I was at Chanel NAC yesterday and MBS store today looking at the Boy Flap. I have been wanting to get the Boy for ages but somehow when I held it in my hand, it seems lacking. Doesn't befit the status of a $6480 bag. I am not sure if I will even pay $4500 for it in Europe. The finish seems rough, not as well made. But it looks good from afar.
Anyone has the same feel as me be it Boy or other Chanel bags?
Yeah agree that the boy is priced comparable to classics flaps yet the finishing is comparable to those cheaper seasonal flaps that comes with fabric interior lining. however, the look is something very different, only chanel fanatics will know. :)
I am not talking about the design. I like the look of it. Just that I don't find it well-made enough to justify the price. Wonder if it is just me.
Correct me if i am wrong cos i do not own a boy Chanel n hv only tried them on in the store.
May be there isn't many pockets/compartments in a boy Chanel as compared to a classic flap?
The lack of a double flap in a boy definitely means lesser material/leather is used. The interior looks bare and is fabric lined.
For the steep price point, I would rather get a classic flap or a reissue. I am a sucker for classic:)
I must say the quilted ones are very pretty but I try to avoid lambskin.
I might get one in future cos sometimes it takes a long time for a bag to grow on me:)
