Use this guide to authenticate your Gucci 1955 Horsebit bag.

Stay clear of fakes and know what makes an original bag.

Let’s see the 8 steps to verify this Gucci bag.

How to tell if a Gucci Horsebit bag is fake

You can spot a fake Gucci Horsebit bag by inspecting the “® GUCCI made in italy” label inside the bag.

Fake items often exhibit inconsistencies in stitching and text thickness.

1. Interior label

  • Authentic:
    1. Stitching at the top of the label is thicker and more defined.
    2. Registered trademark “®” symbol is thicker and fits less deep into the leather.
    3. “GUCCI” and “made in Italy” text lines are thinner.
  • Fake:
    1. Stitching at the top of the label is too thin.
    2. Registered trademark “®” symbol is too thin and fits too deep into the leather.
    3. “GUCCI” and “made in Italy” text lines are too thick and fit too deep into the leather.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Gucci authenticators:

2. Logo print

On the other side of the stitched label, you’ll find the “GUCCI” logo.

  • Authentic:
    • “GUCCI” text is thicker.
    • The letter ‘I’ is wider.
  • Fake:
    • “GUCCI” text is too thin.
    • The letter ‘I’ is narrower.

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. Bottom

  • Authentic:
    • Stitching is thinner.
    • Longer threads.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is too thick.
    • Shorter threads.

4. Handler

  • Authentic:
    • Stitching is bigger, thicker, and wider.
    • Buttons are less shiny.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is too small, too thick, and too boxy.
    • Buttons are too shiny.

5. Pattern

Let’s look at the Gucci GG Supreme pattern.

You’ll also find this on the Gucci wallet, in our separate guide.

  • Authentic: “GG” characters are thicker.
  • Fake: GG” characters are too thin.

6. Stitching

  • Authentic:
    • Thinner stitching.
    • Angled stitching on interior side.
  • Fake:
    • Thicker stitching.
    • Straight stitching on interior side.

7. Buckle

  • Authentic: Less shiny buckle.
  • Fake: Overly shiny buckle.

8. Shape

  • Authentic: Properly defined and organized fabric.
  • Fake: Fabric randomly attached.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Gucci Horsebit bag

In some situations, you might not have the time to go through all the detailed steps mentioned above when you need to verify the authenticity of your Gucci Horsebit bag.

This format should make it easier to read and understand:

  1. Check the label on the interior side of your Gucci Horsebit bag. Most of the fake bags have their text and stitching in the wrong thickness.
  2. Verify the interior side’s “GUCCI” text. The replica Gucci Horsebit bags usually have their text too thick.
  3. Inspect the stitching at the bottom side of your Gucci bag, as most of the replica items have their stitching at the wrong thickness and improperly shaped.
  4. Analyze the strap of your Gucci Horsebit bag, because most of the fake Gucci bags have their strap’s stitching badly defined, as well as their buttons too shiny.
  5. Examine the GG Supreme pattern found all around your bag. The replica bags tend to have their “GG” characters too thin.
  6. Check the stitching on the interior side of your bag, because most of the fake bags have their stitching improperly detailed.
  7. Look at the shininess of the buckle on your Gucci bag. The counterfeit Gucci Horsebit bags usually have their buckle too shiny.
  8. Brief the details and shape of the bag on the interior side of your bag, because the fake bags usually have their fabric randomly attached.
