I prefer to keep it to essentials, I DON’T NEED the automatic tailgate, automatic sidesteps, “wonder-wompus” fancy lights, some to the point where they make their trucks look like they plowed into a Casino sign on the Las Vegas Strip and drove home with it,…

          think I will stick with my ’78, even if it did crack a radiator tank yesterday.

            My dad’s daily driver all summer is a 64 Chev C10. People look at him like he’s nuts throwing tires and everything else in the bed. “It’s a truck! I’m gonna use it like a truck.” He says.

    I would rather just have the real plane in my driveway, thank you.

  6. Skyjumper says:

    Yeah, but can you jump from it.

    More than a few times I boarded it but didn’t land with it. Good times! (smile)

    A little something to get your juices going this morning..(along with a good cup of joe).

  7. The Stranger says:

    Hmm, maybe if the designer mounts the engines upside down?

      Shots fired…

        At least this design of bag CAN land on a carrier deck.

        Standing by for return fire. We may have flown into a danger zone. Someone could lose that loving feeling for us, go all Maverick and want to cook our Goose. Better put these kinda comments on Ice, man! 😛


        • The Stranger says:

          Oh crap. We all know the Bunny of the Gun won’t ever let THAT go. Well, congratulations, Junior. I’ll hoist a frosty Yuengling in your honor at some point this weekend.

    Weird with a very big beard…
    Why ANYONE would want to pay thirty seven grand(let alone carry and be seen with something like this?!) is entirely beyond me.
    No two ways about it – this ‘thing’ is a hundred miles beyond FUGLY!! However and to it’s credit; it’s a great illustration of ‘a fool and their money are soon parted’….

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      IMHO stuff like that is made for people who have FAR more money than they do brains!

    I am in the wrong line of work.

  10. Only Army Mom says:

    The Chinese knock-offs will soon be seen in urban enclaves. I swear these designers make this ridiculous crap, then make their money by contracting the same sweat shops which make the $39K version to make “the knock-offs”.

    I’ve noted the same complete lack of taste at both extreme ends of the economic spectrum. Go figure.

  11. ChipNASA says:

    Yeah, no, I’d only buy one if it smelled like old canvas, piss, vomit, hydraulic fluid and JP-4.
    Oh and it would have to come in OD Green.
    Oh and then maybe I’d have to have it as a CCW bag and it would have to have at least one mini GAU-12 Equalizer and probably a mini 105 mm cannon.
    THEN it *might* be worth it.

  12. rgr769 says:

    The price tag on this item makes those 800 dollar toilet seats look like a bargain.

    I flew C-130s during Operation Dessert Stromboli. I am sure that I could impress one of those ladies to be wife number 100. I can not wait to get her money.
