Gucci makes fine designer purses and handbags. As one of the most sought-after fashion companies in the world, it's no wonder that Gucci bags garner hefty prices. As a result, there are many replica Gucci bags on today's market. If you're shopping for a Gucci bag, keep an eye out for these replicas so you don't get duped into paying for a fake. If you know what to watch out for, you can easily spot a fake Gucci bag.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Examine the bag's label. Replica Gucci bags often feature misspellings or typos on the label. The label's text should be clear, evenly spaced and free of errors.

  2. 2

    Study the stitching on the bag. As high-fashion items, Gucci bags feature sturdy, even stitching. If the bag in question has crooked, uneven or frayed stitching, it is undoubtedly a fake.

  3. 3

    Analyse the bag's hardware. It should be durable and feel slightly heavy. If the bag's zippers, clasps, buttons or chains feel flimsy or cheap, it is not authentic Gucci.

  4. 4

    Inspect the bag's material. Gucci uses only the finest leathers and fabrics. Oftentimes, fake Gucci bags are made from replica leather that feels stiff.

  5. 5

    Look closely at the Gucci logo. It should be two interlocking Gs. Replica Gucci bags often feature two interlocking Es instead.

  6. 6

    Confirm the bag comes with a high-quality duster. All Gucci bags come with protective dusters. If the bag doesn't come with one, it is not authentic.

  7. 7

    Check if the bag comes with an identification card. Gucci bags come with cards that list additional information, such as model numbers.

  8. 8

    Compare photos of the bag for sale with photos from the official Gucci site. If you notice any discrepancies between the two, you are likely dealing with a fake Gucci bag.

Tips and warnings

  • If a bag is priced dramatically below retail, it is likely a fake.
