  1. I've recently decided that I'm going to buy a Louis Vuitton Beaubourg in Monogram Canvas. I think it's an amazingly versatile and I can't stop looking at pictures of it :nuts:

    I'm looking to get it secondhand to save some money, but I don't want to buy a fake. When buying secondhand LV though, buying fakes is a big concern. Rather than post pictures of every beaubourg I see in the "Authenticate This" threads, I'd like to know what the experts on here are looking at, so that I can train my eye to determine whether the bag in real or fake for myself. :biggrin:
    I've looked at a few guides and learned about the obvious "the LV will never be in a seam" kind of stuff, but I'm interested to know the trickier things like what the zipper pulls should say, should they be say "Louis Vuitton" or "LV"? What common flaws do bootleggers have on the Beaubourg bags?
    I'd love it if somebody could give me a hand, thanks so much!!
