I remeber in the early 90's the Fendi logo bag were real popular. I had friends that bought one and they fell apart very easily, this stopped me from buying them. Strings would be hanging off of them. They were the real Fendi, not fakes. I am not surprised that some are having problems with the quality of your bags. If they don't wear well, take them bag if you can. I was having a moment were I was actually considering a spy bag, and I was reading some old threads about people having problems with them not wearing well. I decided to try another designer.
