Although we have covered how to spot fake Louis Vuitton bags before (see here), and in general the guidelines are the same, there are still a few details that are specific to LV belts. If you are curious as to what they are, we have found the top 3 ways to find a counterfeit LV belt that will make you a pro in no time.
Louis Vuitton belts are only made in Spain, any style that specifies being made in any other country but that is not the real deal. That being said, there have been customers who have stated that the belts they have purchased from the LV boutiques have been stamped with a “Made in France” mark, so production might be changing. Another exception are belts produced between 1980-1990, which were in fact produced outside of Spain; which means that the new belts being made in other common LV producing countries is not that farfetched.
Little things like making sure the screw color on the buckle matched the actual metal the buckle is made out of, are key to making sure your item is real. It is also important to make sure that the back of your buckle does not come with any type of engravings; the “Made In” stamp for example is usually located along the inner part of the belt, carved into the leather.
As with all other Louis Vuitton items, there are no such thing as authenticity cards. While not having one is a dead tell for brands like Chanel or Alexander Wang, LV bags and items just have date codes. If the vendor you are purchasing from is boasting an authenticity card with your belt, then run the other way!
