    Default I think I bought a fake.....

    Hi.
    The worst thing has happened.

    I think I bought a fake.

    It was a Keepall 45 Monogram barrel bag.

    Anyhow.... a friend of mine told me it was fake....

    Can you please confirm this for me?

    The made in france imprint has a small "f" - my friend said the f should be a capital F.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    It is true that made in France should have a capital F, but for a definite answer, post pics in the authenticate this thread.

    Hello,
    There are many facts which I would like to point out to reveal this fake stuff. My friend said this is the best fake he has seen!

    Problems with the Keepall 45 are as follows:-

    1) The Louis Vuitton impressed stamps.
    These are wrong in many ways:-
    a) The font is not correct.
    b) The country of manufacture ALWAYS starts with a capital letter. It should me "made in France" NOT "made in france"
    c) The impressed wording is TOO heavily pressed into the leather. Also the balance of the pressing is not 100% perfect ie. 1 corner is not as heavily pressed as the other corners.




    2) The leather ware itself - this is the honey comb leather parts
    a) These have been artificially aged with chemicals
    b) The leather is lower grade than genuine Louis Vuitton leather
    c) The size of the parts is not 100% in proportion compared to genuine Louis Vuitton items





    3) The Monogram canvas has a few flaws
    a) The finished sewing job is not 100% perfect - parts of the bag puff out and this is not the way genuine Louis Vuitton is!
    b) The feel of the canvas is not correct





    4) Tricks used to hid the fact the item is fake
    a) The padlock is a genuine Louis Vuitton padlock.... however it has been treated with chemicals to tarnish the brass! The chemicals have affected the fake brass pulls
    b) the aging chemicals have not left a 100% perfectly aged piece.....
    c) Stiches are the wrong color and are not perfect




    5) Brassware is fake
    a) The weight of the brass pulls is lighter than genuine
    b) The brassware has been treated with chemicals to age it.... however the undersurface is false for 100% brass fittings






    PLEASE TELL ME IF I AM WRONG!!! OR TELL ME IF YO AGREE WITH ME!!!
