Would you take a 226 to a formal/dressy event?

  1. Hi all,

    I have just read a thread here about when to wear the jumbo flap classic, and most said it is perfect for day time. How about a reissue 226 for a formal or dressy event? Do you think that will be too big or ok to wear?
     
  2. i think it's OK. But if you have smaller, it will be better.
     
  3. I think a 226 is great for a formal event if it is the metallic silver or gold versions - those are bling bags. I just got the new 226 distressed black reissue with gold HW and I would take it to a cocktail party or similar dressy event, but not to a formal black tie, long dress type event.
     
  4. I think it would be fine, if it looks too casual hanging from your shoulder, you could always shorthen the straps and carry it tote style or tuck the straps in and carry it as a clutch.
     
  5. I think it's fine! I brought mine to a jewellery fashion show at a posh hotel 2 weekends ago!
     
  6. i think the 226 size is perfect for cocktails and the likes!
     
  7. for me.. its ok.. its in the middle.. not too small, not too big :smile:
     
  8. Thank you all!!! Now I don't need to worry about using mine later for a wedding banquet! :yahoo:
     
  9. Abso-freaking-lutely!
     
  10. Oh yeah. I think it's fine.
     
  11. of course!
     
  12. absolutely.
