louis vuitton bag original vs fake

I recently experienced something extraordinary when it comes to Louis Vuitton bags – the comparison between a genuine and a fake. Holy smokes – how can they be so similar?! Well, need to tell you this story so you can be careful as well.

I still remember the moment when I saw the genuine louis vuitton outlet Vuitton bag on the store shelf for the first time. Gosh, it was love at first sight. I wanted it so bad but I was hesitating if I should buy it or not – as it was relatively expensive. I asked a few friends for opinions and everyone was like – “come on, you must buy it! You deserve it as a reward.”

Of course, I was a little bit scared that maybe it is not the real thing. After some digging, I realized that I can be sure it being genuine when I check its logo, the stitches, the handles, the material, the leather, the shape, etc. So great to know that – especially when it comes to expensive items like this.

And then, I was wondering – what is the price tag for the fake one? To be honest, I thought it to be ridiculously cheap. I almost felt sorry for the people who could be (un)lucky enough to stumble upon it. But no, it was not the case – the fake version of the bag was pretty good (or better to say – incredibly close) to the genuine one. Only a few nuances made the difference yet the innocent eyes wouldn’t be able to see it.

This was too much for me. I mean, how come the fake is identical to the original one?! I thought – perhaps some of the factories can really excel in their work but this is just too good to be true. Maybe the original one I’ve purchased was fake itself? No way – impossible, right? Of course, I did my research and even asked a few more friends for directions- some even told me the method to identify a real Louis Vuitton from a fake one.

Long story short – the conclusion of this story is that you should always pay attention when buying genuine Louis Vuitton replica bags. Even if certain aspects don’t add up in comparison to the original, you should always double check. It is common knowledge that fake versions are so alike that it can be tricky to identify them. Therefore, beware and think twice.

Moving forward, I want to share a few tips on how to avoid buying a fake LV bag. Firstly, always purchase from trusted and well-known official stores. Looking up the reviews online from your particular store of choice can help you identify if their products are genuine. Further, you should always double-check the bag logo, the zippers, the shape of it, the price tag, and material, etc. And lastly – believe your instinct. If something doesn’t add up then most likely the product is fake.
