Hi TPFERS, I do not live near a Chanel store but I did get to see the purple metallic reissue 226 that was on hold for another client. It is TDF. I did not want a reissue until I saw that bag. I am now scrambling to get on a list. I am on a list for a navy metallic 228 and want to know if it is Tdf and worth the extra money. Thanks for any advice. I have learned so much from this forum.
