If you’re reading this, it’s probably because owning an LV bag is your dream, but with price tags of $2000+, you can’t afford an authentic model and so are looking for Louis Vuitton dupe bags to fill the void.
Now don’t worry, I’m not here to tell you that you shouldn’t buy dupes and that there aren’t cheaper ways to get amazing products. I’m just here to tell you a better way. The better way? Replicas.
Dupes of LV bags are simply close copies, made in a way so that they don’t have the LV logo or any branding on them. Whereas a replica tries to get as close to the authentic as possible, including all logos, tags and designs etc. If I told you most dupes were just as expensive as a high quality superfake Louis Vuitton Neverfull, which one would you choose?
It’s a no-brainer really, so in this article I’m going to go over the top 5 reasons why you shouldn’t bother with LV dupes, and should get a high-quality LV replica instead.
Obviously as mentioned in the introduction, you’re looking at dupes to save money. And I don’t blame you one bit (I actually encourage you). With Louis Vuitton and all the other fashion houses increasing their prices year on year, replicas are becoming more and more popular. The price of a Louis Vuitton Neverfull has almost doubled since it was first announced, and yet if you take a minute to look at the reviews, you’ll see the quality is worse.
But dupes don’t solve the problem, you want a Louis Vuitton bag, but don’t want to pay full price. Dupes are often $50-100, and are often low quality, unbranded bags. Why pay that, when you can get a fully branded replica model for $130? Then you can have the best of both worlds, a bag that looks 100% authentic, for the same price as a dupe. Having your cake, and eating it too!
As a high-quality Louis Vuitton Replica specialist, I see more bad stitching and mis-aligned canvas on authentic nowadays. With the constant price increases, this makes me think they’re taking advantage of people blinded by the brand.
Dupes sprang up because of this. But the quality of dupes matches the price for the most part. Even the higher priced dupes I’ve bought have felt plasticky and are not real leather. There’s no way this bag would pass as the real thing to anyone who knows even a little bit about Louis Vuitton handbags.
So again, I ask you this question. Pay $50-100 for a plastic Louis Vuitton dupe that looks fake? Or pay $130 for a replica that is made of real leather and has the LV branding?
The poor quality of Louis Vuitton dupes means they are easily calloutable. If you’re thinking dupes are bags that you can pass off as the real thing, then you’re sorely mistaken sister and I’m sorry to have to be the one to tell you.
All aspects of the LV Neverfull dupe I bought to test were horribly off with the authentic. The interior had no branding at all, but this is okay if nobody looks inside your bag.
The real problems were on the outside. The hardware was plastic and felt really cheap, the stitching was clearly rushed, with missed stitches as these are mass-produced bags, not made with care like the authentic and replicas are.
The canvas was also PVC and not real leather. Many Louis Vuitton dupe sites will lie and say they use leather, unfortunately this is not the case, and you won’t know until it’s too late. Also, if you love the LV monogram canvas like I do, unfortunately you’re straight out of luck. As the monogram canvas uses the LV logo on it, no dupe will have it, meaning anyone can see your dupe is a fake bag from 50 miles away. You won’t have this problem with a high quality replica bag. Let’s take a quick look at 3 examples shall we?
Louis Vuitton Speedy Dupe in Monogram Canvas
Immediately, it doesn’t take a genius to see how bad the dupe model is. Considering this replica only cost $40 more, it’s basically 100% the same as the original in terms of material quality, such as the shininess of the canvas, and the pattern.
As expected, the LV Speedy Dupe is missing the LV logo, and has entirely made up shapes on it. It’s not even close to the authentic model, and the material looks dull, obviously not real leather. If you’re looking at buying the dupe, you’re frankly throwing away your money.
Louis Vuitton Bumbag Dupe in Monogram Canvas
Now let’s look at the bumbag. The hilarious thing is that this dupe is actually MORE expensive than the replica. It suffers from the same problems as the speedy, in that it doesn’t even look REMOTELY similar to the original, it’s super obvious to ANYONE that this is a fake LV bag. Not only is the tag not the correct shape, it doesn’t even say “Louis Vuitton” on it!
I’m not sure why anyone would spend money on something like that and I hope you’re now realizing how silly it is to buy a dupe. Meanwhile, the replica perfectly emulates the canvas, and has the correct branding, tag shape, hardware and handles.
Louis Vuitton Neverfull Dupe in Damier Ebene Canvas
Let’s have a look at the Damier Ebene canvas and the interior of the bags. Here we have the famous LV Neverfull, one of my favorite bags, making this dupe a particular insult. I don’t even need to explain how off the color is, and I’m sure it goes without mentioning that there’s no branding, and the pochette isn’t the right shape. But if you look closely at the canvas on the pochette, you can see it lacks the logo too.
LV dupes are frankly an insult to fashion, I hope I’ve opened your eyes to the shady dupe market, I’m sure you wouldn’t want one of these bags when you could have a replica for the same price!
People Who Recommend Dupes Get Affiliate Commission
Many blog posts recommend dupes. These are all paid posts in which the writer gets commission every time someone visits their blog and buys a low quality dupe. I’m a completely impartial replica reviewer and so I’m not motivated by money. These dishonest blog posts will say whatever it takes to get you to buy a Louis Vuitton dupe. So keep this in mind.
Thankfully, you’ve found my blog first. Here I tell the truth about high quality replicas, so you can have an LV bag for a fraction of the cost.
I also wouldn’t trust any of the dupe sellers, they all seem to have hundreds of fake reviews. I would not trust them with my payment details and I don’t recommend you risk it either. You’d probably wind up getting scammed.
Lack of Models
Which model of Louis Vuitton dupe bag are you looking for? If it’s not the Neverfull, Pochette Metis or the Speedy, I’ve got some bad news for you. Dupes are only available in such a limited selection that it’s primarily these two models. Also, dupe sellers are constantly disappearing and having their websites taken down.
You don’t have this problem with replica sellers, any LV model you could ever dream of, the Keepall, Kimono, Delightful, Palermo, Tivoli, you name it, there is a high quality replica of it, available in all sizes and colorways.
