Chanel in many ways is one of the most desired designers on Earth and their bags are a must-have for any purse-obsessed gal (or guy). It’s obvious why it is one of the brands that I receive the most requests for replica reviews – the price of authentic Chanel bags can be prohibitive as they seem to only be increasing over the years.
Therefore, I plan on doing a rep collection post showing how all my Chanel replica bags have held up over the years, and which ones I would recommend the most based on my personal usage. Before that, let’s talk about the most well-known and popular Chanel bag – the Classic Double Flap Bag.
Additionally, I’ll be sharing tips on how to choose a fake Chanel bag that looks remarkably similar to the authentic version.
Basic Info of my fake Chanel
Color & Leather
I chose black lambskin in gold hardware (popular models tend to be more well-done). Although lambskin is soft and easy to scratch, it’s really beautiful compared to calfskin! I think lambskin is so chic and sophisticated, and I just love how soft it is.
For size, I decided to go with the medium size. Since I’m 5’5”, I thought this medium size would fit my height perfectly without “overwhelming” me. Of course, if you are tall, or you need to carry lots of things in your daily life, you can consider the Jumbo size which is much roomier!
Although I didn’t compare the prices from other sellers, I must say it’s a little bit higher than I expected (that is the rule if you are going for top quality). The bag was $625 (with free shipping) and was ordered from PCC (firstname.lastname@example.org).
However, considering the authentic is $8800 USD you could safely say it can still be considered a “steal” considering the amazing quality.
Detailed review of the Chanel replica
Quality & Leather
I have to admit I am impressed by how great the quality of this Chanel knockoff is. For a second, I thought my husband ordered an authentic Chanel to surprise me. LOL.
The first thing to check is leather. No chemical smell, which means the seller didn’t fool me by saying they only use real leather. And the supple and rich lambskin is SO soft and smooth like a baby’s face. I just couldn’t get my hands off it.
See it from the side, the structure, and the shape are perfect. From top to bottom, it gets wider like the real deal.
The bottom of the bag is also handled very well. Although it has no feet, it can easily stand without falling.
Another important factor to decide how “real” a fake Chanel bag can be is the stitch count on each individual diamond quilting.
A good replica Chanel handbag should have a high stitch count of at least 8 stitches in each diamond quilting. Anything less than this and you have a subpar knockoff on your hands (unless of course, the bag you are looking at is the large stitch models which purposefully have fewer stitches per quilting).
We also need to check whether the diamond is too full. This Chanel bag is really perfect.
I was especially fascinated by the quilting production technology of the classic diamond pattern as the manufacturer must be very careful during this process, otherwise, a single diamond may not be done well, and it will affect the use of the entire leather.
Further, an improper filling of materials within the diamond will destroy the overall fullness and shape of the diamond. So each diamond must be done just perfectly right. I have seen some bags with particularly plump diamonds which makes the bag look super fake.
Over the years, I have seen some inferior replicas, which are very dull in terms of hardware, and the hardware is often a big flaw that allows expert eyes to spot a fake. I feel like silver would have been a more demure choice but I was feeling bold when shopping for this bag and went for gold hardware.
The hardware on the bag I received is nice and heavy. You can see how the gold hardware contrasts beautifully against the black lambskin.
The joints of the chain are neatly cut – even if you don’t look closely you can’t see a small joint. It also has a good weight and doesn’t seem cheap or any lesser than an authentic Chanel bag.
The detailing on the hardware is also quite intricate matching the minute details and designs on the metal of the original bag.
Now, let’s take a look from the inside. Gladly, the zipper on the first flap works smoothly.
The leather is fitted tight, I don’t see any creases, bumps, or bubbles.
The burgundy interior is as soft as the leather outside, and if you’ve ever touched the inside lining of a Chanel bag yourself, you’ll know the texture I’m talking about.
There are some replicas with overly red lining – that’s not right & a red flag.
There is a sewn CC logo on the interior of the second flap, the widths of each C are equal and they also match the width of the gap between them perfectly.
And right beneath this logo, you will find a stamp in gold – CHANEL; MADE IN FRANCE. The font looks exactly like the original Chanel.
As with any replica, if you look at the details and find high levels of accuracy, you will be able to gauge how good of a replica bag you have on your hands.
The laser label has been replaced with a chip to verify the authenticity. The chip can only be scanned at the counter, but this is not a detail I care about.
I know some shoppers care about this stuff but I never have – I mean unless someone has a specific intent why would they take their replica to a Chanel store for verification?
Thanks for reading my review, and let me hear in the comments below what you think about this Chanel handbag.
Is the texture of Leather same? the fake and real? Just curious. Thanks for this so informative!
I walked into a Chanel store hoping to finally get my first Chanel, but then I noticed the similarities to the replicas, and the prices had gone up a lot. I figured now was the best time to buy a quality replica. So I ordered a bag from the seller you recommended and I am actually very happy that I got a lot of compliments on my Chanel boy bag and that I still have money in my pocket, thanks to your review.
