modern chain critique

  1. Here is my critique on the Modern Chain flap.

    I received my red one today--thanks to Onyxbear and a heads up about one being at the NM in WPNY.

    The leather feels awesome. It is so soft, and almost feels plush.

    The RED is to die for--it is a very deep, bright crimson color. I have 2 other red Chanels, one is a bit to the burgandy side and the other a hint of orange. This red is perfect.

    The chain has almost a tarnished look too it, so not bright silver--this is a spectacular compliment to the leather's shade of red.

    The size--I wish it were just a big bigger. The width is fine, 2.5"--but the bag is only 5.5" tall, and I think it would be more "user friendly" if it were closer to 7" tall. My biggest greif is that once I put my wallet, keys and cell phone in it will NOT hold a Chanel Sunglasses case.

    I love the bag, but the size just may be the only reason I return it. I hate to do it--I just wish Chanel made another size in this bag.
     
  2. i LOVE THIS BAG
    I LOVE THE BLACK ONE TOO, BUT RED SOUNDS YUMMY..
    I THOUGHT THE BAG WS BIGGER THAN IT WAS UNTIL I SEEN IT AT THE STORE..
    I WOULD LOVE THE RED.. BUT THANKS FOR THE INFO ABOUT THE SIZE. CAUSE I NEED SUNGLASS CASE, EYE GLASS CASE- AND CONTACT CASE- ALONG WITH THE REG ACCESSORIS....
    WHAT WAS THE PRCE AGAIN..SEND PICS I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT IN RED
     
  3. Did I read somewhere that the flap came in two sizes? Did you buy the larger one?
     
  4. I had not heard that it came in 2 sizes, but you've peaked my curiousity! I am going to call Chanel tomorrow. I thought it only came in the one size--which to me is small.
     
  5. I heard that it is only one size == and it does seem small IRL. But gorgeous, I must say.
     
  6. Please post pics. I want to see which bag you're talking about.
     
  7. i know for sure it comes in two sizes, maybe you bought the samller one?
     
  8. I know that the tote comes in two sizes--but I have the flap, and to my knowledge there is only 1 size avaible in the flap style. I am going to call Chanel now to ask. I will let you guys know what I find out. I will also post pictures in a little bit.
     
  9. Ok, I just called Chanel, and I stand corrected (sorry)--here is what they said:

    Chanel makes 5 styles in the Modern Chain.

    Classic Flap--avialable in 2 sizes (she said the Chanel boutiques did not buy the smaller size, that is why I was only aware of the 1 size).
    The style number for the small is A33368
    The style number for the large is A33372 (I have the large, and it is approx 10" wide, 5" tall, 2.5" deep)

    Tote--available in 2 sizes

    Hobo style
     
  10. GREAT to know!:yes:
     
  11. So the large is too small then.:sad:
     
  12. yes, the large is "too small" for me... I'm going to order the smaller tote today, and then compare. Life would be so much easier if I lived in a city and could just go try it on! I"m going to hold onto this one just in case...

    I fear the small tote will be "too big". And then knowing me, I'll cave and keep both, justifying that they each serve a different purpose! :yes:

    Here are pics

  13. here are two more pictures, one of them shows about how much stuff will fit in it, as you will see... I have a wallet (chanel caviar w/6 credit card slots/coin purse), keys, business card holder, chap stick, mirror and lipstick. Thats it!!!

  14. I had heard there were two sizes but no one had confirmed it until now. Thanks! Isn't that red color gorgeous? I didn't think that much about the size. I was also looking at the medium classic flap which is roughly the same size. I carry a smaller wallet, but that would still fill up pretty quickly. Are you going to order the tote in red as well?
     
  15. Beautiful bag ellerbean!! I thought it came in a jumbo size I am mistaking this purse for another:shrugs: ?
