Replica Chanel Classic Flap Bag Full Review

When I think about the ultimate luxury bag, the first thing that comes to mind is the timeless and elegant Chanel classic flap. It’s a bag that has stirred some debate. Some people see it as a must-have, while others question its high price tag or say it reminds them of their grandma’s purse.

Ever since I started my blog and began sharing my designer bag collection, the Chanel classic flap has been one of the bag that I receive the most requests for replica reviews.

So today, I’ll be reviewing my replica Classic Double Flap Bag.

Additionally, I’ll be sharing tips on choosing 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 (perfectcclub@gmail.com).

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 excellent the quality of this Chanel knockoff bag 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 simply 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.

Stitch Count

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).

  • I gave it my all to find any sewing mistakes or sloppy stitches, but I couldn’t spot a single loose thread or weird stitch.

diamond quilting

We also need to check whether the diamond is too full

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.

  • This replica Chanel bag is really perfect. Quilt puffiness is neither too fat nor too flat. Really happy with the dimensionality of the puffs.


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 CC twist lock closure has that solid and substantial quality to it. And when you open or close it, the turn lock makes a nice clicking sound. 
  • 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 chain also glides through the holes pretty easily.
  • 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 microchip 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 bags to a Chanel store for verification?

To sum up

Overall I cannot seem to find anything “inaccurate” or “poor quality” with this bag. This fake Chanel bag totally nailed it in every aspect. Pictures don’t even do it justice. I absolutely love this bag and I’ve taken it with me on numerous outings and no one can tell it’s a fake. 

What do you think of this knockoff Chanel classic flap? Did you pick up any good tips for choosing high tier replica Chanel bag?

    Thanks for the wonderful review! Definitely makes me want to jump in on the buys one day, but I want black/beige/grey CF’s!

    Curious how heavy the CF is with all the chains.

    I have this same bag that i got from AE last year. still holding up well and durable for the most part but Idk if it was worth the price. it was my first purchase but the clasp has scratched easily and the inside of the bag where the CC is also scratched and peeling in some areas

    • Helen
      August 30, 2023 / 7:21 pm

      I got a wallet in black caviar from AE as well. The leather is so dry and tiff. Im trying to apply the conditioner and hope it will be softer. The leather looks not auth IMO.

    Do y’all have any tips on removing color transfer, I got some on my chanel classic flap and wanted to see if I could try and remove it this weekend

    • Anika
      August 31, 2023 / 12:05 pm

      I used a magic eraser on my auth dior bag and on the white leather seats in my car but never tried it on any Chanel bags. It worked really well to remove denim stains/color transfers.

    Great bag! FYI ladies. Zeko authentication says the stitches vary and authentic bags have different stitch count. I can’t see the stitches anyway and certainly can’t count them. Lollll I have a PCC Chanel 22 and the leather and quality is fantastic.

  6. Vivienne
    August 25, 2023 / 3:38 pm

    thanks for this great review! I have an identical auth bag, only beige, and I’ve been thinking about a black one for a long time, but I don’t want to spend so much money anymore…. I’ve had mine for 3 years, so far I don’t see fades, but inside the skin in one place is damaged … I think it’s from not fastening the middle button.

    Might you be able to do (or already did) a review of the beige Claire one?

    Since I already have a CF bag, what other Chanel bags have you guys been waiting to pull the trigger on?

      I guess I’ll start! I’m thinking I need a c19 from PCC in my life…just haven’t figured out which color I want yet!

      • Sena
        August 26, 2023 / 8:38 am

        I need one too!! Except I really want light pink and i don’t think they do that color 🧐

        • Cecelia Garcia
          August 28, 2023 / 3:41 pm

          Neon Pink Chanel 19, have to see if it’s available.

      • VedaSmith
        August 29, 2023 / 1:39 pm

        I have a caramel c19 and I love it. Gorgeous color and leather, matches a lot of my outfits, chic & young, and fairly a “low-maintenance” bag because of the color

    I’m trying to decide between caviar leather and lambskin for a small classic flap from PCC – does anyone have any recommendations for which is better repped? Thanks 🙏🏽

    • Lina
      August 25, 2023 / 1:04 pm

      I prefer lambskin since it’s just more beautiful and luxurious to me. And with lambskin you don’t have to worry about depth of stamping or whether the grain looks exactly like authentic.

    • Mariana
      August 31, 2023 / 6:07 pm

      I think you’re pretty safe with either from PCC as you won’t get the ‘perfect pebble’ on the caviar anywhere. The better choice would be the leather that will better suit your lifestyle – if you want to beat the bag up then caviar is the least resistant to scratches & general wear and tear. I have an auth lamb CF and I baby that thing like there’s no tomorrow because it picks up everything, including a simple fingerprint – but – I’m not a fan of the aesthetic of caviar so would always buy shiny, luxxy lamb and deal with the consequences!

    I got an auth medium CF and honestly I love it to death. It just feels a little different getting from the boutique vs resellers/reps 💕 It’s also my first big luxury purchase when I went to Paris with my partner so it was an extra special experience for me! But I also do love my reps too I feel that I do not need to baby them as much and they can serve their actual purpose of being a bag, especially lambskin ones 😂 Love your post, would give it a thousand likes if I could! 🥰

    I am ready to make my purchase but I keep contemplating silver hardware as I’m worried on the gold hardware being off. Sigh!!! Decisions , decisions, decisions !

