Well, Update. I received my Large chocolate Muse today. No doubt beautiful bag. The first thing that I noticed after careful inspection is that "there is a thread loose" on the front of the bag, I could live with this. The second thing that I noticed is that one of the metal feet is half coming off. Now, I knew that the loose hand sewn thread was a possibility, but in all the bags that I have bought I have never had a metal foot loose on the bottom of the bag, let alone hanging off. Called NM, and of course they don't have anymore large chocolate bags left. Now I am torn. Do I wait for another large to come along do I get the oversize in chocolate, or do I try the Rive Gauche bag in chocolate? Anybody had any defects with the Rive Gauche?
