Definitely write to the company and see what they say. i believe they will do something if that's a defect.Loove your backpack!!!!
I got my bucket bag today but sadly it looks like they dropped a bit of excess glue or something on the purse. It's not huge but it's noticeable. I know the bag isn't supposed to be perfect but I'd really like all the marks on the bag to be put on there by me. I'm going to write to the company but not sure if they can exchange for a new piece. Has anyone tried before?
you will always get better quality buying direct from italy. you pay for the label and the quality isn't there on mass produced branded items anymore. only the fools and the desperate to appear more rich than they are pay for the labels still. I just took delivery of a italian leather backpack, hand crafted, not machine and the quality outweighs all of my designer bags that cost 10x the price, even back when the brands stood for quality ( grandad LV travel trunks ) the only draw back is the design of the straps being thin when they are separated to wear as a backpack, due to thinness, they cause some digging and the zipper sides will no doubt rub against bare skin in the summer.Hi fellow MG backpackers,
I'm not sure whether I am allowed to make comparisons to another brand here, but I came across a leather backpack from a small Italian brand, Gianni Notaro, in Japan and instantly fell in love! The structured leather in addition to the four metal feet holds its shape well, and the drawstring + magnetic closure are sturdy. It looks well-made down to the last detail, not to mention that it is half the price of MGs.
Size wise, it is slightly larger than the mini-bucket but it fits quite a bit in there.
I like MG's Cammello colour, but I personally prefer this rich chocolate brown color because it just looks more....for lack of a better word....luxurious!
Don't get me wrong! I am a MG fan, but I do think that this is comparable if not better (*gasp*) than MGs simply because it'll hold its shape, and the leather is not as slouchy.
Hm I am having trouble uploading pictures of the handbag. Here's a link to the picture on Google+
What do you think, fellow MG lovers?
