Hi, I am a newbie in Chanel coz I just bought my 1st Chanel (black 2.55 medium classic flap in lamb) a few months ago. Now I'm planning to get a red jumbo caviar and I wish that I can wear it cross body when traveling. But I am afraid that this might cause some press marks on the bag when I wear it in single strap. Will this happen to a caviar? Thanks in advance.:biggrin:

In my experience, the strap doesn't cause indentations on caviar leather unless you press really, really hard- another possibility might be if you're carrying too much in the jumbo. But I don't see that happening easily, since caviar leather is pretty durable. You'd only have to worry about lambskin... Even during storage the chains might make marks on the leather.

I meant less soft than lambskin. Sorry for bad english :P
I have a caviar in m/l size and I wear it in single strap and it doesn't seem to leave a mark on the caviar leather. I used to have a Miu Miu lambskin bag and it tends to scratch easily (well also because I'm a very careless and a bit rough with my bags), hence I got the caviar since I read on this forum it requires very little maintenance and holds up very well.

Press mark? Do you have pictures for us to see exactly what you are talking about? I own caviar flaps and don't see any press marks on mines.

Hi burberryprncess, thanks again for helping me to authenticate the new Chanel flap from ebay. :biggrin:

Sorry I dont have any picture for ur reference. The press mark on my lamb dissapeared after I had rubbed it with my fingers. That's why I was wondering whether this will happen to a caviar or not coz I dont own any caviar yet.

I have tried wearing it cross body , the cavair jumbo i have , i find that the strap makes my shoulder rather uncomfy, since teh jumbo is a rather heavy purse. But no issues of " press marks " If there are any depression , it went away after i re adjusted to normal shoulder carry ....

Thanks for ur advise, berniechocolate:biggrin: I think I should reconsider it since it is not so comfy when wearing it cross body. It's true ... the jumbo is quite heavy in weight. :oh:

Press marks go away on caviar. I once had my medium large with me on vacation and I squeezed it into the hotel room safety deposit box and when I closed the door it caused the chain strap to press against it for about 15 hours straight! When I took it out it had very deep impressions on the FRONT of my poor flap! They were deep and so noticeable! Well, I just rubbed them a bit, and thought I'd be stuck with it like that. I later took it out with me. By the end of the night (and a glass or two of wine later) there was no sign of press marks!

:nuts:Wow! What a miracle! The caviar is really durable. Thanks for sharing with me, Luccibag.:biggrin:
