Authentication Check: LV Trevi PM

Hi folks! This is my 1st post. I would like to ask assistance from the experts on this forum!

I recently bought a Trevi PM from a used LV dealer here in my country. This is my first Damier Ebene purse. I got this because my husband bought me an authentic Emilie Wallet in Damier Ebene back in December and I thought of buying a purse to match my wallet. I read a lot of reviews online prior to making this purchase and I think it's a really classy structured purse. I saw this LV seller with 100% feedback who purchases her products as a consignment from Japan and bought the bag from her.

I am a little skeptical about the authenticity of this purse since it only came with a dust bag and there was no authenticity card.

These are some of the flaws I found that heightened my doubts about the authenticity of this purse.

First image shows how the patterns on the side don't align. The left side has the light brown square showing while the right side has the brown pattern showing. I highlighted that below:


Notice how the blocks on the sides are misaligned too:


And the pattern at the bottom does not align either


Notice the double stitch on this area. This is the only part that has the double stitching. I have found some double stitching on my authentic LV Alma purse but the placement was not as evident as this:


Close up view of the stitching on the handle. I find that the stitching looks a little loose.


Are the handles rounded enough or are my eyes just deceiving me that it looks oval


Please let me know if you need more photos to help authenticate my purse. Thanks in advanced for all your help!

Hello LV_Fan_Phil,

Welcome to AuthenticForum.com!

Nice pictures so far, but we need a few more to authenticate:

Louis Vuitton Heatstamp from inside of bag
Datecode stamp from inside of bag
Closeup of the zipper pull
Closeup of Louis Vuitton Paris stamping on outside of bag
Closeup of clip with engraving on strap
Stamping on strap

Thanks.

Thanks for replying LouisV,

Here you go!

Really hard to take pictures of the inside. I hope you see them clearly.

In my opinion, the Trevi is authentic.

The alignment at the base of the purse and other issues you noted happen sometimes....still a great purse. In fact, I happen to have a Trevi that has that same misalignment.

Enjoy it!

I forgot to mention that LV bags do not come with authenticity cards. If you see an "authenticity card" with a LV bag, it's probably a fake.

Please help authenticate my LV Trevi bag.

I have just purchase a pre-owned LV Damier Canvas Trevi PM bag, which is my first LV. The date code is TJ 3182. I have attached some photos. Can you please review the photos and let me know if the bag is a genuine LV bag. Thanks a lot.

Nancy,

I see no red flags on this bag so far, but I'd like to see closeups of the engraving on the zipper pull, engraving on the feet, and the trademark square Louis Vuitton on the exterior of the bag.
