    Please post authenticity questions related to GUCCI in this thread.

    The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

    Please follow the following rules:

    Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is in order to prevent duplication requests and to make it simpler for people to 'search' for items which may have been posted previously. This is not a thread to ask general questions about GUCCI, please refer to our main GUCCI forum for such information.

    This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format:

    Listing number:

    If the bag in question is not on an auction site, please use the following:

    Item Name (if you know it):
    Link (if available):
    Who took the pictures:
    History of the bag:

    Please give us as much information as you can and then attach any pictures (all authentication must include pictures).

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
    Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted.
    Please limit your request to one (1) per post; otherwise it gets too confusing keeping them all straight.
    Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.
    To ensure that additional pictures requested are seen by the authenticators, please utilize the quote feature or provide a link to your original request and response. Failure to do so may result in your query not being answered.
    Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.
    Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.


    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods. The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such.

    It is really imperative that you first get the right pictures needed to properly authenticate GUCCI items. Please read this and get the requested pics before you post your request in the Authenticate This thread.


    1) photos of the bag (yes many times people just post a photo of the tag, not enough!)
    2) close ups of the serial tag: front showing the " Gucci made in italy" stamping and the back showing the serial number
    3) may also need close ups of the hardware markings, eg D ring
    4) if the style has it, a close up of the cursive gold Gucci script, eg on the Abbey styles
    5) this applies to both current and vintage styles
    6) please do not just post a photo of the serial number/tag (the authenticators need to see more than that)


    1) close up of the serial number located vertically underneath the credit card slots (it is perpendicular to the direction of the slots)
    2) " Gucci made in italy" stamping in the bottom corner
    3) close ups of the button snaps help too


    1) close ups of markings, e.g. close up of stamps on the back of the belt, close ups of the markings on the soles of heels, inside the heels, close ups of markings on the inside arm of glasses etc
    2) basically the authenticators need good clear close ups of markings
    3) and an auction listing if there is one

    When taking close up photos please or ask sellers to, or if you are taking them yourself:

    1) NOT use flash
    2) NOT use zoom
    3) do use macro mode that is usually indicated by a flower on most digital cameras
    4) do take photo in lots of light (no flash though), by a window is good, but glare is bad
    5) use a steady hand

    Ensuring that you have read this will help the authenticators help you better :yes:

    Addition 26.05.16
    If your post is answered with 'Insufficient pictures/pics/photos' you will know your photos are NOT compliant with the above and therefore cannot be judged either authentic/fake. No amount of bumping will result with a conclusive judgement.

    Please jump in and help out if you are a regular user of Gucci products and especially if also a regular member of this Gucci forum. The usual 500+ posts is required

  7. Hello! I got the bag now and took my own pics.

    Item Name (if you know it): Gucci Park Avenue Small Tote
    Link (if available):
    Seller: Go Shopping USA on Tradesy
    Who took the pictures: I did
    History of the bag: Received the bag. Claim is authentic, new with tags.
    Comments: This bag seems to have thinner leather than I remembered when I originally looked at the bag in store in 2012/2013. Maybe I am mis-remembering? The leather extremely soft and floppy though with a great leather smell. I'm new to Gucci so I don't claim to know how their leather is.

    Thank you for looking!!
