The best authentic & replica bags/handbags galore; reviewing one at a time! Reviews are from replica handbag shoppers around the world and thepursequeen! Replica website reviews with pictures and more!
Louis Vuitton is and always will be one of the most wanted designer brands out there! The Neverfull bag specifically is one of their most famous bags – celebs and fashionistas from all walks of life have shown their love for the bag. I personally love the Neverfull because it is one of the most functional bags in my wardrobe – it is big and fits EVERYTHING! Especially if you go for the bag in its largest size – the GM! This handbag review will compare an authentic Louis Vuitton Neverfull Mimosa bag to a replica version of the same bag. So can you tell off the bat which is fake? Whether your answer is yes or no scroll down below to see if you’re right!
1) Look at the canvas quality of the bag
This is a hard difference to spot between these 2 bags since the canvas quality is on point for the replica, but a bad knockoff will have a plastic-y feel to the canvas material. The canvas refers to the monogrammed brown material used for the body of the bag.
2) Look at the stitching of the bag at the sides & underneath the bag
Once again the replica bag featured in this post is of a very high quality so it is hard to notice a major flaw, but make sure that the side of the bag’s stitching aligns. The shapes on the Monogram Canvas should also align on the sides of the bag. If you spot poor or spotty stitching, or stitching that is very loose quickly then you most likely have a bad fake on your hands. Looking underneath the bag is very important as many replica sellers get lazy when it comes to the bottom of a bag and cut corners on a spot they think most people don’t pay attention to so make sure you peek underneath!
3) Look inside the bag to see the quality of the lining
As mentioned before replica sellers often cut corners on areas they perceive to be less important on a bag such as the interior so make sure to look inside your potential purchase before spending any money! The interior of a Louis Vuitton neverfull is a cotton lining that is sturdy. Make sure to pay attention to the lining print and the pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo is printed. If anything looks off or the logo looks funny you may have a fake on your hands. The interior of the authentic bag in this case has a bit of a cleaner look around the seams of the bottom however other than that the two interiors look virtually identical.
4) Look inside the bag to see the stamping
One final think you can take a look at in order to determine whether your bag is fake or real is to take a look at the stamping on the interior label of the bag (which is on the pocket on the inside). Not only should you inspect the stitching around the label but you should also look at the way the words are stamped. If you see the T’s connect in “VUITTON” or if you see poor stamping quality this may indicate you have a fake. The replica bag pictured above is of a high quality (or it can be considered a superfake) so once again it is hard to spot these issues on that specific bag.
So how did you do? Did you easily figure out which bag was the fake? Well if you haven’t by now it was the one of the right hand side of the screen (the bag with the darker pictures/non-white background). This bag is actually a very good replica (a superfake or counter quality replica) so the tips given in this article don’t necessarily apply, but most replica bags out there are not superfakes so you will be able to easily spot these flaws. I hope this guide is helpful for either a replica buyer looking to buy a copy of the Louis Vuitton neverfull handbag (so they know how to purchase a top quality bag) as well as anyone looking to buy an authentic and wanting to make sure they don’t get duped into paying the authentic price tag for a knockoff Louis Vuitton! Feel free to comment below and let me know whether you’d go authentic or fake for this Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag!
This post will serve as a very important guide to anyone looking to buy a knockoff or replica bag for the first time for any brand, even though the focus will be on Louis Vuitton in this particular post. The points made however are applicable when shopping for any brand out there so pay close attention especially if it is your first time you may be purchasing a fake bag!
Anyone who has bought a fake or replica bag out there knows that we are bombarded with many claims of various qualities and it seems like every replica seller in town has the best purse if we listen to their claims. But the truth is that there is a tiered system of quality when it comes to replicas and I would say as an educated guess after buying so many for so many years that the tiers are roughly 3 levels. On the third bottom rung is the super disgusting and really really bad knockoffs that never deserve to see the light of day on anyone’s arm or shoulder (yet they still unfortunately do – we’ve all seen one). These are the bags that give replica bags a bad rep and make people think rightfully so that they’d rather be caught dead than wearing a replica purse. However if you are a seasoned replica purchaser you will have most likely come across the second tier as well. The second tier is in the middle – the bags aren’t bad, they get about 75-80% of the original right and they can pass for a fairly decent fake. These were the kind of bags I myself bought when I first dabbled in replica shopping.
But the third first is where it is at my friends if you are looking for quality. This is the tier that exceeds the 90% zone in terms of accuracy and can please even the nittiest of buyers. This is the only type of replica I personally buy as I like to collect bags and these are pretty much as good as the originals in my opinions. Do all brands come in all 3 tiers? I’m not sure and can’t answer this with 100% accuracy but from my purchasing experience most of the popular brands are covered in all 3 tiers. In this post I will compare what I think is a 1st tier replica Louis Vuitton Favorite in Monogram Canvas (which I bought from Designer Discreet) with a 2nd tier Louis Vuitton Favorite in Monogram Canvas (I bought this one a long time ago from a replica seller through email). I didn’t bother buying a 3rd tier for the comparison as you can simply use your imagination to come up with how ugly the bag in that tier looks.
As you can see the replica on the left side has a nice sheen to it like the authentic Louis Vuitton purses while the bag on the right is more dull.
I just wanted to do a quick post sharing what to look for when shopping for a Chanel handbag to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck when shopping for an authentic or fake new, or used, or replica purse. Firstly I’d like to start off by saying Chanel is a very hard to find replica as the parent company actively seeks out any replica sellers who sell their products (and when you see the superfakes you will understand why) as they want to stop the devaluation train for Chanel. This is completely fair and I would do the same if I were Chanel as well.
I do however want to start with a few gripes I have with them, as a Chanel purse lover. Firstly dear Chanel why do you no longer coat your hardware with 24k gold? As a serious Chanel lover and collector I can say that there is a significant decline in quality within the Chanel brand over the years as they seemed to have lowered their production standards. I highly recommend well kept vintage bags that have the gold coating as these bags are in my opinion from a Chanel era in which quality was at the top of their priorities. Anyways enough chit chat. This guide is meant to give you a glimpse at a comparison between an authentic and replica Chanel with tips for spotting fake bags which have been very poorly constructed.
One thing I would like to say before providing this information is that Chanel replica manufacturers have been getting increasingly accurate to the point that I have heard many stories about fake Chanels being returned to authentic boutiques, which is really scary if you are dropping a couple of thousands on what you hope will be a real bag. Overall remember to be vigilant even if shopping in an authentic boutique! Take a look at the guide, and I hope it helps everyone out there!
When looking at the first photo I am sure a lot of people were confused – aren’t both bags real? Well they aren’t. These pictures feature a superfake Chanel being compared to an authentic so the subtleties are more minute and harder to spot, but I thought it would be worth showing! I will do another guide soon that outlines the really bad Chanel fakes I encourage you to burn if you see in person, on the spot, since they totally misconstrue the beauty of the originals, and are a total disgrace to Miss Coco’s designs.
Overall I hope this guide is helpful and makes everyone a wiser shopper when looking for Chanel whether it be online or in person as you are looking to drop down a lot of money on these beauties so make sure it is worth it!
