i think beige looks best with ghw, it looks too casual in shw, i have one in lambskin and i havent used it yet...mine will be special occasion bag, so i will take care of it and hopefully it will prevent it from chipping since i wont use it often

^LOL!!

I wear my gold hardware flaps pretty often and there are no signs of chipping yet. Just get a ghw bag... Chanel can always replate it for you if it chips. Or get a vintage ghw bag that has gold-plated hardware.

I don't think the gold will chip easily.. no problems with my black caviar m/l GHW flap so far.. bought it last year and it isn't gold plated. I say go for the gold!

get the gold hw one. light beige should be a lux color but silver won't be giving you that look. I own 3 gold hardware bags but none of them show any chipping signs. Good luck and enjoy the beige with gold hardware! I really love that bag :smile:
