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!
