Dear everyone,

I just received the reissue flap bag in caviar leather and noticed that the caviar leather is different from the caviar leather on the classic flap bag. Is it supposed to be that way?

I feel they use different types of caviar for each bag. For example caviar on the GST is different than caviar on the classic flaps. I wouldn't be surprised if caviar on the reissue isn't the same.

+1. I've handled a caviar reissue bag and the leather is softer than the classic. My jumbo's caviar is hard as a rock whereas my woc and GST are softer and more pliable to the touch.

Chanel did the reissue in three kinds of caviar leathers for three different seasons:
1) sueded caviar
2) washed caviar
3) regular caviar (most recently)

Number three is closest in nature to the caviar used on classics. Aside from the above the leather can vary slightly from bag to bag also.

What season is yours from? Do post pix!!
