Hi ladies,

I'm just wondering what you guys feel about a vintage chanel vs a new chanel. Vintage costs more than a new bag sometimes. I like vintage because its not so common. But what are your thoughts?

Debating on buying a vintage bag or a new one because of the 18k gold plated straps I have been hearing about. I understand Chanel doesn't use 18k gold plated anymore and wonder if the new bags have better quality now?
Thanks

I've been debating between getting a vintage or brand new chanel classic recently..so this is a great thread ;) I've also heard about the lambskin quality being better on the vintage ones than the newer ones.. as well with the gold plated hardware on the vintage!

Where can I find info on gold plating and the meaning of their marks/stamps? I have tried google and had no luck