Anyone who bought the replica Chanel flap, can I ask how long it takes for the bag to arrive? Thx
I ordered on the 4th May, they dispatched on the 11th and it arrived on the 26th 🙂
It’s longer than I expected, but thanks for letting me know. If you don’t mind, can I ask you about the quality of the bag you received? and do you like it?
Thanks in advance
So glad I’m seeing a review like this without any judgement. Low income people deserve to carry nice looking bags and there shouldn’t ever be any judgement.
Can’t believe it looks even better than my real Chanel flap
How does the gold chain looks like compare your original? Thanks
Tbh I can’t see any difference, color looks a bit brighter in the pic. But I guess that’s normal, because my bag has been with me for five or six years already.
The soaring price of Chanel bags seems more like a result of inflated demand rather than their actual value. People are willing to empty their wallets just to be seen with that iconic box.
Where did you get that gorgeous bag?? this is the best Chanel replica I have seen!
I got my Chanel bag from PCC
lambskin does feel a lot nicer than calfskin
Man, can you believe how ridiculously overpriced the Chanel classic flap has become compared to their actual value?
I can’t help but wonder if the hype around Chanel bags has created a bubble in the luxury market. People are paying way more than they should just because everyone else is doing it.
What a thorough review! Thank you!
your bag looks so gorgeous!! can’t wait to order one
Seriously, the cost of a Chanel bag is way out of line with what it’s really worth.
this fake Chanel bag is so elegant and beautiful.
The bag definitely looks like an anth to me
Gorgeous fake chanel bag, so well-made, I love the look of the leather and the quilting
Other than the classic flap bag, what else do you guys love the most?
Dark Green Chanel 19 handbag!! Love at first sight with this color
Need a Chanel bag for a wedding next month, this replica would save me a lot
Can you also do a review of the Chanel 2.55?
YESS!!! PLEASEEE ANGIE I NEED THAT TOO
Yeah, sure. I will write a review once I have a Chanel 2.55. ☺️
Any advice on how to care for the leather?
Keep them away from rain or water!!
I’m torn between classic flap and 2.55
I love the classic look of Chanel bags, but I don’t love the high price.
Anyone had any experience with the Chanel Boy bag and how it wears? Maybe I should buy a fake one first?
I have one, it’s sturdy enough so it should hold up well over time as long as you take good care of it.
the replica looks great!
Chanel bags are iconic, but the price tag is hard to justify.
You just got new subscriber honey. Keep it up with these reviews!
Thank you Harper! You made my day.
I’m interested in buying a Celine knockoff, but not sure where to start. Can you recommend any specific sellers or websites that you’ve had good experiences with?
Hi, I have a list of the sellers I have tried and recommended, click here to check whether they have the bag that you want. Good luck!
Excellent review!! ❤
Def do more of these love it
I love the quality and craftsmanship of Chanel bags, but I don’t love the idea of spending a small fortune on a single bag.
I honestly don’t support fake luxury, BUT with unrealistic price increases from all LUXURY HOUSES-they are making us to turn into getting one. As long its leather and hardwares not cheap looking…
wow , that looks so good , just curious , what exactly can you fit in your medium size bag , ive just bought a medium kurt geiger bag & i can only just get everything in , the things i carry is , a small umbrella , small purse , samsung mobile , 2 pairs of glasses , my compact tablet box , a small antibacterial spray , small packet of tissues , i think i could do with a bigger bag lol , i can’t quite put my finger on it , but i think most women would love to own a chanel bag , ive got a karl largerfeld bag which is like the chanel but alot heavier , & actually hurts my shoulders , but i’m still not happy , maybe it’s the name we love so much .
Sounds like your kurt can fit quite a lot. I usually don’t pack my bag too full, so I just put keys, my phone, wallet, sunglasses, lip gloss, and hand sanitizer in it.
How did you pay when you ordered to Hannah? She’s asking to pay through wire transfer. Thank you
I also paid via wire transfer.
Ok thank you! Is the bag still good after using for a while? Any tarnishes on the chains? T thank you…
Yes, the bag is still in good condition, no tarnishes on the chains or anything else like that. Only a few tiny scratches on the lock but that’s common wear & tear.
Now I hear people say that leathers change season to season. So Isn’t it hard to compare the leather unless it’s a bad/obvious fake?
I would say yes. coz the reps are soo good now
Why pay 8k for a purse? How ridiculous is that?
I’m torn between buying silver hardware or gold hardware
It’s hard to pay $10k when a dupe is just a few hundred dollars and I can’t tell the difference. You can buy a real box to put your fake in if that’s important.
That fake Chanel bags is well worth the price!
I have a real Chanel classic flap. I cannot believe this rep look soooooo real! The details are excellent
there are good replicas and horrible replicas, I guess this is a great one
I think the fakes are worth buying, but if you have enough money, you can buy genuine Chanel bags as a collection. But for everyday use, it is perfectly fine to use a fake bag to protect the authentic bag from wear and tear
I’ve tried so many different replica bags in the past, but nothing looks that good like this one.
I must say that replica is on point ladies if you can’t afford the real deal it’s ok to get a fake!!
