  • YOU can TELL if the person you see in the mall is carrying a real one or not, and how YOU can TELL if the handbag you’re buying is the real McCoy! Here are four ways:

    1. THE PRICE IS WRONG Louis Vuitton monogram canvas bags run from $350 and up, with most selling for $1000. So if you’re buying one that costs less than $300, you’re NOT getting a deal… you’re getting a FAKE. Louis Vuitton does NOT discount. The first time I bought one, I was stupid enough to ask if there was one, shame on me! There is no such thing as a Louis Vuitton SALE in Greenhills or any tiangge, either. They just don’t do it, EVER!

  • LOCATION Louis Vuitton doesn’t have any street resellers, so if you bought yours from one, most likely it’s not the genuine article. Also be careful if you are buying your LV handbags online, sure you can find authentic ones, but there are a ton of fakes. One website that is authorized to sell authentic LV bags is www.eluxury.com.

    It is important to always buy from official Louis Vuitton boutiques; this is probably the only way to ensure authenticity these days. If you simply cannot afford to shop at Louis Vuitton, exercise great caution when buying from sites such as eBay. If possible, ask for the original receipt from the seller, and ensure that you can get a refund if you are not happy with the product. Remember to check with the FakesRevealed guide when your item arrives.

  • In general, to identify the difference between real and fake Louis Vuitton handbags, it all starts with craftsmanship. The craftsmanship and materials used to make the real Louis Vuitton handbags cannot be matched by any good replica.  If something is just doesn’t look right, the item most likely isn’t real.
