I have always loved them and since I am only 23 I never thought i would be able to justify spending so much so i broke down and bought a besso one even though i am not a fan of fakes, it was beautiful quality. Anyway I ended up buying a VG city a few months back and although i LOVE LOVE LOVE my real bbag, i am surprised by the quality.... I find tha even though i baby it and appleguarded it, it gets scrathed easily, handle and lace gets dirty, and the sealent on the handle edges splits...I even went to the store to look at new bbags and they all this already happening!! On my besso bag, i have not had any problems and i can throw it on the floor and not have to worry at all!!!! Anyone else have these problems? I think the thing that makes me the most mad is the sealent. I have never had a bag do this!! Even ones that cost 20 bucks!!!
