February 4, 2021 3 Quick Ways to Spot a Real Gucci Handbag

We hope you’re enjoying our blog series on designer handbag authentication. Today we’re sharing 3 quick ways to spot a real Gucci handbag. The internet offers a wealth of knowledge on this subject, and we really like this guide from Bagvanity. Often times though, a quick glance is all you need to determine if a Gucci handbag is real. Here are the 3 things you should examine first.

1. Inspect the Interior Fabric.

Since replica makers put their focus on getting the outside of the bag just right (which they often do really well), they skimp on the interior of the bag. A real Gucci handbag shows excellence throughout, which means a high-quality interior fabric with clear logos.

2. Confirm Only One Gucci Logo is Used.

Both the touching G logo and overlapped G logo are officially Gucci, but you won’t see both used on the same handbag.

3. Ensure the Interior Tag Engravings are Flawless.

Again, a replica handbag maker will ignore the fine details of a Gucci bag interior. The interior tag will have an unscratchable, well-aligned logo on the front and a clear unscratchable serial number on the back.

Some Examples

Below are examples of Gucci handbags, shoes, wallets, and belts that we’ve authenticated in our stores. Notice the quality craftsmanship throughout.
