DIOR GAUCHO The following are pictures of authentic Gaucho bags. A: The lambskin links must look like this color, and must look "dirty" (it has been finished with black wax for a vintage effect) B: The leather must be very smooth and shiny (it should have a very pronounced sheen in at least one of the pictures provided in any auction) C: The Dior logo must conform with the proportions of the Dior logo on the www.dior.com website. The D must be bigger than the other letters, BUT it must look like it still belongs to the "ior" letters (i.e. it cannot look any bit free-standing). D: Dior's face MUST have a groove in his face right in the middle of the space between his mouth and ears. Any medallion without this groove is fake. E: The "CD" engraving MUST look like the C and D are very close together. If they look like they have a space in between them (that is more than in that in the picture) the bag is fake. F: The Christian Dior PARIS logo MUST be cleanly and clearly embossed into the leather, and must look IDENTICAL to the Christian Dior logo on the back of a Parfums Christian Dior box (i.e. the logo on the back of their makeup/skincare/fragrance packages, which are an easy way to access authentic Dior). ANY differences are suspicious as they mean that a bag is fake. G: The two metal studs on the Gaucho medium and the Gaucho tote bags MUST be concealed by the Dior logo portion of the decorative belt buckle, but at extreme angles you should be able to see it. IF you are looking dead-straight at the bag, you shouldn't see them at all (if you see them the bag is fake). H: The two metal studs on the Gaucho double saddle MUST be concealed by the arch of the decorative belt buckle. If you see them at any angle the bag is fake.
