Hi all, just want to see how you gals feel about leather tears in caviar leather, which actually happen quite often. Remember I got a red caviar med. flap with the new chain when I passed by the SCP boutique last month? Well, as most of the chanel bags nowadays that aren't in 100% perfect condition, mine has some leather tears on the side where the leather bend (is the edge of the interior pocket). I tried to take pics to show you but my camera just loses focus when I get too close....I know it is not that noticable unless you actually inspect the bag up close. I know no more red med caviar flap will be in the US, as the Hawaii boutique actually called me Thursday that the reason why they have not received the bag (I waitlisted it back in Januray, and by now all the summer act 2 stuff got to be in) is that Paris CANCELLED their order with no reason given! So, I think I am considered lucky to happen to run into the SCP boutique and saw the bag I have wanted forever on the shelf!! I know I am keeping the bag as I really love the red color and I know I will not be able to exchange or return and there's just no more on the face of earth (ok, maybe just no more red med. caviar in the US..). But I don't know if I am just too picky or what since I have seen lots of caviar bags having the same leather tear issue (the leather is just too hard and stiff so where it bends leather tears occur.) Help me to have a peace of mind plz. would the leather tear issue really bother you that much?
