@Bagsbagsbaby I’m so sorry you have issues too! I think that is a really good decision, and if there’s anything wrong with the next I’m done! I have a feeling it may be too delicate for me. Your neverfull is stunning!! I really don’t want another tote type bag as my OTG does a great job, but only for that I would be tempted!My opinion is that the NF is not going to be as delicate. I have decided to keep that one and return speedy.
When I checked the corners of my speedy really carefully (following the discussion on this thread) I can see hairline scuffs/cracks on the canvas next to the piping at two corners in the bag. They are a silver/white colour. Sadly I do not think this is going to be bag that ages well and I’m not happy paying the price they cost for something I’ll be worried to use. I think that putting weight in the bag would be likely to cause further pulling/cracking at the base corners as it’s obviously susceptible to this.
I’m gutted but my NF is absolutely stunning and does not appear to have the same issues. It’s perfect and feel it has a different base to all other NF’s I own. It’s base is harder and flatter than a usual NF, if that makes sense. Almost as if it has a base shaper (that you can buy from third parties to stop base sagging) inbuilt. I suspect LV have done this on purpose to avoid cracking/peeling with use and weight. I think it will be fine and I loved it from the second I saw it, it took my breath away!
I had to chose one bag (of the two) so the decision is at least easy now.
