How to authenticate: Louis Vuitton part 3


Hey everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s post is a short one but don’t let size deceive you as today’s blog may be the difference between you purchasing a replica item and an authentic item!

Glazing, so commonly overlooked, and SO commonly done incorrectly by ย the people who make replicas! Here are some quick things to look out for with glazing

What to look out for:

Louis Vuitton glazing is NEVER sloppily done under any circumstances! If it looks like a 4-year-old painted it then please don’t buy the item unless you are completely sure that it is authentic but i wouldn’t recommend it ๐Ÿ™‚

sloppy glazing like this is not ever seen on a real purchase…

Louis Vuitton glazing changes colour darkens with use, there is nothing worse than a fake bag with a heavy patina and glazing bright enough to stop traffic! Another thing I’ve noticed that seems to be prominent on fakes is that they often have the wrong coloured glazing, look below at the first photo and you will see a bag that is currently selling on eBay as an ‘authentic’ speedy, to someone who doesn’t know about the glazing may not pick up that on Damier Ebene prints the glazing is a chocolate-brown on authentic pieces such as the one pictured in the second photo. Please ladies and gentlemen, make sure you at least have a rough idea what the bag you are thinking of purchasing looks like so you don’t end up with an eye sore of a bag like the first bag.

Bonus fact:

Speedy bags do NOT have these plaques on the front of them, ever, if you see this it is not authentic.


the pink glazing in this bag just doesn’t look right… and it isn’t
