Hope everyone has had a lovely holiday time with their family.

I need some advice in deciding. I want to get a coin purse but not sure which one to get! The options narrow down to 2:
- Caviar classic style with GHW (burgundy interior)
- Caviar boy style with brushed GHW (this is a cuba cruise item, so khaki green interior)

Which one would you choose? I only want one but like both! below are their photos, as well as a photo of my Chanel slgs I have so far.

Thanks so much!!

I love th Cuba collection. I would get the boy now since it is a seasonal item which may not be available later. I'd get the classic another time in the future ;) Would getting both be an option? lol :graucho:

I just got a classic in black lamb for the coin purse (it was in exchange for the classic flap cardholder that was one of the Christmas presents from Mr Man).

I like the look of the boy, but my reason for choosing the classic coin pouch is because I wanted it to sit flush inside my bags, as I have a small wallet (same quilted design except in blue lamb, another reason for it as they complement each other) in there as well. I think it comes down to your personal preference and what you may be using it in - they are both beautiful imho. Good luck picking and enjoy it!

I will go against the grain here and go for classic. I don't like boy slgs because the hardware sticks out too much. Feel like it will scratch up the interior of your bag.
It's funny you said that - I specifically line one side of the interior wall of my classic flap with thin felt to prevent scratches from hardware on the SLGs. I need help .

I have classic black caviar flap one and zipper one as well and both are so useful. I would go with classic zipper one but boy is nice too and won't go wrong either one. All of your SLG are so cute and pretty color :smile: Goodluck with your decision!

That's a good observation! I've been using my grey boy card holder but haven't paid attention to whether it scratches anything in my minis yet..

I would go for the classic! Although the boy is very pretty too!
omg that's what im thinking. the boy costs a bit extra too. If the boy has the burgundy interior I would have snatched it in a heartbeat!

I had a look at Chanel's measurements of the 2 on their website and the boy is about 1cm shorter in height than the classic. Probably because of the 3 stripes.

That's a good tip! lol
