Louis Vuitton has been manufacturing luxury handbags, accessories, clothing, and luggage for over 150 years.  As these luxury items have become increasingly popular, the market has also become flooded with replicas.  There are many key details to pay attention to when purchasing Louis Vuitton handbag to ensure authenticity.  The first clue, which may seem obvious,  is to make certain that Louis Vuitton actually manufactured the style you are looking at.  Certain models of Louis Vuitton handbag were only made in specific colors or sizes. Look out for this! A second thing to pay attention to is the scent.  A replica Louis Vuitton handbag has a much stronger leather smell than an  authentic Louis Vuitton handbag. The only way to understand the way to recognize  an authentic Louis Vuitton handbag by the scent is to purchase a real Louis Vuitton handbag and smell it.  Another thing to look for is the way the monogram is placed on a Louis Vuitton handbag.  The monogram should be symmetrical. The stitching on all Louis Vuitton handbag should be perfectly even. Louis Vuitton handbag command such a high price for a reason.  Most Louis Vuitton handbag are consistent with regards to their stitching. A popular example of this is shown in the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag where the handles meet the bag, there are five stitches going across the top.  Many people also assume that the presence of a date code guarantees authenticity. This is not always the case, however.  If the specific Louis Vuitton handbag that you are looking at should have a date code but does not, this could be a sign that it is counterfeit.  Certain models of Louis Vuitton bags did not have date codes if they were manufactured during certain years. Also pay attention to the location of the date code, an example would be that most Louis Vuitton speedy bags would have the same date code location, however the location of date codes sometimes differs between years.  Louis Vuitton began using date codes in the early 1980s, and they are usually very hard to spot, as they are sometimes hidden in the corners of pockets or in seams.  The leather used in authentic Louis Vuitton bags is not treated, and darkens to a honey color with use.  This is just a small sampling of key things to look for when trying to spot a fake Louis Vuitton handbag.
