How do you spot a fake Hermès Lindy bag?

There are a few easy things to keep in mind when trying to spot a fake Hermès Lindy bag. Because all Hermès bags are handmade, stitching is a good metric to use (spotting a fake Birkin bag calls for the same careful inspection). Each bag is hand-sewn according to Hermès’s celebrated, so while the sew lines will have some inconsistencies, the work will not be messy, and there won’t be any stitches that are out of place or out of line.

Hardware on authentic Hermès bags is always made of a genuine precious metal — locks, keys, studs, and other pieces of hardware are usually made of brass that is hand-polished and plated with fine gold, palladium or permabrass. This metal will feel heavy and substantial, and it will not tarnish.

Did you find an “authenticity card” tucked inside your Hermès Lindy bag? You shouldn’t have — Hermès doesn’t accompany its bags with any card like this.

On a fake Hermès Lindy bag, the Hermès logo will look irregular, with oversized or blocky text. An authentic Hermès bag has a label stamp — with clear lettering that is lightly pressed into the bag’s leather — that reads “Hermès Paris Made in France.” If your bag has an uneven or crooked label, you may have a fake Hermès Lindy bag.
