That is BS. It’s def different. It actually does bother me a bit because I much prefer gold and the contrast just makes the CC’s look more like silver to me.Does it bother you? Just curious to know! I messaged my SA and he told me it was the same color. Such BS to be honest.
Yup I ended up keeping the bag. After some time it didn't really bother me. Like you said, hard to tell unless you're looking for it. I went into a Chanel store twice after I noticed and all other seasonal classic flaps I saw had the same difference.I JUST noticed the color difference on my 22a dark beige medium cf. honestly if I had not read about it one Instagram post and put the chain strap next to the CC as a result to check it I wouldn’t have noticed and I doubt others will too.
But yes, I do see the difference when I place them next to each other with the CC hardware looking more silver and the strap chain being yellow Gold. I’m fine though as the dark beige color is my personal favorite beige/taupe shade from Chanel.
Did you end up keeping the bag? Are other Chanel bags having this mismatched hardware as well or just CF’s?
I personally don’t plan on selling them but out of curiosity how would you go about fixing them? Take it to the Chanel store to get the hardware replaced on a new bag? Would they take it or would we have to pay? I’d love to hear options…If you go to sell these, it's going to be a problem. I'd get it fixed while you can.
