How to tell if a Louis Vuitton bag is real

How to tell if a Louis Vuitton bag is real

There are so many details you can check to see whether your preloved Louis Vuitton bag is real or not. But, I'm not about to make this a thesis so here are a few simple points that you'll be able to remember the next time you're out thrifting. Scroll for my guide below!



The Font: On a real Louis Vuitton bag, the font will always be as follows: The base line of the “L” is short. The “O’s” are a perfect circle, and not oval. The two “T’s” are really close together. The font is one thing that counterfeiters get wrong a lot. It's not really worth their while making it perfect!



The Serial Code: I could go into country codes, styles and years but lets face it - you're here for quick, easy and practical tips. So, for that reason alone here is a website that you can enter your serial number into and they will tell you where and when it was made and if the serial number corresponds with their database.



The Stitching: The stitching is always even on a real Louis Vuitton bag. If you see messy stitching - avoid, avoid, avoid!




The Weight: People often overlook the weight of a designer bag. It's a massive indication to me as to whether a bag is authentic or not. It should have a strong and sturdy weight to it. If you feel the bag is flimsy or too light, then just leave it as you're probably dealing with a fake.


I really want to give you practical tools that you can easily remember when you're out and about shopping so I hope you found this blog post informative!
