Are you trying to learn how to authenticate Gucci Horsebit bags? If so, then you are in the right place to do so.

Just by reading our fake vs real Gucci Horsebit bag guide, you are going to easily learn how to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags.

Along with every step of our guide, we are going to link reference genuine vs fake Gucci Horsebit bag images so that every step will be understandable.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags is to look at the label inside the bag, as most of the fake items have their stitching and text at the wrong thickness. All of the authentic Gucci Horsebit bags have the same thickness for all of their details, without varying like the fake bags’ details.

Now that you know what this is about, let’s jump right into the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bag authentication guide.

How to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags

Step 1: Real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bag interior label

Just as we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the interior label as the most reliable sing of authenticity when speaking of the authentic vs replica Gucci Horsebit bags.

Therefore, we recommend that you never skip the label inside the Gucci Horsebit bag, as this is the top-authenticity factor.

In the image with the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Gucci Horsebit bag has its stitching and text at the wrong thickness.

First things first, looking at the stitching at the top of the label, you can see how the fake Gucci bag has its stitching looking too thin.

Moving our eyes to the authentic bag, you can notice how its stitching is thicker and more defined than the one found on the replica Gucci bag.

Then, looking at the registered trademark “®” symbol, it is visible how the fake bag has its symbol too thin, yet fit too deep into the leather.

On the other hand, the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag has its “®” symbol thicker, but also fit less deep into the leather.

Looking at the “GUCCI” and at the “made in Italy” lines of text, you can see how these two are too thick and how they are also fit too deep into the leather.

Back to the genuine Gucci Horsebit bag, you can see how their “GUCCI” and “made in Italy” inscriptions are at the same thickness.

Speaking of which, the authentic bag obviously has its two lines of text looking thinner than the ones on the fake bag.

Step 2: Fake vs real Gucci Horsebit bag interior “GUCCI” inscription

As for the second step of the guide on how to authenticate Gucci Horsebit bags, we are going to look at the interior side’s “GUCCI” text.

The text which we are talking about is actually this shiny inscription that is attached directly to the leather of the bag’s interior side, without having any tab.

In the image with the authentic vs replica Gucci Horsebit bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Gucci bag has its “GUCCI” text looking too thin.

Back to the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag, you can notice how its “GUCCI” text looks thicker than the one on the fake bag.

If this is not so clear, make sure to look at the letter ‘I”, as this letter is narrower on the fake bag, and looking at the authentic one, you can see how it is wider.

Step 3: Verify the stitching at the bottom of your Gucci Horsebit bag

As for the third method on how to authenticate Gucci Horsebit bags, we are going to look at the genuine vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags for their stitching at the bottom side.

In most cases, the counterfeit Gucci Horsebit bags will have their stitching at the wrong thickness and length in the Botton side.

replica vs authentic gucci horsebit bag

In the image with the authentic vs replica Gucci Horsebit bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Gucci Horsebit bag has its stitching, first of all, too thick.

If we look at the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag, we can easily notice how its stitching is thinner than the one found on the replica item.

Then, the next flaw which we’ve seen on the fake bag within the same area, the bottom, is that its stitching is too short.

That is caused also by the thickness: since all of the letters are too thick on the fake bag, they are also small and bulky, therefore being too short.

Looking at the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag, you can notice how its threads are longer than the ones found on the counterfeit Gucci bag.

Step 4: Analyze the strap of your Gucci Horsebit bag

Proceeding to the fourth method on how to authenticate Gucci Horsebit bags, we are now going to look at the genuine vs replica Gucci Horsebit bags for their strap.

We will look at the bags’ stitching o the straps, as well as at the buttons attached to this tab.

fake vs real gucci horsebit bag

In the image where we have the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags above, we have pointed out how, first of all, the fake bag has its stitching at the wrong thickness.

What we mean is that the fake bag has its stitching all around the strap looking too small, too thick and too boxy.

The authentic Gucci Horsebit bag has its stitching looking bigger, thicker and wider than the one on the replica item.

Then, if we look at the buttons, we can notice how the replica Gucci Horsebit bag has its buttons looking too shiny, while the authentic item has its buttons less shiny.

Keep in mind that most of the counterfeit Gucci bags have their buttons and the other hardware details shinier than the ones on the authentic items.

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: Inspect the GG Supreme pattern all around the bag

As for the fifth method on how to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags, we are going to look at the classic GG Supreme pattern found all around the two bags.

In most cases, the counterfeit Gucci GG Supreme items have their characters in the classic pattern looking too thin.

real vs fake gucci horsebit bag

In the image with the fake vs real Gucci Horsebit bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag has its “GG” characters looking too thin on all over the bag.

Moving our eyes back to the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag, we can notice how its “GG” letters printed all over the bag are thicker than the ones on the fake item.

Step 6: Check the stitching on the interior side of the bag

Moving back inside the authentic vs replica Gucci Horsebit bags, we are now going to look at the stitching on the interior side of the two bags.

First things first, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bag image linked right below.

The main flaw with the fake Gucci Horsebit bag’s stitching on the interior side is that it is at the wrong thickness and shape.

Starting with the thickness, you can see how the fake bag has its stitching yet again too thick, while the authentic bag has its stitching thinner.

At the same time, the fake bag also has its stitching straightly positioned, while the authentic bag has its stitching angled.

Step 7: Examine the shininess of the buckle on your Gucci Horsebit bag

Going to the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags, we are going to look at the shininess of the buckle on the front side of the bag.

As you may know already, we will first have a quick look at the image with the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags from below.

In the image with the authentic vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags, we have pointed out how the fake Gucci bag has its buckle shining way more Ethan the one on the authentic bag.

Speaking of which, if we look at the authentic bag, you and notice how its buckle is less shiny than the one on the fake bag.

At the same time, you can see how both the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags are placed into the light, and with this being said, we can conclude that the fake bag is indeed too shiny on its buckle.

Step 8: Fake vs real Gucci Horsebit bag interior details and shape

As for the eighth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci Horsebit bags, we are going to look at the details on the interior side.

In the image with the real vs fake Gucci Horsebit bags, we have pointed out how the fake bag has its fabric randomly attached to the bag.

On the other hand, the authentic Gucci Horsebit bag has all of its details properly defined, as every piece of fabric is clearly in its place.
