i ordered 3 Rogue 36 from the outlet. The discount wasn’t great at all, only 50%off of the retail price. I want to keep only one and I’m having a hard time to decide with one to keep. I’m planning to return 2 and repurchase them when they are offered at a deeper discount. Honestly, every bag has issues. The olive one has an even color, hardware is scratched and the edge paint is cracking. The dark denim one came from a store and it doesn’t have any noticeable defects but I can tell that it was a floor model. The leather of the grey rogue is so smooth and you can see the handle prints on the bag. Despite all these defects I still want to keep one. So, which one would you keep if any?

Dark denim gets my vote. Olive as you said has quality issues so definitely return and try again on that. Gray color is great but I don't like those handle prints from tucking the handles in and being shipped like that. That's just dumb. They need to take notes from Kate Spade packaging department. I just received my bag from their surprise sale and I was very impressed that they inserted a paper cylinder between the handles. Obviously the handles couldn't be tucked inside with this style but they didn't let the bag lay on the handles to prevent exactly the same issue. IMG_20190319_161329251.jpeg

OMG, your bag is so beautiful. The red is so vibrant. What kind of leather is it?

Another vote for Grey.

Chipped hardware and cracked edge paint? That shouldn't even be sold, IMO.

The Dark Denim looks slouchy already. This is a quality I LOVE in the Rogue 36, but my black that I got in 2017 doesn't even look like that yet and it's my most carried bag!

Here is a couple of pics of the olive. If not for the defects, this is one of the most beautiful color combinations that the rogue came out in
