Wondering how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags? You don’t want to get scammed with a fake Off-White bag?

If so, then you are in the best place to learn how to spot any fake Off-White Binder Clip bag, as we have compiled this ultimate fake vs real OW bag comparison guide.

Along with every step of our guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to link reference real vs fake Off-White bag comparison images.

These images with the fake vs real Off-White bags will help you easily see what the authentic item’s details should look like, as well as how the fake bags commonly look like, as we only compare to the best replicas.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags is to look at the “MAIN LABEL” inscription on the interior side of the bag, as the replica items never have their text at the correct thickness and at the right kerning amount between the characters, while all of the authentic bags have to be flawless.

How to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags

Step 1: Real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bag interior text

For the first step of the guide on how to spot replica Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to look at the interior side’s “MAIN LABEL” inscription.

Just as how we’ve previously mentioned, we consider this as the best way on how to spot fake Off-White bags as the fake ones are never on point for this detail.

Before we begin to explain the flaws on the fake Off-White Binder Clip bag’s interior text, let’s have a look at the image with the real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bags below.

off-white bag real vs fake

In the image with the fake vs real Off-White Binder Clip bags above, we have pointed out how the fake OW bag has every of its inscription at the wrong thickness.

Starting with the “MAIN LABEL” text at the top of the bag, you can see how the fake Off-White bag has its text looking too big and with multiple font-weights.

In fact, the font-weight’s flaw can be visible by looking at how thick the word “MAIN” is on the fake bag, as well as how the word “LABEL” is too thin, also on the fake Off-White bag.

Looking at the genuine Off-White Binder Clip bag’s “MAIN LABEL” text, you can see how it has the same font-weight for every of its character.

Moving a little bit lower, we have the “2013” numbers which look very thick, as they have a higher font-weight when compared to the authentic bag’s text, which is thinner.

In the right side of the label, we have a block of text with three lines of text, and all of the characters on the fake Off-White bag are too big and too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag has its three lines of text looking smaller and thicker than the fake bag’s text.

As you can see, in the image above we have highlighted only another authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag example of the interior label, as this is a different one that we’ve previously inspected.

Step 2: Check the small line of text inside your OW bag

Proceeding to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White bags, we have to look at the little line of text on the interior side of the fake vs real OW Binder Clip bags.

The text which we are going to look at states “Off-White TM” and “MADE IN ITALY”, and inscription is placed above the label that we’ve previously inspected at the first step.

Looking at the fake vs real Off-White Binder Clip bag image above, we have pointed out how the fake OW bag has its text badly font-weight, as this is the usual flaw for the prints on the interior side of the OW bags.

So, going more into detail, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “Off-White TM” text is really thin when compared to the real deal.

Speaking of which, the authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag has its “Off-White TM” text looking thicker and more defined than the fake bag’s text.

Then, looking at the “MADE IN ITALY” text on the fake bag, you can see how the print looks too big, too wide, and too thick. The thickness flaw can be especially seen on the letter “L” in the word “ITALY”.

Back to the authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag, you can see how its “MADE IN ITALY” text looks smaller, narrower and thinner than the fake bag’s text.

Step 3: Verify the logo stripes on your Off-White Clip bag

Going to the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to look at the Off-White logo stripes that are all over the real vs fake Off-White bags.

We are going to start looking at the real vs fake Off-White bags in the classic and the most popular pattern with the stripes, and then, we will also look at the glossy colourways and at the other patterns.

So, just as always, let’s have a look at the reference image with the real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bags from below.

fake vs real off-white bag

In the image with the real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag has the wrong amount of stirpes.

All of the genuine Off-White Binder Clip bags in the classic pattern (like the genuine one above) must have the amount of seven stripes.

Looking at the fake Off-White Binder Clip bag, you can see how there are more than seven stripes, as there is one extra stripe, making it be eight stripes on the fake bag.

And above, you can see how the other authentic Off-White Binder Clip bags musth ave their stripes, in the three other different patterns.

Looking at the first bag, we’ve spotted six stripes, and at the second one we’ve spotted another six stripes, and lastly, the red back have seven stripes.

Step 4: Analyze the text on the clip of your Off-White bag

For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to look at the text printed on the clip of the fake vs real OW Binder Clip bags.

As you can see from the image with the fake vs real Off-White Binder Clip bags above, the fake OW bag has its “Off-White TM” text badly engraved into the metal.

That is because the fake bag has its text fit too little deep inside the metal, and so, the text on the fake item is too thin.

Looking at the authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag, you can see how its “Off-White TM” text is fit deeper inside the metal, and so, it has a thicker look than the fake bag’s text.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Examine the text on the keychain of your Off-White Binder Clip bag

As for the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to look at the real vs fake OW bags for their text engraved on the keychain.

And, yep, as always, let’s first have a look at the real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bag image below, and after that, we will explain the flaw on the fake bag’s keychain.

how to spot fake off-white bag

In the image with the authentic vs replica Off-White Binder Clip bag image above, you can see how the fake Off-White bag has its “OFF-WHITE c/o VIRGIL ABLOH” text at the wrong thicknes.

That is because, yet again, the fake Off-White bag has its text engraved too little deep inside the metal, and so, it looks too thin.

Besides, the fake Off-White Binder Clip bag has its text at the wrong size, as it is bigger than the same inscription seen on the genuine bag.

Mentioning the legit Off-White bag, you can observe how its text is thicker and smaller than the fake bag’s text, and so, the genuine text has this sort of a boxier look when compared to the fake bag’s text.

Step 6: Fake vs real Off-White Binder Clip bag profile shape

Moving to the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we will have a quick look at the real vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bags for their profile side’s shape.

off-white bag authenticity check

In the image with the authentic vs fake Off-White Binder Clip bags above, you can observe how the authentic bag has a straight and narrow look.

And then, looking at the fake Off-White bag, you can see how it has this sort of a fat look at the bottom side, and so, it looks wider than what it should look.

At the same time, we’d like to say that both of the bags were empty, and so, the comparison between the real vs fake Off-White bags was fair (because if a bag was filled with items, its shape would be wider).

Step 7: Look at the belt on your Off-White Binder Clip bag

As for the seventh and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Binder Clip bags, we are going to look at the classic Off-White belt.

Let’s have a quick look at the reference image with the fake vs real Off-White Binder Clip bag images below, and after that, we’ll explain it all.

In the image with the fake vs legit Off-White Binder Clip bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag has its “Weight Securing System” looking a big too thick, especially on the letter “W” in the word “Weight”.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Binder Clip bag has its “Weight Securing System” text looking thinner than the fake bag’s text on the belt.
