this beauty, 45 pounds english sterling, and after 2 months of wear it is almost useless.
firstly the strap totally ripped off when i was riding my bike as it slightly caught on something, then the zip come off because of that.
I'm so so annoyed, but at the same time i loved it so much, I'm not sure whether to get another one.
Anyone else had problems like this before?
And give your feedback on whether i should buy another

Buy another and be a little more careful with it?

It sounds like it more broke because of it catching on something than normal wear and tear.

If it did fall apart from normal use, go back to where you got it from and see if they'll do anything about it. They might not do anything but they may give you a new one, or get it repaired or something like that.

@Aurora ..

i somehow doubt that.
there was no warranty or guarantee or anything so i think getting a new one is out of the question.
and i would suggest that the catching was the reason, if i hadnt done the sam with many of my other bags, and they have lasted over a year, with a lot of hard wear.
i think id quite like this one

That one looks really nice!

You should still try to do that.
Call first maybe and ask about it? Stores won't want a bad customer service rep so they'll usually try to help or at least be really nice about it.

I had a pair of shoes a while ago that broke when I was wearing them and they just exchanged them with no questions. Its happened with bags too. There was never any guarantee for those either.

what did you have in it?
because some bags I've had that I've carried text books in, the straps have broken because the books were so heavy. =(

Urban outfitters, has a okay selection of Fred Perry, I wish I could find the one I have on line, but it's a store edition.

I've noticed that alot of high end bags
are the easiest to damage.

i had a Chanel bag once for
three weeks,and some idiot
girl tore the straps off. i couldn't
get an exchange on it or anything.

i hope you have better luck :]

you should all write to Fred Perry for refunds/replacements. You should expect a bag to last at least a year.
