Louis Vuitton Handbags

31Louis Vuitton can be very strict on their policy when it comes to customers purchasing their products. This is because they’re really keen on protecting their brand. Because of that some people may be blacklisted for doing certain things, this article will tell you 3 reasons why you may be blacklisted.

1. Buying Multiples of the Same Model

If you’re suspiciously buying more than 2 of the same model at the same time, you may be blacklisted. Buying a lot of the same model is a huge red flag because Louis Vuitton hates resellers and counterfeiters so if you are ever buying more than one 1 or 2 bags at a time you may be accused of being a reseller.

There are price differences between countries and they just don’t like it when people take advantage of that and buy just to resell at different places for profits.

2. Too many returns

If they see you returning too many items, they’ll become very suspicious. Many reasons why people return used bags could be because they’re simply buying for counterfeiting.

3. You Bought Online

Louis Vuitton has a 5 item limit per calendar year for a combination of bags and/or SLGs. When buying online, you’re order history can be tracked more easily and if they see any pattern that indicates that you’re a reseller then you will get banned.

For the people who goes to the store locations they might be able to bipass buying items over the limit if paying by cash. It is simply a lot easier to track customers purchases online.

There are also instances where Louis Vuitton Paris will have more restriction on Chinese People, where they are only allowed 1 bag per customer. There are rumours that LV Paris may have some unofficial policies when it comes to certain customers. This is a big problem for Chinese in Malaysia who wants to go to Paris and buy cheaper LV bags there.

Many Chinese people in Paris will ask other people who are passing by to buy LV bags for them. When you buy an LV, the store assistent will ask for your details such as your passport and they will record down what you’ve purchased.

For Malaysians you can buy a maximum of 3 bags, but they must all be of a different model and design.

You can Buy Authentic Louis Vuitton items on eBay as long as you do some research. In this article I will go through 4 ways to ensure you’re not getting the short end of the stick!

Know the company: Louis Vuitton has been around since 1854.
Louis Vuitton Does not Discount, not even end of the year sales not at saks, Neiman Marcus nordstrom etc…

Louis Vuitton does not wholesale, the only place to find Brand new LV is on Ebay, eluxury or LouisVuitton.com

Louis Vuitton does not have any outlets or secondaries. If you find a problem with a LV bag they will usually accept returns. They do not Hand the bag down to an outlet, they simply destroy the bag.

Know the person selling the items:
NEGATIVE FEEDBACK SELLERS- Well obviously if they are getting a large amount of negative feed back on ebay, they are more than likely selling fakes… Never a good thing.

PRIVATE FEEDBACK SELLERS- Why would anyone want to keep their feedback private? The only ones that have something to hide are the ones who have negative feedback, usually when I see these I just pass on by.

ZERO FEEDBACK SELLERS- People that have Zero feedback are obviously the new customers eBay has recruited. A lot of times you can wait for a period of time and see how they progress. It really is up to you if you want to give them a try. Just remember its your hard earned money.

**3**
Know the Date code:
Louis Vuitton uses what you would call production code. This code is for their own purpose. It does give some sort of clue as to how old the bag is or where it was made. The codes on them are not unique, there are some that have the same number. Since the early 90’s this code has been marked by 2 Letters followed by 4 numbers.

**4**
Get Pictures:
While on ebay, do not be afraid to email the seller asking them for pictures of the front, back,sides, lining, anything you can come up with. Not too long ago, a good friend of mine briefly spoke with a louis vuitton representative. She was told a really easy way to spot a fake Louis Vuitton is to look at the outer seams of a purse. A real Louis Vuitton purse will not have the “LV” initials shortened in any way, so if you see a Louis Vuitton purse selling for hundreds, but the seam you only see a half or cut off “LV” Do Not Buy It! Unless you want a fake. Take these tips and apply them.

Louis Vuitton Flight Paname Takeoff Bag

29Despite the global recession, some luxury brands are retaining their value. According to the annual Millward Brown BrandZ ranking of the Top 100 Most Powerful Brands released April 29, Louis Vuitton is still on the top. As I see its unprecedented resilience lies in its high quality products, uniqueness as well as its deep root in the culture.

Since its very birth, Louis Vuitton has never failed to surprise and satisfy its customer. And this season is no exception. The Flight Paname Takeoff Bag in the Spring Summer 2009 Louis Vuitton city bags for women is a masterpiece, which owns to the inspiration to the 1970’s airlines travel luggage. You can tell it from its creative name.

Crafted in luxurious calfskin leather and soft cotton lining, the bag impresses people with robust and endurable nature. The bag combines ideal volume and functionality. That is to say, with a size of 8.6″ x 7.5″ x 3.9″, the bag holds modest capacity for luggage-carrying, thus you are able to pack all your daily necessities into it easily and still appears chic. Besides, there are several small pockets for storing items separately and orderly, including a flat inside pocket, two out side compartments and a flat back pocket. All those pockets are zipped for security working together with a large zipper closure on the bag top and a golden brass Louis Vuitton engraved padlock. Thanks to the golden brass trimming and small leather accompany goods, the bag becomes lovely and lively. It comes with a removable ID tag for authentication and a key holder for your convenience. The bag is to be shoulder-carry with adjustable shoulder strap.

What adds to the intrigue is the color. The bag is available in yellow, red and blue. You may have noticed that the tree colors are what we call the three primary colors. Through combining the tree colors at different proportions, you can get various colors, thus a glorious wonderful world comes into being. Is it the originality behind the bag? I believe so.

Tips To Buy Authentic, Used Louis Vuitton Bags

27For women who love handbags, a Louis Vuitton is something they look forward to owning. The luxury bags are rather expensive and this means that not everyone can afford to own a new bag. There are options for those who want to own authentic LV bags. One way to own the bag without spending a fortune is to buy used. There are tips to help you when shopping for used Louis Vuitton bags.

The difference between real and fake

When you decide to shop for the bags, you need to know how to tell an authentic bag from a fake one. You need to be wary of some sites that claim to sell Louis Vuitton bags and yet they sell fakes. When you know how to identify the real thing, you will not end up spending your money on a bag that is a knock-off. Find out tips that will help you to buy real Louis Vuitton handbags online. Look for a clear and distinctive LV logo that is often printed all over the bag.

Check the handbag for imperfections

When shopping online, make sure that you know how to spot imperfections. This may be hard to do when you look at a photo on the website and the best way to avoid mistakes is by shopping from a reputable site. Looking at the physical item is the best thing that you can do because you can see if it has imperfections. The bags are made with strict emphasis to detail and seeing a stitch out-of-place is a sign of a counterfeit. Feeling the bag will also help because a real LV should feel soft and not stiff.

Look for the serial number

When shopping for used Louis Vuitton bags, you need to know how to check for the serial number. Authentic LV bags have serial numbers but sometimes the number is hidden and not very easy to spot. Look along the seam and remember that if the bag is genuine, it is created from a continuous fabric and the seams should be smooth all the way. If you can see signs of glue from the exterior, the bag is probably a fake.

One of the best ways to ensure that you get a real LV bag is in knowing where to shop. Shopping from an official Louis Vuitton retailer is one of the best ways to ensure that you get quality. If you decide to shop from an auction site or swap shop, make sure that you choose a reputable site. The quoted price is often a good indication of the bag’s authenticity. If the bag is retailing for a suspiciously low price, it is probably a fake!
