I just bought the Louise style clutch in black patent. It was brand new from the back at Bloomingdale's. Anyway upon further inspection at home, I noticed that the sides on the top where the stitching is, there are cracks in the leather and a few tiny ones in the bottom corner of the bag. I noticed in another store that it happened on the patent crocodile ones too! I'm not sure if I should just not care. The bag was $200 so it's not INSANELY pricey....but still. Has this happened on anyone elses patent Lauren Merkin clutch? I am worried it will get worse the more I use it. What do ya think?
