Chanel with outline stitching vs no stitching?

Hi! I'm currently looking forward to purchasing a square mini but as I was browsing through pictures, I notice that some of the bags had a stitching that outlines the flap and some does not. I'm a little bit confused so I was wondering if anyone can explain it to me. Is one a newer style than the other? Also, if any of you own the chanel square mini, do you think it's worth it? Thanks :smile: I insert pics as reference to show that one has the stitching and the other does not.

Certain seasons CHANEL will put outline stitching on caviar bags. The ones with outline stitching are usually a harder standing caviar versus the ones that don't are usually softer. Nothing wrong with either one but personally I like the look of outline stitching on caviar bags.

Thanks for explaining! I guess i'll look into the one with the stitching as I also like it a little better since it looks neater :smile:

I have 3 square minis (haha so yes I love square minis!) and the 2 caviar ones both have a stitch outline. Both are were pre owned so I'm not sure of which collection these were released. The lamb does not have the stitching.
Going by your pics I also prefer the mini with stitching [emoji1360]
