    Question Re: Louis Vuitton Handbag: Please authenticate this purse

    I bought an "AUTHENTIC Louis Vuitton Thames PM" bag on eBay and paid $599 + shipping. If the bag is real then the date code of SD1089 means the bag was produced in the 18th week of 2009. I have attached the photos that were on eBay. I so BADLY hope this is the real thing. Please authenticate this purse! Thanks so much! -Stacey Looks like I can't add my link because I haven't had 10 posts, so I will just have to hope that the bag I just paid $600 for is the real deal. The production code is SD1089 and all the LV's are aligned symmetrically acros the bag. The production code is stamped on a little piece of leather sewn in to the lining somewhere on the bag (picture is only of code, so hard to tell where it is located). Wish I could show you pictures!

    Default Re: Is this a genuine Louis Vuitton?? Help

    We need to see pictures of the bag to be able to tell you anything. Also, it matters to US if the bag is authentic or not. We do NOT support fakes here at TBF!

    The reason I myself questioned it's authenticity is because...
    1. If you had a Louis vuitton bag surely you would keep it in immaculate condition!!
    2. I was not given a dust cover
    3. I can not find a serial number ANYWHERE
    4. I never got chance to ask the woman that give me it if it was real (& now I'm no longer in contact with her)
    5. I have never seen another bag like this.

    Even though the bag is damaged the quality of it is beautiful, and it I an all round lovely looking, smart bag.
    It has to gold plates either side of the top of it. A gold fastening on the front (all say Louis vuitton) the inside of the bag is suede and it also says loyis vuitton made in France.
    Aswel it is a generous weight and the stitching all looks perfect.

    It doesn't make a difference to me if the bag is genuine or not, but tje curiosity is hounding me!!!
    (I am posting this from my phone, however if anyone can help me I will upload some photos later on)

    Thanks in advance for any tips / help xx

    Default Re: Louis Vuitton Handbag: Please authenticate this purse

    Thanx a lot boysRsmelly Sorry for the late reply, I got lost finding this link That' s wat I thought. Still I have my doubts about this bag
    1) It is in a very good condition despite its age
    2) As good as new with no defects except for a tinee winee leather peel at the side
    3) Handle , turning slightly darker
    Other then that it look genuine. Is there any possibility that fake LV bags also have embossed manufactured date?

    The bag is only 2 years old, so if the owner didn't carry it a lot then it wouldn't be weird that it looks "good". There are fakes that have fake date codes. I don't think this is the case though. Did you get the bag yet? You could post better pics of the heat stamp and whatnot on here. So far I don't see anything that would make me think the bag was fake though.

    I figured out what the vachetta thing is!! It is actually the bottom of one of the handles. Anyhoo, I missed out on the bag but I was wondering if either you or boysRsmelly could take a look at this bag for me? Is it authentic? Thanks in advance! :)

    It looks good to me pinkvelvet. Since the seller is in Japan, I suggest maybe sending them a message and make sure they aren't having any problems shipping.

    Thanks for your help lilstrlett! I have sent a message to seller in regards to shipping. Hopefully it would arrive in a week at the latest. As I need a bag asap!! I just bought a mulberry bag from net-a-porter but I'm thinking of returning as the quality is less than impressive. :S

    I agree, the bag looks good. I just worry since it looks like one of those long-term listings that maybe has been up since before the earthquake and you may have difficulty having the item sent.

    The seller replied to my message on ebay about shipping times. They said that there maybe a delay and that it could take up to 7 days.

    I also have a couple more bags for yourself and lilstrlett to authenticate. Could you guys please take a look at these petit noes?

    1) AUTHENTIC LOUIS VUITTON PETIT PETITE NOE BUCKET BAG (eBay item 130500325816 end time 01-Apr-11 05:41:21 AEDST) : Clothing, Shoes Accessories

    2) Louis Vuitton Authentic Monogram Purse Auth Bag NOE (eBay item 280647458155 end time 20-Apr-11 13:40:54 AEST) : Clothing, Shoes Accessories

    Which one do you think is better to purchase? The first one is cheaper by $80 but has a several scuff marks, dirty marks and water marks on the leather parts. The second one kind of looks brand new.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Both look okay. I don't think it is worth it to save $80 by getting the one with the water stains on it.

    Hi, boysRsmelly and lilstrlett! Do you guys think this one is authentic? I need a second opinion because I think that the canvas alignment looks at little off.

    Looks okay to me. I'm not sure what you're talking about with the alignment. The edges of the bag don't appear to be pushed out all the way so the pattern is going around a corner. So it might just be the way it looks in the picture.
