Help Authenticating a Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Messenger Bag

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello. Can you guys take a look at this picture and let me know if this is a real LV Messenger Bag or replica? The guy sent these pictures to me after asking him if it is real or not on Ebay. He said he does not know and sent these pictures to me to determine. Does anybody have this bag? Unfortunately that's all the pictures he sent. Thanks.

I refuse to buy designer items from ebay. Avoid if you are concerned about authenticity. A tiny percentage is actually authentic.

Fake. Why would you even want to buy that bag is beyond me.

if he's "not sure"... sounds like a cover my ass sort of insurance policy. People who own the real deal aren't "not sure"... Anyway though, why would you care all that much. If you just want it for the pattern or whatever then buy it on the cheap and throw it out when it inevitably falls apart. If you want what the brand name is supposed to imply, without all the fake glitz patterns, then just go buy the real thing in a subtle pattern... personal preference I geuss. Anyway. Nothing in life is free... if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

On the LV Damier Graphite line the brass is always silver. Apparently it is not on your picture and it should look like this.

I would say i am 99,99% sure it is a fake.

i completely agree with the first part of this. a reputable reseller would be able to confidently tell you the provenance of their item, and be able to produce receipts, cards, certification, control numbers, and a dizzying array of facts to authenticate the item they are selling. if they cannot do that, then move on. my wife has both bought and sold purses for her collection on eBay, and the detail that is available on the Web to authenticate these items is both plentiful and readily available. as for the second part, if you decide to purchase and use a fake item, just be aware that there are lots of people out there that can spot your fake from twenty paces and will ridicule you for it, if you care about that sort of thing. probably behind your back, if that gives any comfort
