loose stitching - is this normal?

Hi Ladies,

I just bought a new classic medium flap in black caviar / SHW from BG in NYC. I originally went to the Chanel store on 57th and was told by the SA they had none available in the city (not true), and they were trying to sell me a floor model that had scratches on the inside (eek!!). I then went to BG across the street, and luckily they had one new bag available.

I didn’t inspect the bag until coming home, and I noticed that a few stitches are ever so slightly loose. I’m not terribly picky, so I will probably be keeping the bag (especially if there is a shortage in NYC), but was wondering if any others have noticed something like this and if it is normal for Chanel bags. It’s very subtle and not visible unless you look very closely, but just wanted some assurance that this is ok. After spending $7k on a bag, I’d want it to be as perfect as possible.
