Trying to learn how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags? You don’t want to get scammed with a fake LV Metis bag?

Just by reading our fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bag authentication guide, you are going to easily know what to look for in order to determine whether you hold a fake or a real LV Metis bag.

Within this guide, you are going to find a set of listed tells with the reference authentic vs replica Louis Vuitton Metis bags.

These images with the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bags will help you visualise the flaws on teh fake bags, as well as how the details should look like on the genuine items.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags is to look at the square label inside the bag, as well as at the strap’s inscription, as the replica LV Metis bags never have their text printed as it should be, since there are always thickness flaws for the characters, and the authentic LV Metis bags are always flawless thanks to their on-point attention to detail.

How to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags

Step 1: Real vs fake Louis Vuitton Metis bag interior label

We are going to start the real vs fake Louis Vuitton Metis bag authentication guide by looking at the inscriptions on the interior side’s square label.

Just as how we’ve previously mentioned, we consider this as the best way to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags, since the fake pieces never have their text correct font-weighted.

With this being said, et’s quickly check the promised fake vs authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag image below, and after that, we are going to explain what happens in this image.

As you can see from the replica vs authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag comparison image above, the counterfeit bag has its text and stitching at the wrong thickness.

Starting with the stitching, you cans see how the threads on all sides of the label at way thicker and bulkier than the authentic bag’s thinner stitches.

Looking at the text, we have pointed out how all of the lines of text on the replica Louis Vuitton Metis bag are too thick.

In fact, this flaw occurs on the fake LV Metis bag because the “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS / made in” was fit too deep inside the bag, and as a consequence, the characters look too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag has its characters thinner, as they were fit less deep inside the leather, unlike the fake bag’s thicker text.

Also, please bear in mind that the country of manufacturing the bag doesn’t affect the thickness of the text on teh label.

So, whether your bag’s interior labels state that it was made in France, Italy, Spain or other countries, the thickness of the characters should be just like the one in the authentic example above.

Of course, little variations (but very little) should occur from an authentic bag to another, but since Louis Vuitton cares a lot about the quality of their items, the text should be very, very close to the one in the legitimate LV Metis bag image above.

Step 2: Check the text engraved at the top of the strap of your Louis Vuitton Metis bag

For the second way on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags, we are now going to check the text engraved at the top of the two bags’ straps.

Yet again, we are facing the same inscription from the previous step, since it is the label that Louis Vuitton links on pretty much all sides of the bag.

And that’s a good thing for us as well, because this is another very reliable way to tell whether you have a replica or authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag.

In the image with the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis straps above, we have pointed out how the details on the fake LV bag are very different from the ones on the authentic item.

In fact, starting with the text, you can observe how the fake Louis Vuitton bag’s three lines of text are way thinner than the ones on the authentic bag’s strap, which are thicker and more defined.

Not only that, but the text on the fake Louis Vuitton Metis bag also seems to be stretched out, as it is too tall on teh afke bag.

On the other hand, the authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag’s text is looking boxier, as it is smaller than the fake bag’s text.

As for the stitching lines at the top and at the bottom of the tab, you can observe how the fake LV Metis bag has its stitches too small and thick, and how the authentic bag has its stitches thinner and longer.

But, for more about the stitching, we are going to look at the next step, as we’ve covered this separately on both the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bags.

Step 3: Inspect the stitching on the strap of your Louis Vuitton Metis bag

Just as how we’ve previously said it, we are now going to check the fake vs real LV Metis bags for their stitching on the straps.

Precisely, we are going to look at the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bags for their stitches on the strap and on the edges.

In the picture with the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bags above, we have pointed out how the replica LV bag has its stitching looking way thinner than the stitching found on the genuine bag.

This flaw can be observed both in the straight lines of stitching, as well as on the rightmost side of the picture, where the stitches are curvy.

Looking at the authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bag, you can observe how its stitches are thicker and more defined.

Step 4: Authenticate the buckle on the exterior side of your Louis Vuitton Metis bag

Proceeding to the fourth way on how to see whether you have a real or replica Louis Vuitton Metis bag, we will quickly check the buckle on the exterior side of the bag.

More exact, we are going to look at the small inscriptions found on the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bags, on the buckles.

real vs fake lv metis

As you can see from teh fake vs real Louis Vuitton picture above, the fake bag’s inscriptions are quite flawed – both the one at teh top and the one in the bottom side of the image.

Starting with the “LV” logo in the circle at the top of the bag, you can see how the fake LV Metis item has its logo and the circle too thin.

On the other hand, the genuine Louis Vuitton Metis bag’s “LV” encircled logo is thicker and more visible than the fake bag’s logo.

Moving a bit lower, we have the classic “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS” text, which is too thick on the fake bag, as it was fit too deep into the metal, and on the authentic bag, the text is thinner because it was fit less deep inside the metal buckle.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Verify the patch which holds the button on your Louis Vuitton Metis

As for the fifth way on how to spot replica Louis Vuitton Metis bags, we are now going to check the “LOUIS VUITTON” text engraved on the button, as well as the stitching on the patch with the button

fake vs real lv metis

In the image with teh fake vs authentic Louis Vuitton Metis bags above, we have pointed out how the fake LV bag’s text is at the wrong thickness.

In fact, the replica Louis Vuitton Metis bag’s “LOUIS VUITTON” text is too big, too thick, and generally too bulky when compared to teh real deal. Speaking of which, the authentic bag’s text is visibly smaller and thinner.

Then, as for the stitching on the patch, you can observe how the fake Louis Vuitton Metis bag’s threads are a little bit thicker than teh ones seen on the authentic bag, which are a tad bit thinner.

Step 6: Examine the zipper of your Louis Vuitton Metis bag

Moving forward to the sixth way on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Metis bags, we are now going to check the zippers on the fake vs real LV Metis items.

The zipper on the Louis Vuitton Metis bag presents the “LOUIS VUITTON” inscription which we are going to have a close look at.

As you can see from the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Metis bag image above, the fake LV bag’s “LOUIS VUITTON” text looks too thin.

On the other hand, the genuine Louis Vuitton Metis bag’s “LOUIS VUITTON” text engraved on the zipper is thicker and more massive than the fake bag’s text.
