How To Spot Good Replica Louis Vuitton Handbags Out And About

Louis Vuitton

There are all kinds of Louis Vuitton handbags out there. Some are the real deal, some are crappy fakes, and some are pitch perfect replicas. If you want to look great, you’ve got to know the difference between a good and a bad fake.

Replica Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag

The first step to know on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags is knowing what you’re looking for. I hope this guide will help you make the right decisions and buy wonderful Louis Vuitton bag. Here is what you need to know:

Like I said, the first thing to do is:

•Picking a style that you like to check out
•Finding that style on the Louis Vuitton site and checking out the specs
•Knowing the features that are particular to that bag
•Looking at some high resolution shots both on the site and of celebrities wearing the bag you want (this will give you a sense as to how these bags look when worn)

But, beyond looking at the specs and pics that the official Louis Vuitton site provides you with, you’ve got to know a little about Louis Vuitton bags in general. Louis Vuitton is the most popular maker of luxury handbags in the world and with good reason – their bags are marvels of fashion and design. The canvas, leather, hardware, and special features of a Louis Vuitton bag are unique and particular. You simply need to know a thing or two about LV so that you can avoid getting duped by inaccurate fake Louis Vuitton bags.

Knowing the Features Particular to Louis Vuitton Handbags

Louis Vuitton Canvas

Some people mistakenly believe that Louis Vuitton is all about leather. Maybe this is because leather is supposedly a fancier material. But, the fact is, Louis Vuitton made its name with amazing canvas prints. Starting with the Damier canvas in 1888, Louis Vuitton has continued to unveil gorgeous canvas print handbags including the ubiquitous classic Monogram and its many variations.

Real Louis Vuitton canvas is sturdy, waterproof, and scratch resistant. The material was created for luggage, so it is built to last. Good replica Louis Vuitton canvas will be heavy, but not stiff. Make sure to check that the monogram logo is properly replicated. Look closely at the photos that the replica site provides – do they match up the photos of the original bag?

Make sure that the canvas has the proper thickness (not flimsy, not too stiff), that the color matches that of the original, that all patters match up and that all the markings are not only correct but are accurately rendered.

Leather Trim

So, Louis Vuitton may have made their mark in canvas, but they are no slouch when it comes to leather. Louis Vuitton handbags usually feature high quality leather trim. Excellent quality leather (the kind found in real LV bags) will grow richer, darker, and suppler with time. You can tell real Louis Vuitton bags because the leather becomes honeyed with time.

When checking the leather trim on fake Louis Vuitton bags, make sure to look at:
• The coloring (real bags have a beige color at first that slowly becomes like honey)
• The seams (should be made with strong yellow thread)

Hardware

Louis Vuitton handbags feature gold toned brass hardware; not silver. A good replica will feature this same material, and a bad one will often have cheap, light hardware. It’s important that you make sure the hardware of your replica handbag is heavy – otherwise it may fall apart (or fall off!) with every day wear.
• Make sure that the material is up to standards and is heavy
• Make sure the color matches that of the original
• Check for engravings and make sure they are identical to the original

Special Features

Each Louis Vuitton handbag has its own special features. This is one of the areas where many fake bags are lacking – they can get a decent canvas and put it together fine, but they haven’t paid attention to important details that are unique to individual bags. It’s up to you to know what is particular about your bag of choice and make sure that your replica matches.

Things to look for include:

• Exterior and interior pockets
• Handles and adjustable straps
• Clasps and closures (and whether they have engravings)
• Engravings and logos (on hardware and plaques)
• Extra pockets
• Draw strings, tassels, etc.

Remember not only to check for what is missing on fake Louis Vuitton bags, but also whether there is something on your bag that shouldn’t be there. If you thoroughly check all bags before buying and read this guide on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags, you’re on the right path. This is the only way you will be sure to get the bag you want and that you’ll get something that looks and feels as it should. One of my favorite sites is so you can check if out if you’re looking for a great bag.

There are a lot of replica advice and guides here on the blog. Make sure you read them to find out where to get the best fake Louis Vuitton bags.

Taylor Swift Continues Her Walking Tour of New York with a Prada Bag

Other Brands

Taylor Swift Prada Executive Tote

Our by-the-minute Taylor Swift bag coverage continues this week (of course). If you haven’t been following along, Taylor is now shamelessly baiting New York paps on a daily basis with great bags, shoes and clothes. (OR, she’s just trying to live her life as stylishly as possible, and an army of paps just happen to be following along.) If you know anything about pap life, you probably know that shots of celebs with nice bags or otherwise recognizable clothing sell well, for reasons you can probably guess. Here’s Taylor once again, walking toward or away from activities of an indeterminate nature in New York City, carrying a Prada Executive Tote, which is available in a similar color at Bergdorf Goodman for $2,430.

It seems that everyone’s favorite teen pop-country sensation has finally decided to abandon the whimsical braids and sundresses of yesteryear and embrace garments and accessories with a little more structure and integrity (and much, much higher price tags). We’ve long speculated that Taylor wanted to avoid flaunting high-end products because of her very young fans (unlike her contemporaries Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez), but now it seems all bets are off. There’s a follow-up post to “The Many Bags of Taylor Swift” coming down the pipeline in the very near future, PB readers, but while we all await it with bated breath, tell us: what do you think of Taylor’s style transformation?

Man Bag Monday: Louis Vuitton Président Classeur Briefcase

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton President Classeur Briefcase

I’ve got a Monday morning confession for you guys: I listen to too much Drake. Arguably, anyDrake is “too much Drake,” but I probably listen to too much, even by lenient standards. We all have our crosses to bear. In one song that comes up often on my iPod (“Up All Night,” if you’d like to Google it and then judge me accordingly), rapper Nicki Minaj makes a guest appearance in which she speaks of giving Lil Wayne the “Louis Presidential Briefcase.” If she’s speaking of the Louis Vuitton Président Classeur Briefcase, Ms. Minaj clearly has fine taste.

The Président Classeur is, like a Birkin, a bag that’s really in-your-face about being expensive and made of fine materials without being logo-ridden or otherwise obvious. It’s discreet, in a way, but in other ways, totally not discreet–you can tell it costs a zillion dollars from 20 paces, even if you’re not someone who’s well-versed in luxury goods. It’s the perfect status-symbol accessory for men (unless you count watches, which we don’t, because this is not the place for watches).
