So I've had a couple questions on my Instagram from people who are wondering how to get their hands on an MG bag since they are continually out of stock pretty much everywhere. So here are some of the ways and places that I've found these bags (as a US resident).
These stores carry these bags and as the restock date on the MG site approaches, some of these stores will sell the bags as soon as they get it (which is before the MG restock). Already I've had success with Shopbazaar, and was able to order a mini brandy bucket bag last week (to replace the mini royal blue bucket bag I decided to let go). Here are the other stores I would try:
Opening Ceremony (you have to sign up for the notification but it's worth it if you really want an MG)
Barney's (they've had stock issues in the past but seem to be the ones with the most stock available)
The Line (small NYC based shop with great customer service)
Mohawk General Store (small LA based shop with great customer service)
Stores I would avoid or haven't tried, but do carry MG bags:
Bergdorf Goodman (tons of complaints on canceled orders, and they have cancelled 2 of my order as well)
Matches (just haven't tried this shop)
Other tactics/resources include:
Just googling Mansur Gavriel and checking the shopping section of Google
Or you could just wait for the restock on Mansur Gavriel, which is set for October 20th at 11AM EST (or for us Californians, 8AM). I wrote my tips on the restock purchase process here but I'll copy it here as well (I was able to get the Lady bag that I wanted with the process below): And I would just add that browse the site and already know what bag you want days before because they do shutdown the site right before they launch so you can't browse then.
Get on the site about 5 minutes before the launch and already have the bag you want picked out and just keep clicking refresh from about 2 minutes before or so. And if you're lucky enough to snag the one that you want, go to checkout asap. You only have 5 minutes to complete the purchase once you get it into your cart. Also, they have a limit of one bag per customer. If you don't get your first choice, you probably won't be able to get your second unless it's a tote or backpack but it doesn't hurt to try.
