    I agree - the stitching should be 2 not 3, but everything else about it looks good. The date code font is throwing me off a little bit, too.

    It cant be authentic, because every papillon I have ever seen has 2 stitches holding the strap on.

    I found a picture taken from eLUXURY (now gone) and the papillion 26 has 3 stitches if you look closely.
    Do you guys still think it's unauthentic? ;/

    Still not authentic, because the because the bag you have is a Papillon 30, not a 26.

    I wouldn't say for certain that it's not authentic, as everything about your bag looks good, except for this one area. The LVs and fleurs on the bag are the correct color, the interior is correct, the "made in France" interior heat stamp is correct, and the placement of the LVs and fleurs are correct. The date code is a real date code, and the patina on the handles looks similar to other bags of the same age, with general use. I wouldn't get rid of it but would wait for some other people to chime in. You could also send it (or pictures) to Carol Diva to have it checked out for sure.

    It looks good, but I was wondering when LV started to use black boxes for the keys, instead of those off-white ones. I agree with Zombiegirl, you definitely need a picture of the date code.

    I agree, the bag looks pretty good. A date code pic would be helpful though.

    Default Can anyone tell me if this bag is authentic?

    Hey, I'm new to this website and was hoping to get some advice. I've done some homework and I have other authentic LV bags that i've bought from Holt Renfrew but i'm not too sure about the Mahina bags and want it to be my next purchase. I am looking at a bag off Ebay. It looks authentic to me but who knows! I have attached some pics. Please let me know what you think! This is a Mahina XL handbag. Thanks!!

    It looks like a fake--the LV symbols are cut off, which they aren't in a real bag, and the lining of the bag is poofy, not smooth, like the real thing. The handle doesn't look right, either.
