As i told u earlier i spotted a chelsea leather satchel at the outlet in chocolate. It is from the retail as it has the tag attached to it but they have cut the price $398 and written $199 and with additional discount it ended at a selling price of $159. Well long story short i did get the bag but once i brought it home and looked closely i noticed that the sides of the bag has a leather color slightly lighter than the front and back of the bag .It seems that that sides were from a different piece of leather and the front and back from another.I called the outlet and asked if they have any more of these but they told me it was the last one.All in all the bag is very pretty. Do u think it is a flaw in this bag or does this variation in leather does occur in bags? thanks for the input.
