Ok, now I FINALLY get it!

  1. 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 :heart: 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 :heart: 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? :smile:

  4. Congrats!! I love reissues! The only downfall about reissues is in the summer when you're sleeveless, the chains are icy cold on the shoulder lol.:lol:
  5. I love this bag! You know, I was never into flaps before, but I tried on a jumbo at the NM and fell in love. I want to get one eventually, maybe in dark silver or dark gold. Congrats on snagging it!
