Hi!
I have had my Saddle Bag for less than a year and there is obvious discolouration and tarnishing on the CD due to the guitar strap hooks constantly rubbing against each other. It’s on the inside of the strap hooks as well but hard to notice and capture.
I’ve hardly used the bag in the last 6 months. I store the bag and strap separately in their individual dust bags.
Is that something that anybody else has experienced with their bag over time?
I have a Lady Dior too and have had it for longer but haven’t experienced any problems so far.
I’ve contacted my SA and she said they’ve never had a problem before and is willing to send it to HongKong for repairs.

It looks like the strap clasp rubbed the gold-colour plating off of the metal. They can replace the hardware for you.

You're not alone. I have the same problem and I've only had mine for like two months now... but maybe it's because I always carry the bag cross-body with the strap. Plus I am kinda lazy, so I just leave the strap attached to the bag all the time. I do think that this problem is common; I've seen other owners talking about this on different websites/communities. As for fixing the problem, try taking it to the store! The store manager told me that such problem could arise, and in such case, the metal hardware could be replaced.
