I received a speedy 30b in monogram that had leather on both sides that looked like yours. I sent it back.

Hi there! I just purchased an On the Go tote from the By the Pool collection last week. I recently noticed that the bottom of the bag is not perfectly aligned.

Would you return this tote to the boutique? I don’t mind it so much, but would hate having issues selling it later if it’s perceived as fake because of the misalignment.

Thank you!

This wouldn't bother me at all. It looks good!

In case anyone cares for an update, I did call client services and they couldn't confirm stock at my nearby store and recommended that I just ship back for an exchange. Took about 1.5 weeks. Shipped back on the 25th, received my new perfect PA yesterday On the plus side I had time to wait for my Samorga insert to arrive.
Congrats! Now this sounds like a happy ending from a fairy tale. :smile:
As for my story,, I have a bag I need to return because I just can't stomach a wonky bag at $3K. I wish I could have another bag sent to me like you, but unfortunately it's a LE and sold out.:sad:

This was either cut from around the edge of the cowhide, or wasn’t handled well in the warehouse and got accidentally folded. Either way, it is a hard no. Unacceptable.

Received my Empreinte Neo Noe , when I opened the dust bag the tassels were completely bent:sad: other then that, it’s beautiful ! Will the bend come out since it’s that pebbled leather ?

Also, could you please check if everything’s okay? Stitching, hardware? It feels like the hardware / clasp is kinda dark on the inside … :sad: i am so worried because this is my first piece

I don't see anything that would be a dealbreaker. As for the stain, I would wipe it with an everything-free baby wipe. It looks as if someone's nose touched it while smelling the leather :smile: that can leave a mark like that. But it certainly will even out with time as the leather darkens and gets in contact with more and more hand oils.
