Hi all! I finally GET all the talk about reissues and how much everybody loves them! In my search for my first Chanel bag, I am happy to let you know I have finally found the ONE! I originally purchased the hybrid jumbo flap w/mm lock in black... liked it, but didn't it enough to feel it was perfect as my 1st Chanel. Thanks to a post by another tPF member in the shopping thread I was able to locate a black metallic reissue 227 - which arrived today. This is THE bag I have been looking for! I absolutely it! The leather, the color, the hardware, the double flap, EVERYTHING! I know there are many pics of these bags but I will post mine as well. Taken inside w/flash. If any of you are thinking about this bag I highly recommend you get it - ASAP! PS The hybrid is being returned to NM. PPS Wonder what my next reissue flap will be?
