In this guide, we’l talk about Goyard bags. We’ll show you what makes an authentic bag, as well as how to spot a counterfeit.

Any Goyard bag can be verified with this guide.

How To Spot A Fake Goyard Bag

Answer: Check the “GOYARD / PARIS / MADE IN FRANCE” text. Authentic bags must have the same thickness for every letter.

1. Label

  • Authentic: Thinner “GOYARD PARIS” engravings.
  • Fake: Thicker inscriptions.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Goyard authenticators:

2. Honore Paris

  • Authentic: All the letters have the asme font-weight.
  • Fake: The “G” in “GOYARD” is too thin.

3. Stitching

Goyard Bag Stitching
  • Authentic: Thinner, longer threads.
  • Fake: Thicker and shorter stitches.

Note how the fake stitches are also less dense in comparison to the original ones.

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.
