Hi,

I'm just wondering if the strap for the medium classic can be worn across the body just like a messenger style?

Please help
Thanks

hmmm I'm 5'7" and it fits but it looks funny... I'm pretty slender too sz 0/2.... maybe they shortened the straps or something??

P.S. "reference" pic of my size in my pictures!

I think they shortened the straps for the new bags. I am 5'5 and I tried the messenger style with my new bag and it is a bit short. I'm ave build though, a 4, so perhaps I ate up some of the chain and hence shortened it.

Pity really! Wearing it messenger-styley comes in useful at times.

Okay nevermind. It's just a tad too short for messenger style :sad: Then the Jumbo is a bit too long. Sigh. I'm sorry.

^ITA...it doesn't work messenger style. I'm petite & the straps are too short. Maybe it's because mine is the newer version? But you might try the vintage ones.

It looks good on you in messenger style.
I tried my 07 medium flap before, and it looked awkward in cross-body style even though I am not tall or big at all.

I hope I can lengthen the strap a little bit by Chanel repair service so that I can wear mine in messenger style... (I think even 09 strap is not long enough for me)

Sunbeamy,
Both the strap of my current season M/L fuchsia and classic black( bought last yr) have the same length.

It was too short when I tried to wear them messenger style.

I am abt 5'2, size 6.
