- Authentic Louis Vuitton bags do not have a swatch of fabric/leather dangling from the handles
- Authentic Louis Vuitton dustbags do not have rounded corners
- Ask for detailed photos of the "Louis Vuitton" font and the stitching on the bag - authentic bags have perfectly placed stitching and the edges are not glued together
- If you are still unsure, ask for help on the message boards
