own this same exact boy in all black - same hardware color! Read that Metis used to have quality issues, should ensure this has been fixed and no longer the case with this style.Hi Guys, how are you. I came across an aportunity to get one of these bags.
But I don´t really know which one to choose.
I like both brands and both bags. They are the same price aswell.
Chanel´s is leather, but the Louis Vuitton´s is brand new.
Can you help me decide?

I was actually wondering about Crossbody with the boy bag. On YouTube and even here a lot of people can wear it crossbody. However, when I saw it in the store the chain didn’t look long enough for crossbody for me (I’m 5 8 size 12-14). I didn’t try it crossbody bc I went to buy a wallet.I vote for the pochette metis (although I loved the boy more). I owned both at one point and sold both. There are pros and cons to both in my experience.
PM - carefree canvas, not much to worry about asides from the vachetta (if you worry about patina) and the possible defects that's been known, holds quite a lot, can crossbody and worn comfortably
Boy - gives a more chic and edgier look, it's not as carefree especially the corners will show wear especially in that cream colour, depending on how you plan on using the bag, it will not hold as much as the boy, cannot crossbody for most people as strap is not long enough, the bulky chain tends to shift around a bit
So I think it comes down to your planned usage, style, etc.
I think it depends on how tall u are and how comfortable u are on where it hits you? But since youre pretty tall, I don’t think it’ll work? I’m 5”5 and it hits me a bit high (just underneath the ribs, a bit above my hips) but I guess I could still pull it off, but it’s not a preferred method for me to carry cause I find it a bit awkward where it sat on meI was actually wondering about Crossbody with the boy bag.

As for the original question, I thought about getting a PM, but decided against it. I personally don’t like that particular boy combination, so I would say PM. But get whatever makes your heart sing more.
