7 Tips for Spotting a Fake Louis Vuitton ...


After being burned (more than once) by bogus sellers online, I finally became much more shrewd about spotting a fake Louis Vuitton bag when I saw one. My mistake was always that I would get excited about seeing a "great deal," then jump on it too quickly because I was afraid another buyer would snag it out from under me. Eventually, I got fed up enough to learn some tips for spotting a fake Louis Vuitton purse just by looking for certain clues. It is possible to find a great deal on an authentic designer bag that is gently used, but unless you know what to look for, you will become prey to the unscrupulous sellers hawking cheap knockoffs.

1. Lining Color

There are some pretty convincing knockoffs out there, so you need to learn how to identify a fake bag by closely examining the details, such as the lining color. Spotting a fake Louis Vuitton bag usually involves doing some homework, so take a gander at LV's official website to look at the lining colors for each style of bag. For instance, if you are looking at one of LV's popular Monogram Multicolore bags, the lining color will always be the same for that particular style. A white Monogram Multicolore bag always has a raspberry lining, and the black multicolor bag always has a mushroom-grey lining. Anything different, it's a fake.
