Wondering how to spot fake Supreme x Louis Vuitton Christopher Red backpacks? Afraid of scammers?

Welcome to the only guide you’ll ever need to legit check these backpacks.

Compare your backpack against our real vs fake images to determine whether you have the original or not.

How to tell if your backpack is real or fake

To spot a fake Supreme x Louis Vuitton backpack, check the text on the label stitched inside. Fake manufacturers never manage to get the label right, and the quality of the replica doesn’t compare to the retail item.

Have a look at the image in the first step for further explanation.

1. Interior label

  • The stitching all around the label is too thick on the fake Supreme x LV backpack.
  • The registered trademark “®” symbol at the top is too big and bolded on the fake.
  • The “LOUIS” and “VUITTON” prints are too big and thin on the fake backpack.
  • Also, the “LOUIS VUITTON” text uses a different font from the authentic one.
  • The word “PARIS” is too thick on the fake label.
  • The letter “S” in the “PARIS” text is crooked on the counterfeit item.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Supreme x LV authenticators:

2. Exterior label

  • The stitching at the top is misplaced on the fake Supreme backpack.
    • On the authentic item, the stitching is placed in the centre as the rest of the text below.
  • The same stitching is too thick on the left side, and too thin on the right side.
  • The ® trademark symbol is too thin on the counterfeit backpack’s label.
  • The “LOUIS VUITTON” and “PARIS” prints are too deep into the leather on the fake.

The authentic backpack’s text looks thinner than the text on the replica item’s tab.

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.

3. LV

  • The “LV” text on the replica Supreme backpack is too thin
  • The fake letters are too far away due to the font weight of the text, which is smaller on the fake backpack.
    • The authentic “LV” text is placed in the centre of the stitching tab, while the fake text is misplaced.
  • The horizontal legs of the “L” are to be too thin on the fake Supreme x LV backpack.
  • The bottom right corner of the letter “L” is too thick and long on the fake product.

4. Flap

  • The fake Supreme x LV backpack’s stitching on the pocket is too small.
  • The same stitching is too thin compared to the one on the authentic backpack.

5. Buttons

  • The fake “LOUIS VUITTON” text on the buttons is too small.
  • The same text doesn’t fit deep enough into the metal.

6. Color

  • The fake red is too dark.
  • See how the authentic shade of red is lighter than the counterfeit.

7. Handler

  • The stitching on the handler of the authentic LV Supreme backpack is more defined.
  • The fake stitching isn’t textured and detailed enough.

8. Belt

  • The “Supreme LV” text on the handler looks less defined, textured and visible.

Shortlist: Spot a fake when you’re on the go

  1. Interior Label Inspection: Often, counterfeit Supreme LV backpacks display text with inconsistent font weights. Additionally, the stitching might be too thick or too thin, and may not align properly.
  2. Exterior Tab Text Analysis: On replicas, the lettering is frequently too thick and positioned incorrectly.
  3. “LV” Text Verification: On the front side, counterfeit backpacks often have the “LV” text either too thick or too thin, and it may not be centered on the tab as it should be.
  4. Pocket Stitching Examination: Counterfeit Supreme LV backpacks tend to have finer stitching on the pockets than genuine ones.
  5. Button Examination: On fake backpacks, the “LOUIS VUITTON” inscription on the buttons often appears too small and might not fit well within the metal frame.
  6. Color Verification: Replicas of the Supreme x Louis Vuitton backpacks might exhibit a shade that’s too dark compared to the original.
  7. Handler Inspection: The handle on counterfeit backpacks often feels less textured and lacks the definition seen on authentic ones.
  8. Handler Text Examination: Counterfeit LV x Supreme backpacks usually have less pronounced text on the handler, making it less visible compared to genuine backpacks.
