I have two suggestions:
Their new year starts with their financial year, which might be July 1 and then hits the shops a couple of months later, which would make sense from a logistics point of view.
Second suggestion is that the bag was produced later than the lock......... meaningless?
^I don't exactly understand what you mean by 'meaningless' but to me it wouldn't be a big deal because I would expect the lock to be made somewhere else than the bag.
Hi, thanks for the clarification . I wouldn't be worried by this detail at all.sorry--i meant do you think its nothing of concern? i bought it from a reseller. not concerned about authenticty but i always wonder where the hell these bags came from -i hate buying this way but i do occasionally
Well, if you can't pin the bag to the seller as the original purchaser, then... In other words, it is a leap of faith when you purchase in this fashion. From what I have seen on the listings thread of tPF, some bags can change hands 3-5 times in 2 years. If you "hate buying this way" then don't if it is going to cause you upset, anguish and misery. It isn't worth the ulcer that you will give yourself. I really mean this and am not saying this to you as a wise ass. In the end, the only things that count, regarding the bag, are authenticity and condition. A bag from one person can be in worse shape than a bag that has changed hands 3 times.sorry--i meant do you think its nothing of concern? i bought it from a reseller. not concerned about authenticty but i always wonder where the hell these bags came from -i hate buying this way but i do occasionally
