The Louis Vuitton Twist bag is one of the most popular purses that Louis Vuitton ever made – whenever you see the unique “LV” metal logo on this bag, you know it’s a quality product that’s made to last.
As cool as this bag is, it is highly replicated, and we know how it isn’t the best feeling to not know whether the bag that you’re looking at is a real or fake LV Twist.
Moreover, we are here to help you authenticate Louis Vuitton Twist bags, as this guideline will tell you everything there is to remember on legit checking this bag.
The fastest way to tell fake vs real Louis Vuitton Twist bags is the “® LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” inscription. The fake LV Twist bags always present these inscriptions at the wrong thickness. By that, we mean that the fake Louis Vuitton bags tend to have their inscriptions looking or too thin, while the authentic purses have to be flawless and with no such issues.
Let’s start with the very best way to tell fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags: the strap’s inscription. As we’ve said before, we like to believe that this is the very best way to tell fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags.
First things first, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags in the image below, and after that, we’ll talk about the flaws on the fake bag, as well as the counterparts on the real bag.
Well, those are quite a few flaws… Let us talk about each flaw individually!
First of all, the stitching at the top and at the bottom sides of the strap. Looking at the fake bag, you can notice how the threads are too thick and too big.
On the other hand, the real bag’s stitching is thinner and shorter.
Also, the fake bag has its stitches misplaced, as some of the threads (look at those where the hand-emoji pointer is) are placed higher and lower than the rest of the threads.
Looking at the real LV Twist bag’s stitches, you can notice how they are perfectly positioned, as all of the threads are placed in a perfectly straight line.
Then, the “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text has the wrong thickness on the fake Louis Vuitton Twist bag.
In fact, the fake Twist bag’s inscriptions are too thick, as they were fit too deep into the leather of the strap.
As for the genuine Louis Vuitton Twist bag, you can notice how its same inscriptions look thinner and fit less deep into the leather than the fake bag’s text.
Proceeding to the second step on how to tell a fake Louis Vuitton Twist bag, we now have to talk about precisely the same words from the previous step.
Only this time, we are going to move inside the real vs fake LV Twist bags, as we now have to care about the metal plate’s text.
The fake vs real Louis Vuitton Twist bag image above shows you how the fake Twist bag’s inscriptions are wrongly font-weighted.
The replica LV Twist bag’s “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text is too thin, as the “®” symbol and the letters are too narrow and too skinny.
Looking at the real Louis Vuitton bag’s same inscriptions, you can notice how they have their characters way thicker and better defined than the fake ones.
Moving forward to the third method on how to tell real vs fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags, let’s talk about the same inscriptions, once again.
The difference between this step and the previous one is that we’ve previously checked the metal plate’s text, and this time we are going to look at the text printed on the leather.
The authentic vs fake Louis Vuitton Twist bag image above shows you how the fake bag’s text is badly font-weighted (surprisingly or not, this is the flaw on most of the fake bags’ inscriptions).
The fake Twist bag has its inscriptions looking too thick and too big, as they’re way too large when compared to the real ones.
Speaking of which, the authentic Twist Louis Vuitton bag’s text inside the bag looks thinner and narrower than the fake bag’s text.
Proceeding to the fourth way on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags, we are going to talk about the real vs fake LV Twist bags for their buttons.
The buttons which we are going to talk about are those on the straps of the bags.
In the image with the real vs fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags above, we have pointed out how the fake bag’s “LOUIS VUITTON ®” text is badly font-weighted.
In fact, the fake bag has its “LOUIS VUITTON ®” text looking too thick, while the same inscription seen on the real button is thinner.

Going to the fifth method on how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton Twist bag, we now have to focus on the metal LV logo on the outside of the bag.
The LV metal logo is what makes this bag shine, as well as what gives this bag popularity and instant recognition.
The fake vs real Louis Vuitton Twist bag image above shows you how the fake LV logo’s stitches are too thin.
Looking at the real Louis Vuitton Twist bag’s stitches, you can see how they are thicker and bulkier than the stitches seen on the fake Twist bag.
Let’s go to the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake LV Twist bags, as now we need to focus on this tubular-shaped hardware piece that holds the “LV” little inscription.
As always, let’s first look at the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Twist comparison image, and after that, we’ll explain the fake bag’s flaws, as well as the real bag’s correct details.
Looking at this fake vs real Louis Vuitton Twist bag image above, you can see how the fake “LV” text is too thin, as the legs of the letters on the left side of the logo are too narrow.
As for the genuine bag, all of the legs have the same font-weight, which is higher than the fake bag’s thickness for the “LV” text.
It’s time that we go to the seventh way on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags, as we have to focus on the hardware chainlinks.
Most of the fake Louis Vuitton Twist bags have their chains too shiny and reflecting too much light, and looking at the fake example above, you can see how this fact is proven.
On the other hand, the real LV Twist bag has its chainlinks less shiny, as they reflect less light than the fake bag’s chains.
