Take it to a store that sells Louis Vuitton they'll soon tell you no shame in it :thumbsup:

I go to china and buy things and I see really good fakes the only people sometimes are the real suppliers who can tell you,
To be honest Louis Vuitton is pretty crap compared to some of the fakes lol

yes i can upload some once little one is in bed, do you know much about louis vuitton?

Try googling how to spot a fake loui wallet. I expect ur not the only one that has had this query.

Umm I Know A Little Bit But More Hand Bags X

you can sometimes tell a fake specially LV by the straps stitches you know three or four in a row I know it sounds silly but tried and tested on a bag once and purse! ...but there are some v very good copies around your really best to take to a LV shop but your not near one....hmmmm I will have a look at the photo see what I think

I have a couple of Louis Vuitton pieces - from Harrods so I know they are genuine! Does you brother remember if the Wallet came in a box or dust bag? Genuine pieces would have had some sort of quality packaging. The wallet would have had a small piece of card tucked in the credit card section as well with Louis Vuitton Made in France printed on it. In my opinion, these pieces are incredibly well made and last a long, long time. You should really be able to tug it apart and for it to withstand a fair bit of abuse! If it falls apart, I doubt if its genuine! x

just checked one wallet and noticed they say made in spain, this stamp says made in france:roll: deffo fake

Looking at it again i am 99% sure its fake as it has been sewn over the LV logo and on a real one they never sew or sut over the LV x

I am certain this is fake. Not sure which one you are reffering to is Made in Spain?x
