We used to have a battle of the bags on our site and decided to bring it back for our Instagram followers and PB readers alike, because who doesn’t like hearing from others about what bag is best and why! It’s only fitting to start off with one of the most coveted bags, the Chanel Classic Flap, and another similar Chanel bag, the Reissue. Both are classic, both are timeless, both are a staple in any bag lover’s closet.

While the two bags are quite similar, there are a handful of telling differences. First, the closure on the Classic Flap features the double CC turn-style lock while the Reissue has the Mademoiselle lock (rectangular in shape). The chain handle on the Classic Flap has leather interwoven, while the Reissue is solely a chain handle. The leather is another tell-tale sign, with the Reissue featuring a more worn in leather which offers a more casual vibe. The sizes are different to help differentiate the bags and Reissues have double flaps on the inside.
