3 ways to distinguish the most detailed “real or fake” brand product

Using branded products with well-known brands in the world has become an indispensable need for a large number of consumers. You spend a lot of money to buy branded products, but in return you get a fake and poor quality product.

There have been many questions about these issues. At a large customer survey program for longtime brand watchers, we made an appointment with a well-known brand business to have a specific part of a major brand that is being considered by many. That’s Louis Vuitton.

1. Buy in a prestigious place

To buy genuine brands, consumers need to look to stores with clear addresses. Genuine products are purchased directly from European stores in distribution or portable form.

Buyers, when paying for the store will provide customers with complete sales information about the product. Based on that information for a lifetime warranty for each product sold.

2. See the sample on its website

When buying a brand item, you need to understand it carefully and see the product image on its official website. Genuine LV goods have goods bill on it showing product information


It is easy to see that on Bill’s purchases, there is sufficient source information to purchase the German city address of Berlin on the left, right, showing the date of purchase.

Product code

The Louis Vuitton website of the new collection has codes for each type of product.

Product code on Bill = Website Code SP = Code when purchasing the product (For example, here is Product code M6897)

(3rd digit + 5 displayed is the production week & 4th digit + 6)


Furniture LV is usually hand-sewn and aligned. Another point of counterfeit goods is the SPI index (stitches per inch), representing the number of stitches in 1 inch of stitches (2.5cm). The number of stitches is usually 13 × 8 (13 horizontal, 8 vertical).
