Removing stud from Nordstrom Rack bag

  1. I bought an MJ bag from Nordstrom Rack and it has a metal stud right above the name plate (I suppose to prevent returns).

    My question is, is there a way to remove it. I would rather have a hole there than the stud, I just hate looking at it.

    Anyone been able to remove it?

  2. i make handbags and the studs i use can be removed, if i mess up applying them to the bag. just takes two plyers and twisting them in oposite directions. or you could take it in the cobbler/shoe repair place and i bet they could do it, maybe for free even.
  3. Honestly, Unless you know what you're doing, you might do more damage if you do it yourself. I'd take it to a shoe guy, they have all the tooks and are used to doing crap like this.
  4. Thanks, I'll see if I can take it to a cobbler.
