Hello lovely ladies of the forum. Would love your insight please. I accidentally tried on a maxi classic flap a few weeks ago. It was black lambskin and beautiful. But best of all, the size was perfect for me. A week before, I went to Neimans to try the reissue in jumbo size. It did not look so good on me, just blah. I thought it was the biggest size, but I just learned that there was a bigger size, the 228. Sadly though, I was just told that the 228 size was discontinued? I think the dimensions are similar to the maxi ... though there seems to be a huge price difference. I don't know the cost of a 228, but the jumbo reissue (227) is already $3600 vs. $3295 maxi caviar (and the jumbo is smaller). Does anyone own both? Can you tell me how you like one vs. the other? Do you prefer the single flap or the double flap? How do the bags hang on your shoulder? A little longer/shorter than the other? Which is easier to get into and use? Is the 228 a little heavier? Is the 228 more functional because of the extra pockets? Or more cumbersome because of the extra flap? I must admit, I am partial to the MM lock, which is why I looked at the reissue flap initially. But the maxi size was just awesome on. I think it had less pockets too, but out of all the Chanel bags I had tried, this one looked the best. I did not buy because I am a bit terrified of lambskin, but I also thought I would ask your opinions on the 228. Yes, that was a lot to read, wasn't it? Looking forward to your replies! I'm sure someone's gonna set me straight!
