Hi!

I was wanting your opinions on the Chanel maxi single flap bag in grey!
It would be my first Chanel bag, so not sure whether I should go for this or a black M/L CF? It is in lambskin
Are maxis hard to wear?
Its at a good price I think £2600 GBP
Thanks!

I think you should go to the store and try the sizes. I purchased a maxi once and returned it the next day, it was simply too heavy for me and not comfortable at all.

Yes I was thinking of going to try in in store, I'd be definitely happy with a jumbo but I know maxi is quite big
What do you think of the colour/price?
Thanks! :smile:

I think a M/L is better. Maxis tend to sag at the bottom and single flap lambskin leather wouldn’t hold it’s shape overtime. I also noticed single flaps look bigger than double flaps:amazed:

how tall are you? I just got a maxi double flat in Caviar preloved. I am always scared that it will be too big, but in reality i think it is a very functional size... and think it just look big in the small bag trends right now.

I drive everywhere... so i may be biased on the weight, but I think it's not too bad.

Ah thanks for that! Yes I was thinking that about the lambskin but I may go and have a look in store!

Yes i know for sure I don't want a mini or small bag, I do like the look of M/L & jumbos! I'm 5ft7 so I am quite tall, my LV neverfull in MM looks absolutely fine on me.
What are your thoughts on this colour? It seems to be a nice dark grey

if you need a large bag, go for the jumbo! I personally picked a M/L because even the jumbo was too big for my frame. If it’s a bag you will use everyday choose a dark color like black or blue. I think that’s a good price for a maxi, but we would need more information. For example, the year, the quality of the leather, the strap, the bottom (to see if it says), etc.

Ah I see- I'm 5ft7 and so I'm not put off by a big bag but I'm not sure exactly how big this would be compared to a jumbo! It seems to be a fairly dark grey here but I think I'd have to see it in person perhaps
Its a 2010 bag
These are a few more pics

I am 5'7 also! I think it's a good size bag and does not overwhelm me.
I LOVE the taupe grey. I have similar color in glazed calf pearly lady flap bag fm 2011. the only thing is that you may just need to "baby" it a little bit more bc of the lambskin.

Oh that's good to hear! Thank you!
Oh thats lovely, have you noticed any sagging at the bottom?
Yes lambskin is quite precious but I am quite careful with my bags...
I'm between this or a Lady Dior!
