I have been lusting after the modern chain flap bag in black ever since hikarupanda posted about hers back at the beginning of 2006. i thought they were all sold out, and i was focused on reissues anyway, so i didn't pursue it. Then i was out of the "chanel" loop last year so i didn't realize that they had done them again but in slightly shinier leather and hardware. finally after seeing all the other tpf'ers have such amazing luck finding their dream bag, i decided to make some calls myself. well, the mc flap in black from 2006 (which is about $150 less than the 2007 version) is on its way to me... I should have it by friday. i'm so excited because i just love how gritty and rocker-ish it looks! My SA said she could probably get the shinier version for me, but i think the matte leather/hardware is more my style. i've been searching around on the board for pics of the two different bags, and i think i made the right choice!
