How to tell if a Louis Vuitton Pochette is real or fake
You can tell if a Louis Vuitton Pochette is real or fake by checking the “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” label inside the bag. A fake example always has thicker stitches and letters compared to the original.
Let’s check it out!
1. Interior label
The fake bag has its stitching looking too short and too thick.
The fake bag has its text fit too deep into the label, therefore having its text too thick.
The registered trademark “®” symbol and the “made in France” inscriptions make it easiest to spot this issue.
2. Exterior label text
The fake bag has its “®” symbol looking too thick.
The fake “®” symbol is also placed a little bit too close to the “LOUIS VUITTON” text below.
The fake bag has its “LOUIS VUITTON” inscription looking too thick as well.
On the fake, the letters “O” and “U” in the “LOUIS” text have too little space between them.
The “VUITTON” print is also too thick and with too little space between the letters.
The “PARIS” text on the fake bag has its first two letters too thick. The last two are too thin.
Talking about the authentic Louis Vuitton Pochette bag, you can see how all of its words have their words at the same font weight, and also the kerning between the letters.
3. Exterior label stitching
Proceeding to the third method on how to authenticate Louis Vuitton Pochette Multi Accessories, we will have a look at the real vs fake LV Pochette bags for the stitching at the top of the exterior label.

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. Coin purse text
The letters in all of the lines of text are too thin, as they don’t have perfectly curved and perfectly straight-shaped sticks to craft the letters.
The letter “O” in the “LOUIS” text is too thick when compared to the authentic word’s letter.
5. Coin purse stitching
The fake threads are crooked. They’re not placed straight.
The fake bag has smaller, boxier, and thicker stitches.
On the other hand, the legitimate Louis Vuitton Pochette bag has its stitches looking longer and thinner than the ones found on the replica bag.
The replica bag has its text on the belt looking really thin and also too boxy, as it is too narrow.
On the other hand, the authentic bag has its strap’s “LOUIS VUITTON” text looking thicker and wider than the fake bag’s text.
The fake bag’s keychain has its inscriptions looking too thin, as they fit too little deep into the metal.
As for the legitimate Louis Vuitton bag, you can notice how its inscriptions are thicker since they fit deeper into the metal.
The fake bag has its chains looking too shiny.
On the other hand, the authentic LV Multi Pochette bag has its chains less shiny.
The authentic chain reflect less light than the fake chains.
Now, let’s have a look at another real vs fake Louis Vuitton Pochette bag image with the chains so as to properly see the differences.
The fake bag has its chains looking too shiny.
The authentic chains are less shiny and reflect less light.
9. Coin purse shape
The fake bag has an overall shape looking narrower than the authentic bag’s shape.
The authentic Louis Vuitton Pochette coin purse has its shape looks “fatter” and bigger than the fake bag’s shape.
10. Pochette shape
The fake bag is folded, for a bit, and the difference between it and the authentic bag is actually in the materials.
The authentic bag uses quality leather which wouldn’t get into that narrow shape only if the bag would be forced to be folded that much.
Fake bags usually have worse materials in order to be crafted.
Such flaws as easy folding can occur in most cases of replica bags.
The flowers and the “LV” classic logo on the fake bag are improperly shaped.
The flowers and the “LV” classic logo are too thin and small when compared to the authentic pieces’ details, which are thicker and bigger.
Shortlist: How to tell a fake Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette
Inspect the interior label of the bag, paying attention to text and stitching alignment. Fake bags often have improperly weighted text and stitching.
Verify the exterior label for proper font weighting, kerning, and positioning of the text, as replica LV Pochette bags tend to display these inaccuracies.
Examine the top stitching on the outer label; genuine Louis Vuitton bags usually have well-positioned and appropriately sized stitching, unlike fake bags.
Analyze the inscriptions inside the coin purse, looking for thin and poorly kerned text, which is a common trait of fake bags.
Check the stitching on the coin purse, comparing it to genuine bags. Fake bags often have smaller, boxy, and thicker stitching.
Briefly review the text on the strap; authentic bags generally feature a bold and adequately spaced “LOUIS VUITTON” text, unlike thinner and narrower text found on fakes.
Inspect the keychain engravings, as replica bags tend to display thin and inadequate text on hardware details.
Examine the hardware details for shine; fake bags often have overly shiny hardware compared to the more subtle shine of genuine bags.
Verify the shape of the coin purse from the side; replicas may have a narrower overall shape compared to authentic bags.
Check the bottom side of the bag for creasing and folding issues caused by subpar materials, a common problem with fake bags.
Assess the size and thickness of the Monogram print; replicas frequently feature smaller and thinner elements compared to authentic items.
