I'm going to post this on both Chanel and LV forums to get the best feedback. I have been wanting the LV Pallas in black and Gucci swing tote in black (small) since they each came out and I was close to pulling the trigger on both until...I saw the Boy bag in light brown. It has quickly become my new obsession. Not that I still don't want the other two mind you, I still love them both. I do have other LV mono bags, including the NN14 with black on it. Plus I have other black bags... Epi Noe, GST and new med Boy. I don't have any bags the color of the light brown boy.


It's a hard decision when I think of getting 2 bags for the price of one, plus money left over for a pair of shoes. Please help! I will include pics for reference.

I say the Light Brown Boy Bag (and not because this is the Chanel thread). I'm a fan of all three brands but in terms of which of the three won't be available to get at a later time it's the boy bag. If you really like the light brown and have the funds to purchase now that's the one to get. I know it's tempting to get two bags instead of one but only you can ask yourself will you regret not having the boy bag when this color sells outs...

I think you should go for the boy because you can buy the other 2 but your obsession for the boy won't go away...and you might end up spending more than you planned :smile:

Another vote for the boy! The other two are great but another color like this might not come around again (?)

Just do not buy the Gucci! I think Gucci is a bad investment because they always go on sale. I was a huge fan is Gucci and now regret all my purchases. Chanel is my favorite handbag designer but I think It is great to have at least 1 plain LV monogram canvas in your collection. The Pallas is a good choice. It will go with everything and it is a bag that you can use every day if you would like. It is versatile. I am thinking about purchasing a Pochette Métis. With that said, I really like that boy bag. You have to think about which will go better with your lifestyle/wardrobe.

Go for Boy why a) chanel b) different style more interesting; other two look boring to Me c)price factor boys keep going up. Boy I bought from last season now way more pricey...

I would say Boy too. I am a fan of all 3 brands but I don't like monogram bags (smaller pieces are ok). I find it interesting that some say it will go with everything. How on earth would monogram LV go with a floral dresses or patterns?? I love Gucci, but I am not overly keen on the swing tote IMO it is too cheap, and neither do I like black. The Chanel boy, on the other hand, is what I would choose. As others have said, the price will continue to go up, and the colours are always changing. So if it is a colour you love then get it. The Pallas will be around for ever, thats a given with LV, and their standard collection nothing much changes.

Thank you all for your input. I agree with the price of the boys going up and also the stock of what is available changes all the time. If I don't get it now, I may never get it unless I find it preloved or nwt at a possible higher price. The black boy in new medium I have I've seen going for way more than I bought it for. Now to break it to my DH..lol

I would say boy bag because no1 I got it after obsessing and I am so in love with it I know you will feel the same and no2 the price increase. It will keep its value if you want to re-sell but now really is the time to invest in a Chanel if you plan to keep and enjoy!

Oh dear...am I the first to say maybe get the two other bags? I *love* the look of this Boy, don't get me wrong, and it'll surely be a great addition to your collection. However, because you already have a Boy I'd go for 2 other styles instead. I actually like the Gucci swing bags, thinking of getting one as well at some point. And both LV and Gucci are lovely brands as well...luxury problems! :smile:
