Yes, I've had my black cherry Candace since February, been carried for probably a couple of months off & on (I rotate my bags). It definitely does have a slight slouch, moreso on one side. I think it is just normal. When I'm carrying it, it isn't visible at all. I keep her stuffed with tissue paper inside the dust bag to maintain shape when not in use.
Unfortunately that seems to be an inherent problem with Candace, at least the medium size.....my small Candace's aren't as prone to the 'side slouch'. I keep a purse insert in my bags just for that reason, to prevent the slouchies. Plus, keep them stuffed when not in use.
I'd be more alert to corner wear because a slouch is easier to 'fix'. I bought both my medium Candace's off ebay and coincidentally both sellers were TPF'ers and the bags were in excellent condition....one did have a bit of a slouch on one side, but I didn't let that bother me a bit since I've seen new ones with slouches.
I have been real lucky with my ebay purchases. I have unknowingly bought items from sellers that I later found out were TPF'ers......and all of the TPF'ers items were in excellent condition.
Has anyone experienced corner wear with their Candace's? I just keep applying the Apple Guarde Conditioner in hopes that won't become a problem.
I found one at the outlets yesterday =) I think mine is the older version because it doesn't have the feet. I love it, I've moved into it already even though I bought it for work. I hope you enjoy yours too =DI took the plunge and purchased a NWT's black Candace. It is the newer version with the feet. I am nervous about the leather though; I thought I read that the leather was nicer on the older Candace bags.
