Not sure how clear the picture is (sorry). My bag is about 2 years old but I have only recently started using it (almost) continuously for work. Prior to this I would take it out, say, once in 2 months. Is the glaze cracking? The leather on the other side of the zip is smooth and wrinkle free. I don't mind the wrinkling per se (if this is normal for DEs leather). I asked the manager at the LV store - as expected, she gave me the stock normal-wear-and-tear-this-is-where-you-grab-your-purse routine. She made it abundantly clear that I would have to pay for the repairs. What does tPF think - normal wear and tear (if so - why is the leather on the other side of the zip fine)? Will this lead to eventual cracking? Should I do something about it?
