This guide will talk about the Gucci Soho Disco bag.

We’ll show you how to authenticate one in just 5 simple steps.

Let’s waste no time and get into this Gucci bag.

How to tell if a Gucci Soho bag is real

You can tell if a Gucci Soho bag is real by checking if the stitches on the inteiror label are straight instead of angled.

In-line threads are always a sign of an authentic Gucci Soho.

1. Interior label

Authentic Bag:

  1. The stitching at the top of the label is slightly angled, not placed on a straight line.
  2. The stitching appears thicker and has more weight.
  3. The text on the authentic bag is thicker and placed deeper into the bag.
  4. All letters, including “G,” are placed at the same level, with no floating letters.

Fake Bag:

  1. The stitching is placed on a straight line, lacking the correct angle.
  2. The stitching looks thinner and less substantial.
  3. The text on the fake bag is thinner and not as deeply printed into the bag.
  4. The letter “G” on the fake bag is smaller than the other letters and appears to be floating.

2. GG Logo

Authentic Bag:

  1. The rear classic GG logo is properly stitched into the bag.
  2. The logo appears thicker and chunkier.
  3. The stitching around the GG letters is thicker.

Fake Bag:

  1. The rear classic GG logo looks too thin and improperly stitched.
  2. The logo appears thinner than on the authentic bag.
  3. The stitching around the GG letters is too thin.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Strap

  • Authentic Bag: The strap is shorter.
  • Fake Bag: The strap looks too long.

4. Hardware

  • Authentic Bag: The strap’s hardware on the authentic bag is smaller and less shiny.
  • Fake bag: The side hardware circle is oversized and shiny.

5. Dust bag

  • Authentic Bag: Text maintains the correct font style and proportions.
  • Fake Bag: Text appears stretched out and thin, with a different font.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Gucci Soho Disco bag

Consider these top 5 indicators that can help you determine if you have an authentic or fake bag:

  1. Interior Label: Examine the label inside your Gucci Soho bag. Fake Gucci Soho Disco bags often have stitching that looks too thin and straight, instead of being thick and angled. Additionally, the text on fake bags may appear too thin.
  2. Gucci GG Rear Logo: Check the Gucci GG rear logo. Fake bags may have stitching that makes the GG logo look too thin.
  3. Strap Length: Look at the strap of your Gucci Soho Disco bag. Counterfeit Gucci GG bags may have straps that appear too short.
  4. Metal Strap: Inspect the metal strap of your Gucci Soho bag. Fake bags may have metal straps that look too wide and overly shiny.
  5. Dust Bag: Examine the dust bag that came with your Gucci bag. Counterfeit Gucci bags often have text on the dust bag that uses a different font compared to authentic ones.
