First Chanel

  1. Hi All,

    I purchased my first Chanel this afternoon. The lady who sold me the bag called it the baguette (I thought it was called the east-west). Since it was on hold and i didnt wan't to risk loosing it I bought it without really looking at their other stock.

    Also, i asked whether the chain has little clips to modify the length (which I though was standard with all classic flap bags). She said she had never heard of a classic flap that had this. Is this right?

    Many thanks :smile:
     
  2. yes the baguette (otherwise known as east west, or pochette) has a little clip to modify the length :yes:

    congratulations!
     
  3. Thanks - i cant find the clip though plus the SA said it does not have this option.
     
  4. Unless you have a different style bag, or they've changed it, the strap was adjustable in the older models...

    Come to think of it i have seen a baguette that looked slightly different to the east west.

    The east-west that has adjustable straps looks like this:

    The adjustable chain & hook looks like this:
