How To Check Gucci Authenticity: A Few Starting Points

Other Brands

There are a lot of fake Gucci bags online given the fact that they are so sought-after nowadays. So either if you’re looking for the real deal or good Gucci replica bags, I think these Gucci authenticity tips will help you out.

Gucci Authenticity – Common Features

First of all, let’s start with the inside tag. All Gucci bags except the vintage ones feature a leather inside tag with the “Gucci Made in Italy” stamp on it and a registered trademarked circled “R”. So getting to know the font, deepness, spacing, positioning of the logo and that of the circled R really well will prove to be extremely useful for many Gucci styles. First of all, you need to make sure the font is correct and that the letters don’t touch each other. And here’s an interesting Gucci authenticity tip: the left side of the “U” in Gucci should be thicker than the right. But you should also check the letters “G” and the two Cs carefully.

Another interesting thing about this leather tab/label is that the seams across it match the color of the lining, not the color of the leather! But on any other leather trim on the bag the stitching should match the color of the leather.

The serial number should be on the back of this leather tabs and feature two rows of 6 numbers that are embossed close together. Make sure both rows are centered. Again, this rule does not apply to vintage Gucci bags!

Gucci replica bags have really blossomed this year, with all the new beautiful designs that have been released. The already iconic Dionysus bag, the Sylvie bag, the GG Marmont bag or the Gucci Padlock bag and all their numerous variations are some of the most coveted replica bags of the moment.

As I’ve told you before, if you’re trying to learn more about Gucci authenticity, the first site you should start your research with is the official Gucci site. They are quite generous with the pictures they show of each bag, which is really useful if you want to study the details of a certain Gucci bag.

If you are interested in Monogram Gucci bags, then the first thing you need to check is the Monogram GG canvas, of course. And here are some Gucci authenticity tips for you: even though the two Gs face each other and are really close, they should not be touching. Then you can notice that the horizontal line of each G forms a shape that looks like a triangle (reversed for the left G).

The same rules apply to the Gucci Guccissima leather as well. But please take into account that even though some guides say that the Monograms should line up even where the sides are stitched together, this is not true (just like in the case of the Monogram LV bags). What is true though is that the GGs will be the same throughout the handbag, which means the letters will have the same size, shape and font.

Here’s the bottom of the Gucci GG Supreme duffle bag. Notice how the monograms don’t line up around the stitching? Just so you know, I took the photo from the official Gucci site:

I know there are a lot of articles on how to check Gucci authenticity online and that can be confusing. Please keep in mind that many of these guides were written years ago, so some of the information there might not apply to new Gucci styles. Let’s take the fake Gucci duffle bag for example because I know this is still one of the most popular styles from the brand.

Finding cheap Gucci luggage used to be easier before for a reason. The Gucci Duffle bag made of canvas had textile lining and therefore the costs were not very high either. But things are different with the new Gucci duffle bags. The interior is made from “microfiber lining with a suede-like finish” which is harder to copy and also more expensive. So if you’re looking for cheap Gucci luggage, maybe you should stick to the older pieces.

You should, of course, check to see if the stitching is smooth and even. If you find uneven or sloppy stitching, the bag is probably a fake. Another general Gucci authenticity tip is to check the hardware engravings: clasps, zippers, bottom stud, hooks or any other engraved piece of hardware. The engraving should be clean, clear and the weight of the hardware is also important because authentic Gucci hardware is made of solid metal, so it should be on the heavy side. Needless to say that authentic Gucci hardware doesn’t rust or chip off.

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to offer more tips on Gucci authenticity for vintage bags. But I don’t feel like I have enough information, so I think it’s the right thing to do.

Which Bag are You Carrying Currently

Other Brands

As you might have noticed, it’s a Friday afternoon in June and those of you who haven’t yet managed to sneak out of work undetected probably don’t feel like doing much of anything. If that’s the case, then you’ve come to the right spot: we want to know what bag you’re currently carrying and what you think of it.

Right now, I’ve got my stuff in a Lancel Bianca Bag (full disclosure: the brand sent me this bag last year as a thank-you after I included Lancel on a list of designers to watch). I’ve been thinking about writing about the Bianca for months, despite the fact that we try to keep coverage of the bags we receive as gifts to a bare minimum for ethical reasons. It’s just that good–sleek, functional, classic, expensive-looking, the whole deal.

The longer I work in fashion, the more I find myself attracted to bags from brands that aren’t well-known in the US. Whether that means indie brands or designers whose work is best known overseas, it doesn’t really matter; I just crave variety and novelty (but not THAT kind of novelty). Lancel is a French brand with a long history that’s trying to expand its modern reach, and some of its bags are great.

Lancel-Bianca-Bag-Interior

The Bianca in particular is a standout; the bag reminds me a bit of the Céline Classic Box Bag in structure, with a rigid body that opens accordion-like under a top flap to reveal a series of compartments. The bag itself is compact, but the construction allows for a bit of expansion, and it holds far more than I expected, even in the PM size that I have.

Perhaps most importantly, someone compliments the bag or asks me who made it basically every time I wear it, which is the best testament I can give to its real-life attractiveness. If you want one of your own, you can pick one up for $1,125

So, now it’s your turn: what are you carrying and how do you feel about it? Would you recommend it to others? Let us know!

Welcome to June, bag lovers, and thank you for joining us for June’s first PurseForum Roundup. This week, we took some time to look at shoes and then went on to visit Céline, Coach and more. We are happy you joined us this week to see what we found!

Valentino-Rockstud-Wedding-Shoes

June is traditionally the month for weddings, so we thought we would kick it off with this wonderful shot from Jourai, who selected patent Valentino Rockstuds for her recent wedding. The Rockstud is one of the most popular shoes on the market at the moment, so it’s no wonder the Show Us Your Valentino Rockstudsthread always tops the charts in Shoes Shoes Shoes. If you are a fan of the Rockstud, or thinking of making your first purchase, do check into the Valentino Shoes subforum to read up on this hot style.

If you are curious about Valentino’s other shoe offerings, we have you covered in this thread, and of course our reference library has all you need to know (including great pricing intel) to shop for your favoriteValentino style.

Speaking of the lovely Céline Box, yinnie shared her new Box in gorgeous dark brick – a stunning color on a super stylish bag. To see how our members style their Célines, the Your Céline in Action thread is a must-see. One of our favorite bags is the Celine Trio, and we have a thread dedicated to this handy bag right here. Be sure to check out this lavender beauty from sexyladyy–it’s perfect for any season!

Coach-Small-Leather-Goods

If you read here, you know that we adore small leather goods (SLGs), and we found a bevy of them inCoach this week. This sweet little batch comes to us from a thread on the Skinny Tote; clever member morewineplease picked these along with her new bag, pictured here.

Coach-Tote

In the Your New Coach thread, we spotted this yummy saddle leather Crosby Carryall from GlamourLove. This thread has lots of the latest offerings from Coach, along with pre-loved and vintage finds as well. We think you will enjoy having a look at what’s new.

Coach-Hobo-Bag

Ms Baggins shared her amazing Nomad in the Which Coach Bag are You Carrying Today thread, and it’s too pretty not to share with you guys. We love this rapid-fire look at our members’ bags.

La-Mer-Beauty-Collection

We wandered over to The Beauty Bar and found some nice goodies in the Recent Beauty Purchases thread: loveydovey35 went to town at La Mer, and this purchase comes to us with some rave reviews, too. We also have an incredibly extensive Nail Care subforum, chock full of swatches, reviews and nail care tips. You can also find everything you need for your makeup needs in the Make-Up subforum, where we also have huge threads dedicated to Chanel, Dior, Urban Decay and more.

Rows-of-Flowers

Remember, there are also dozens of non-fashion areas to visit at the PurseForum. This week, the Game of Thrones thread in Television and Cinema has been busy with the latest from those crazy kids in the Seven Kingdoms. Our members are also keeping up with all the Housewives in the franchise, and Dallas is a particularly hot topic this week. Also in The Playground, you can check in on current events in Up to the Minute, which often has some lively discussions and debate. This week’s photo is from the Random Picture thread, another favorite place to visit, particularly if you are a fan of randomness. (Thanks for the tulip fields, south Tampa).

We hope this Roundup of bags and more has kicked your June off to a fashionably good start. Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead. We will be back next week with more from the PurseForum. See you then!
