    Default What's the difference btwn Made in USA and Made in France????

    Ok ladies & gentlemen - I've looked all over the forum to find this answer so that I am not repeating the question if it is out there...

    LV are made in several places, epecially in France, Spain and USA. Are there differences in quality? Which location is better or is it the same?

    All I know is that the fakes/replicas are usually stamped w/Made in France which I'm assuming is there generic stamps they use. I've seen several nasty and fugly fakes and ALL have the Made in France stamp. So when I am looking at pre-loved LV's to buy, I'm quicker to jump on the Made in USA and am more hesitant for Made in France .

    However, I owned alot of Authentic LV's that are made in both France and USA - is there any difference between the locations that they are made in???

    I own pieces made in France, USA, and Spain... and I haven't seen any difference bet. the quality. Although the hardware on my USA piece has chipped a bit more than my France/Spain pieces... but I just assume its due to wear.

    I don't think there's any difference. Mine are Made in USA, France and Spain. Most of the bags in Australia will be either made in France, although my BV was made in Spain. Depends on the batch they get in.

    I don't really think that there is a difference either. I don't really have anything to compare it to because I only one LV, a Monogram Papillon that is made in France. I agree with Arianne12, i think it just depends what batch that they get in.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    As far as I know, there isn't any difference. They follow the same quality guidelines in the all their factories.

    Why is that some people make you feel that "made in France" is more authentic or better quality then the other locations. I myself prefer made in USA because then I know it's really authentic...I have yet to see a replica/fake that has this stamp on it. However, I'm sure that there will be someone out there who's working on making fake embosser with the USA stamp.

    I suppose it's because Louis Vuitton is French company so it is assumed that anything made in the country of origin is of a higher quality. But with the US being such a huge market for LV, you would expect strict quality controls for those manufactured within the US.

    Hm. Good question, I never thought there was a difference for instance between a LV Speedy 30 made here, and an LV Speedy 30 made in france.
    Does anyone have any pix of two bags of same designer made in different places?

    There's no difference and the quality is the same, but if I were to pick I'd go with one from France since that's where LV originated from :)

    I talked to the SA before about this, made in usa, made in spain, made in france... She told me that usually the monogram are made in usa, because if they imported from France will takes longer to clear the custom (because of the replica restriction i guess) that's why they have it made in usa. But sometimes they do have some monogram from France, just rare.

    However, the ppl in usa factory are from France, they follow the same standards to make bags. There is no different at all.

    Honestly I do not think there is any difference at all. I have items manufactured in Spain, France and US and have not seen any differences.
