How to tell if a Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote is fake or real
You can tell if a Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote is real or fake by checking the interior label. Thick text always indicates a fake bag, while thin inscriptions indicate a genuine bag.
Indeed, we have linked 11 spots to look at in order to spot the fake LV Neverfull bags, but there is one factor that we always look at first because it is the best way to spot the fake LV bags: the interior label.
1. Interior label
In the real vs fake Louis Vuitton Nerverfull image above:
The fake bags have the “LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS / made in France” text looking too thin.
Most visible on the letter “N” in the “VUITTON” print — the letter is crooked at the bottom.
The letter “m” in the word “made, is too thick on the fake Neverfull Tote.
Text aside, the fake bag’s stitching is too thin.
2. Interior lining
This lining which we are talking about is the big rectangle with the printed Louis Vuitton and a few more prints on the interior side of the bag.
You’ll find this right below the previously-analysed label.
The fake Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag has the letter “S” in the “LOUIS” print too long and a bit wide/big at the bottom side.
The fake Louis Vuitton bag’s letters “O” and “N” in the “VUITTON” print are too far from each other.
Note how all the characters on the real bag have the same thickness and spacing in-between.
3. Handler base
In the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Neverfull image above:
The fake bag has thinner stitching all over the handler’s base.
The stitching is also overlapping on the fake bag.
The threads on the fake handler are too thick, while the real ones are thinner.
4. All-over pattern
For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags, we are going to check the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags for the pattern all around the bags on both the classic Monogram and the Damier printings.
In the real vs fake Louis Vuitton Neverfull Monogram bag image above:
