Gucci is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world. Because of its famed status, so many people want to wear this brand, but not all of them can afford it. This has resulted in Gucci counterfeit products flooding the market with many unknowing buyers falling victim to them. To be safe, it is important that you know how to authenticate Gucci products. The problem is, there is no one single way to determine if a certain Gucci product is authentic or not.
In this article, we’ll be sharing some tips on how to authenticate one of Gucci’s products, GG Supreme. Following all these tips will help you not get scammed when shopping for GG Supreme a bag.
Quality of Material
The first thing you need to check is the quality of the material used. Authentic Gucci bags are made of the finest quality leather and materials. Imitations, on the other hand, are made of poor quality materials. So, if the bag you are about to buy is made of fake leather or unnaturally perfect machine-made synthetic material, then chances are that it is a counterfeit. The leather in Gucci products will have natural imperfections since it is genuine leather. Also, it doesn’t have a plastic or chemical smell, but only the scent of natural leather. On top of that, its the texture is smooth and not rubbery.
The Iconic Gucci Monogram
If you buying a monogram-style bag, inspecting the pattern of its double G logo for spacing and consistency can help you tell if it is an authentic Gucci. The right G should face backward and written upside down, while the left one should be forward-facing. Any inconsistency in the monogram’s pattern and size indicates that the bag isn’t genuine.
The Gucci Logo
The Gucci logo on the exterior may differ depending on the style of the bag. The standard logo features two interlocking gold-plated Gs and is usually located on the bag’s closure, flap, or front part. The Gucci logo or name should be printed or embossed on the leather.
It is nearly impossible for counterfeiters to replicate the hardware of authentic Supreme products. Gucci only uses high-quality solid metal or gold-plated materials to make locks, zippers, and other hardware for its bags. They also engrave the name Gucci with even spacing using the official Gucci font on the hardware and apply a high-quality finish on it.
Quality Craftsmanship & Stitching
Check for uneven stitching and broken threads as these are signs that the bag isn’t an authentic Gucci Supreme. The threads of genuine Gucci bags are the same color as the leather and the stitching perfectly even.
