    Default ebay seller hoppa93

    I'm not sure but the LV label seems a bit off - is this fake?

    This person' had 100% feedback and when you check feedback comments there's even a previous buyer thanking him/her for an authentic LV bag.



    the auction is on
    AUTH. LOUIS VUITTON VIVA CITE GM EXC. COND. NO RESERVE! - (eBay item 160151600716 end time Sep-06-07 10:00:00 PDT)

    and there's 3 people already bidding on it..:fear:

    I compared the heat stamp in your photo with the heat stamps in my three LVs. The only difference is that none of mine have that "borderline" (the lines around the perimeter that criss-cross at the corners). Other than that, the font and yellow thread looks identical. So, I don't know what to say. Do some heat stamps have borders? The purse itself looks good as far as I can tell; the pattern is symmetrical, and it's the symmetry that seems to get the fakes each time. But -disclaimer!- I'm not expert on this.

    your're probably right - (try to think positive) it's hard to believe someone with a 100% feedback rating would want to ruin it with a negative when they've got less than a 100 feedbacks altogether - cause it'll really bring down their rating.

    maybe its the angle of the way the photo was taken that made it look awkward as if it was almost stuck on - but then taking photos of the inside close-up is not the easiest.

    Here are some pictures of my Manhattan to compare it with; you can see what I mean by the borderline around the heat stamp. Mine doesn't have it (and I bought it at an LV store, so I KNOW it's real, lol). Also attached is the outside, so you can compare the canvas and hardware. We really need a library in this place.

    Magnolia, your bag is perfect, as it should be. See how straight and clean the line is above the label where the sides meet the top? Now look at the other bag. It looks like the seams on the red lining are splitting open below the stitching and you could see the dark lining underneath peeking out.

    And compare the above label to the same Viva-Cite bag recently sold by MPRS fashionphile



    there's no border outside the very neat yellow stitching that doubles 3 stitches on the lower left hand corner. Do the labels on the same model LV bags vary that much?

    Best to leave it alone, then.

    The bag looks off to me... I think its a high quality fake. I wouldn't buy it if I were you.
