Well-The Greatly anticipated MAXI arrived today. The one that I was awake for 2 nights over due to the fact that I could not decide on which one to get and finally decided on the MAXI Lambskin since TPFer's said it was far more structured/still that even the New Caviar. I waited with baited breath all day by the door and even cancalled my massage appointment for fear I would not be home when it arrived and called Fed Ex when it did not arrive only to be told that it arrived an hour late and would be to me by 7pm todayI was so excited that is until I opened it and quickly loaded it up due to the fact that other members had had quaity issues w/ the Flaps Flipping up and flying out (I asked my SA to please check for this problem and to load my bag before sending it just to avoid a problem and she assured me she did)
Well,it does more than flip,it wiggles,it curls,it wavesand it sinks in the middle!!! I am so disappointed and if that is not enough the leather through the strap had risen out of one of the chian links with no way to get it back in-WHAT IS WRONG WITH CHANEL!!!This is a design problem and should have been checked for proportions and performance on the Trial bags. I am sending it back- I really believe that within 6 months this will be the Laziest ,slouchiest bag and way too messy to want to carry without enduring:shame:
When, I called my SA she was out and another SA spoke to me and was not shocked at all and just agreed like she had heard this already-so disappointing for the SA's & for the Customers- but this bag will never wear beautifully to become a Vintage Classic-phooey!!!
Here are the pics- the side one best shows how warbled the whole bag was in addition to a soft indentation that ran ike a line acrocc the front of the bag.
