Quality of Leathers
Inspect the quality of its leathers. They are supposed to feel dry, thick and somewhat rough. If the ones you are looking to buy feels a bit smooth, slippery or oily, then they're fake. Maybe you’ve used genuine ones in the past, and possibly you already know how they feel. Compare them and be sure the quality matches what you are already used to.
Nature of stitches
Check the pattern of the stitches on the handbag and make sure there are no irregularities. Every authentic Louis Vuitton handbag have stitches that are perfectly fitted in a correspondent manner. Fake ones usually have sloppy patterns of stitches and most of the time, you should be able to spot them right away.
Inspect the color of the interior lining region of the handbag and see if it matches with the outer. Real Louis Vuitton handbags maintain the same color shade both on their inner and outer sections. If the ones you are holding, differ in color then they are not genuine.
Look for the ‘’LV’’ logo on the handbag and be sure it is correctly printed with the right font size and style of appearance. Most of the time, counterfeits make mistakes by printing the logos with wrong font sizes and other tiny clues that usually get left out compared to the real ones.
Place of manufacture
Authentic Louis Vuitton handbags are generally made in France. However, for the past several years, the company has also produced in the United States, Germany, Spain and Italy. If your handbag was made in any country other than these ones mentioned, it’s definitely a fake.
Inspect the hardware of your handbag and check if it is a heavy metal or a light plastic. Genuine ones are supposed to be heavy and metallic, and if otherwise, they're fake. Also take note that the hardware usually have the ‘’LV’’ logos, printed on them.
