I recently sold my g21 velo. Weeks passed and i found myself wishing i hadnt done that. I realised that comparing the (silver hardware) quality of the zipper line and pull of the older g21 bag vs the newer g12 ones are so different. The newer one has almost cheap grey plastic feel and is not as shiny as the older one. I feel like Balenciaga is trying to cut costs by offering us less superior zipper. Anyone else feels the same?

I can't say that I've noticed a big change in the zipper pulls; however, yes .. Balenciaga has taken away a LOT of the features that were available on the older bags.

> Extra Tassels
> Feet on the bottom (Part-Time)
> Slot - back of Mirror

and so on. Cutting costs, yet raising the prices .. quelle surprise .. they are not the only ones.
