Let’s look at the step-by-step guide to follow when authenticating a Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Damier Ebene Canvas.


Material

The straps of the Neverfull are thin and end in a bulb where they are attached to the bag. There are only 5 stitches on each side of the V. 


 

Strap

The Neverfull is a tote style bag with slim leather straps. Examine the workmanship carefully. All Louis Vuitton bags have precise stitching that is durable and will not show any loose threads. You will not see any sloppy craftsmanship or loose stitching.


 

Stitch 

The stitch line on a Louis Vuitton should be nearly perfect. It should always remain an equal distance from the edge of the handbag at every point, and for the entire length of the stitch. There should be no irregular stitch lengths.


 

Hardware

Louis Vuitton has well defined and finely embossed logo in the metal works. Louis Vuitton doesn’t use YKK or other branded zippers--the back of authentic Louis Vuitton zippers will be blank. The hardware is highly polished and there shouldn't be any uneven plating, textures or waviness. 


 

Rivets

Rivets should have a rounded (mound) shape with the "Louis Vuitton" or LV embossed. Note that the font may differ from the regular logo font (e.g. the "O" is square, not round).
