Trying to find information on how to authenticate Goyard online is perilous at best. While this brand is highly sought after, it’s still one of the hardest to find online. There are few retail locations in the US and if you are going to be shopping resale for a Goyard piece, makes sure you do your homework carefully and if needed, have it authenticated by an expert. You can find a list of authentication companies here.
I’m also included reference photos below to give you an idea of what to look for and what to look out for! One note, Goyard’s purchased from the stores do have plastic on the handles!
