I know T&D have the best bals (from what I've read on here). I just find it easier to go through 1 person.

What do you bal experts think of this?

If I am allowed to be honest, I feel like the leather looks a bit stiff and the Rose Gold looks a bit too rosy, if you know what I mean.
Assuming that this is a city, because of the short shoulder strap, then I can tell you that the front zipper is completely off! Instead of having that raindrop shaped leather piece on the front zipper, there should be tassels attached. Also on each end of the bag (where the bag can be zipped shut) There should also be tassels. They too are missing!
For a bal lover I have to be honest with you.. I would not purchase this bag. If you want something similar ask the T&D about a Seigle City with Rose Gold Hardware, or try looking around for a City in Noix with Rose Gold, but I wouldn't go wasting your money on this Bal.

Maybe I am being a bit too picky and harsh, but thats my opinion. The boys really have the best Bal's, and their Seigle leather is a great batch.

Hope I could help and didn't seem too nasty

GIANT HARDWARE PIECES SHOULD HAVE THE ZIPPER PULLTAB. only RH has tassels. (I don't mean this to sound like I'm yelling at you PrincessBird, I just don't want people to get confused. )

Also, Noix was released in F/W 2009, RGGH wasn't released until 2010.
A Noix rose gold bag does not exist, it would be a franken bag.

Though, jacky's rggh bag's hardware is way off. Go for t&d on that one.

The bag isn't really structured but the chain follows the bag pretty well so I guess I'd say it was straight.

I'll try to do a Mod pic later. LOVE LOVE this bag!

hahaha shoot shoot shoot! I got that totally mixed it up! SOOOORRY!
But T&D (as far as I am aware) still have Noix leather and if you ask they will put Rose Gold Hardware on it!
And the Seigle is very similar to the color you are showing.

Ok. So, I have inspected my Cirrum MM in Lin from J. The lining is spot on and so is the color of the bag and the glaze. However, the handles are a good 2 inches too long and the bag heightwise is a good two inches too long. It's as if this were a GM instead of a MM. Otherwise the bag is gorgeous but these details will really bother me. Should I send back? I feel like J gets mad when you send back as I sent a bag back from my last order. What should I do??

Thanks PrincessBird, baglovinequine, devon!

Making me reconsider now - thanks for your honest opinion! Most people here won't know the difference but I hate carrying bags that are off and this one seems REALLY off. Saw a lady today with an LV arsty MM in Monogram. Made me want that too!

Haha I can never make up my mind :/

Honestly.... I'm not sure if it's worth sending back as the bag is not damaged or extremely off, I mean you'll have to send it back and you'll probably get only a discount so you'd never get your full money back. You can always try selling it on ioffer or craigs list... I sold two of my bags on ioffer and it worked out for me.

I would like to know if any ever had any problems with others on bagswap? I paid for a bag and got a tracking number that's not working. Yes, I emailed the other bagswapper and no response now

What do I do?
