How to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton

Even if it sounds unbelievable, to spot a replica Louis Vuitton Speedy is a really hard job to do. Replica manufacturers have developed their abilities to replicate these kinds of luxury bags so well that it has almost impossible to differentiate a good replica from the original Louis Vuitton Speedy. Still there are a few things that make the difference that can be followed to spot a fake LV Speedy.

It is really important that you know the parts of the bag before purchasing one. You should check the type of lining, you should know if it should have feet or not, how the base should be, where the D-ring should be positioned, what codes and markings should it have and where. All these details will help you determine if the bag you got, or intend to get is fake or not. I will present here a few general guidelines that can help you distinguish a fake bag, but you can also check the original web site and get all the information you need about the genuine Louis Vuitton Speedy.

Starting with the particularities of the lining, I can start by saying that the inside parts of a Monogram Speedy bag are all the time a little bit tricky. Even if the cotton canvas has a very common brown color, you can find on the market a lot of variations of this color for the Louis Vuitton Speedy replicas. As Louis Vuitton never used suede lining, not even for the vintage models, please don’t get fooled by it. Louis Vuitton is using a material named Alcantara that looks a lot like the suede lining, but it isn’t actually suede. The color of this particular material is grey mushroom, not brown. This specific material is never available in dark brown. All the Monogram Speedy models have to have a brown cotton canvas lining, it doesn’t matter what year the bag was manufactured in. If you find a bag that has any other kind of lining you should avoid it if you want a genuine bag cause it is for sure a fake one.

For the very exclusivist Louis Vuitton everything is very important, even the small details like stitching. For the original Louis Vuitton bags all the stitches are even and regular. The stitching pattern from similar parts on the bag should be identical. I can give you an example for this. On the Monogram Speedy bag leather tab, where the handles attach onto the bag there should be five identical and even stitches.

Louis Vuitton uses a very specific font to write “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” on the tags and on the leather patches. All the other types of fonts used don’t do anything but show us that the bag is a fake. The original Louis Vuitton bags have a very round “O”; the two letters “T” do not touch each other in the word “VUITTON”; and the “N”, “A” and “V” are very pointy. There is no paint between the letters on the original bag, the whole engraving should be extremely clean and clear.

It seems that the creator of these amazingly beautiful handbags has proudly engraved his name all over his products. Every metal clasp, button, zipper, or lock has a number or the Louis Vuitton name written on it. You should take care at the quality of all the materials used, not only the leather. There is no plastic painted in gold on the original LV bags.

In the last 25 years Louis Vuitton has been manufacturing his bags in countries like, USA, Spain, Germany or Italy. So if you buy a bag that has the engraving “Made in Italy” or “Made in Germany” it does not mean it is fake, even if the origins of LV are in France.

Please don’t forget that the Louis Vuitton handbags are very expensive and they should look and feel like this, no cheap materials are allowed on the genuine LV bags. And also please don’t trust anyone that is selling you an original Speedy bag for $300.

Is This Even A Fake Birkin Bag?

Hermes

It’s amazing to see how many replica sites appear in the course of a year but not many last. I’ve recently received this review of a fake Birkin Bag and I was curious to see what this new site is all about.

Gladbuybags.com Review

You know what the thing is with these new replica websites? Even though they are not scam, most of the time they are not reputable or professional either.

This review is useful because I think many could get tempted by this replica site. They have a diverse selection of replica bags and they are pretty cheap too. I’m sure that their photos are of replica handbags and not authentic bags but at the same time they are not consistent or detailed enough.

A new friend of the blog came across this replica site in her search of a replica Hermes Birkin and here is her review:

“Hi Eva!

I recently bought my first replica bag and that’s how I found your blog. While I don’t have experience with replicas, I love fashion and I read about designer bags all the time.

I discovered this replica site through a Facebook group and I said I could give it a try because they had a 15 days return policy anyway. Now that I’ve learned more about replicas I know that the bag was actually really expensive considering the poor quality.

The experience with this site was not great which is why I even sent this Gladbuybags.com review even though I’ve already returned the bag. Paying for the bag was a hassle and contacting their customer support team was a nightmare! The payment processing page did not work when I tried to fill in my card details and it took forever to get an answer for their CS. You can only talk to them through a contact form which is really frustrating when you have a serious problem like that.

The bag arrived after 8 days and I was in shock! I don’t know what that was, but it was definitely not a Birkin! It looked so terrible, you can see it in the photos I attached! I had to pay the shipping costs and I had to send tens of messages and even threaten them to finally get my money back!

Please let other women know about this too!”

