To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags is to look at the square label inside the bag, as well at the “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” inscription. The fake YSL SDJ bags always have these little inscriptions at the wrong thickness, and as for the label, the fake bags usually have their stitching at the wrong thickness, while the real deal is always flawless.

How to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags

Step 1: Real vs fake YSL Sac De Jour bag interior label

For the first method on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent SDJ bags, we are going to have a quick look at the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags for their interior label.

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the label inside the bag as the very best way to spot fake YSL Sac De Jour bags, and therefore, we recommend that you never skip checking this spot on your Sac De Jour.

authentic vs fake yves saint laurent sac de jour

In the image with the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Sac De Jour’s text and stitching on the label has the wrong thickness.

Starting with the “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” text, you can observe how the fake YSL bag’s text looks too thick and how it is a bit too small.

Authentic Yves Saint Laurent Paris bag’s “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” inscription looking thinner and a tad bit bigger than the one on the fake bag.

Up next, looking at the “MADE IN ITALY” engraved text, you can observe how the fake bag’s text looks too thick because it was fit too deep inside the leather.

Back to the legitimate Yves Saint Laurent Sac, you can see how its “MADE IN ITALY” inscription appears to be thinner, since it was fit less deep inside the leather.

That aside, the fake bag’s “MADE IN ITALY” text also looks crooked. If you look at the letters “M” and “A”, you can see how they are too small, and how the rest of the “DE IN ITALY” inscription looks too big.

The genuine Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour’s “MADE IN ITALY” text has the same thickness and size for each of its characters, unlike the fake bag’s text which is crooked due to different sizes for its symbols.

Now, looking at the stitching on all sides of the label ,you can notice in the real vs fake YSL Sac De Jour picture above how the fake bag’s threads are too thin and too long, and how the real bag’s threads look thicker and shorter.

Step 2: Inspect the “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” text inside the bag (on the other side of the flap)

Moving to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Paris Sac De Jour bags, we’ll have to remain inside the bag and have a look at the other side of the flap, where we’ll find a similar text to the previously inspected label’s text, but this time, we have no stitched label here.

This time, we’ll have to deal with just a simple “SAINT LAURENT PARIS / MADE IN ITALY” inscription on both the authentic vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jours.

real vs fake ysl sac de jour

In the picture with the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Paris Sac De Jour bags above, you can see how the fake bag’s “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” inscription is way thinner than what it should be

Looking at the authentic bag, it is noticeable how its “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” text looks thicker and way bulkier than the fake bag’s text.

Then, the “MADE IN ITALY” text is not so clear on the fake bag (due to the quality of the picture, and we’re sorry for that), and even with the picture this blurry, you can notice how the fake bag’s text is fit way deeper inside the bag than the real deal’s text.

Speaking of which, you can notice how the authentic bag must have its “MADE IN ITALY” text thick and deep into the leather, but of course, not as deep as the fake one.

Step 3: Check the branding text on the exterior side of the bag

Stepping outside of the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags, we will have to look at the fake vs real Sac De Jour YSL bags for yet another inscription with the brand’s name.

The text seen on the exterior side of the bag is also similar to the ones checked above, but now we have only the “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” words.

With this being said, let’s quickly look at the image with the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags below.

fake vs real ysl sac de jour

The picture with the authentic vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags above shows you how the replica YSL SDJ bag’s text is at a whole different thickness from the authentic bag’s text.

Going more into detail, you can notice how the fake bag’s “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” text looks way thinner than the text seen on the real bag, which is thicker than the fake one.

Even though the authentic bag’s text is engraved into leather and the fake bag’s text is engraved into patent leather, the thickness on the authentic bags should be the same even when the fabrics are different.

Step 4: Fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour handler base stitching

As for the fourth method on how to authenticate Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags, we are now going to have a look at the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent bags for their stitching at the base of the handler.

Precisely, we are going to look at the rectangular shaped patch which is the base the handler that helps you grab your Sac De Jour bag.

The image with the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent bags above shows you how the fake bag’s stitching is at the wrong thickness, length and generally improperly shaped.

Looking at each of the threads at the base of the handler of the fake bag, you can notice how the stitches are too long and way thinner than the real ones.

Now that we’ve mentioned the real bag, you can notice how each of its threads is attached with high care, as there’s no stitch that is too long or too thin, unlike the fake bag’s stitches.

The authentic bag has its stitches thicker thicker and smaller, and you can also see how every spot on the edge of the patch is filled with these highly detailed threads, while on the fake bag, there are many spots where there’s extra threads, therefore leaving empty spaces that are nowhere to be seen on the real bags.

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

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

Step 5: Check the zipper of your Yves Saint Laurent SDJ bag

Moving forward to the fifth method on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour products, we are now going to have a look at the real vs fake Sac De Jour Yves Saint Laurent bags for their text on the zipper.

The zipper greets us with yet another “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” inscription, and so does the fake bag with its text at the wrong thickness.

In the picture with the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” text is fit really deep inside the metal zipper, and how it looks too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic YSL Sac De Jour bags “SAINT LAURENT / PARIS” text was fit less deep inside the metal, as it looks thinner than the fake one.

Step 6: Analyze the text on the keychain of your Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bag

Going to the sixth method on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags, we are now going to have a quick look at the keychain’s text.

As always, lets quickly brief the image with the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Paris Sac De Jour bags below, and after that, we’ll explain everything.

By that, we mean that the fake bag’s “PARIS” text is too thin and too big, but leaving that aside, you can notice how the text actually uses a different font-weight from the real bag’s text.

Looking at the genuine Yves Saint Laurent Paris Sac De Jour bag, you can see how its text looks thicker and smaller, and if you’re going to check any authentic bags, you’ll see how they use the same font everywhere, and how this detail never varies throughout the genuine YSL SDJ bags.

Leaving the bag aside for a second, for the tenth way on how to spot fake YSL Sac De Jour bags, we’ll have to look at the key that opens the lock of your Sac De Jour. Yep, this bag has the same text written on top of it.
