Outside Leather Tag

Nowadays it is all about the tag. It is all about the brand name stamped on your most prized possessions. Everything you own, wear, eat or drink has a name tag. The louder the name echoes the priciest they get. And admit it, ladies, you are dying to own the most expensive, luxurious, beautiful and sophisticated brand name bags. But let’s not forget that a real fashionista recognizes beauty regardless of its price tag.

You probably have noticed that designer handbags are over-stamped   with the brand name and logo. Everywhere you look there is a reminder of the company’s name. This is also the case with Louis Vuitton, one of the world’s most renewed fashion designer house. Many of its bags have a leather tag on the outside which has a heat embossed “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in France” mark. This iconic text is written on three lines and has the letter R in a circle, positioned above it.

For comparison I will present two photos. The first one is of a genuine Louis Vuitton bag and the second one is of its replica. Both pictures show the same part of the purse, the outside heat embossed leather tag.  As you can see, on the genuine product the letters are very clear and perfectly printed. There are no deviations, smudges or any type of imperfections. On the second one the text is not so legible. You can barely make out the words. It is obvious that the quality of the heat embossed technique is quite poor. Additionally, “France” is written with a lower case “f”. To wrap it up, the yellow stitching covers the circled letter R and the “VU” from “VUITTON”. The overall leather tag looks messy, sloppy and, frankly, quite ugly.

Indeed, when it comes to beauty and fashion it is not all about the tag. But when it comes to finding a perfect replica handbag, believe me, the tag is important. You need to pay attention to this little detail and make sure it is a perfect match with the original product, that there are no noticeable differences and that your purse will convince any trained eye that it is, in fact, the real deal.
