i can't seem to find any information on the measurements of vintage Chanel Medium Double Flap bags. I just purchased an 09 series bag (late 80's) and it was advertised as a 27cm bag. My 2 series Medium Flap is a 25cm bag. Besides the flatter flap, were the older CC Medium Flap bags 2cm longer than the later bags or did they just stretch out 2 cm? I really want the extra 2 cm as it makes the bag much closer to the measurement of my favorite carry bag, the Balenciaga First, but with a longer chain, which might make this new purchase my favorite bag.
