    I went a little RM crazy some months back. I haven't worn some yet as I am saving them for Fall/winter.

    I didn't notice any QA issues, but have heard that you really need to check out a new bag when you get it.

    Also I think that RM is aware and working on all these issues. I think its true that the demand just exploded and quality took a hit.

    The bags are wonderful and the price is right. I am on a ban but keep looking for the resort pictures.

    I hear what you are saying but I've got to say that a lot of those dissatisfied people can be attributed to something akin to a domino effect. Lets just hypothetically take one or two unnamed ladies who are incredibly anal. They go online and post about "defects" "imperfections" and "flaws". In "certain" unnamed online communities, these kinds of things can (and have) been blown out of proportion and sooner than later, you have legions of women professing their bag to be defective or imperfect, whereas if these same women had not been subjected to the anal rantings of some people, they would have been perfectly happy with the same bag :rolleyes:

    Im no expert by any means but I can say I have owned over 20 RM bags/pieces. I was happy with all of them. Some had leather that was distressed or variable and did not match all the way around but I dont expect leather bags to match all the way around because we are talking about leather; leather is inherently variable. I have bags from Marc Jacobs to Prada and of course RM; I dont expect any of them to have perfectly matched, grain for grain identical leather...If I wanted something like that, I would go find myself a pleather bag made of plastic leather, smooth and processed all the way around...perfectly

    Anyhoo, just my two and a half shillings. I hope your bag came and that you love it immensely! =)

    I hear hautelook always has a pretty sizable collection of RM bags. I look forward to their next sale


    Edit to add: Here is my favorite RM bag ever, the black basketweave MAM. The panels dont match, the front and back have different grains (the front is completely smooth, the back is extremely pebbled and the sides variable pebbling), and I think its awesome! My bag is the bomb; its awesome in every way and not defective, as some other might contend. The issue here is just understanding how leather is; its made from animals, its typically not uniform, and it varies...this is the beauty of buying things constructed from leather, IMO. =)

    Today i received a forest green MAB i recently bought (off of ebay). Due to my other RM bags , i questioned its authenticity. The leather was hard and as you said "not pettable". i was told due to it being originally bought at a sample sale that is why... im not upset because of the leather im sad because i bid late at night and thought it was a MAM and it wasnt its a MAB and its soooo big on me.. Know anyone who would buy it or trade for a mini?

    Im sorry to hear that Tara! The MAB is a big bag no doubt but it can be used for a lot of things. Do you go to school? It makes a great school bag! Also, a MAB works great when you want to carry all your essentials but also something like a sweater or cardigan as well, to use for later when it gets cold. However, if you are really not in love with it maybe the seller will let you return it. It doesn't hurt to ask. =)

    I have a couple of RM that I love. Regarding defects: the descriptions and photos I've seen show obvious, non-anal defects.

    I don't own any RM bags... but I agree with Gungy. I actually prefer that the leather on my bag not to be uniform (my Jimmy Choo's that way). The different grain actually gives the bag a bit more texture and character.

    I haven't had problems with my MAB

    I throw her (in a good way!) from my back seat in my car to the passengers seat, from my bed to my floor, she's holding really well!

    That's one thing I love about RM, the quality is definetly worth it!
