I was wondering about the placement of the straps looking weird too because maybe he/she didn't fix it up or unflatten it before taking pics. I'm still waiting on a reply from the seller. It's driving me crazy now! It is supposedly lightly used and maybe the seller isn't really into bags so has no clue? DH doesn't want bad feedback and wants me to pay for it and then send it back once I get it if the seller doesn't agree to just relist itI doesn't look fake to me - it looks lopsided because it is used I think.
