I requested for no field in any respect for something because of concern of customs, however fortunately Aaron despatched the field for the purse, YESSS IS IT EVER BEAUTIFUL.


NOTE: I most likely spent two months completely different luggage and I requested Aaron about too many luggage to depend so I cannot add any of this to the timeline. All I can say is Aaron has the persistence of a saint, I’m fairly certain he thought I might by no means purchase something.

High quality 9/10

  • This bag is made with calfskin leather-based and the leather-based is embossed, since this can be a structured bag it feels stiff. It feels good to the contact although it’s a structured bag. That is from orange sofa and the information talked about it’s “authentic leather-based model”.

  • The stitching is neat all through the complete bag together with the strap. The {hardware} appears to be of excellent high quality though you possibly can solely actually inform with put on and tear.

  • The pivoting YSL fastening opens easily however I’ve some hassle closing it again, this has nothing to do with the standard of the bag, I presume it could shut simpler in the event you push it in when there’s stuff contained in the bag.

  • The strap feels slightly flimsy and/or too skinny, though I believe that is the case with the auth as nicely (-.5).

  • Now, the odor. SMELL. I am accustomed to manufacturing unit smells since I purchase plenty of stuff from AE. That was my least favorite a part of opening the field. The manufacturing unit/chemical odor is overwhelmingly robust. I can’t odor the leather-based due to how robust the odor is. Stiff/embossed leather-based is handled and this one isn’t any completely different as nicely, which most likely makes it worse, I’ll must air this bag out for just a few days till I can deal with having it near me. (-.5).


  • OK, I’ve to say I’m far more impressed with the field and packaging than with the bag, that’s to not say I don’t love the bag, however I LOVE packing containers most likely greater than I really like purses. That was severely the spotlight of my buy. Perhaps I will begin shopping for undesirable packing containers from sellers??? I simply love all of the wrappings and papers and every thing that comes with shopping for a pleasant merchandise. I don’t understand how correct it’s in comparison with the auth however that isn’t actually vital to me.

Accuracy 9.0/10


  • Measurements are correct, I measured 24,5 X 20 X 11,5 CM which is what’s listed for the auth. The deal with drop is 7 CM, the deal with additionally sits correctly just like the auth. The strap drop is 50 CM.

  • The leather-based texture appears an identical to the auth, I can’t see any points with it (take into account I’ve not held an auth).

  • The colour is correct, black is difficult to get incorrect. The inside appears correct in comparison with auth photos and feels good to the contact, the colour of the inside matches the auth based mostly on photos.

  • The {hardware} measurement and tone look spot on together with the YSL metallic fastening, the ft and sides. The engraving has simply the correct amount of sharpness.


  • I don’t know what the width measurement on the prime portion of the bag is on the auth however from trying on the photos you possibly can see the highest is narrower than the underside. This isn’t as noticeable on this rep, I measure 23.8CM on the prime so I’m taking -1 simply from eyeballing the variations.

  • The strap is skinny BUT I can’t discover the strap width on any web sites. It is perhaps the proper width so I’m not taking any factors for that.

  • I personally suppose there’s nothing calloutable on this bag even when held subsequent to an auth. There’s zero likelihood of you getting known as out on this out within the wild based mostly on the accuracy, in the event you do get known as out it’s as a result of somebody is being salty.

Satisfaction 10/10

  • Even when this bag wasn’t that correct, I wouldn’t care. It’s a lovely bag. I really like structured luggage and my luggage are both white or black with GHW so this one was no completely different, it matches all my outfits as every thing I put on is low-key nude, white or black.

  • If I’m being sincere, receiving this bag and opening the field made me understand {that a} purse is a purse and a model is only a model. I by no means purchased designer purses and this made me understand there’s nothing particular to it. Don’t get me incorrect, I’m completely in love with it as a result of its form, color and measurement is what I used to be on the lookout for, this can be a little more durable to do when you’re looking for no-name leather-based purses, though I’ve discovered some nice inexpensive Italian leather-based manufacturers that I’ll undoubtedly be buying from (e.g. Cuoieria Fiorentina). This was a good way to return to that realization as a result of I spared myself spending hundreds of {dollars} on one thing and spiraling into an existential disaster as a result of that is how I roll.

  • I’ll most likely be sporting this each time I am going out and I don’t know if I’ll be buying plenty of different luggage, I’m a “one bag” kind of individual. I’m not used to smaller purses however I’ve no motive to hold a giant half-empty bag round. I purchased this whereas ready for a Birkin 35 from Steven and I don’t remorse it!

Service and/or Communication 10/10

  • I can’t start to inform you how affected person Aaron should be. I believe I began asking him for costs and inventory on various things in November and I lastly bought what I needed mid January. I’m fairly certain sooner or later he gave up on me shopping for something however he ALWAYS answered my questions throughout the day or the following day. The one minor problem I had is in the event you ask if one thing is in inventory and he checks and it’s not in inventory, he doesn’t at all times inform you, you must remind him, and I simply felt like I used to be being a ache however that’s simply me.

  • I realized that no reply = not in inventory in order that made issues simpler. He’s additionally sincere in regards to the high quality of things from completely different factories, I used to be eyeing a Chanel pockets on sale and he let me know that the standard was so-so as a substitute of attempting to make the sale, that could be a huge plus in my books.

  • BONUS: I used to be going to purchase a pockets from a non-TS after he shipped my haul, I imagine I had requested him a couple of comparable or the identical pockets and I figured there was no inventory so earlier than I pulled the set off with the non-TS I despatched him the images once more and talked about a vendor mentioned there was inventory for the merchandise and let him know I’d favor to simply purchase from him once more. He requested how a lot I obtained quoted after which matched the value and mentioned he’d discover it for me so I simply went with him as a substitute! That is throughout CNY so I don’t know if he’ll ultimately be capable of discover it with any factories however at this level even when he doesn’t I’ll simply decide one thing else!

  • As a lot as I don’t plan on shopping for a number of purses, I believe the rest I’m on the lookout for I’ll simply get from him, the standard of his service is difficult to beat!
