Chanel Le Boy Bag: Everything You Need to Know Guide!

The Chanel Le Boy bag was destined to be an icon ever since its Spring 2012 release. Although it is still considerably new, the Le Boy has etched a permanent place in Chanel’s modern legacy, while still fitting in with Chanel’s classic lineup. The bag’s design is based on a hunting cartridge style originally carried by Coco Chanel herself.

The Chanel Boy bag is designed to embody the androgynous charm the designer herself was known for. Of his inspiration for the name, Karl Lagerfeld has said, “Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel.”

Aside from the historical precedent of the bag, the laid back bag’s appeal feeds into the younger millennial generation’s cravings for the brand, as continuous playful variations are released every season.

Below we have compiled a reference guide for your viewing pleasure in our Everything You Need to Know Guide for the Chanel Boy bag.

10 Ways to Tell if Your Chanel Bag is Fake (Real vs. Fake Comparison)

They say “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” but we say “hell hath no fury like a woman who just found out her bag is fake”. Perhaps it’s a bit of an exaggeration but we all can imagine the gut wrenching feeling of purchasing your dream Chanel bag only to find out it is a knockoff. Read our 10 key tips below to help authenticate your Chanel bag below.

1. Look at the leather!

Chanel bags are famous for the quality of their leather. Whether it be buttery smooth lambskin or pebbled caviar leather, the quality should be top notch. The same goes for their bags made with fabrics like tweed. Basically if the quality of the leather or fabric seems off it may be possible your bag is fake, especially if you purchased it as a gently used or new bag.

2. Look at the stitch count!

If your bag is an authentic Chanel it should have more than 10 stitches per inch. This is considered a high stitch count, and anything below this usually indicates the bag is fake. Replica manufacturers do not usually put the same care into crafting the bag as their authentic counterparts do, and in the case of Chanel specifically a low stitch count makes the bag look “puffier”. So grab your bag and start counting the stitches!

3. Look at the chain strap!

Chanel Reissue Replica Bag Review

Sound the alarms! Chanel is one of the most requested replica reviews I am consistently  asked to provide by blog readers. However since I had a couple of good Chanel replicas I purchased years ago (in a caviar jumbo double flap in black, a beige lambskin double flap, a Le Boy, a WOC, and a GST) I put off buying any new Chanel bags. I will do a rep collection post soon showing how all my Chanel replica bags have held up over the years, and which I would recommend the most based on my personal usage. However this post will focus on a bag I recently fell for – the Chanel Reissue bag – which I think it is very stunning and sublime.
