Like Speedy and Noe Bag, Louis Vuitton Alma bag is one of the classics in the house of Louis Vuitton. It has been around for decades; people never get enough of it. That’s probably why when a very obvious fake Alma bag appeared on eBay, lots of buyers put their best bids forward. It ended up $370 in total. Not a bargain at all considering imitations like this are easily available from markets in Thailand or KL China Town for below $30.
Here are some photos of the fake Alma on eBay, can you spot the differences between this one and an authentic Louis Vuitton monogram Alma bag?
It might help if I put up some pictures of an authentic Louis Vuitton monogram Alam bag for you to compare:
Clue number 1: Louis Vuitton uses a particular type of font with a well-rounded O. See the difference?
Clue number 2: Real Louis Vuitton Alma bags never have large center pocket divider inside the bag.
I adore the photo below… that Alma bag is still looking gorgeous in a very dark patina. One thing for sure, authentic Louis Vuitton bags age well.
