Along with every step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci wallets, we are going to link reference fake vs real Gucci Snake wallet images so that every step will be clear and easy to understand.
How to tell if a Gucci wallet is real or fake
You can spot a fake Gucci wallet by checking if the stamp inside the wallet has very thick inscriptions, misaligned letters, and thick stitches. Those are always signs of a 100% fake Gucci wallet.
Let’s check it out!
The fake Gucci wallet has letters looking too thick when compared to the legit wallet’s letters.
The fake also has its letters improperly sized, as the letter “U” in the “GUCCI” text is too small.
The text is wavy and improperly aligned, while all of the characters on the authentic wallet are placed in a straight parallel line.
In fact, the fake Gucci wallet has its letters crooked, as they are not placed at the same level, and they are also angled too much (e.g. the letter “U” in the “GUCCI” text is crooked).
The fake wallet has stitches longer than those on the authentic wallet.
The fake stitching looks really thin, while the authentic wallet has been stitched a bit thicker.
In fact, the fake wallet has its stitching as thin as it gets harder to notice than the authentic wallet’s stitching.
The fake wallet’s text is placed too high above the stitching at the bottom of the wallet.
We drew a green line for the legit wallet’s placement and a red line for the fake wallet.
With the help of the two lines, you can define how the authentic wallet has its engravings placed closer to the bottom of the wallet, while the fake piece has its lines of text placed too high.
4. Snake print
The fake wallet has its white lines saturated too much — they’re a perfect white instead of a faded shade.
The fake item has the head of the snake too small.
On the other hand, the authentic wallet has more of a washed-out and vintage look with its red and white shades, making it look less intense than the fake wallet’s snake.
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 pattern
The fake wallet has its “GG” letters improperly font weighted.
Some of the letters are too thick, and the other ones are too thin on the fake.
The real wallet has all of its “GG” letters at the same thickness.
As for the sixth method on how to spot fake Gucci wallets, we are going to have a look at the placement of the inscription.
Bear in mind that the authentic Gucci GG wallets must have their inscription positioned on the right interior side of the wallet.
If a wallet has the inscription on the left side, it is 100% a replica.
Even though we couldn’t find a legible picture with a fake wallet having the inscription positioned on the wrong side of the wallet, we still wanted to mention this factor.
7. Dust bag
The fake dust bag uses a different font from the legit dust bag.
The fake one has letters too thick and boxy.
On the fake, there are too many extra threads, while on the authentic wallet’s dust bag, there is no extra thread since all of the stitches are in place.
In regards to the authentic dust bag, you can see how all of the letters are bigger and thinner, and how they have less space when compared to the fake items dust bag.
Shortlist: How to authenticate a Gucci wallet
Check the font weight and the positioning of the characters on the interior side of your wallet. Mostly, the fake wallets have their letters in the wrong font weight and they are also misplaced.
Look at the stitching found on the interior side of your wallet because most of the fake wallets have their stitching looking too long and thin.
Verify the placement of the text on the interior side of your wallet. Usually, the fake wallets have their text placed too high above the bottom stitching.

Analyze the Supreme pattern on your Gucci GG wallet. Mostly, fake wallets have their “GG” letters at different thicknesses.
Check if the inscription on the interior side is placed correctly. The authentic Gucci GG Supreme wallets must have their inscription on the interior side placed on the right flap.
Look at the dust bag of your wallet because most of the fake Gucci wallets have their dust bag using the wrong font for the “GUCCI” text and also having extra hanging threads.
