Please remember that, selling fake carries huge risks with many legal obligations.

CHANEL 1- Classics always have 2 kinds of leather type: lamb or calf leather. 2- Lamb leather is soft and flawlessly smooth and calf leather is strong, has a rough surface and more durable. 3- Chain should be hard, heavy and strong. And the leather passing through the chain should be the same leather of bag itself. 4- There are 2 kinds of classic Chanel bags. a- 2.55 designed by Mademoiselle Gabrielle Chanel : has square lock, to be safe and easy at the same time. Has two sections. b- 11.12 designed by Karl Lagerfeld, added CC lock. 5- All classic bags has a partition with a zip inside of the cover when you are opening. The pocket part is designed upwards. This has a story: during world war II, Chanel wanted ladies to hide the letters received by their lovers in this pocket. Because once you open the zip, everyone looks below, no one checks it upwards. 6- Logo has to be flawless! Letters are in the same color of the accessories. 7- Classics have little pocket part in the back also. 8- Stiches are made by hand, due to this they have to be thick and clearly seen. And flawlessly follow each other. 9- Chain has two options to use. Longer single or shorter double. 10- Big Shopping bag models don’t have zip or is not to be closed at top. They also have zipped section inside. 11- Classic bags has dark claret red inner. And this never changes. 12- They all have card of authenticity.
