Charlie 28 Design Change

Morning all!
As you've probably seen from my recent reveals, I really do love the Charlie both in the carryall size and the smaller 28. I picked up a couple of the metallic 28s during this past sale. I also purchased one of the newer Charlie 28s in Oxblood at full price. I went to transfer my stuff to my new Oxblood 28 and immediately noticed a design change which may result in its return. As you can see from the photos I attached, the new design seems to have two slip pockets attached to the center zip rather than the one larger slip pocket the previous style, including the most recent metallics, had. I have a Galaxy S8 plus phone and do not use a case. My phone barely fits into either of the slip pockets of the new design, whereas it fit perfectly into the older design with the one large slip pocket with no problem at all and could probably even fit a case. This could be a deal-breaker for some of you so I wanted to pass this along. Of course, the photos on Coach's website still reflect the one larger pocket, rather than these two slip pockets. I know I would have liked to have known this ahead of time, so that is why I'm posting.

I guess I didn't pay attention to the slip pockets when I ordered the metallic ones. But I would need the larger single one for my S7 Edge in its case. Good to know. Love the colors on the green one.

My signature Charlie larger size has the 2 slip pockets. I got mine in November from Macy’s. They are a bit tight and it’s my only complaint about the bag. I don’t put my phone in the pockets so it’s not a big deal for me but I’d prefer the one larger pocket. I don’t know if the larger size ever had one pocket or always the 2.

I think the signature one came out at the same time as the Oxblood, hence the two smaller pockets.
I have an original & newer larger Charlie carryall & both have the same design - two slip pockets.

What wallet do you all use with your Charlie Carryall 28? I bought a Coach Softwallet but it just doesn’t seem to fit just right. I’ve just been using a LV cles as a card holder but would like to find a wallet that holds cash. Thanks.

I don't have mine yet but are you putting your wallet in the middle zip section rather than one of the two sides?

My absolute favorite Coach wallet is one the FP stores used to make but now I can only find occasionally at the outlet or on Ebay. It's the soft slim wallet. Carries a ton of cards yet maintains a slim profile. It fits in most every bag I own length wise as well. I've attached some photos I grabbed from the internet. Let me know if you have any questions!

I agree, it's my favorite wallet too. Both of mine are FP, from 2014 and 2016. The quality is great. I'm afraid the factory versions may not be as nice.

Nope, no issues in or out. Easily an inch of room on both sides of the wallet. I could put my phone in there or a card case. My keys, tissue pack & work badge go on the other side with my beauty stuff in the center zip.
I was thinking the same with this bag. My wallet and phone on one side, coupons, keys, misc. on the other. And my wristlet with lipstick, etc. in the middle zip. I don't like cosmetics loose in a bag because I would have messes all the time.
