Ladies Leather Handbags - How to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Bag
How to Spot a Replica Handbag?
A question I am often asked by people looking for ladies leather handbags is how can I spot a fake handbag ? Or how can I spot a replica handbag ? Or how can I tell if my handbag is genuine or a fake ? Or for specific brands how can I spot a replica or fake Louis Vuitton or even Louis Viton or a fake Marc Jacobs ?
This is understandable as genuine designer handbags cost a lot of money so people are naturally worried.
Firstly you need to apply some good old common sense. If it is too cheap it is a fake. It's as simple as that.

Secondly some designers have had enough of combating fake bags or replica purses, so they now only sell their handbags in their own stores or online at their own Internet site. This is the case with Louis Vuitton for example.
Online the only place you can be absolutely sure of getting a genuine Louis Vuitton handbag is at the Louis Vuitton website - eluxury.
There are some traders on the famous online auction site whose name I shall not mention, who claim to sell genuine Louis Vuitton bags and it is possible that some of them are indeed selling genuine bags and purses, but how can you be absolutely sure?
Thirdly, when trying to decide if the bag you are about to buy is a genuine designer handbag or a replica then, in addition to the price, you need to pay careful attention to the quality.
Genuine designer handbags are expensive for a reason, they are made with great attention to detail.
First, beware of any bag wrapped in plastic or bubble wrap, this is not the material of choice for wrapping expensive designer bags and purses. Second, designer handbags are works of art, there should be no wrinkles, creases, poor quality stitching, asymmetrical logos etc... everything needs to be perfect. Imperfect designer handbags are not tolerated.
For Louis Vuitton bags if there is a cheap looking circular tag made of plastic then steer clear, and most genuine dust bags only have the Louis Vuitton or LV logo. They do not have cheap tan, plastic or suede interiors and the patterns on Louis Vuitton bags are always lined up correctly.
The Louis Vuitton website explains that LV products are only available at Louis Vuitton stores - or from their offical website. Louis Vuitton leather handbags and other leather goods such as purses etc... are made in France, the USA or Spain, not the Far East, by experienced craftsmen who pay extreme attention to detail and use only the finest materials. That is why they are so expensive - but they also last a long time.

Also if somebody has a large stock of Louis Vuitton handbags then they are probably fakes, Louis Vuitton do not make vast amounts of their bags and certainly do not allow uncertified traders to have large stocks of them.
I hope this information has been of help
You can of course always buy something that looks like a genuine designer handbag but isn't if that is what you want, just don't pay too much money for it!
