IMG_2627.PNG IMG_2646.JPG Currently, I do not own any Chanel slgs but I recently saw a picture of the Chanel boy cardholder and decided that I need one in my life!

After inquiring with a number of different SAs to see what is actually available I have two choices: black caviar boy cardholder with matte gold hardware or black caviar zip around coin purse with light gold hardware and I'm not sure which one I should go with.

Initially I wanted the cardholder because I own an LV zippy coin purse and thought the Chanel zip around might be too similar. As I already own the LV zippy coin purse that I use on a daily basis, I'm looking for something to holder a little extra cash as well as some gift cards/membership cards.

I would really appreciate anyone's thoughts/opinions regarding these two slgs and whether you would recommend one over the other!

I love the zip around! I have the so black version and also the classic quilt. Fits nicely in my small bags and also has separate compartments to separate cards, coins and bills. IMG_1494227906.543361.jpg IMG_1494227932.760636.jpg

Thanks for taking the time to respond and to share pictures! Ahhh I love this so black version--- it's so gorgeous! That's the color I originally wanted but it seems like it's all sold out already. If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase yours from?

I have both styles of CC card holders (though not in the boy design) and I like them both, but I prefer the zip around card holder. Of the two pictured, I prefer the shiny LGH of the zip around style since it seems to be more versatile than the matte GHW. GLD!

Zip around hands down! It holds a million times more haha...okay obviously an exaggeration but for me it held significantly more than my small flap one which I ended up selling. However, the soft caviar flap one in your photo does have a little more space than my regular caviar flap, since it's more flexible/soft.

Regardless, my small zip around card case holds pretty much everything I would normally hold in my full sized wallet [emoji846]
