A genuine bag must have the Louis Vuitton monogram on the purse’s snaps;
-L.V. bags start out with light leather and over time, the leather will wear and darken;
- The handles, made of a strip of natural leather, turn darker with time. So if it’s not becoming darker, then it’s all paint and imitation;
-Also, the stitching on the handles must be clean and consistent and use yellow thread. The handles’ sides should be a shiny, glazed red;
-The zipper pull has to be heavy to the touch, brass hardware with an "LV" symbol on it;
-The LV monogram has irregular brown lines through the gold-colored letters, and flower pattern. Fakes could present a solid color or be too green or orange;
-Check out the ID- the card with the style number and name;
-Look at the lining ‘cause imitations have different styles and colors and of course, different lining.
