Can you tell me how to check LV fake points?


Let's read together.

When it comes to luxury brand handbags that everyone likes, that is “LOUIS VUITTON”! “LOUIS VUITTON” is the name of the luxury handbag brand that everyone adores. Among many brands, LV is especially well-liked and has exceptional sales in Japan. The most frequently asked question in the store is about the authenticity of LV because of the brand’s high sales and popularity, which makes it easy for imitations (i.e., counterfeit goods) to surface on the market. This time, I’ll concentrate on the characteristics that Louis Vuitton imitators frequently have and that non-LV customers can easily identify.

LOUIS VUITTON has all kind of fakes

Targets for imitation include high-end luxury brands with a global reputation, such as LV. The majority of fake goods are produced in factories in underdeveloped nations. Some counterfeit goods are actually have high-quality imitations that are more expensive and highly simulated are poor quality which can identify with a only little observation. Please be aware of the differences between counterfeit goods and genuine goods. Although there are many counterfeit goods on the market, they can be distinguished by accumulating certain experience and relevant knowledge.

The important thing is the place of purchase.

Use LV as a demonstration. It is important to keep in mind where to buy counterfeit goods because there are numerous sales channels for them. Naturally, there is no issue if you purchase from a specialty shop, but if you purchase goods from an overseas shop that is selling them for less, you will lose money and run the risk of receiving counterfeit goods. Even “high imitation shops” with a focus on selling fake goods abroad exist. They must be fake goods if you purchase them from such establishments. There is a chance of purchasing counterfeit goods when using channels other than specialty shops.

A feature often found in LV copy products, 5 points to distinguish fakes

Serial Number

The production number is a simple identification part as long as you have professional knowledge. The printed serial number on every Louis Vuitton handbag and purse will have an embossed logo to help customers identify them. (However, even small accessories and key rings may not have a serial number even if they are genuine) First, there is only one way to confirm that the serial number is accurate in and of itself. Essentially, the serial number is made up of four numbers and the year and month of manufacture along with two letters from the country of manufacture. You can be sure that the production number can still be used to refer to the location and date, even though the regulations for 4-digit numbers changed from 2006 to 2007.

Look for the quality of the engraving. There are contras between the true and false engraving. Fake products have features such as uneven stamping and hot stamping, shallow edge positions, uneven character depth, and different fonts.

Round metal screw with logo

On leather goods, we frequently see golden round screws bearing the name LOUIS VUITTON. You can consider two points to determine what is true and what is false: 1. Whether or not the screw is crushed and produces stereoscopic effects The logo’s letters are distinct and not crushed. If it’s a fake, it will feel rigid and flat to the touch, similar to buttons on clothing, and the logo letters might not be deep enough to be instantly recognizable.

Louis Vuitton brand stamping

The characteristics of the brand logo that will be imitated are then introduced. The brand logo engraving and embossing will be rough, and the letter edges will be jagged or faded, to start, if it is a lower-level counterfeit. Additionally, the two “O” of the brand stamping deserve special attention. If the product is real, the “O” character is almost exactly a perfect circle (), but if it’s fake, it looks more like a letter with a lanky font.

Understand the shape of snap button

Even though some products don’t have snap buttons, if one does (assuming it’s a card holder), it can also be used as a point of identification. If it’s real, the snap button accessory’s (raised accessory’s) “tip looks like a triangular three-dimensional shape” when viewed from the side. When viewed from the side, the protruding portion of the snap button fitting resembles a circle if it is a fake. On the opposite side, take a look at the snap button’s pit. A genuine snap button will have two long sticks in the middle that are perpendicular to the logo, but a fake will have two long sticks that are horizontal to the direction the logo.

Zipper Hardware

For zippers handbag’s part, the important point to identify is metal zipper buckles.

Fake goods appear most often /n “The coating of metal fittings is not uniform, and the color and gloss are not uniform.” /n “The thickness of the left and right sides of the “V” is the same (the right side of the original V is slightly thinner)” /n “There are dents around the brand logo” /n And so on.

There are more than 20 key points of identification in the “Different Areas of Counterfeit Goods” in addition to these five. Each counterfeit has unique flaws, so some essential characteristics for identification are necessary. However, these five points — “It is easy for nonprofessional or amateurs to find the difference” — are seen as being the most crucial. This distinction is, of course, based on “standards in words,” which also consider the degree of imitation. People without experience find it challenging to distinguish between “how genuine are genuine and how fake are fake.” The five points mentioned here are among the differences that the store’s qualified appraisers will notice.

Lastly, you may not be able to tell the difference unless you hand it to a professional for identification in some cases.

The brand Louis Vuitton has many unique aspects. If it is a relatively low-quality and inferior counterfeit product, it is simple to tell. However, dishonest merchants’ ability to produce counterfeit goods with ever-improving technology makes it challenging for average consumers to tell apart ultra-high counterfeit goods. Many customers are ashamed and deterred from judging others by their bags, but if you are unsure about your bags, we advise you to seek advice from qualified experts.

The experience of touching the genuine products

This time, we discussed the characteristics of LV knockoffs, but products from other brands continue to release updated repetitions of highly counterfeit goods. Since counterfeit goods are produced at a low cost, it is unreasonable to assume that they will all be identical. Giving the handbags to a qualified appraiser for evaluation is safer. The biggest distinction, aside from expertise, is that professional appraisers have had exposure to a large number of authentic goods and are knowledgeable about how to distinguish between them to establish authenticity. If you don’t have as many opportunities to interact with real products, you should read more about LV products in magazines, which is also beneficial.

Additionally, you can visit reputable consignment shops to view additional products and discover more about the allure of LV. LV handbags are frequently very expensive. More exposure to genuine products helps you develop “wisdom eyes” that help you recognize fraud and better comprehend the benefits of genuine goods.
