It's finally here!
it is brand new. hardware was protected well.

Overall, it is perfectly shaped. under my detail-obsessed eyes, I got to say it is almost flawless... there is one single needle thread was not tight enough- i fixed it with my little helpers from my tool box very quickly. it seemed the bag went through a rough trip... both packaging box and Chanel box were quite beat up. but bag is fine - thank my SA for packing the bag well.
I am keeping it and will use it as often as I can.
