Hi Everyone, I decided to buy 2 classic flap. One is jumbo black caviar ghw and the other one is medium black caviar shw. I live 2 hours plane ride from the boutique, so I just do phone ordering. ImageUploadedByPurseForum1411647208.543062.jpg ImageUploadedByPurseForum1411647226.547958.jpg Before these purchases, I only have one classic flap, the so black jumbo. The chain hardware of my so black was thick and heavy. I was so surprised when I feel my caviars, both the chain hardware feels kinda plasticky, and they make squeaky sounds. It is as if the chains are made of plastic, and painted in gold or silver. If I did not buy it from the boutique, I will think they are fakes. The jumbo squeaky sounds is so loud and awful. Does anyone experience this? Does the sound will be better over time? I love both of the bags though, and as my babies, I will accept them just the way they are. Here is my Chanel bag family.

Thanks every one for letting me share.

A lot of people have squeaking with their Jumbo's. I have a SO Black too and the Black HW is definitely heavier than regular SHW or GHW.

Thanks Lallybelle. I thought they only do the light squeaky chain with seasonal items like my easy caviar. Apparently not.

Congrats and I understand what you are describing. My lambskin does not make any noises when I squeeze the chain. While, my caviars does because of the leather. I would not worry about it.

My jumbo's chains squeak a little bit, but it really doesn't bother me! It's because it's lovely and new and in pristine condition :smile:

Congrats on your new goodies. I had a chanel with squeaky straps and it drove me crazy. I need up selling the bag after about a month, I just couldn't handle it. Every time it squeaked I felt like everyone could hear how loud it was. Maybe it was only in my mind how loud it was but it really drove me crazy.

Hi BagAddict4Ever, I know how you feel, it is LOUD, I tried to use it today and it is a bit annoying. I am going to train my jumbo baby by hanging it on the door knob with my bag contents. I tried it before with my LV bag, and it works.
