The most definitive way to spot a fake Louis Vuitton Keepall is to look at the “LOUIS VUITTON®” text that’s printed all over the bag. Fake LV Keepall bags tend to have their text either really thin or way too thick.
Trying to learn how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton Duffle (Keepall) bag? This is the place to be in.
We’ve sorted everything into just eleven spots to look at when checking the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Keepall.
Let’s see how to check the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Keepall bags.
How to know if your Louis Vuitton Keepall bag is real
To know if your Louis Vuitton Keepall bag is real or fake, check the label inside the bag. Fake duffle bags tend to have thicker inscriptions than those seen on the original LV bags.
Though, this is just a short way to answer your question. Let’s jump into the detailed guide!
1. All-over print
First of all, we are going to analyze the print on the Damier Louis Vuitton Keepall bag, and then, the classic Monogram print.
The fake LV Damier print has the checkerboard squares looking wider than they have to look.
Then, the fake LV Damier Keepall print has the boxes in which it is printed the “Louis Vuitton” text is less visible and defined than the text on the legit Keepall.
Now, let’s move on to the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram printed Keepall bag.
The flower inside the filled circle (highlighted on the left side of the images) is too big on the fake LV duffle bag.
This is visible if you look at the edges o the circle.
The flowers without the circle are, again, too big and too thick on the fake LV Monogram bags.
The fake Louis Vuitton Keepall has the “LV” print crooked and not positioned straight as with the other elements on the print. Meanwhile, the legit bag is exactly the opposite.
2. Strap stitching
The fake bag doesn’t have dense stitches.
The fake Louis Vuitton duffle bag’s stitches are also wavy — they’re not straight enough.
3. Leather quality
The fake Louis Vuitton Keepall bag looks like it has its leather less natural as it seems like another whole material.
The authentic Louis Vuitton bag uses better and more natural leather than fake LV manufacturers.
4. Edge fabric
The fake bag has a thicker and more solid edge compared to the real one.
Most of the time, the authentic Louis Vuitton Keepall has the edge looking thinner than the fake.
The authentic bag must have a subtle leather edge.
5. Strap inscriptions
In the fake bag’s “®” character, the circle is too big and too thick.
In the “LOUIS VUITTON” text, the letters “L” and “N” are too thick on the fake bag.
The “made in France” text has the letter “m thicker and bigger than the real one.
6. Pointy label
The stitching from the top of the badge looks much deeper and fits into the badge itself on the fake bag.
Besides, the stitching on the fake Louis Vuitton bag comes too close to the “®” character.
The “LOUIS VUITTON” and the “PARIS” words are too wide and stretched out on the fake Keepall duffle bag.
7. Size inscription
The fake Louis Vuitton bags’ size number is not centred in the middle of the leather part.
On the other hand, the authentic Louis Vuitton Keepall bags have the size number centred in the middle of the leather part.
It is time for us to teach you how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton Keepall bag by looking at the buttons too.
The fake Louis Vuitton bag’s button is less deep into the leather tab, and the authentic button fits deeper inside.
The fake bag has the “LV” inscription looking thinner than the real one.
The fake bag’s “LV” text is also placed too close to the empty gap above.
The authentic print is a bit further from that hole.
10. Serial number appearance
The fake Louis Vuitton Keepall bag serial number seems to use a different font for the number “1”.
This is because the stick of the “1” is too short on the fake bag.
Also, the visibility of the fake Louis Vuitton Keepall serial number is worse, and the authentic serial number is more opaque.
The fake Louis Vuitton scan tells you nothing about it and they have no information for your item.

Keep in mind that there can be fake bags with authentic product numbers, and that is why should check the rest of the steps on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Keepall bags.
