  3. You're welcome! Sorry it took so long before you received a reply.

    Well, the Jumbo Flap is the ultimate classic flap and iconic to Chanel, the one that has always been around. It's part of their continuous Timeless Classics ligne.

    The Maxi and Maxi Jumbo flaps are variations on the regular Jumbo and are larger in size. The Maxi flap came with a so called 'wing' problem (do a search on wings and you'll see what I mean ;)) and was replaced by the Maxi Jumbo.

    So the model you probably want is the 'real' Jumbo: http://www.chanel.com/fashion/7#7-large-flap-bag-1,1,1,4

    More pics of the Jumbo and other flaps can be found in our reference library: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-reference-library/post-pictures-your-flaps-classic-flaps-including-wocs-44179-33.html

    Hope this clears things up a bit!
     
  4. Nat Nat Nat! Thanks sooooo much for your detailed explanation and kind advice! i fully understand now..Yes, you are right..the one i wanted is the Jumbo flap...This is my first time buying a chanel..and i went to the local chanel shop yesterday to try, but all jumbos were sold out..the SA never said anything abt Maxi Jumbo or Maxi flap. Thus, i started to panick when i read that there are 3 diff kinds of jumbo sizes...don even know which one is the right size.

    Thanks once again. You are so great!:biggrin:
     
  5. My pleasure! Have you asked them to put your name on the waiting list? Just to make sure you'll get one when their next shipment comes in.
     
  6. Nat..
    i'm asking u a silly qns here..from your personal view..do u prefer cavier jumbo (black) with gold or silver hardware? Will the gold tarnishes and have uneven colour after few yrs of usage? Is silver hw easier to maintain? My pal is in Harrods now waiting for me reply..and i'm in Singapore struggling to give her my ultimate reply...heeelpppppp
     
  7. Hi moofoo, my personal preference is the silver hardware. I have a 7 year old shopping tote with gold hardware and so far it hasn't tarnished yet.
     
  8. Hi Nat,
