difficult zipper

  1. i bought my very first marc jacobs handbag! it is a black blake and i adore it. i bought it from ebay after the experts in this forum verified it as authentic. (thank you!) is it normal for the zippers to be a bit difficult? they dont open and close as easily as i am used to and i am having trouble unzipping and zipping if i am using just one hand. is there anything i can do to make this easier? thanks!
  2. I've noticed on bags with zippers that are concave upwards tend to be harder to pull open. I haven't figured out how to open those up quickly, other than using both hands to open up the zip. But if you mean the zipper is "sticky" you can lubricate it with something like candle wax, lip balm, or the graphite end of a pencil(google search). Hope this helps!

    And congrats on the bag! Love the color...
  3. Congrats on your new MJ!

    I have to agree, the zippers are definitely a bit difficult to use. I think it has to do with the sizing of it. The "teeth" are so large that it's not as easy as one would think. I do feel that over time, with use, it should get easier.

    Don't get discouraged...it's a great bag!
