Learn how to spot fake Chanel 22 Bag Grey Silvers with this detailed 38 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.
Take a closer look at the printed Chanel logo in white on the box and check that the print is solid, the logo is centered, and the correct typeface has been used.
The wrapping is secured with a small clear sticker featuring the Chanel logo. Make sure the printed logo is solid and sharp, and the correct typeface has been used.
Take a closer look at the stitching along the 22 bag. Check that each line of stitching is perfectly straight, and the size of the stitches is consistent. If you look at the individual stitches, you'll notice some have a subtle slant to them - this indicates that the bag was hand-stitched. This is also a good place to see the faint texture of the calfskin used in the bag. Note the different lines and patterns of the material and how there is no consistent design to it.
In 2021, Chanel replaced their date code and authenticity card with a microchip. The microchip itself is inside a metal plate which features the CC logo and an 8-digit alphanumeric serial code printed on top. All information about the bag including date of manufacture, distribution, purchase and even repairs is stored on the microchip, which can only be read using machines at Chanel boutiques.