    • Lulu Evans
      August 24, 2023 / 7:32 pm

      I had the exact same dilemma! Read so many reviews about how dark/yellow the GHW is and how SHW won’t chip that I was swayed to purchase SHW for the longest time. Glad I took a chance on the gold! Will probably buy another CF in SHW down the road to scratch that itch 😂

    Does anyone know the last year Chanel released the camel color in caviar leather? Looking at getting a mini flap in camel caviar with gold hardware but wasn’t sure how realistic this was for current offerings from Chanel.

    How luxurious that leather looks! Wow

    Hey I have an auth jumbo seasonal flap and my chains don’t slide through the grommets smoothly. You can hear the ticks of the chain hitting it.

  20. Kiki
    August 7, 2023 / 5:05 pm

    I’ve gone back-and-forth a lot on the hardware issue. I think they take away is that it’s not exactly the same, but it is indeed, very close.

    • Cecily Griffin
      August 9, 2023 / 2:42 pm

      Honestly, the authentic fades with time too. I wouldn’t worry about the gold hardware because that differs in the authentic too.

      • KIKI
        August 10, 2023 / 10:44 am

        Yes, thank you for the confirmation. I’ve heard that as well.

          August 13, 2023 / 7:45 pm

          The gold hardware on the authentic Chanel flaps all changes. All my auth bags with gold hardware have aged to a more “brass” color. And have lost that shiny bright gold color. Some more than others. So this is not unusual at all. I have also purchased a couple Chanel reps from PCC. I am completely BLOWN AWAY at the quality of these bags. The leather quality is dead on. The feel of the bag. The craftsmanship. The puffiness of the diamonds, the stitching, the weight of the chain, the weight of the bag. All EXACT. Just amazing.

          • Blair F
            August 14, 2023 / 4:48 pm

            Yes. I think we’re super critical of our bags at times and it’s just fine because real one have issues and deviations as well

            • Remi
              August 23, 2023 / 11:50 am

              This is SO TRUE. I go over my rep bags with a fine toothed comb. But when I’ve purchased auth bags, I just make the purchase and walked out. Since buying reps, I haven’t carried my auth bags as often. I got them out and looked them over like I do my reps. What a surprise! Wonky stitches. Messy blind stamps. And several other things I’d never noticed or paid any attention to! My point is, none of these bags are perfect. The auth bags (most of the higher end ones) are handmade and there will be variations. Not necessarily “flaws”. Same with the higher end rep bags.

          • KIKI
            August 17, 2023 / 8:47 pm

            Such valuable feedback. I really love hearing from owners of authentic bags. You get so much insight that you just can’t get from looking at the bags in store, and certainly not from looking at pictures. Thanks!

    Hi everyone, Longtime lurker, getting ready to buy my first bag!
    I’ve seen several great posts on here regarding the importance of buying a bag that fits your lifestyle/needs.

    I also grew up in a rural area, no designer bags whatsoever. I currently live in a VHCOL city and see designer everywhere, but I don’t know much about them and am trying to stay up to speed.

    Honestly – I don’t want to look silly. I’m 23 and have my first corporate job, where I work remote. Personally, I love the style of the classic Chanel CF, especially lambskin.

    Is it ridiculous to wear a Chanel CF as an everyday bag? Would it be poor taste to wear it with athleisure or the grocery store? Can I wear it to a bar?

    • Knox
      August 8, 2023 / 10:21 am

      I do it all the time 😁…. I think we tend to put designer bags on a pedestal, but realistically if you bought the bag just wear it how ever you feel fit. That’s what you would do with an authentic bag. Confidence is the biggest defence against a call out IMHO.

      • Maddox
        August 15, 2023 / 10:18 am

        100% on the confidence! Also, if someone was wealthy enough to have tons of designer bags, it’s not like they would then buy a cheap crappy one for when they’re going out in sweats or leggings, they would still use their normal bags!

    • Athena Phillips
      August 11, 2023 / 9:19 am

      Not sure how helpful this is, but I’ve seen a lady in my city wear the CF with her hair in a messy ponytail, old t-shirt, shorts, and a flipflop, and of course no makeup on. Looking at her, it seemed quite clear that it’s just a bag to her, and that is how I aspire to treat all my bags.

      I’m having the same thoughts as others. That it’s an amazing bag. I think it’s a great first buy. Great price. Excellent reviews so you feel confident buying it.

      My only concern is that it will make the rest of what I’m wearing with it look inadequate. Lol I will have to re-examine and revise my whole look/wardrobe. Though maybe that would be just the thing I need.

    July 17, 2023 / 9:06 am

    As a newbie reper I really appreciate your review, and the fact that you take into account the quality and the “call-outable” features. I’m totally going to buy this beauty!

    I think it looks great. I have the same from a couple of years back with SHW and the leather is much more dry. I haven’t really done anything with it – will try leather honey at some point

    Did anyone buy this from PCC? I tried to do a wire transfer but they asked me if I know the person I’m sending money, the bill, description of the item. Is it okay to tell them a purse, a friend, no receipt yet?

    June 22, 2023 / 11:30 pm

    I was trying to do money a wire transfer today but they asked me if I know the seller, if I have a receipt and the description of item I’m buying. I never done wore transfer and I was nervous. How did you do yours?
