Louis Vuitton is a luxury French fashion house dedicated to the design of leather goods, clothing, jewelry and accessories. The Louis Vuitton brand, along with its LV monogram, were listed as the number 29 brand worldwide. Due to the luxury brand condition, it’s one of the most counterfeit brands in the fashion industry. While fake products are widely available and may look authentic, knowing how to differentiate a genuine Louis Vuitton from a fake one can assure the buyer the authenticity of the product they are purchasing.
Take note of the placement of the monogram on the bag, commonly known as LV logo. The V should be slightly above the L with the L passing through the lower left of the V. Louis Vuitton wallets are usually made with a single long piece of leather, which makes the monogram symmetrical on both sides.
Look at the sewing patterns. They always have five stitches through the leather tab where it meets the handle. Compare, if possible, two Louis Vuitton wallets side by side to identify the number of stitches placed, noting if the stitching is the same for each one.
Look at the wallet that the monogram is a single color, or the text is multi-color. With several colors on the monogram, it can be a sign of falsehood.
Look at the source in the wallet’s authenticity patch. Louis Vuitton only uses a specific font for all of its products with uppercase letters, same small spaces between letters, and O is very round. The text on the patch on the inside should be perfectly centered on the top front with Louis Vuitton written at the top, followed by the place where it was made, usually listed as Paris, but it may also appear such as USA, Switzerland, Germany or Italy.
Backpacks, bags and vintage pieces should offer a yellow-green coloration. The leather upholstery around should also have yellow stitching with white authenticity cards. These are a part of the set of measures that also include LV label and guarantee the authenticity of the product. These should be provided at the time of purchase by the seller, or next to the wallet if purchased online. Any seam that is not yellow, or a card of authenticity that is of a color other than white, shows that it is not authentic.
