Micheal Zakroff: I'm the director of CashInMyBag.com. It's almost like the cash for consignment business. The most important part of our business is authentication. I'm here today to tell you how to spot a real from a fake Louis Vuitton bag. What we have here is a real bag, here is a fake bag. We look for many key features because it is illegal a to buy and sell them. One of the key features in the monogram pattern with symmetry vertical and horizontal.

On this bag we see visually it is not. Stitching is also important. It is perfect on a really bag, double stitching means it's fake. All of these pieces have production past the 1980's. What that is is the country origin where the piece is made and month and year made as well. Other key factors is actual best buys. You will never see a bag that comes with another bag. These are just a couple key features here. Thank you from CashInMyBag.com.
