Hey guys! I’ve done several product reviews of some mainstream luxury brands. Today, I feel like reviewing my Goyard St Louis GM tote replica for a change. I hope you enjoy this review as much as I enjoy this bag.
Why I bought a Fake Goyard?
1. I Need A Gym Bag / Travel Bag
The reason why I purchased this Goyard tote replica was that my old gym bag/travel bag is badly worn. It was an ordinary tote I got from a high-street store a few years back. It was sturdy and durable. But it just looks too worn to use any longer. So I had been doing my research on roomy totes for a while.
2. Goyard Is Stylish & Fits My Needs
One day during my routine research, I gravitated to this Goyard St Louis GM tote which has plenty of room inside and the most fascinating interlocking Chevron pattern on its canvas. As I dug deeper, I was obsessed with the secrecy of this mysterious brand. And the tote bag seems to be just the dream bag for work-out. At that moment, I told myself, “I need to have it!”
3. Goyard Is Exclusive & Hard to Buy
For fashionistas, Goyard must ring a bell. And for those who just made it to the fashion world, it is perfectly normal not knowing the brand.
Why is Goyard so exclusive?
- No Ads & Sell Online: Goyard is such an elusive and understated brand since they neither advertise their products nor sell them online from their website.
- Limited Number of Stores: Goyard doesn’t engage in any kind of e-commerce, so buyers can only purchase Goyard products at Goyard boutiques around the world. But according to their official website, there are only 36 Goyard stores all over the globe, with only 6 in the US.
As a result, customers are very hard to get authentic Goyard products. They either turn to the resale website for pre-owned Goyard or go to the replica market.
If You Know Nothing About Goyard St Louis GM Tote
Before you splurge on a new bag in the chaotic replica market, it is your top priority to know everything about the authentic bag. Don’t skip this step or you will end up feeling sorry about your purchase. So I’ve done my research on the tote and here is all the need-to-know information on Goyard St Louis GM tote.
Goyard St Louis Tote was initially made as a beach bag. (No kidding!) Authentic Goyard St Louis Tote slouches due to its lack of structure. It’s made with Goyardine which is a natural fiber material and the iconic coated cloth/canvas of the brand. It is a mix of linen, hemp, and cotton and is coated for durability and resulting in a leather-like look yet with water resistance. (That’s why it has a sheen.)
The Goyardine chevron print comprises three layers of colors and the iconic interlocking Chevron pattern “Y” is formed by small paint dots.
The Goyard St Louis tote’s design and pattern are particularly popular in cities such as New York and Chicago. There are 11 color options, but black with black or light brown trim is a typical Goyard color, so I chose a black bag with light brown trim. The brown straps, on the other hand, do not fade or develop a patina like the LV bags.
There is a removable pouch with the same design and color as the tote. The pouch is secured to the tote by a leather strap that is not detachable from the handle. The tote also features a white lining and no top zipper.
My Review of the Goyard Replica
After reading the basic information about this tote, you should have a general understanding of what an accurate Goyard Tote replica should look like. Good, it would be of great help if you try to hunt for one later. Now on to the review!

I was impressed by the excellent quality of the canvas the first time I cast an eye on this tote. The canvas has a spot-on iconic interlocking Chevron pattern with accurate “Y” letters! It was a happy surprise. Besides, the canvas has a beautiful sheen to it. I think the material does repel water as authentic Goyardine does.
The stitching looks even and perfects all over the bag.
The handles look amazing with neat stitching and glazing. I checked and simply didn’t see any loose threads or any other flaws in the whole bag.
The lining is white with nice stitching. The tote has a crisp brand imprint on the metal and a hot stamp inside the pocket without any visible messiness. It has luxury-looking leather trims and the leather wrinkles like authentic totes.
This tote looks and feels sturdy, but in the meantime, it’s soft and lightweight, and very easy to fold.
But the handles get a little uncomfortable if I put too many things in them. It happens to the real bag too, so I can’t take off any points from it.
No Chemical smell comes with this fake Goyard tote, which is amazing.
