Louis Vuitton, founded in 1854 and most famous for its treated canvas and monogram designs, is one of the high-end retailers who have thrived in the luxury industry the longest to date. But when greatness and exclusivity induce demand, we all know what follows is imitation.
LV has been known to be one of the most copied brands, and cheap counterfeits flood the second-hand market. Getting to know the brand and ensuring its authenticity through a site like www.realauthentication.com is the best way to protect yourself from falling prey to fraud.
Fortunately, there are a few giveaways that you can look out for when shopping for Louis Vuitton from a second-hand store, an online shop, or a friend.
Starting at the very basics, when shopping for a real luxury item, the first thing you should be able to clearly notice is the quality of the item; it should look perfect, detailed, proportionate, and in its original intended shape.
Look for patterns in your item; the monograms, the stitching, and the details should look uniform and high quality. Look out for cheap yellow thread in the seam, stitching counts.
Go to a local retailer and feel what the real material should feel like, what the actual hardware looks like, and what the overall proportion of the item is. That way you can start recognizing what might be “off” when shopping second hand.
