Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Souple

Does anyone’s SDJ’s double handles seem to droop? I recently acquired a preloved piece in the size baby and the front handle seems to fall forward
I have had mine (also baby size) since 2017 and it is my most used bag, as I love the color and the style. I haven’t noticed any drooping of the handles and my bag gets lots of use. That being said, I am really careful with it and never toss it around. I carry it crossbody and by the handles.

Your bag is gorgeous! I recently got the preloved piece for a steal! But clearly understood why it was priced the way it was upon arrival. I think I’ll just go the new from boutique route seeing how great it looks when properly taken care of. The handles are cracking and misshapen.

This sounds like a good plan! My bag is in great condition and no cracking on the handles and it also doesn’t slouch at all. I have to say it has held up beautifully and I would buy the same bag again! I absolutely love it! Enjoy whatever you decide to purchase.

Thank you! I returned this piece and will just save up towards a new one in boutique. I do see that this seasons SDJ souple comes with metal feet.
 
Can anyone confirm when the SDJ souple started coming with metal feet? I was in the boutique yesterday and the SA said he thought the souple started coming with metal feet studs a few years ago, but this thread suggests it was earlier this year. I much prefer them to the original leather feet. I'm asking because I may go the preloved route.

Also can anyone else comment on the quality and how the glazing holds up in general? A little nervous after seeing a post here where the glazing on the handles was cracking after one month of use.

I have to say though, I am loving this bag after having tried it on in the boutique!

I purchased my baby SDJ supple grained leather in 2021 from the boutique and it has leather feet. This is one of my more used bags and it has held up very well. I haven’t babied it and haven’t had any issues with glazing on the handle or anywhere else on the bag. I recently purchased the YSL Lou camera bag in different leather and it was scratched after the first wear. I would recommend the SDJ supple grained leather.

Thank you for the reply, Panlove! That helps 👍

I believe they came out with the metal feel in the last year. To be honest, I prefer the leather feet, as I don’t have to worry about it scratching anything, especially when putting it in my car. I’ve had my souple baby size since 2017 and it is my most used bag. It’s in red. The glazing and the bag still looks brand new. That being said, I do take care of my bags. Stuffed and covered if I’m not using it and I don’t use it in the rain. Love the bag. Hope you get it and enjoy it. The feet would not be deal breaker for me either way! There is a picture of mine a few posts up from this.

It's a beautiful bag you have there, Luvnlife! Thanks for the input on the leather feet, as well.
 
Hi, I'm looking into buying a SDJ supple probably in baby, has anyone had one for a while and could share how they hold up as I have heard they slouch - which is fine as long as its not like extreme - but i'm not sure how much they do. (I don't use my bags all that often anyway so hopefully that should alleviate some of it?)

I’ve had my baby SDJ supple for about 3-4 years. It’s my most used bag. I used to be much better about keeping it stuffed when not in use but I use it so often I’ve been lazy about doing so. Mine does not slouch. Such a great bag and worth the price given how much I’ve used it.

I bought the baby supple red color in 2017 and still love it. I probably used it everyday for the last 5 years and now switch off with a Fendi mini peekaboo. The baby is still in perfect condition with no slouching. I do take care of my bags and would purchase this again. Love it!!!!
