I've been drooling over the black mini MAC with black hardware but it seems a lot of people have had quality issues. Does anyone own the bag I'm speaking of? How do you like it? Any quality issues?

That's what I was afraid of hearing. I'm not a fan of buying handbags from a designer with a reputable name only to have quality issues :/
While RM's quality is not as good as it once was, I think some things tend to wear no matter what the designer (black hw, metallic leather)...it's often just a matter of time.

I have a MAM with gunmetal HW and no issues with that. Could you get the bag you want with silver or gunmetal HW?

I had issues with one of the early RM gunmetal bags peeling, but a more recent one I have has had no issues. I agree that gunmetal is a good choice/alternative to the black hardware.

I think black is a good idea as it kind of hides bad quality leather but knock on wood the quality will pick up!

I really like the black hardware because it suits my style, I'm still thinking I'll get it just because it'll get rotated with other bags so hopefully I won't have any issues

+1 on the gunmetal hw instead, I also have a MAM with GMHW and after much much use, it still looks perfect! Coincidentally I am also using it today haha.