I have this exact chanel purse in my closet! I’m so ready to get it out and compare it with yours lol
LOL, how did it go? I’m thinking about buying one from them
I am also curious, can you please tell us how they compare please?
It would have been hard to tell if there wasn’t an authentic bag right next to it.
it’s shocking how similar this fake chanel exist
I would buy the replica in a heartbeat.
I have a fake Prada messenger bag I brought in NYC over 10 years ago. I can’t tell the difference. It’s just a bag and I don’t think anyone can tell either. I just know it’s lasted a hell of a long time. This is great review. Wouldn’t mind buying a fake chanel as well. Lol
I just ordered from PCC last night! ️ can’t wait for it to come home!
please let us know
The bag arrived a little later than I expected. But the leather feels nice and quality is very good.
How did you pay when you ordered? They don’t have return policy right? Thank you
I have a fake Classic Flap and I love it, sometimes I wonder if mine is the real one or not but my supplier assured me that it’s fake and I was ok with it.
I need a larger bag so I get a Chanel 22 handbag. I’m satisfied with my order and will be ordering again.
That’s a real good rep! I wanted a jumbo size since the medium is too small for me.
Chanel needs to understand that raising their prices up so high is just going to push someone to purchase a replica when they really want to purchase authentic.
I’ve seen replica Chanel Classic Flap and honestly, it is hard to tell if they are real or fake at a glance.
Order arrived in good time. Delighted with my cute Chanel rep. Quality exceeded expectation. Honestly delighted.
where did you order from
I would love to have a real chanel one! But I will just settle with the replica cause i don’t want to pay 9k for the bag and can only put $50 in my wallet hahahaha
I actually believe your fake chanel bag is stronger material than real one lol.
I will never judge someone carrying a counterfeit as long as they didn’t get scammed and payed for a real one price. These bags are insanely expensive.
I don’t feel comfortable with replicas but I stay away from 10k leather bags as they’re a scam, sadly their quality has decreased alongside with prices going up. Brands may need to learn a lesson here.
Personally I would rather invest that 10K into gold. 10K branded bag won’t make me richer.
I already have a real Chanel bag, but thinking about getting another one without costing a lot, so I bought myself a small hobo bag after browsing the website for a while. The bag is so cuteee. The leather is soft as the auth. I’m happy with my purchase
Hi Sabrina, what website(s) did you purchase your Chanel bag or other replicas?
Hi Donna, I got my Chanel from the same website that this blog post mentioned above. Look for PCC. Sorry for the late reply, I didn’t know I have a follow up comment. Just thinking about getting another bag so checking the review again lol. I will also leave you the link.
If you don’t have a real Chanel Bag to compare, it’s very hard to tell!
I got one original chanel classic flap from my mom as a gift when the price was still acceptable but still I am so so scared to take it out. it’s pity I have been thinking about buying replica for long time so If something happened to it I don’t feel that bad lol
days of the replica bags having bad stitching, off marks, cheap feel, etc. are gone.
I had the most pleasant shopping experience with perfectcclub. Yes I had some nerves but I decided to take the plunge and order my first Chanel replica, I love this pink one and I am so so happy with my bag. I could not recommend them more!
I saw a comparison video, and the chanel replica’s holes for the straps is perfectly aligned in the middle of the diamonds while the real one is off. That’s pleasantly surprising.
The chanel knockoff has really good quality! Totally worth buying one!
I love your fake chanel purse, its gorgeous!
God, the real Chanel Classic Flap extremely over-price.
right, it’s just a bag. I don’t understand why….
If I saw this fake chanel bag out in the world I’d have no reason to think it was a fake.
What a great detailed review.
I remember reading something once about celebrities carrying fakes as part of their ‘celebrity costume’ because they only carry high-end bags as part of their celebrity ‘look’ and not because of an interest in luxury fashion. It really makes you think.
This is the real deal! Look how prefect it is!!!! It is nearly identical in every other detail. This was my very first rep purchase and I’m so glad I did. I’m already planning my next order!
Omg, that golden shine on that chanel replica! I would have thought that’s a vintage from far!
Hi, love your bag！Do you know if this is real leather?
What an interesting insight!! It is so crazy how these fake designer bags are becoming more and more accurate and hard to spot as time goes on.
I tried getting access to perfect c club but I wasn’t able to connect with them on WeChat or any email listing. Is there another way?
How do you order? It’s Chinese language , can’t understand:(
Hello The Purse Queen.
Firstly, thank you so much for the blog. Saves so much time and it is written so well..
Secondly, how do I purchase from this website? I have written an email, no response yet, and the website doesn’t have “buy now” button, so I’m a little bit lost.
Love your thorough research and advice. Where could someone get gorgeous, well made designer footwear? Thank you!!
Why didn’t the blogger mention where to get this beautiful bag from?
Sorry everyone!There’s a lot of comments on the blog and it’s easy to miss some.
I ordered from PCC (email@example.com). already updatedin my article : )
Do you have some recommended site where i can order a high quality replicas for chanel and gucci?