This has to be one of the worst Hermes knockoff bags I’ve ever seen! It looks more like an inspired Birkin, not a replica. I think you can find something better even in a flea market!

I’m really glad that you got your money back in the end but this replica site still looks really shady to me. I would have probably canceled my order the moment I realized they are so difficult to reach. Trustworthy replica sites are also easy to reach because they have nothing to hide. This is why I’m sure that this site will not last for long if they don’t change the way they treat their customers!

Girls, I know that things like low prices and free delivery are tempting but it’s not just about that! If they seem unprofessional and make it difficult for you to contact them, stay away!

How To Spot Good Replica Louis Vuitton Handbags Out And About

Louis Vuitton

There are all kinds of Louis Vuitton handbags out there. Some are the real deal, some are crappy fakes, and some are pitch perfect replicas. If you want to look great, you’ve got to know the difference between a good and a bad fake.

The first step to know on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags is knowing what you’re looking for. I hope this guide will help you make the right decisions and buy wonderful Louis Vuitton bag. Here is what you need to know:

Like I said, the first thing to do is:

•Picking a style that you like to check out
•Finding that style on the Louis Vuitton site and checking out the specs
•Knowing the features that are particular to that bag
•Looking at some high resolution shots both on the site and of celebrities wearing the bag you want (this will give you a sense as to how these bags look when worn)

But, beyond looking at the specs and pics that the official Louis Vuitton site provides you with, you’ve got to know a little about Louis Vuitton bags in general. Louis Vuitton is the most popular maker of luxury handbags in the world and with good reason – their bags are marvels of fashion and design. The canvas, leather, hardware, and special features of a Louis Vuitton bag are unique and particular. You simply need to know a thing or two about LV so that you can avoid getting duped by inaccurate fake Louis Vuitton bags.

Knowing the Features Particular to Louis Vuitton Handbags

Louis Vuitton Canvas

Some people mistakenly believe that Louis Vuitton is all about leather. Maybe this is because leather is supposedly a fancier material. But, the fact is, Louis Vuitton made its name with amazing canvas prints. Starting with the Damier canvas in 1888, Louis Vuitton has continued to unveil gorgeous canvas print handbags including the ubiquitous classic Monogram and its many variations.

Real Louis Vuitton canvas is sturdy, waterproof, and scratch resistant. The material was created for luggage, so it is built to last. Good replica Louis Vuitton canvas will be heavy, but not stiff. Make sure to check that the monogram logo is properly replicated. Look closely at the photos that the replica site provides – do they match up the photos of the original bag?

Make sure that the canvas has the proper thickness (not flimsy, not too stiff), that the color matches that of the original, that all patters match up and that all the markings are not only correct but are accurately rendered.

Leather Trim

So, Louis Vuitton may have made their mark in canvas, but they are no slouch when it comes to leather. Louis Vuitton handbags usually feature high quality leather trim. Excellent quality leather (the kind found in real LV bags) will grow richer, darker, and suppler with time. You can tell real Louis Vuitton bags because the leather becomes honeyed with time.

When checking the leather trim on fake Louis Vuitton bags, make sure to look at:
• The coloring (real bags have a beige color at first that slowly becomes like honey)
• The seams (should be made with strong yellow thread)

Hardware

Louis Vuitton handbags feature gold toned brass hardware; not silver. A good replica will feature this same material, and a bad one will often have cheap, light hardware. It’s important that you make sure the hardware of your replica handbag is heavy – otherwise it may fall apart (or fall off!) with every day wear.
• Make sure that the material is up to standards and is heavy
• Make sure the color matches that of the original
• Check for engravings and make sure they are identical to the original

Special Features

Each Louis Vuitton handbag has its own special features. This is one of the areas where many fake bags are lacking – they can get a decent canvas and put it together fine, but they haven’t paid attention to important details that are unique to individual bags. It’s up to you to know what is particular about your bag of choice and make sure that your replica matches.

Things to look for include:

• Exterior and interior pockets
• Handles and adjustable straps
• Clasps and closures (and whether they have engravings)
• Engravings and logos (on hardware and plaques)
• Extra pockets
• Draw strings, tassels, etc.

Remember not only to check for what is missing on fake Louis Vuitton bags, but also whether there is something on your bag that shouldn’t be there. If you thoroughly check all bags before buying and read this guide on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags, you’re on the right path. This is the only way you will be sure to get the bag you want and that you’ll get something that looks and feels as it should. One of my favorite sites is so you can check if out if you’re looking for a great bag.

There are a lot of replica advice and guides here on the blog. Make sure you read them to find out where to get the best fake Louis Vuitton bags.
