I normally don't carry reissue bags mainly because of the mademoiselle lock and the pain of closing it after getting things in and out of my bag. I'm basically a classic flap girl for practical reason. But I love the look of the reissues and don't want them to be closet bags. I'm totally having trouble with the lock. The lock keeps tilting inward when trying to close....this could be due to the soft leather not providing enough support. As a result, there is a scratch mark on the outer hardware. I know scratches will bound to happen, but if I keep this up, the scratches will get worse and deeper. Ladies with reissues, how do you honestly battle with this lock. I have no idea. Do you already have scratches already?
