How to recognize a real Louis Vuitton

Can you recognize a real Louis Vuitton? In this post I’m going to show you how to recognize different kinds of Louis Vuitton bags, it will be useful if you are buying a secondhand Louis Vuitton or if you found yourself staring at other people’s handbags and wondered if those are real or not. I’m going to show you the Louis Vuitton Azur Damier Speedy 35 and the Alma Monogram, but the principle is the same on every bag Louis Vuitton has ever made. I’ve used the dots and circles to help you understand. Let’s start with the Speedy 35 Azur Damier:

All you need to do is look at the design and the seams, you’ll see that it will be exactly the same on each side. Look at the picture below and you’ll see it yourself.  In the picture below the “Louis Vuitton” squares are both at the sixth square starting from the top of the bag. And the squares around the handles are the same colors and the same cuts.

You can see the seams more clearly in the picture below. You see that where there is a blue square on the left seam there is also a blue square on the right seam, and that goes with every Louis Vuitton bag.

You can also need to check the first squares under the zipper, as you can see in the picture below.

The same process can be applied to the Louis Vuitton Monogram bags, instead of the squares you have to look for the LV and the other designs, and they have to match on each side just before the seams and the zipper.

You also need to look for a code inside because every original Louis Vuitton has one. Also the quality of the real LV bag is way higher, most of the times the fake Louis Vuitton are made of plastic. If you are buying from authorized Louis Vuitton stores you will always find real Louis Vuitton purses, but this guide is useful if you are buying secondhand or from the internet.
