Want to learn how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags? If so, then you are in the right place.

This guide with the compared fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags will show you everywhere you have to look at in order to determine whether a bag is genuine or not.

Nowadays, it may be harder to spot fake bags, but with the help of the Chanel Coco Handle fake vs real images that we’ve attached to each step, the authentication job will be way easier than ever before.

Therefore, we recommend that you compare your bag to the fake vs real Coco Handle bags that locate at every step. Additionally, below each image you’ll see us explaining what’s wrong with the fake bags, as well as how are the real ones detailed.

All you have to do is just have a look at a few labels, and just by that, you can easily tell the authenticity of a Chanel Coco handle bag, as the fake bags never have their text on the interior labels properly detailed (especially talking about the thickness, while the real Chanel bags never have any issues, thanks to the attention paid to every little detail.

How to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags

Step 1: Fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bag interior label

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the label on the interior side of the Coco Handle bag as the very best authenticity factor, and that’s why we also suggest never skipping over the interior label, as this little tab can easily tell you the verdict on your bag.

Now let’s do as we’ve promised at the top of the guide, and let’s first have a look at the image with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags, and right after that, we’ll explain everything in the image.

The picture with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags above highlights how the fake product has flaws in terms of font-weight and stitching, and in order to understand the flaws easier, we’ve counted each flaw.

1 – The fake bag has its stitching all around the round edges rectangle label at the wrong thickness. In fact, the fake bag’s threads are too thick, and they are also too small, therefore having a look that’s too boxy.

On the other hand, the genuine Chanel Coco Handle bag’s stitching all around the interior label has a thinner, longer and more aired look for the threads surrounding this label.

2 – Looking at the “CHANEL” text, we’ve spotted the fake bag’s text being too thick, too narrow and how it has its letters placed too close to each other.

At the same time, the genuine Chanel Coco Handle bag’s “CHANEL” text looks thinner, wider and with more kerning in-between the characters.

In other words, the fake bag’s “CHANEL” text is also too boxy, while the real one is wider and more aired.

3 – Below the Chanel label, we have the “MADE IN” inscription, and for the record, it doesn’t matter whether your bag was manufactured in Italy, France or in any other country, the inscription should have the same look as the real one highlighted above.

So, as for the fake bag, you can see how the “MADE IN ITALY” text looks too thin and too tiny, while the real bag’s text is thicker and bigger.

4 – The registered trademark “®” symbol on the fake Chanel Coco Handle bag looks too thick as well, and at the same time, the letter “R” is off-centre inside the circle.

On the other hand, the real Chanel bag’s symbol has a thinner overall look, and the letter “R” is placed perfectly inside the middle of the circle.

For your reference, in the image above we have attached another type of an authentic Chanel Coco Handle interior label, and as you can see, this label was stamped into the suede material, unlike the previously inspected label which was stitched into the bag.

Step 2: Look at the text engraved on the interior side of the buckle

Going to the second way on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we are going to have a look at the “CHANEL” text written on the interior side of the buckle.

As we’ve said, since this text is on the inside of the buckle, you can easily access it by flipping the flap of the bag.

The picture with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags above shows you how the fake bag’s text is badly font-weighted, and on top of that, the screws are also improperly positioned.

Looking at the “CHANEL” and at the “PARIS” inscriptions, you can see how the fake Chanel Coco Handle has its text fit too deep into the metal, as the letters are thicker than what they are on the real bag.

Speaking of which, the authentic Chanel Coco Handle bag has its text looking thinner, as it was fit less deep inside the metal.

Now as for the screws, we’ve placed the hand-emoji pointer next to the left side’s screw, as the fake bag’s screw is placed too close to the empty area in the middle of the buckle.

On the other hand, the genuine bag’s screws are placed further away from the middle of the buckle, unlike the fake bag’s screws.

Step 3: Verify the text on the zipper of your Chanel Coco Handle bag

Moving to the third method on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we are going to quickly look at the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags for their zipper’s text.

As on pretty much every other genuine Chanel bag, the Coco Handle model presents the “CHANEL” text engraved in the metal as well.

In the image with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “CHANEL” text looking too thick, an as you may guess, this is due to the text being engraved way too deep inside the metal.

For the zipper as well, the authentic Coco Handle bag’s “CHANEL” text is thinner since it was fit less deep inside the fabric when put side-by-side with the fake bag’s zipper.

Step 4: Authenticate the Chanel double C logo engraved on the keychain

As for the fourth method of the guide on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we now have to look at the text engraved into the keychain.

Actually, this time we don’t really have to deal with any text, as the keychains simply have the famous Chanel double C logo engraved into the metal.

The picture with these authentic vs replica Chanel Coco Handle bags above show you how the fake bag’s “CC” logo is at the wrong thickness, and how it is improperly shaped as well.

First of all, the fake bag ‘s “CC” logo looks too thick, and second of all, it is wide and too big when compared to the real one.

And, mentioning the real bag, you can see how it’s “CC” logo looks thinner and boxier, therefore having a smaller look than the fake bag’s “CC” inscription.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity, but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Analyze the text written on the circle metals all around the base of the handler on your bag

The fifth step of the guide n how to spot fake Chanel bags will bring us to the bast of the handlers, where we’ll have a quick look at yet another “CHANEL” text.

As always, let’s have a look at the image with the real vs replica Chanel Coco Handle bags below.

The fake bag’s “CHANEL” text is too thin, and that aside, its letters have too much space in-between, and that make sense since the letters are too narrow.

On the other hand, the legit Chanel Coco Handle bag’s “CHANEL” text looks thicker and it has its letters placed closer to each other than the fake ones.

Step 6: Have a quick look at the shape of the handler on your Chanel bag

Moving to the sixth method of the guide on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Coco Handle bags for their handler’s shape.

In most cases, the fake bags have their handler looking too thick and too small, while the real ones are always detailed to the same spec.

The image with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags above highlights two bags that are in the same size, even though the fake handler wouldn’t say so.

That’s because the fake handle looks too thick and too small, as it is too short from the bag and up to the top, while the real bag is exactly the opposide.

The genuine Coco Handle bag’s handler looks thinner and taller than the one seen on the fake bag.

Step 7: Fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle exterior logo shininess

For the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we are going to have a look at the shininess of the double C logo on the exterior side for the famous double C Chanel logo.

The image with the fake vs authentic Chanel Coco Handle bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s logo is too little shiny when compared to the real one.

Precisely, the fake bag’s CC logo doesn’t shine at all, while the real one is way shinier, as it reflects more light than the fake one.

Step 8: Check the shape of your Chanel Coco Handle bag from the profile side

As for the eighth and almost the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, we are now going to have a look at the bags from their profile sides, as what we want to inspect now is the shape of these bags.

The picture with the fake vs real Chanel Coco Handle bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Chanel bag’s shape depth in the middle is too little.

Looking at the real bag, you can see how its fabric goes somewhat deeper and more to the interior side of the bag, while the fake bag has its leather less like the real bag’s deeper fabric.

Step 9: Analyze the pocket on the rear side of your Chanel Coco Handle bag

The ninth method will also be the last one in this guide on how to spot fake Chanel Coco Handle bags, and as for it, we are going to flip the bags to their rear side, and we’ll have a look at their pockets.

The picture with the genuine vs fake Chanel Coco Handle items above shows you how the fake bag’s pocket has its corners way too curvy, as they arch more than what they should.

On the other hand, the real bag’s corners of the pocket are less curvy, since they arch less than the fake ones seen on the fake bag.
