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.

An interesting thing happened last week: a girl was asking me about a Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Wallet she had found on eBay while another girl sent me some pictures of her new fake Louis Vuitton wallet, which was the same model.

But it’s not the coincidence that surprised me, it was the fact that after I compared the two wallets, I came to a conclusion that might be surprising to some!
Even though eBay is theoretically selling only authentic handbags, you have to be naïve to believe you can’t find any replica handbags listed there. eBay made it illegal to sell replicas years ago and it also has thousands of employers whose job is to seek our counterfeiters and remove all their products, but this service is not perfect. Replica sellers simply started to put the “authentic” label on their products, which made it even easier for them to sell cheap replica bags for thousands of dollars! I know, it sounds outraging, but these are the undeniable facts!
And if you don’t believe that replicas can actually look better than supposedly authentic bags from eBay, just take a look at these two wallets. I’m not saying the fake Louis Vuitton wallet is perfect, but keep in mind that it’s seven times cheaper than the one listed on eBay! High quality Louis Vuitton replicas are not a myth and many of the Louis Vuitton replica reviews you can find on the blog prove it.

Look at the S-lock engraving, the heat embossed stamp on the back and the golden stamp in the interior. Can you notice how poorly made they are? The letters are uneven, unclear and if you look at the leather stamp, you can see there is no space in between them. Other giveaways: the size of the black leather flap and how the interior stamp and the S-lock closure are positioned. It is clearly a fake and not even a good one!

The fake Louis Vuitton wallet is not the best I’ve seen either. The engraved letters are thicker than they should be and the “PARIS” is too deeply embossed into the leather, so it’s unclear. But even with these flaws, I’d still choose it over the one on eBay!
For your reference, here’s how the engravings on an authentic Louis Vuitton wallet should actually look like:

So girls, if you are planning to buy a bag or any other item from eBay, don’t just assume it’s original. Do your research and compare it with the photos you can find on the official site. I know that buying replica handbags can be risky too, but at least they don’t pretend to be something else. What you see is what you get and if you choose a trustworthy replica site, you’ll get something really good! Don’t allow anyone to fool you, you have the right to get your money’s worth!

Some replica handbags are as wildly popular now as they were years back, when they were just released and fake Neverfull bags are the perfect example here.
Fake Neverfull Bags
Many women really want to have their very own replica LV Neverfull but at the same time they are worried that they will get a cheap-looking bag that has all sorts of flaws.
I understand all of your worries just as much as I understand your love for fake Neverfull bags! There are many guides on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton bags but that doesn’t mean that all the guidelines you can find there are also true. Some of the people who write these guides don’t always know what they are talking about and give misleading information.
One of the oldest myths regarding fake Neverfull bags is that the pattern should always match on either side of the seams. I’m sure you’ve read about this before. Well, guess what, that’s not actually true! And this goes for authentic Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags too!
Please keep in mind that even on authentic LV bags the checkers don’t always line up! So if the squares on the sides don’t have the same size, are not complete or are not aligned on your fake Louis Vuitton bag, don’t panic! That’s not a sign that you’ve come across a cheap knockoff. And this goes for the checkers on both sides of the bottom too.
It’s true that LV is very careful with their Monogram and USUALLY makes it symmetrical from side to side in all Monogram types but not always! So stop listening to absolute rules like “the pattern should always match precisely on either side of the seam”.
And since I know that photos are more trustworthy than words, here are some pictures of authentic LV bags that don’t have a symmetrical pattern:
