How to tell if a Louis Vuitton Métis is real
To tell if your Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is real, check if all the letters on the interior label have the same font weight. Fakes usually have specific letters thicker than others.
Let’s see what this looks like!
1. Inteiror label
The threads on all sides of the label at way thicker and bulkier than the authentic.
Al lines of text on the replica Louis Vuitton Metis bag are too thick.
The “® / LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS / made in” fits too deep inside the bag. As a consequence, the characters look too thick.
Helpfulness: The bag’s country of manufacturing doesn’t affect the thickness of the text on the label.
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 one authentic bag to another.
The text should bevery close to the one in the legitimate Pochette above.
