Ever since the debut of Chanel's Le Boy bag in Spring 2012, the bag has been an instant classic. To meet high demand, Chanel has released boy flaps in many different leathers, fabrics, colors, and sizes. The most common sizes include small, old medium, new medium and large. And, the most difficult decision when purchasing your first Chanel boy bag is what size to get!
The first thing to consider when shopping for a classic boy bag is how much you'll need the bag to carry.
Small- 7.9 x 4.7 x 3.1 inches
This petite beauty will support all the essentials like a compact wallet, cellphone, keys and maybe a couple small pieces of makeup. In size, it is very similar to the classic mini bag.
Old Medium- 9.8 x 5.9 x 3.5 inches
This stunning size seems to look classic on everyone. It can hold a long wallet, cellphone, keys, charger, small tablet and several cosmetic pieces.
New Medium- 11 x 7 x 3.5 inches
The new medium can hold quite a lot and will meet most people's requirements for an everyday bag. An example of what can be contained in the new medium include: long wallet, small tablet, cellphone, keys, chargers, sunglasses, notebook, and several cosmetic pieces.
Large- 11.8 x 8.3 x 3.9 inches
The large boy is proportionally similar to the classic jumbo. For those who treat their bags like portable toolboxes, this is a great bag, because it can carry quite a bit! An example of what might be inside a large boy include: long wallet, lotions, sunglasses, notebook, small snacks, small umbrella, cellphone, keys, chargers, and many pieces of makeup.
But, you know what oftentimes trumps functionality and how much a bag can hold? How cute it is! At the end of the day, a Chanel boy bag is made for beauty and to turn heads. And, there's no better way to figure out your preference with side by side comparisons of people wearing these bags!
For the Le Boy flap bag style, I personally gravitate towards the small and old medium. But, only you can decide your own preference. What catches your eye the most? :)
