Hi, I got the similar question like shoprgrl's. I am going to get my 1st Chanel before Feb 1st. I am new to Chanel an have reviewed many posts in this nice forum but cannot decide which one to get yet. I probabaly will chose one from the black classic flaps. I am really new to Chanel:shame: and really appreciate your advice. 1. What's the difference between Caviar and Reissue? The only thing I can see from the pics is that Caviar has the metal hardware chanel icon?? 2. Which size of them is the best? 3. Is lambskin better than calf leather? 4. Will the gold hardware be easy to lost the color? My goal is to get the most classic chanel bag as my first. I truly looking forward to your advice. Thanks!
