Hi All, happy New Year! This is my first post to The Purse Forum... I'm curious about the quality issues I've been having with my recent Burberry purchases, and I'm wondering if I'm not alone, or if I've just had very bad beginner's luck! Keep in mind, I'm new to the brand, having known about it for a long time, but not purchasing until now. I don't mean to be a downer here -- I ADORE the look and (what I thought to be) the quality of the Burberry brand -- but my list of issues are growing to include: an umbrella bought at Burberry.com which had a missing/defective snap that I had sent back, a glove with a blown out seam that now needs to be fixed, and a Mini Manor bag that has already been replaced once due to the nickel coating on the feet chipping off within only TWO weeks of use. I also own a shawl with a shimmery/metallic loose knit that I have to treat with the utmost respect, because if I don't the weave pulls out (VERY easily I might add) therefore misshaping it. Bad luck... or... should I be worried about making future Burberry purchases? Thanks in advance for your advice/input on this matter!
