Join us, and let’s look at the 7 ways to spot fake
Chanel 19 bags.
By the end of the guide, you’ll know what makes an authentic Chanel bag and what the best fake looks like.
Let’s waste no time and see how to spot fake
Chanel bags! How to tell if your Chanel 19 is fake
You can tell if a Chanel 19 is fake by checking the interior “CHANEL ®” label. Fake bags often have their text thicker and misplaced compared to the authentic.
We’ll now go through all the 7 authentication steps.
1. Interior label
Authentic: Letters are neat and well-spaced. The “®” symbol is small with a centered “R”. Fake: Letters are thicker and poorly spaced. The “®” is bigger and off-center. 2. Zipper
Authentic: Letters on the zipper are finely printed and well-spaced. Fake: Letters are thicker and more deeply printed, with inconsistent spacing.
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. CC Logo
Authentic: The Chanel logo has a subtle, refined shine. Fake: The logo is overly shiny.
Flaw that’s commonly seen in fake bags from big brands like
Louis Vuitton and Gucci. 4. Screws
Authentic: The screws are smaller and deeper, adhering to Chanel’s meticulous craftsmanship. Fake: The screws are noticeably bigger and wider, and they lack the depth found on the authentic bag’s screws. 5. Stitching
Authentic: The stitching is less deep and the bag uses high-quality leather, which reflects light naturally and looks more luxurious. Fake: The stitching is deeper and the material is of poorer quality, lacking the authentic leather and natural sheen of the real Chanel 19 bag. 6. Buckle
Authentic: The screws on the authentic Chanel bags have deeper gaps in the middle. Fake: The fake Chanel 19 bags typically feature screws with shallower gaps in the middle. 7. Chainlinks
Authentic: The metal on the authentic Chanel bags’ braces has a more subdued shine. Fake: The fake Chanel 19 bags usually have metal that appears noticeably shinier.
Shortlist: Authenticate your Chanel 19 bag
Examine the Interior Label: Counterfeit Chanel 19 bags often have overly thick text. Observe the Zippers: On replicas, the text on zippers tends to be too thick with excessive spacing between letters. Assess the Front Chanel Logo: Counterfeit bags often display an excessively shiny Chanel logo. Inspect the Rear Metal Logo: Fake bags typically have larger screws on the metal logo compared to genuine ones. Evaluate the Stitching: Counterfeit Chanel 19 bags usually feature deep-set stitches and lower quality leather that doesn’t reflect light as authentically crafted bags do. Examine the Screws: Most fake Chanel 19 bags have screws without a sufficiently deep central gap, unlike genuine screws. Check the bag’s chainlinks: The metal material on the links of counterfeit bags tends to be shinier than on genuine Chanel bags.
