We have arranged this article in an easy way to read and understand the flaws in the fake YSL Loulou bags in just 7 simple spots to verify.

In this real vs fake YSL Loulou bag legit check guide (Real Vs Fake YSL Loulou), we have linked images with the comparison of the fake vs real YSL bags in order for you to understand the flaws on the fake YSL bags easier.

Without any further ado, let’s jump straight into the fake vs real YSL Loulou legit check guide.

How to spot fake YSL Loulou bags

Indeed, we have linked seven spots to look at in order to spot the fake YSL Loulou bags, but there is one factor that we always look at first because it is the best way to spot the fake YSL bags.

In order to spot fake YSL Loulou bags, the best place to verify first on the bag is the inner “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” tag, because the replica manufacturers never manage to print this text in the right manner, due to the font-weight flaws.

Step 1: Fake vs real YSL Loulou bag inner tag

As we said previously, we consider the inner tag being one of the most reliable signs of a fake YSL Loulou bag.

First of all, let’s have a quick look at the YSL Loulou fake vs real images in order to give you a better visual of this step on how to spot fake YSL bags.

In the fake vs real YSL Loulou image above, we have pointed out the fact that, on the fake Yves Saint Laurent bag, the “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” print appears to be a lot thinner than the print on the legit bag.

In fact, the authentic Yves Saint Laurent bag has its “SAINT LAURENT PAIRS” print looking a lot thicker than fake bag’s text, and you will never see an authentic bag with the text as thin as the one in the fake example above.

Step 2: Check the YSL metal logo on the front side of the Loulou bag

As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake YSL Loulou bags, we are going to analyze the front metal “YSL” logo.

As you can see in the YSL Loulou real vs fake image above, we have pointed out the fact that the gaps in the metal areas of where the letter “Y” merges with the letter “S” appear to be a lot deeper and textured on the fake Loulou bag.

On the legit Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag, you can see how the gaps where the letters “Y” and “S” combine are less deep than the gaps on the fake YSL bag.

Then, have pointed out the fact that the top and the bottom rounded corners of the letter “S” appears to be less sharp than they have to be.

On the other hand, the authentic Yves Saint Laurent’s top and bottom corners of the letter “S” are less curvy and rounded than the corner of the fake YSL Loulou’s letter “S” corners.

Lastly for the “YSL” front print, you can see how the vertical leg of the letter “L” is really thin on the fake YSL Loulou bag, while on the authentic YSL bag, the bottom leg of the letter “L” appears to be thicker.

Step 3: Real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag side printing

As for the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bags, we are going to inspect the side “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” printing, which is similar to the first step of this guide.

As you can see in the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag image above, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake YSL bag, the side printing appears to be a lot thinner than it has to be.

On the authentic YSL bag, you can see how the “SAINT LAURENT PAIRS” text is a lot thicker than the text on the fake bag, which is also smaller than the authentic text.

Step 4: Inspect the side dent of the YSL bag

Now we are going to move on the side of the YSL Loulou bag, and we are going to analyze the depth of the indentation on the real vs fake YSL Loulou bags.

In the fake vs real YSL Loulou bag image above, we have pointed out that on the fake Yves Saint Laurent bag the depth of the indentation is a lot smaller than the depth of the legit bag.

In fact, the authentic Yves Saint Laurent bag has its indentation looking a lot deeper than the fake bag’s.

Step 5: Look at the pattern of the bag on the rear side of it

Flipping the Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag to its rear side, you have to analyze the pattern of the stitching on your bag in order to see if it is a real or fake YSL bag.

In the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag image above, you can see how the depth of the stitches is smaller than the depth of the legit stitches (the same flaw as from the depth on the side of the fake YSL bag).

This means that the fake Yves Saint Laurent bags usually have their stitching on the rear side of the bag looking less defined and fit into the bag itself than the authentic bag’s pattern of stitches.

Step 6: Verify the bottom material on the YSL bag

As for the sixth step of the guide on how to check fake YSL bags, we are going to analyze the material used on the bottom side of the real vs fake YSL Loulou bags.

As you can see in the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag images above, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake bag, the material used for the bottom area of the bag is different than the one used on the authentic bag.

In fact, the authentic YSL Loulou bag uses correct and authentic leather, while the fake bag uses a fake leather material that looks more textured than the authentic YSL Loulou bag’s bottom side material.

Step 7: Fake vs real YSL Loulou carbines

As for the seventh step of the guide on how to spot the fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bags, we are going t analyze the “SAINT LAURENT” print on the metal carbines.

In the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Loulou bag images above, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake YSL’s carbines, the “SAINT LAURENT” text appears to be printed deeper than the legit “SAINT LAURENT” text.

So, the authentic YSL bag’s “SAINT LAURENT” text printed on the carbines is less deep than the text printed on the fake YSL bag.
