I discovered this high end brand back in late 2004 and kinda went hog wild throughout 2005 (bought 3 purses plus misc accessories.) Never considered exotic until my SA offered to place an order. Then when I tried, my SA apologized and said that I was only allowed 1 B per year. 2006 my SA introduced to the SM and asked if a croc order can be placed. SM said yes. Later that year, my SA called and confirmed the order. 2007 get a new SA (old one left.) That new SA could not find any record of my 2006 order. And tried to reorder it for me. But now SM (same one as 2006) will not place the order for whatever reason. What do I do? I've even tried changing colors to something that's currently produced. (A)Wait it out until the SM leaves, (B)kindly remind my SA of my lengthy pursuit or (C)go to a reseller (eg. CDC). My apologies for the long winded post but I just realized last night how long I've been trying to get this bag. I know the SAs prefer that we go through them but when you're in my situation, what do you do? TIA.
