Hi All,

I'm kind of new to this board but am totally getting sucked in. This place is dangerous!!!
I need some help here- regarding the 2.55 quilted flap, can the chain handle be doubled and made shorter? Or can I only wear it long to my hip?
Also, how brown is the brown? I'm looking at a picture on the internet and it looks black to me.

Last question, how much does this bag retail for?

Thanks so much! :smile:

Hi Helena welcome to the Chanel subforum.:flowers:

If we're talking about the Jumbo flap it can be doubled and worn over the shoulder.

I think the older large/medium flaps could not be double, but the newer ones (2008) can.

Chanel hasn't done a brown flap for a few years. Which bag in particular are you talking about?

It can be worn double or single strap, Chanel have various shade of browns, it all depend of the year/season that a particular brown shade was from.
Every season is different.
2006 was the last year Chanel had a classic flap in brown
2008 Chanel had a metallic brown reissue (but not for the U.S.)

It's an older bag. According to the hologram sticker it's from between 1997 - 1999. Sophie might know better exactly what year based on the numbers.

Ask the seller to provide a picture of the bag in natural sunlight and then maybe you can see the brown undertones.

I have a vertical quilt jumbo that looks similar and is from the same period. I assumed it was black until one day I happened to see it next to a (true) black jumbo! I consider the color a brown-black.

Good luck!
