So the Mahina XL in noir is my HG bag! I got it today but I have a few issues with it. It's pretty much the last bag in Canada and I can't get it from the US (plus it costs more in the US now) so I wanted to see what everyone else's experiences are: 1) Is your leather uniform throughout? I noticed that on the front, the leather is less pebbled and sort of striated, like there are little lines running along it. 2) Is your perforation uniform? On the front, my perforation is very faint, though it shows up in pics. It's totally perfect on the back. Is this normal? The SA told me that like vernis, the Mahina is prone to differences because they only have 1 chance to get it right so some perforations may be deeper and others are fainter, but as long as they fall between a certain range, they are considered sellable and not defective. I'm not sure what to do - this is my HG bag but it cost a lot of $ and there aren't other ones I can choose from. Should I let it go?
