How to you tell if a Gucci Camera bag is real

To tell if your Gucci Camera bag is real, examing the interior tag with “GUCCI” written on it.

Counterfeit bags often have text that differs from authentic Gucci bags.

1. Interior label

1.1. Front


  1. Stitches at the top of the inner “GUCCI” tag are longer and horizontally aligned.
  2. Copyright “R” symbol is thicker, and the circle is larger.
  3. “GUCCI” text is thinner and less bold.
  4. “made in italy” text is thinner and smaller.


  1. Stitches at the top of the inner “GUCCI” tag are shorter and parallel.
  2. Copyright “R” symbol is thinner, and the circle is smaller.
  3. “GUCCI” text is thicker, bolder, and more massive.
  4. “made in italy” text is thinner and larger in size.

1.2. Serial number

  • Authentic: The numbers on the rear side of the inner tag use the same font.
  • Fake: The numbers on the rear side of the inner tag use a different font.

2. Metal GG


  • No scratches on the “GG” buckle.
  • The metal “GG” logo is shiny, nuanced, and well-colored.


  • Three noticeable scratches on the “GG” buckle.
  • The metal “GG” logo lacks shine, nuance, and color, appearing dull.

3. Pattern


  • Stitches on the rear side are deep and securely hold the structure.
  • Higher-quality leather with a shinier appearance.


  • Stitches on the rear side are less deep and may not securely hold the structure.
  • Lower-quality leather with a duller appearance.

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.

4. Shape


  • Slimmer and more defined shape.
  • The metal strap attachment area is curvier and wider.
  • The metal has a subtler shine.


  • Bulkier and wider shape.
  • The metal strap attachment area is less curvy and narrower.
  • The metal has a more pronounced shine.

5. Handler

  • Authentic: Square finishing on the leather area.
  • Fake: Round finishing on the leather area.

6. Chainlink

  • Authentic: Chains typically well-maintained, not looking beaten up or scratched.
  • Fake: Fake Gucci bags often have chains that appear used and scratched, even if they’re not.

7. Chevrons

  • Authentic: Authentic Gucci bags typically have exactly 9 chevrons on the back.
  • Fake: Fake Gucci bags may have more or fewer than 9 chevrons on the back.

Shortlist: How to authenticate when short on time

  1. Check the inner “GUCCI” tag: Examine the stitching, copyright symbol “R,” and font of the numbers. Authentic Gucci bags have straight horizontal stitching, while fakes often have parallel stitching, thinner “R” symbols, and thicker printings on the tag.
  2. Inspect the front “GG” metal logo: Authentic logos are shiny with minimal scratches, whereas fake Gucci bag logos may appear less shiny and heavily scratched.
  3. Verify the pattern on the rear side: Legit Gucci bags have stitches that are deeply set into the fabric, while counterfeit bags often have shallower stitching.
  4. Examine the bag’s shape from the sides: Authentic Gucci GG bags have a specific shape, while fakes may appear wider and less accurate. Pay attention to the metal straps’ shine as well.
  5. Analyze the braces on the Gucci bag: Authentic bags feature square leather finishing on the braces, while fake bags tend to have rounder finishing.
  6. Check the quality of the chains: Authentic Gucci bags have high-quality chains that are not heavily worn or damaged.
  7. Count the chevrons on your: Legit bags always have nine chevrons on both the front and rear sides.

These key indicators can help you differentiate between genuine and fake Gucci GG bags.

In some cases, you may not have the time to go through all the detailed steps.
