My chocolate shopper tote arrived yesterday, and I am a little irritated. I was able to exchange my blanc pocket for this bag and pay the difference when I noticed that the stitching on one of the back seams of the blanc pocket seemed a bit "off"...it took me three weeks to even see it, but along one back seam the stitching moved toward the piping and was not parallel. So they sent out the shopper and I haven't really gone over it with a fine tooth comb YET, but I notice that the front pocket seams are also off. The stitching on the left moves away from the grommet, while the stitching on the right moves toward the grommet, and notice how the right grommet is placed exactly in the corner while the left grommet is "set in" from the edge of the pocket. Call me crazy, but shouldn't I be able to have a bag with CORRECT seam lines on a $2000 bag??? I have now spent almost $100 in shipping and return shipping on these bags, and I have to return yet another one. That makes three defective Chloe bags for me thus far! If you consider the stitching a defect, and for the price I am thinking yes. Chloe NY has nothing in stock that I want to exchange for, so I am feeling a bit aggravated with their policies right now. Am I making a big deal out of nothing? EDIT: Also the leather piece that loops through the gold hardware and connects to the shoulder strap on the right side is a different color than the rest of the leather on the bag. Is this part of the "charm" of the bag (because it's not like that on the other three sections), or is this just sloppiness on Chloe's part?
