How To Spot A Fake Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag. The most searched and sold Louis Vuitton bag is Louis Vuitton Neverfull. It’s so adorable that thousands of replicas were created to satisfy people who can’t afford the price of the original one. To spot the difference between them, today I’m talking about things you need to know before buying a Louis Vuitton bag, because a lot of people have bought replicas instead of an authentic one.
A very important thing about this bag is the symmetry of its monogram pattern. It always start and finishes with the same symbol—following a mirror-like image, regardless of the position of the area. To make it easier I’ll demonstrate it with the picture below and you can easily notice the difference between the real and the fake. Lets take a look.
2. The Stitching
Louis Vuitton is very careful when it comes to the stitching, normally having seven or eight stitches per inch. Fake ones usually don’t respect this measuring element. I took photos of my real authentic bag and later to the fake one.
3. The Inside Design
There are a lot of replicas and so will be their differences with the authentic bag. A very important thing and easily notable is the inside part of the bag. When the base or the bottom of the bag is single colored its ok, but if it has stripes or LV logos in the base than it is a fake. Lets check the photos.
4. The Letters Test
When we have to find the difference between letters, we find it very difficult to notice the fake bag. Why? Because you have no idea how similar are becoming the replicas nowadays. First you have to check the LO letters and after that proceed T or TT. First you have to check if the L letter is half of the O letter. Also check if the letters TT are sticky, because they shouldn’t be touching each other, shouldn’t be attached like sharing the letter T’s top line. In the picture below I’m demonstrating the authentic bag.
5. The Code
Every Louis Vuitton Bag has its own code. Those produced starting the 1990s have codes that consist of two letters followed by four numbers—representing the place and year of production. If a Louis Vuitton handbag is made in the USA it will have a code that can start with either FC, LA, FH, SD, or OS. If it is made in Spain (like mine, the one I’ll show you in the picture) starts with CA,LM, LO, LW, and LB.
6. The Dust Bag
Another thing I wanna talk about spotting a fake LV Neverfull bag is the dust bag. There are lots of replicas dust bag and every single one has its differences from the authentic bag but Im showing you one of them. So if you see it, don’t buy it. So take a look at the authentic one and compare it with any other dust bag you can see. The color, the size, the material and the writting is important to spot the fake.

7. The Invoice
If you decide to buy a Louis Vuitton bag, it’s very important to check the invoice and the authenticity document if they give you one, cause it proves the bag authenticity. Be careful, Louis Vuitton bags does not have authenticity card.
Be careful of fake documents.

8. The Hardware
If you are really observant at hardware than you can definitely spot the replica bag.
I’ll show you some pictures in which you have to be very careful at the shape (the real one is like a D letter), color (is shinny and a gold) and size of the hardware. Lets take a look.

10. The Inside Pocket
We talked for a lot of details about the differences in the replica and authentic bag, but we can’t let aside a very important difference which is the inside pocket of the bag and its details. In the authentic LV Neverfull the pocket has a full length from edge to edge, while in some replicas the inside pocket is half the size of the bag.
Some bad replicas have completely different kinds of colors, shapes, materials and size so it’s not hard for you to notice that it’s not an authentic bag. Here is an example.
