Wondering how to authenticate Dior Book Tote bags? Afraid of scammers and fake bags?
No worries, this guide will take all of the questions off your shoulders, as we have compiled all of the steps that you should know about when it comes to authenticating Dior bags.
Along with every step of our guide on how to spot fake Dior Book Tote bags, we are going to link references to real vs fake Dior Book Tote images.
The images with the fake vs real Dior Book Totes will visually tell you the flaws on the fake bag, as well as the counterparts seen on the real ones.
The best way to spot fake Dior Book Tote bags is to look at the label on the interior side. The genuine Book Tote bags must have their text at the same font weight every time, and every replica bag has its text on the label being either too thick or too thin, therefore we recommend that you always check the interior side’s label if you want to easily spot fake Dior bags.
As mentioned at the top of the guide, we consider the label on the interior side of the real vs fake Dior Book Tote bags as the most reliable way to authenticate them.
In the image with the real vs replica Dior Book Tote bags above, we have pointed out how the fake label has a flaw in each word.
Starting with the “Christian Dior” text, you can see how the fake label’s text is of the wrong thickness, as it is too thick, while the genuine bag’s inscription is thinner.
Then, if you look at the “PARIS” text, you’ll notice how it is too thin and too small on the fake bag, as well as with too much space in-between the letters.
On the other hand, the authentic Dior Book Tote bag’s “PARIS” text is thicker, a little bit bigger, and with more kerning between the letters, unlike the fake bag’s label, which is exactly the opposite.
Lastly, the “MADE IN ITALY” inscription on the fake bag is too thick and stamped too deep into the fabric, while the real one is thinner and with the text fits less deep into the label.
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.
For the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Christian Dior Book Tote bags, we are going to look at the detail which makes these bags shine the most, and that is the brand’s name’s inscription.
The “CHRISTIAN DIOR PARIS” text can be seen on the front and on the back of the bag, and either inscription that you’re looking at, it should be looking like the authentic one in the real vs fake Dior Book Tote image below in order for it to be real.
In the picture with the fake vs real Dior Book Tote bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “CHRISTIAN DIOR” text looks too thick, while the real bag’s text is thinner.
You can notice this flaw the best if you look at the letter “S” in the “CHRISTIAN” text – on the fake bag, this text looks too thick, while the real bag’s text is thinner.
Now as for the “PARIS” text, you can notice how the fake bag’s letters are randomly positioned, shaped and font-weighted, as some of the letters are placed too low, as well as how some other letters are thicker than the others.
On the other hand, the genuine bag’s “PARIS” text looks way better defined than the fake one, because each authentic character has the same font weight and level/aligning.
For the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Dior Book Tote bags, we have to move to the upper side of the bag and check out the handler.
In the picture with the fake vs real Dior Book Tote bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s handler is too short when it was supposed to be taller.
Speaking of which, the authentic Dior Book Tote bag’s handler is longer and just taller than the fake bag’s handler.
On top of that, the fake bag’s handler also looks too thick, while the real one seems to be thinner and narrower.
Moving forward to the fourth way how to authenticate Dior Book Tote bags, we’ve taken for reference the most popular colourway of the Book Tote, and that is the Dior Oblique all-over print.
For the beginning, let’s quickly check the reference authentic vs fake Dior Book Tote comparison image below, and after that, we’ll explain the flaw in the fake Oblique print.
In the image with the real vs fake Dior Book Tote bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “Dior” all-over text looks too thin, and how the letters are sharper and not defined as better as the real ones.
The genuine Dior Book Tote bag’s “Dior” all-over text looks thicker and way better defined when compared to the fake bag’s text.
As for the fifth method on how to authenticate Dior Book Tote bags, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Dior Book Totes from their profile sides.
The picture with the fake vs real Dior Book Tote bags above shows you how the fake bag’s shape is bulkier due to the fabric being way thicker than what it should be.
If you look at the very edges of the fake bag’s sides, you can see how the material looks too thick, and how the real bag’s same material is thinner and less bulky than the fake one.
