I even cut out the dimensions on paper, compare the size of that piece of paper to see how it would look with my size (I am petite) in front of the mirror. Thank god my husband wasn't there otherwise he would think I am crazy!

^ I cut the sizes out on paper to, tucking them under my arm to see how they would work purse wise. See, were perfect 2.55 nuts! Just what this thread was made for.

I just came back from our local Chanel store and I paid my 50% deposit. I'm so so so excited about it!! Managed to take some pictures of the 4 sizes we're carrying here.

I reckon too. I'm getting A30225 in Grey and the receipt of mine reads A30225Y0392963803.

Same as me! I am waiting for the same size and color as you. So where is the chanel store you go to? I forgot which country.... And how's the grey in reality?

hikarupanda, I'm in Singapore. And there's only one store here.

Even after viewing all three colours, I was determined to get the grey. As I mentioned before I never had a grey bag so this is something unique IMO. The grey in real life is exactly what I wanted: versatile. It's a perfect colour whether you're in formal (suits) or informal (jeans) attire. I love how the chain and the lock look. I used to have a denim 2.55 which I sold it off eventually with the similar chain and lock but it was not as vintage looking as this. It also happens to be the greatest-in-demand colour in our country.

I was actually contemplating to get A30226 as I like to put lotsa things (wallet, cell, card holder, lippie etc) in my bag but my SA advised that A30225 is great as an evening bag. Plus it's the original size of what Coco Chanel had designed.

rhiannonmars, thanks!! That's really nice of you. Actually I have no idea what giving karma does.

^ I think karma is just a nice way of promoting helpful and positive postings. I guess it's like a "pat on the back".

Thanks for starting this very informative thread, rhian, and thanks all for contributing

Vintage_princess.. a question.. how do you find your bag, for holding things you need onn a daily basic? Which model did you choose? What kind of chlothes does it go with/don't go with?

This is really for anyone to answer, im just asking Vintage because she's got the black that im considering.
