Louis Vuitton Bag Authentication Guide

How tell if your Louis Vuitton Twist is fake

To tell if your Louis Vuitton Twist bags is fake, examine the “® LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” inscription.

Fake LV Twist bags often display these inscriptions with incorrect thickness.

1. Strap

  • Authentic:
    • Thinner and evenly spaced stitching on the strap.
    • Thin “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text.
  • Fake:
    • Thicker and unevenly spaced stitching on the strap.
    • Thick and deeply engraved “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert LV bag authenticators:

2. Metal plate

Find it on the inside of your Twist.

  • Authentic:
    • Thicker and well-defined “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text with appropriate font-weight.
  • Fake:
    • Thin and narrow text, lacking proper font-weight.

3. Printed label

Still inside the bag, however this is the printed label.

  • Authentic: Thin and narrow text inside the bag.
  • Fake: Thick and oversized text inside the bag, lacking proper font-weight.

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. Buttons

Locate them on the strap/handler of your Twist bag.

  • Authentic: Thin “LOUIS VUITTON ®” text on the button.
  • Fake: Thick and poorly font-weighted “LOUIS VUITTON ®” text on the button.

5. Stitching

  • Authentic: Thick and bulky stitches on the LV logo.
  • Fake: Thin stitches on the LV logo.

6. Hardware

  • Authentic: Consistent font weight on the “LV” text, with equal thickness of the legs.
  • Fake: Inconsistent font weight on the “LV” text, with narrower legs on the left side of the logo.

7. Chainlinks

  • Authentic: Chainlinks are less shiny and reflect less light.
  • Fake: Too shiny and reflect too much light.

Authenticity checklist

If you’re short on time, go through this shortlist:

  1. Inspect Strap Details:
    • Examine the details on the strap of your bag. Counterfeit Louis Vuitton Twist bags often have stitching and text that are the wrong thickness.
  2. Check Metal Plate Text Inside the Bag:
    • Look at the text on the metal plate inside the bag. Fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags typically have text that is too thin.
  3. Examine Interior Leather Inscriptions:
    • Ensure you also check the inscriptions on the interior side of the bag’s leather. Replica LV Twist bags often have improperly font-weighted text in this area.
  4. Verify Button Text:
    • Check the text on the buttons, as fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags often have “LOUIS VUITTON” text that appears too thick.
  5. Analyze Stitching Near Exterior LV Metal Logo:
    • Examine the stitching near the exterior side’s LV metal logo. Counterfeit Twist Louis Vuitton bags tend to have stitching that appears too thin.
  6. Review “LV” Text on Hardware Details:
    • Briefly review the “LV” text on the hardware details to ensure it has the correct thickness.
  7. Assess Chain Shininess:
    • Have a look at the shininess of the chains. Replica LV Twist bags usually have chainlinks that are overly shiny and reflect too much light.
