Depends on how much it bothers you. They are expensive so I do think that you should get a perfect one. How hard was it for you to get? If you are willing to wait for another then I would probaly return

Wow! I have never even checked my woc to see if it was even or not lol. If you have the ability to. Go to a store so that u can check yourself to see if they are even then I say go for it. If there is a waiting list then I would probaly keep it. Totally up to you though.

If you noticed details this small, they will bother you, so take it back and get back on the list for a "perfect" one.

The pocket is fine don't worry about that. Mine is a tiny bit off too, but as long as the stitching matches well, all is good. The CC though I am EXTREMELY picky on and do my very best to find ones that are not lopsided and are in the middle of the diamond as best as possible. However, guess what? :smile: Your CC is not off by very much and you can actually turn the CC a little bit and it won't damage the bag. I figured this out the other day and was soooo happy! My new black caviar WOC I would say out of 1-10, had a 9 in terms of the CC on the front being straight and not crooked. I however wanted it to be a 10 so I took my finger nails and ever so very slightly lifted one side up and one side down and I couldn't believe what I saw! It moved a tiny tiny bit, enough where it is now perfect. The leather is totally fine, no harm done. I don't think it will work if it's seriously lopsided, but if the CC is almost perfect, it works like a charm!!! Probably only works well on caviar though like ours, as I can't imagine it would on lamb, but maybe. Give it a try on your bag and see if it will fix it enough to where you feel more at ease :biggrin:

In regard to the flap, I've noticed all are a little wonky but if you move one side up or down it should even itself out. Unless you took a ruler and found the measurements were actually off?

^I was wondering if it was possible to turn it. OP, I think it looks fine, but if it bothers you, you ought to return it.

I don't see the pocket issue but the CC's are DEFINITELY crooked :tdown: and that's right in the front of the bag - the first thing people would see - I wouldn't keep it. I think you can search and still find another one somewhere. I've seen this particular style pop up a few times on the Auth Finds thread so I'm sure another one is out there somewhere! Sorry this happened to you!

Wow what a great idea!! Hers looks like it's a bit to the right though, not sure crooked but more to the right than left?

I can't totally tell if the CC is in the middle of the diamond because of the circles in the photo. However, to me I believe she will be able to lift one side enough to where it's a lot more even.

In all honesty though, my CC wasn't as lopsided as this so maybe that's why it worked well, but I still believe the OP should give it a good old fashioned try and see what happens ;)

Im so bad i would never have noticed it! I have never even looked at my bags that closely!

Obviously you are a true perfectionist or you wouldnt have noticed. I would return or try exchange as you deserve to have a bad you are 100% happy with. Its not cheap for its size so it needs to be perfect for you!!
