Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag Review

Categories:Other Brands

Two of the most recognizable and loved models Chanel ever created are the Chanel jumbo classic flap and the medium flap. They come as diverse as it can, with a lot of different colors, leathers and chains. They are very easy to sell and often out of stock so don’t be very pick and make up your mind quickly about the style you like the best.

You already know that I am very fastidious when it comes to the purses I choose to buy or to wear. For me the jumbo size of this model is perfect. It has just enough space to carry all my stuff without having to worry about not getting something important with me because of the lack of room. I consider the medium size of the Chanel classic flap too small, there is just enough space inside it to carry only the essentials and maxi flap is too large for me. The jumbo one is just between these two last versions and it perfectly satisfies my needs.

The colors you can choose from for the Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag are very diverse: black, beige, white, pink (rarely), green, silver, light blue, brown and red. The most desired one is the black in caviar, but unfortunately it gets often out of stock, so you should be prepared to get another color, another size or even another model if the one you decided for is not available anymore. You shouldn’t be sad though; Chanel has a lot of gorgeous bag models to offer.

Even if I am not a huge fan of black purses, I certainly understand the reason why people go for this option. The black bag can accessorize any outfit, it just looks great on anything you decide to wear and if you don’t like it, or you just decide to replace it with a new model there is a huge market out there and you can re-sell it to someone else.

The chains of the Chanel jumbo classic flap can be gold or silver. I don’t think that you should take this decision following the crowd, if you like silver you should go for silver and if you wear gold then gold is the color you should choose for the chains. Some people are asking which one is the most popular. They both are, you should just pick the one that fits you best. Chanel doesn’t change the chains, so if you decide for silver or gold that will be the color of the chains for your bag.

One more aspect you have to take into consideration when you but the Chanel jumbo classic flap is the type of leather. This bag comes in two versions: lambskin and caviar. The lambskin is just gorgeous, so soft, chic and with such a royal appearance. But it is not a very durable material, it gets scratched very easy. On the other hand the caviar looks great; it is a resistant material but is not as soft as the lambskin. So if you intend to buy this purse for a daily usage you should go for the caviar, if you only want to wear it occasionally just go for the lambskin.

I am sure that if you’ll buy this Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap  bag in any version you like the best you will be very happy with it. It is a gorgeous purse, one that pleases the most fastidious critics. It is very easy to wear and it has enough room for anything you need to carry with you daily.

Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag Review

Categories:Other Brands


The Chanel jumbo classic flap and the medium flap are two most famous handbags of the Chanel timeless collection. They come with different colors, leathers and chains. The toughest decision you will ever make is to pick the right style. But then again, the Chanel jumbo and medium flap are very quickly out of stock, so you might not want to be very picky.

I find the Chanel jumbo flap bag the best size you can have. The medium flap bag can only hold your most important essentials and no more than that, while the maxi flap bag is too big. The Chanel jumbo is somewhere near the medium, but a bit larger of course. You can pack all your essentials and there is a slight room for some extra’s. That’s good enough for me.

The most popular Chanel medium and jumbo flap style
From experience at Bragmybag, the most common pick of the classic flap bag is black in caviar. Some people love golden hardware while others love silver.

The Chanel classic flap collection comes in four different sizes: the small flap, the medium/large flap, the jumbo flap and the maxi flap.
The first decision you must make is the right color. The Chanel classic bag comes in different colors, also dependent on the season:

- Black
- Beige
- White
- Pink (rare)
- Green
- silver
- light blue
- brown
- red

Everyone is screaming for the black in caviar. But a lot of people get disappointed because they are out of stock. Make sure you have a back-plan. What if they don’t your dream bag in stock, would you settle for a different color, different size, maybe a different type.

At Bragmybag, we have a lot alternatives bags that looks like the classic flap bag. You need to take your time and read our articles, so that you know what bags are available. There a lot of nice members in our community who would love to share their thoughts and the location where you can find your favorite bag. Like the extensive conversation we are having at Chanel products and information comment sections.

Why do people love Chanel classic flap in black? 
This might be an obvious question, but black is the safest color you can get. Chanel in black melt with all your styles in the wardrobe, it looks great on everything. And if you don’t like it, there’s a huge market to re-sell it to someone else.

I also highly recommend you buy your Chanel classic flap bag in black it’s your first time.

Left is silver hardware and right is golden hardware

What about the chains?
You don’t have much choice on the hardware, it’s just gold and silver right now. But still, what if you make a mistake? Which one should you choose?
I once received an email from a member: ‘Which hardware is the most famous, gold or silver?’. To be honest, I can’t answer that question, because there is an equal amount people who love the bag in gold as well as in silver.
It’s better to pick a hardware that you like than following the crowds. Do you usually wear silver or gold? Is it silver? Then pick the silver chain, if not pick the golden chain. They both looks great.

One note:
One of our members asked the SA in an Chanel boutique whether it’s possible to change the silver chain into the golden chain. Usually SA will reject your offer, but sometimes they can check what they can do. Generally, once you settle on a hardware, you can’t change it anymore.

I love silver because it neutralize the bag. It doesn’t scream for attention like the golden hardware. But the golden hardware does really looks cute with black. So it depends on your personal taste what you like.

Left is lambskin and right is caviar

Choosing Your Leather
So far, I haven’t met any people who have difficulty in picking the right leather. What leather you should choose depends on how you are going to use the bag and personal taste of course.
The most common leather to choose are caviar and lambskin. Let’s covers some good stuff and bad stuff:

What leather you are going to settle has a huge impact on your overall experience. Though both leather is embossed in the Chanel classic flap bag, the appeals are totally different.

Chanel Lambskin
Om my gosh, the Chanel lambskin is butterly soft. You will love it. If you touch it, you can actually feel the chic’ness, the royalty appeal. The lambskin is also much lighter than the caviar.

But there’s a catch: you might notice that the lambskin is easier to get scratched than the caviar. But that’s the price you have to pay.

Chanel Caviar
No one wants their Chanel bag to get abused, so most people choose caviar. The caviar feel very rough and the it’s heavier. But it’s more durable than the lambskin.

How to choose the right leather?
What is your personal preferences? Some people already knows what they want. But if not, you can ask yourself: ‘Is it going to be an everyday bag or for special occasions’. If it’s an everyday bag, I recommend buying in Chanel caviar. If not, then I recommend the lambskin.

If the lambskin was more durable, I bet everyone would choose lambskin. The softness and the chic appeal is irresistible. You can’t replace that feeling.
