Okay, I've only been buying since Feb07 and it's really bothering me that it's more often than not that I find some kind of flaw with bags/accessories that I've purchased. Even Items from the full price store. Example 1: when I first got my Katy, there was a mark on the metallic leather part on the front of the bag, I had to return it and get another. Example 2: the first legacy french frame wallet I bought back in March had a huge blob (like blob you would see in chunky nail polish) on the top of the leather near the coin opening part, the locks. I was disgusted, but kept it anyway because I really like the wallet and they were sold out at the time. So during April I ordered 2 more in hopes that one will have the stripe order I wanted and would be flawless. Well one, was bumpy all across the top of the wallet (right above the turnlock) as if something was under it. And the other was rounded off at the bottom When it should be a square, and the stitching was off. Example 3: My new khaki satchel has some stitching that is loose towards the left hand pocket. Example 4: The stitching on my sig clip hobo was very uneven, to the point, that if I didn’t know any better I’d think it was a fake. Return. Example 5: The mandy I ordered look as if though it has been severely use because the leather above the turnlocks were heavily creased. I sent it back, ordered another and the one that came in, looks as if it has stretch marks all down the bottom of the bag. The stretch marks also are lighter than the rest of the bag. So I ordered my THIRD one from a far away store in hopes that the employee would be able to hand pick me a nice one. I'm waiting on that to come in. The Ali I received is the same way. You can say it’s the nature of the leather, but I’ve seen the same bags in great condition. OMG, the list can go on, but I won’t bore you as I’m sure you get the point. It’s frustrating me to write it out, because I’m realizing that with every piece I buy, I’m having to very carefully inspect it. Very carefully inspect it as if I’m buying a bag from a discount store or a store like marshall’s/tj maxx that often gets blemished items. Is it just me or does anyone agree that this SHOULD NOT be necessary when paying full price for a bag? If you've had similar experiences with any of your Coach items, please post up. I'd like to know how frequent this type of stuff happens or if it's just me. TIA.
