I already saw another TPFer post a photo of their bag where the leather was separating. This is the first day I used my bag and the black coating is chipping. I asked if it would chip in the store because i was worried that it's not traditional gold or silver and I figured it was coated and i was assured it wouldn't. My previous YSL purchase the SL1 sunglasses were horribly designed. The way the folded in crushed them and made them loose and crooked. I hope you can see it in the photo.
