  1. I have been searching forever for my HG- a 12A red reissue in the 226. When I chanced upon one from Yoogis, I bought it immediately. It was listed as gently used and was a fair price. The bag finally arrived yesterday and I don’t know whether I should return it or not. There are definitely a number of stains on the exterior even though it was listed as “clean.” I emailed LMB to see what could be done and she said that they would have to color it. I’m afraid if she does that then it won’t be the same gorgeous red I initially wanted. It is my HG and hard to find so I am a bit reluctant to part with it, but the stains really get to me.

    If you were me, would you 1) return the bag and keep searching or 2) keep it and send off to LMB for a full treatment (incl. color).

    Would also love to hear from those who have used LMB services for similar scenarios.

  2. I would return. Those stains look unsightly. Would you have paid the same price if you had known about those stains?
     
  3. Return. It wasn't described honestly. I think the condition is quite poor and you'll always notice the stains; they're hard to miss, sadly.

  7. I would return.. if this is your dream color, then to have it re-colored takes that away.

  11. Oh, wow. Surprised and disappointed that Yoogi’s misrepresented the condition of this bag. They’re usually really accurate. It’s a beautiful color, but unless you got this bag for a major steal I would, sadly, suggest you return it.

  14. Return based on principle and also the fact that it SUCKS that you got a bag with stains. Don’t let these people get away with deceit. Keep searching and you will find a great bag!!!!! Don’t settle for less
