I'm thinking of selling my black boy bag for a 19. How often do you use your 19? Currently, the only bag I've been using consistently is my alma bb as it's easy to take care of and goes with everything. I don't seem to reach for my chanel flap even though I love it and I hardly ever reached for the boy since I got it. Obviously, I don't want the 19 to be yet another bag I don't use.
I guess I'm just trying to see if others find the 19 user friendly for everyday/casual wear. I'm looking to get the small size in leather, probably black or beige.
I think the 19 is very user-friendly and appropriate for every day wear. However, I wouldn't choose a tweed version for frequent use. The leather on my small black goatskin is very durable and the style is elegant but casual. I like it enough to consider it in a lighter color. Really a great bag!

Thanks for your thoughts! I loved the contrast of the gray with gold chain but I felt overwhelmed with anxiety thinking about the tweed material. I want the 19 to be my everyday bag and the tweed would limit my use. So i returned it and got it in beige instead!

I see that you already returned it lol. I do agree that I love the shade of grey with gold hardware

I'd like to hear this as well! Wear and tear, keeping structure/shape over time, and working year-round are all things I look for in a bag, and I'm not sure that the 19 meets those criteria.

I know I need the maxi if I am to fit my daily essentials, but I'm not sure
whether to go for leather (black) or the blue tweed with the Chanel ribbons going through it, or something else I haven't considered! (I did see and rule out the red, even though I am usually a red/pink girl.) Which would you go for, or neither? I'm kinda leaning towards neither. For the price, it checks off so little of what I want in a bag (in addition to the above points I raised, it also doesn't have feet), and I don't know that it looks good on me. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Tweed looks so much better than the leather one IMO. But I’m not a fan of the shiny leather on 19s to start with so a maxi size for me is a no no

Thanks for the input! Haha, have you seen the glazed calfskin 19s? Those are even more shiny!!

Haha I think it will depend. I just don’t like shines on lamb or goat on a bag that kind of looks like and feels like a pillow lol
I do have Chanel glazed leather bag. I haven’t seen the glazed 19 yet!

For a brand new bag, does anyone feel like there are too many wrinkles on this Chanel 19? Thanks!
That's just the way the 19 is... I've seen brand new ones in even worse condition. It really does not hold up over time.

I actually love this bag on you in the navy tweed, it's just stunning!!!! I love the tweed 19 bags so much! I have two 19 bags and I find them super easy to use!!! Just my opinion though, I know everyone has different thoughts, but I really do think the tweed is stunning on you. It's very big, but if you need that size to fit your essentials then I say go for it!

Does anyone have any intel on when the pastel candy colored 19 bags are coming out? I know they are coming out with a beautiful pink, light blue and turquoise for Spring, just wondering if anyone saw any other photos or knows for sure when they're coming out? Thanks in advance!
