These two bags have some similarities whereby they both have a metal chain that can be worn cross body or sling or doubled the chain to make it a shoulder bag.
The chain for Miss Dior is a little bit longer if you can see from the pictures below.

Very informative thread! Thanks a million!

I really like the Miss Dior with the aged calfskin. Certainly gives the Chanel Reissue some serious competition.

More photos for comparison. Let's look at the chain on the bag. The Miss Dior has a hook outside where it doesn't press on the leather. But thr downside is you couldn't keep it inside the bag then. While the reissue chain is hook through the bag thus it gives some pressure on the bag. Especially when the bag is loaded it will loss the shape because of the pressure on the leather. And after some wear you can see the leather has some press mark on top. Personally I prefer the Miss Dior design where it doesn't impact the leather but as mentioned you could not keep the chain inside the bag then. I am fine with it since I hardly use it as a cluth. :biggrin:

thanks for sharing these!
I personally do not care for the new Miss Diors. Not sure why they made it less structured and less sleek.
I love the old Miss Diors. I hope they bring them back.

Is this medium miss dior long chain?
(Sorry Dior newbie here)
This is the new Miss Dior bag (I think the size is medium) with a sliding chain. There is only one chain size for this bag since it is adjustable.

I'm not sure but it seems that way. There are still some old Miss Dior bags left, including the slightly newer ones with leather-interlaced chains. The new models seem to all be the new Miss Dior.

Oh the interwoven chain is consider newer version of old miss dior. Good to know as well, but I don't quite like it as it really has a feel of copying the chanel.

Thank you so much for this super informative thread. This is just what I've been hoping to come across and it's definitely making my decision so much easier :heart:
Both of your bags are stunners, by the way :loveeyes:
