Hello,

I have been wondering about my bag if it's fake for a long time. And suddenly today while shuffling through youtube, I realised that my bag handle's a bit different from the youtube video and then I searched the image from LV official website. The handle on the website is like the attached below picture.
I've heard that LV is very meticulous about its stitching.
As in LV's website, the hardware pin is inside the stitch, however my bag's pin is outside the stitching.

My bag's the same as the pic on this link:

This is the video that I came across on youtube

I bought my bag at Harrods back in 2012. The code is SP2182, the bag's structure is really bad which has concerned me along time. And the hardware started to chip after some use. Only the hardware of the strap still looks good to me. I can post my bag pictures if you request!

Any comment is appreciated and welcome!

There was a change in the placement of the rivet and stitch line. That's part of a major redesign of the Speedy. The Speedy has no structure, so if it is too slouchy for your taste, I suggest you purchase a bag shaper. Finally, the hardware is unfortunately proned to chipping with use. Take your bag to a boutique and let the repair specialist assess it. They might conclude you can get a free repair. If not, they will quote you a price for a change of the hardware. Although there is no written-down warranty, repairs are usually complimentary within a year of your purchase.

I agree with both of the posters above. I especially wouldn't worry if you purchased your bag from a boutique. Also, the 2nd picture you posted is one of the "re-designed" speedys and so it will look different than yours.
