Louis Vuitton Fakes: How They Work

(with video below) Louis Vuitton is known worldwide for its renowned elegance and unsurpassed quality across its product range. As one of the world's leading international fashion houses, Louis Vuitton sells its products through standalone boutiques, lease departments in high-end department stores, and through the e-commerce section of its website.

The success of the company created an amazing industry of replicas in itself, scammers all over the world now making counterfeit products. Whether is a Louis Vuitton bag, wallet, purse, shoes, or belt, you should always be aware of the replicas going around, especially when you see advertisments with "Louis Vuitton Sale" or "Louis Vuitton bags cheap" offers.

Today we are going to educate you on how to differentiate the authentic Louis Vuitton bags from the replicas. We are not affiliated with LV in any way, we're just educating consumers around the world.

Depending on the collection, Louis Vuitton uses a variety of textiles to line their bags: canvas lining in red or honey, fine micro monogram textile, cross-grain leather, tone on tone polyester, or microfiber suede. Con artists pay little to no attention on the interior. Most commonly they would line the interior with plastic or cheap tan or brown suede.

The stitching on the bag must be perfect. Fake Louis Vuitton bag stitches are rough and imperfect, so one way to know if the bag is original is by taking note of the stitches existent on the bag.

Louis Vuitton uses oxidizing natural cowhide leather that turns a dark golden honey color over time, the leather must feel expensive, fake bags have plastic wrapped around the handles. The oxidizing natural cowhide leather does not need protective plastic, and bags that come with that plastic are fakes.

If the look of the bag is something that appears to not look like anything that Louis Vuitton has ever designed, chances are it is a fake. Louis Vuitton is well-known for their high quality luxury goods. If the piece is of less quality or a non-existing style then it is a replica. Remember, just because it has "LV" logo doesn't mean that it is.

 

The symbol on the bag must be symmetrical, if the symbols are not symmetrical, that means the bag is fake. The LV on Louis Vuitton bags are always lined up. The pattern should never be tilted or not proportionate to the other side. You may need to search for the date stamp; they are occasionally hidden and may be difficult to find in some models. The date stamp starts with two letters and ends with numbers. An example is SD, which means made in the USA.

Here are some date code used: France: AO, A1, A2, AN, AR, AS, BA, BJ, CT, DU, FL, LW, MB, MI, NO, RA, RI, SD (also USA), SL, SN, SP, SR, TH, VI; USA: FH, OS, SD; Spain: CA, LO, LB, LM.
