    How do you tell what's a genuine Louis Vuitton small bag. I was given one as a gift a couple of years ago but as I didn't buy it myself I can't guarantee its genuine.

    as title say, any advice welcomed

    post pics on here, you will soon get your answer

    The date code in the bag is the key...contact Louis Vuitton who will assist...the only way you can tell as fakes are very good now

    yep,there is a market in receipts as well now,so a receipt is no guarantee of authenticity when bought second hand....only Louis Vuitton can give you a 100% correct answer

    No hun. My ex partners parents bought it for me when they went to Paris.
    I've never been into designer handbags etc so I just don't have a clue.
    I've taken some pics I'm just uploading them to photobucket

    Fake they would have given you the box bag and all the other stuff that comes with it etc etc if bought from new Louis vuitton Paris

    photobucket is veeeerrrrry slow! tbh, i don't think the bag was actually new when they gave it to me, always had the feeling that it was second hand

    looks like a fake the stitching and finish on the bag is terrible its doesnt even join up on some bits.

    Genuine LV are immaculate, the patterns match up, the stitching is perfect, they are symetrical in every aspect, no lumps or creases - i cant see the other side but from the looks of the first picture there is some of the logo cut off (top left hand corner of the bag)

    Fake i believe. From the one it's supposed to be it should have six studs, and studs along the strap.

    So the general consensus seems to be that it's fake.

    Thanks to everyone for their help. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas x

    Thanks for that LM, but I doubt that I will ever own a designer handbag in my life! I'm not really into labels and stuff, just not girly enough lol :thumbsup:

    how strange lol, but can absolutely promise you that it wasn't me

    all white MC pieces are done in a raspberry color interior

    Sorry, but I have to agree, it does look fake. The colours seem wrong, theres fraying on the zip, the studs are misligned, stitching is poor and the strap (particularly the metal rings) look poor quality...
