Sorry to hear that. It's too bad especially since this is such a functional designI've had mine in RB for about a year. It's holding up well. The glazing has come off a bit because I stuff my wallet. The paint on the front button is coming off a little. Otherwise, from normal daily use, it's been okay. If I was to buy a small wallet again, I would not buy this model though. I will need to take the wallet back for reglazing.
I personally don't own the Victorine, but I can weigh in on these topics. I've owned a pair of Emilies and a Josephine and there was never any issue with the leather button, especially when being mindful of it and making it a habit to turn that side of the wallet towards the soft lining of your bag (takes an extra 2 seconds) so that it doesn't bang up against other items such as keys. As for being a trifold-style wallet, yes, there's a very good chance that it will need to be re-glazed sooner than the accordion or envelope-flap styles because of increase in strain/fatigue along the four key flex points. This was the case with my Josephine, another trifold design.ny new Victorine arrived last week and its gorgeous!
I find myself nervous when I use it though. I'm worried about the glazing and the leather button
For those that have this piece do you use it daily? Mine is with the plain brown
Cerise/Cherry I had a compact Virtuose in cherry before, but it wasn´t compact enough - and the Vic has 6 cc slots instead of just 4, so I´m very happy with it!Oh wow! I didn't realise the empreinte version has been out for 4 months! I'm eyeing the marine rouge Victorine. What colour is yours?
Cerise is lovely! I have the world tour Victorine but would sell it for the empreinte one as I prefer leather and I agree the Victorine is really compact yet functional.Cerise/Cherry I had a compact Virtuose in cherry before, but it wasn´t compact enough - and the Vic has 6 cc slots instead of just 4, so I´m very happy with it!
