Our team has another professional authentication guide for you: Burberry Lavenby Tote. By reading this guide, you’ll be able to spot any fake tote.

How to Spot FAKE Burberry Totes

To quickly identify fake Burberry totes, focus on examining the leather label that reads “Burberry London England”. Fakes bags often exhibit imperfections in these details.

1. Hang tag

  • Authentic Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    1. Features thicker stitching around the patch edges.
    2. “BURBERRY” text has thicker letters and less space between them.
    3. “London England” text is thicker and stamped deeper into the fabric.
  • Fake Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    1. Displays thinner stitching around the patch edges.
    2. “BURBERRY” text is too thin and has excessive space between letters.
    3. “London England” text is thinner and not stamped as deeply into the material.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert Burberry authenticators take a look at your bag:

2. Exterior logo

  • Authentic Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Has a “BURBERRY” text that is finer and thinner.
    • The “London England” text is thicker and deeply stamped into the leather.
  • Fake Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Exhibits a “BURBERRY” text that is too thick.
    • The “London England” text is too thin and not deeply stamped into the material.

3. Handler

  • Authentic Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Features bulkier and denser stitching around the patch, with longer, thicker, and bigger stitches.
  • Fake Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Has stitches that are too tiny—being too short and too thin, appearing less prominent than those on the authentic bag.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

4. Interior bottom

  • Authentic Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Features “MADE IN ITALY” text that is thicker, smaller, and bulkier.
    • The stitching below the text utilizes threads that are thicker and shorter.
  • Fake Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Displays too thin and narrow letters in the “MADE IN ITALY” text.
    • Has stitching beneath the text that uses threads which are too thin and too long.

5. Side

  • Authentic Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Ensures equal distance from the stitching lines to the dent on both the left and right sides.
    • Uses threads that are thicker and more defined for stitching.
  • Fake Burberry Lavenby Bag:
    • Displays uneven stitching lines – the left is too far from the dent compared to the right.
    • Incorporates stitches that are too thin and lack definition.

Authenticity checklist

Short on time? Make sure you go through this list:

  1. Inspect the leather patch for text and stitching thickness.
  2. Examine the exterior text for correct font-weight.
  3. Check the interior text for proper thickness.
  4. Verify the “MADE IN ITALY” text for accurate thickness.
  5. Examine the stitching on the profile side for correct positioning and thickness of threads.

These indicators can help you determine if your bag is authentic or fake.
