Hi all! I'm new to Chanel and have narrowed it down to a grey reissue 227 with shw or a navy caviar jumbo flap with shw. I will also be getting a black M/L flap in lamb skin or possibly caviar with ghw so I wanted something different than black for my larger bag. Any thoughts and help is greatly appreciated!!

I have a grey reissue with ruthenium hardware, and I really like it. What color calls to you more? Which do you think would go well with your wardrobe and other bags? Navy is dark like the black, so maybe the grey would work better, so you'd have one lighter and one darker (since you say you will get a M/L flap in black).

I would get the reissue. Since you are already getting a m/l in black get the reissue they are both classics and theres a bit of variation between the two. Where the only difference between the m/l and jumbo is size. At least getting the reissue the quilting is different as is the style of hardware.

Beige with GHW caviar jumbo. Gorgeous bag. That would be my vote.
Because gray serves the same purpose as black and less. But beige is very different and that color combo on a jumbo would be fabulous.
