In my Stilleto magazine they show the 1955 2.55 and it has a chain strap. Let me locate that pic. I have it scanned somewhere!

Edited to add: (this is from the ebay auction, but is from a magazine I own that says this is an old 2.55)

Yea, I have that magazine too and I saw that pic as well. I think originally 2.55 has chain strap, then later they woven the leather in.

Personally I actually like the chain strap more than the strap with leather woven in.

^ I love the new chain strap. It makes it so much more unique! It's like jewelry. I'm gaga over it.

If everyone can be patient with me, I'll try to update that asap. I might try to visit a boutique this week and get the real lowdown on the price/size/style number issue we are still having. From what I can tell, everyone is still confused about this. I'll make it a priority to try to help people clear this up. (any help on this issue is greatly appreciated)
Rhian, I think if you call the 1-800 number on the website, the customer service associates may be able to give you price/size/style information. Although it is always fun to visit the boutique. Just a thought. Great pics! Thanks!

^ I think we got the size thing under control with hikarupanda's post and my old specs I got from a Chanel corporate person. I did call the 1800 # and they were pretty clueless about sizes. They only had model #'s and actually told me they couldn't disclose sizes. I suspect because of people who make fake bags?! I had Luna update the first post to reflect all the size/price/model # issues. I'll visit NM this weekend though, more just cause I'm obsessed and can't leave those poor SA's alone!

I'm the same! Lucky for you! My store only has 2 more of the 225, while I'm on the waiting list for the 226. Meaning, they will try to find a 226 for me, if I really want it. However, once they have located the bag, I have to get it since they specially find the bag for me (yah right).

However, if I want the 225, I need to get it now, or once the 2 are gone, I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it.

I thought I've set my sight on the 226 because I don't really fancy small bags. However, having the original 2.55 in the original size is a little different.

I can't decide!!

I don't know about the real original strap. The picture that Cloud9 posted is almost the same as mine, no? The 2.55 on the left?

Well, that's something to keep us occupied for a while, before we get our hands on the bag. Oh I hope it won't be an anticlimax after I got my bag.

kare - Has the SA told you when can they let's you know if they will find the 256 for you? Otherwise the 255 only slightly smaller than the 256 according to the dimension.

They said in 2 weeks' time.

What I'm really afraid is I may end up with nothing if I decide to wait for the 226, and then they can't locate one for me.
