Disappointed in how my baby cabas is handling wear--

  1. I have only worn the bag for a couple of weeks and already some stitching came out at the bottom. I purchased from NM, but they don't have any more to replace, so they offered for me to return or that they would repair. I said I wanted to keep it, but I am also disappointed in how it is showing scratches--sort of lighter marks from the large silver dangler and just general wear.
     
  2. What color did you get? That's a shame. A member who has the khaki told me the CC charm is peeling/oxidizing on the back side where it rubs against the leather of the bag. The leather itself is fine, as well as the front of charm. She has had her bag less than one month.
     
  3. Hi--I have the black. I guess I will just hav to see it as a positive process:shame:
     
  4. I know the black is easier to get scratches since the leather is distressed.

    I haven't used my bronze one yet but I did notice some tears or cuts on the leather strip that is wrapped around the metal chains. I am not too happy about this and I know this is not only happening on mine since I have seen this problem on at least 3 bronze cabas. I don't know if I am too picky or what but for a bag costing that much I do hope that the leather quality is a little better than that.....but since it is not obvious and the leather on the bag itself is fine I will just kinda ignore those tears on the chain.
     
  5. Uh-oh...just got mine and hoping she lasts forever! (Will post a thread in the next few hours so stay tuned.) It's a pricey bag and I expect quality workmanship through and through.
     
  6. I love the bag and the style and the color, but I also have to be honest chanel quality has gone downhill a little bit...............
     
  7. Or maybe only certain styles have gone downhill? I wonder if the classic bags are also shoddily made. I don't think so.
     
  8. I wonder if you bag is made out of the same soft leather my fav chanel bag is?
    I posted tonite about how I hardly take it out and it just seems to get so marked up.
    I wish I new of something that would be helpful for us :confused1:
    I just hate those marks ( and I'm super careful...darn)
     
  9. Thats very disappointing! Do u think they're doing something about it? i'm sure they got so many complaints about it!! Where's their quality control anyways!
     
  10. scary considering the bags are sooo expensive!!! What is happening to their QC. The LV papillons miroir also have a lot of complaints. *sad*
     
  11. Oooooooooo no. Oh well I still love chanel i just have to be careful with my expensive bags.
     
  12.  
  13. I have the black and been using it quite a lot within the last few weeks that I've had it. seems fine to me.
     
  14. oh nooo. i really wanted a cabas but now i'm rethinking it. is their any color that doesn't have any problems? is it just the bronze ones? (and that is such a beautiful color too!)
     
  15. anytime you buy that type of Chanel leather it's going to mark/scratch, it's just the nature of the leather.
    The loose stitching though isn't normal, I'd have it fixed or replaced ASAP.
    I've never had any quality problems yet.
