Just got my YSL tote today in the Coal colour, I love this bag and I also love the subtlety of the gold printed logo. But this looks like it's almost wearing off..... does anyone have the same experience. Should I exchange or leave it as is?

Thanks

Definitely exchange it. Mine's a year old and the gold is not wearing off at all. (See pic). IMG_3523 (1).JPG

Wow. Wish I'd paid more attention to the details when I was in store. So annoying. I'm definitely going to exchange.
Hope you were able to exchange it for a better one!
I bought the same exact tote back a few months ago in September and I've noticed that the printed logo has started to fade; I'm pretty upset about it. In a recent visit to YSL a week ago I asked the SA what can be done about it and was told that nothing can be done about the fading and that I should just be more careful with it... :annoyed: I use the tote on a daily and even though I don't baby it as much compared to other more delicate bags that I have, I don't throw it around either, I'm disappointed and sad.:sad::annoyed:

I did go and exchange it. New picture attached. I'm not too impressed either. I was told this is as good as it gets! Unfortunately, I bought it at a Saint Laurent Boutique. (FYI: I'll never do that again) you can't return anything in the boutique. Exchange or store credit only. I know Saks had better ones. Oh well, lesson learned ..

I don't think this happens just to Saint Laurent bags. It happens to any brand with stamped logos but it shouldn't be wearing off this soon. I have a Saint Laurent Sac De Jour from 2015 and the logo is still perfect. Also i have a Baby Sac De Jour and use it a lot and the silver logo is not fading or wearing off. It must be annoying that this happened to you. I would suggest you stay away from stamped ones if it bothers you. Maybe the embedded logos may be better at least they won't fade.

This is very helpful, thank you. I’ll be going to Saks or a department store for future purchases.
