This is your one-stop tutorial on how to spot fake Gucci Marmont bags.

Our tips work for any bag, regardless of: color, size, year of release.

How to spot a fake Gucci Marmont bag

To tell a fake Gucci Marmont bag, make sure to check the label stitched on the interior side, as fake bags often have their stitching and inscriptions at the wrong thickness.

1. Interior label

  • The fake Gucci GG bag’s stitches seem to be a bit too thick on the left side of the label, and also too thin on the right side.
  • The replica bag’s registered trademark “®” symbol looks too thin.
  • The “G U C C I” text on the fake bag is too thin as well.
  • The fake Marmont bag’s “made in italy” inscription is too thin, while the authentic bag’s text is thicker and more defined.
  • That aside, the fake “made in italy” text also has its letters crooked, and the real bag’s text is perfectly defined.
  • The word “made” is not as opaque and visible as the real bag’s.

2. Keychain

  • The fake bag’s registered trademark “®” symbol looks too thin, and how the authentic bag’s symbol is thicker.
  • The fake keychain’s “G U C C I” text is yet again thinner than the real bag’s thicker text.
  • The “G U C C I” text on the fake bag actually uses a different font from the real bag’s text.
    • The letters are shaped differently.
    • This issue is most visible on both the letters “C”.
  • If you look at the letters on the fake “made in italy” text, you can see how they’re too thin
  • The fake bag’s “made in italy” text looks too thin, and the retail bag’s text is thicker.
  • At the same time, the fake bag’s letters in the “made in italy” text have too much space in-between.

3. Strap

  • The fake Gucci bag has stitches looking thicker than the ones seen on the retail bag.
  • In fact, the fake bag’s stitches are more noticeable than the authentic bag’s stitches.
  • The fake threads are way bulkier than the legit bag’s threads, which are thinner, smaller, and less noticeable.

4. Flap interior

  • The fake bag has its stitches all around the flap longer and thinner than the ones on the authentic bag.

On the other hand, the genuine Gucci GG Marmont bag’s stitching is shorter and thicker.

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.

5. GG metal logo

  • The fake bag’s “GG” metal logo is too shiny, as the golden shade is too saturated.

On the other hand, the authentic bag’s GG metal buckle is less shiny, as it reflects less light and it is less shiny when put side-by-side with the fake bag’s logo.

6. Heart stitching

  • The fake bag’s stitching which forms the heart looks a bit too thick.
  • Most noticeable if you look in the top-right corner of the heart.

On the other hand, the authentic bag’s stitching looks thinner than the one seen on the fake bag.

7. Shape

  • The fake bag’s shape is too wide and too bulky.

Looking at the genuine bag, you can notice how its shape is slimmer and just narrower.

8. Hardware

  • The fake bag’s chain is not as shiny as the real one.
  • The color of the fake bag looks like it’s faded and “washed” in comparison to the real one.

The authentic Gucci GG Marmont bag’s hardware chain has a more saturated colour and reflects more light than the fake bag’s

9. Buckle

  • The fake bag’s hardware square looks shinier than the authentic bag’s square.

Speaking of which, the authentic Gucci GG Marmont bag’s square is put into light (as well as the fake one), and it reflects less light than the fake one.

Shortlist: How to tell fake Gucci Marmont bags

  1. Check the label inside your bag. Mostly, the fake Gucci bags have their text and stitching at the wrong thickness.
  2. Examine the text engraved into the keychain. The replica keychains usually have their text at the wrong font weight here as well.
  3. Look at the stitching on the strap, since the fake bags usually have their stitching too thick and too bulky.
  4. Inspect the stitching on the interior side of the flap of your Gucci bag, since the fake bags tend to have their threads too short and too thin.
  5. Brief the shininess of the GG buckle of your Gucci bag, because the fake bags mostly have their letters too shiny.
  6. Look at the stitching on the back of your bag, and make sure that your bag doesn’t have its stitches too thick, or too thin.
  7. Check the shape of your bag from the profile side, because the fake Gucci GG Marmont bags tend to have shape wider and fatter than the real bags and their shape.
  8. Inspect the shininess of the hardware chain of your bag, and make sure your bag’s chain has the correct colour and shininess.
  9. Authenticate the shininess of the lock of the buckle. In most cases, the fake bags have that little hardware square too shiny.
