Gucci materials and workmanship
Authentic Gucci handbags are made from High quality materials expertly made. If you want a bag with the typical Gucci "GG" Logo such as the Jackie O Hobo, then make sure that the "GG" logo on the canvas is always symmetrical and clearly printed. On leather bags, the logo is always clearly stamped, but never printed. These characteristics often do not apply to fakes.
The seams on the bags are always perfectly and evenly made. The thread is sewn at a slight angle, and therefore does not 100% run in a line.
Metal applications (hardware)
All Metal parts such as buckles, chains or zippers bear the Gucci lettering and should feel solid and heavy.
The Zipper bears the words "Gucci" embossed on the back. Due to the perfect workmanship of genuine bags, the zipper of an original Gucci bag should always open easily and without hooking. If this is not the case, it is very likely a fake.
Gucci leather strap with lettering embossing (Heat Stamp)
All bags are made with the Gucci lettering stamped (a hot stamping). This writing is always inside the bag. New bags have a flap made of leather on which the stamping is stamped. If the bag has an inside pocket, then the leather flap is sewn on there. In older bags, the leather with the stamping is stamped or sewn into the lining.
Each bag bears the following embossing:
made in Italy
For the logo, check that the letters are absolutely symmetrical, that is, all letters have exactly the same height. For the "U", the left part of the letter is thicker than the right part of the letter. Also, all the letters are centered under the ®.
New Gucci models also have a sewn-in fabric label that bears a QR code-like pattern.
Gucci serial number / model number
All new bags have on the back of the leather flap (see above) a Model number, which is often also called Serial number is described. The code consists of 10-13 numbers distributed on two lines.
The code in the upper line describes the respective bag model, e.g. 408825 for the Hobo Soho.
In counterfeits, the production code is either not present, or in some cases only thinly printed or thinly stamped.
TIP: Visit the Gucci online store. There, find your bag and compare the model number given on the website with the code in your bag. If it is not identical, it is most likely a fake.
Notes for older Gucci bags
Many older Gucci bags were already delivered with a model number at the end of the 90s and beginning of the 2000s. They may not have the code on an extra flap, but stamped inside the bag (e.g. on the canvas material). In addition, the numerical code of the upper row of older bags may be interrupted by a hyphen or a dot.
