Hi Ladies
So I had a earlier thread where I am exchanging a Black Caviar Boy old medium and was about to commit to a reissue 225 I wasnt all that sure about had a combo quilt and chevron pattern. Thank goodness for the sharp eyes of some of the members here who saw the bag had some major faults. Thank you Ladies :flowers:

So another SA at another store found me this 225 reissue and I am in love!!! the red flap is so pretty :heart:. What do you think?

I need to buy without seeing in person since they cant hold it too long. I cant get to the store until Thursday :shocked:

I was told its calfskin but it looks like goatskin or sheepskin to me......

I like this reissue much better than the combo quilted/chevron in the other thread you posted. The gold hardware makes it pop. I really like this 225 for you.

I believe this is sheepskin. Absolutely looooove the lining color - wow.

I prefer timeless classics combos on the reissue style that would be less likely to be dated by style over time. Personally partial to the inverted/upside down chevron on the bottom half of the flap and prefer the classic chevron pattern or classic quilting. On the reissue, I love the aged calfskin the most, but this sheepskin is a close second material wise.

I believe it's sheepskin. I have the same in blue which I picked up earlier this month, the lining is fuschia as well. It's a gorgeous piece, and the colour keeps growing on me. I'll update with some new photos tomorrow. Good luck deciding!

Thank you everyone for responding. I just emailed my SA that I wanted the bag and to call me to charge hold for pick up :nuts: So excited.

DinkyCam how is the sheepskin on your purse. Is it delicate like lambskin? I was hoping to find a reissue in calfskin or cavier but I love the inner flap and this bag makes my heart ❤ flutter lol I know the ladies on this forum would understand. My husband thinks I'm loosing my mind buying such an expensive purse.

Can't wait for pics, especially more detail shots of the inner lining please! [emoji7] I am living vicariously through you right now and hoping I never see the yellow version IRL or else I'm in big trouble.

Oh my this is one gorgeous reissue! The pop of pink lining is a plus! Is this from 17p? I thought they only have with black hardware! Please do share more pictures once you receive it! Congrats!!

Hiya Ashley's, congratulations on the leap, sometimes your ❤ just knows! My other Chanel pieces are predominantly lambskin, right down to the SLGs. And I had thought this bag was calfskin to begin with! It's sturdy and very puffy. The gorgeous fuschia lining pops out cheerfully everywhere . As promised, I am enclosing photos in this post, outdoor in the sun, and indoor (with and without flash).

Two more from a different angle (with and without HDR), because I just love the chameleon colour tendencies of this bag!
Thank you so much for the pictures ! Your bag is gorgeous! Love the color :heart: amazing how the color changes. Can't wait to bring my reissue home :nuts:
