I bought a vintage (80’s) made in USA bag and brought it to Coach for repairs. The inner flap pocket was not sewn properly and the turnlock was very stiff. Those repairs came back great but I noticed that they had also replaced the piping on the body of the bag (without me requesting it). I guess they had to do that to be able to sew the inner flap pocket. I have mixed feelings. On one hand, the original piping was getting tatty (wear on the corners) but the new piping is a little “off” vs the original leather. Here are some pics: 1) Here’s the new piping against the original leather. The colour is slightly off but only noticeable under certain lighting. It’s definitely not as soft as original but might soften over time?) 2) Here is the new piping (left) side by side the original piping from the strap (on the right- it was not replaced). The bag now looks great if you don’t inspect the piping color but I feel that it’s less “original” vintage. Would this bother you? Or would you feel that it was great Coach replaced the piping without extra charge?
