How can I go about verifying the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton purse?

I bought one that I thought was legit but someone told me it was not real.

There are always emblems in multiple locations. The inside of the purse is one place to look, the pockets on the inside should have leather stamped emblem. Also look at the craftsmanship of the purse and be honest does it look like it high quailty? If not then you might have a fake.

well you can go on the online site to compare yours to other bags. Some bags have a signature on them look for that.

You can make sure all the words on the label are spelled correctly and compare it to one online. But the best way to check is to take it in to a Louis Vuitton store and ask a representative there. They will be able to tell you for sure.

The best thing to do is look for images of the particular type of bag you bought - see if your bag matches images of the authentic bag. Other important things to check is the stitching, lining, and patches - all should be meticulous, even, and straight, as well as consisten with the images you found.

Look for letter/number codes embossed inside your handbag. See if it is labeled. If you see 'model number' it's a fake. Third, it will say 'French Company of Louis Vuitton'. If you still don't know there are ways to break down the code but just these few steps will help.

the LV logo's should never be "cut off". All the LV letters should be centered on the bag, and should never go either outside or above the handles. and once again, they should never be cut in half for another side of the bag

To verify the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton purse, you should look for a label with a date code or serial number, these bags don't have labels marked "Model Number".

I would take it to a Louis Vuitton store and have an associate check the purse and see if it's real or not.