I am more than satisfied with the quality, so I am giving it a 10!
The canvas has just the correct sheen which looks identical to the Goyardine on each authentic St Louis tote. I am not sure how they achieved this, but I’m in love with this canvas. The raised texture was there as it should be when I ran my fingers all over the bag.
Hurray to the “Y”! I had read tons of reviews about how off their totes were in terms of this aspect and how difficult it was to get a fake Goyard St Louis Tote with and correct interlocking Chevron pattern, so I guess I was lucky to receive the best Goyard tote replica with accurate “Y” from Louis.
The serial number of this fake Goyard tote is right on the strap that attaches the pouch to the tote as an authentic one would and it looks correct in terms of the format which comprises three letters followed by six numbers. However, the font of the serial number appears somewhat different, so I will deduct 0.25 for the sake of accuracy. But it was so minor that I had trouble even finding it.
The embossing looks correct in terms of position and font. The “MADE IN FRANCE” logo is located on the leather trim centered between two handles. The interior lining matches the authentic version in all the details – color, leather trim, and all.
The detachable pouch looks identical with a similar shape to the authentic pouch. The interior Goyard stamping looks crisp and clean.
Everyone kept telling me that GM is way too big. But I didn’t care because that was what I was going for. I also like the way it slouches when sat, it just looks kind of cute.
Taking the price into account, it just seems more rational to invest $350 on a flimsy bag like this than spend over $2,000 (even approaching $3,000) on some pre-loved platforms.
I’ve read reviews that complained about how authentic totes got badly worn in the corners from use and feel even more thankful to have bought the best Goyard St Louis tote bag.
What Fits in My Fake Goyard Bag & What else do I use it for?
This Goyard St Louis GM Tote replica is the perfect gym bag in my book. I use it 3-4 times a week when I go to the gym. It is so versatile that I simply love to stuff all my clothes, towel, water bottle, and some other basics in it.
If you worry that things may fall out easily without a top zipper, you can always put a scarf or in my case, a sweaty shirt on top. Nobody’s gonna touch a dirty and smelly shirt. LOL.
I also use it as my travel bag when I go on business trips. You can carry it on the plane and it fits under a plane seat!
Sometimes I would carry it as a leisure bag. To make it organized and tidy inside the tote, I use some purse organizers that I ordered online to keep things together. These are very useful.
My Goyard St Louis Tote replica also comes with incredible packability. It can be packed into my luggage without effort because it lies flat entirely. It takes up no room. Structured bags can never achieve that.
It is so versatile and stunning that it indeed adds spice to my life. If you’re on the fence about getting a gorgeous Goyard St Louis tote replica, just do it! You won’t regret this.
I am worried about wiring money to China to pay for this bag. Did you wire this money? Is this totally safe as my bank does not want me to do it.
I was as worried as you were when I first purchased from Louis, but I ended up placing my order. Luckily the purchase went well and Louis is a site I frequently visit. But as I said in my blog it should always be up to you.
Hi Angie! Have been following you for years now and I love your content! Question, I noticed you purchased your Goyard replica and your Gucci shoes from Louis-mirror. I know you’ve also been a steady customer of designer discreet. Since they also carry Goyard bags, I was wondering if there was a reason you ordered from Louis mirror versus designer, discreet? Wondering if you would rate the DD Goyard the same? 🙂
Sorry I took so long to reply.
Actually, I didn’t try to compare the two sites when I purchased my goyard bag as I know they both offer good quality replicas. I assumed I bought it from Louis because I could also get the Gucci shoes at the same time. Anyway, you should choose whichever you feel comfortable with :）
Hey Angie, thanks for all your amazing reviews! I’ve been following you for many years now and love your content!! Question, I noticed you purchased your Goyard bag as well as your Gucci shoes from Louis-mirror. I also know you have often purchased from designer discreet as well. Is there a reason for choosing Louis mirror over designer discreet for your Goyard bag? Just wondering if the quality at designer discreet has changed? Thanks so much!
it truly is very HARD to buy a real Goyard
This was awesome info.
