February 12, Louis VuittonAuthentication. We've covered date codes in our Louis Vuitton Authenticity Guidebut we wanted to take a deeper dive into Louis Vuitton date codes because dats is one of the more common questions we get as a reseller of authentic Louis Vuitton items.

We're creating this Louis Vuitton date code guide to teach you more about date codes, but not as tool to authenticate Louis Vuitton items. Read on to learn more about Louis Vuitton date codes. First things first: all modern Louis Vuitton items have date codes. LV bags do not have serial numbers, instead, Louis Vuitton handbags have "date codes" date on interior tags or directly on interior linings or in a hidden location on the exterior of the bag.

These date codes serve to identify the manufacturing location and date for a Louis Vuitton handbag, not to verify its authenticity. Louis Vuitton date codes are a combination of letters and numbers. Note, vintage Louis Vuitton items pre do not have date codes, and on some old materials, the date codes may have faded out. Note that because date codes are not unique serial numbers, meaning multiple items will have the same date code if they were made in the same Louis Vuitton artisan workshops at the same time.

For example, Louis Vuitton may have created 15 Pochette Metis bags in their workshop in France during August the 34th week of All 15 of those Pochette Metis bags would have the same date code printed on a small leather tag in the back zip pocket: FL What do date codes have to do with the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton accessory? Well, deciphering the date code of a Louis Vuitton is our first step in authenticating any Louis Vuitton item.

A date code tells us the z of the bag. Everything we look at from that point on will be framed around the information date code. Is it the right font? What year is the bag?

When is supposed to be made? Does the Louis Vuitton 'Made In' heat stamp correspond with the date code? Was that bag ever produced in that country?

Does the production characteristics of lvv bag match that year? It's important to note that a date code does not date indicate authenticity on a Louis Vuitton item. Many counterfeit items have date codes that match the correct format. Date codes are just one piece of the authenticity puzzle. There are many factors to indicate whether or not a Louis Vuitton item is authentic. Every aspect of the item such as font, size, stampings, symmetry, stitching, hardware, authenticity stamps, as well as overall workmanship and materials are inspected and determined to be consistent with the manufacturer's established standards of s need to pass a rigorous test in order to be deemed authentic.

But where exactly are these date codes? Finding a date code on a Louis Vuitton bag isn't easy Date are always tucked away along seams and inside pockets. Get ready to look in every nook and cranny of your LV. You'll find serif and sans serif fonts on date codes depending on the year and factory location for example, different Speedy bags have both serif and sans serif date codes.

A single style may have multiple locations of date codes through the years a Speedy bag may be produced in France, Spain, and USA. A date code may look slightly different dat on whether dahe is stamped date Alcantra fabric or dtae leather tab, stamped and colored as on Epi pieces. This can throw a buyer off in terms of whether the date code looks correct or not, but it's intentional to ward off counterfeiters. Beginning inLouis Vuitton added codes to every item to indicate when and where it was made.

In some early bags, the location stamp and date stamp will be separated. In the s, Louis Vuitton simplified date codes to one uniform format: 2 letters to indicate location and alternative numbers for the month and year. The first two letters represent the factory location. The first and third numbers represent the month and the second and forth numbers represent the year.

InLouis Vuitton started using weeks in date codes instead of date month. This allowed for them to keep their standard formatting but break their production labeling out into 52 weeks instead of 12 weeks. This means there is more of detailed view of when your bag was produced down to a precise 7-day window.

Instead of knowing that your bag was made in France in November, you can now know that your bag was made in the 46th week of that year. Tracking the country of origin on your Louis Vuitton is done by tracking two simple letters. Unlike the dte of origin, there are many datd exceptions to country codes which can consequently lead to novice mistakes when trying to spot a fake Louis Vuitton date code. While not a complete list, these are codes and the country of origin they typically represent.

If applicable, this code will match the "made in XYZ country" stamp that appears elsewhere on Louis Vuitton items. As with any good rule, there are always exceptions to this chart.

Take for example the code SD. Bags produced after should date SD with a marking for U. There are a ton of articles out there that have taught me a date.

A great one is this article. Being able to distinguish between a random, fake dote code and a real one is super important. Out biggest sale of the year is here!

No Date Code Stamp

This stamp can reveal the time and country of manufacture. If no datecode can be found anywhere on the inside of your Louis Vuitton bag or wallet, there may be two reasons for this. The item could have been manufactured before Or, if the inside lining is of a soft material, the date code can be worn off. Louis Vuitton started stamping some bags in the early s. A date code from this time period could consist of 3 or 4 numbers. The first 2 numbers represent the year with the latter numbers representing the month of date.

Using the example up abovewe know that the date code represents 19 83 in the 4 th month. For some s and for all bagsthe datecode will be 3 or 4 numbers followed date 2 letters. Again, the date 2 numbers represent the year and the latter numbers represent the month the bag was made. The 2 letters represent the location of where the item was constructed. Please refer to the country codes below for corresponding letters. The date code in the above picture reads VI. The I is obscured in the image, but it's there.

This date code stands for 19 89 in the 7 th month of the year. Date bag was constructed in Date, as VI represents a factory located in France. From todate codes are 2 letters followed by 4 numbers. The 2 letters represent the country of construction. The date and 3rd number represent the month of the manufacture, while the 2nd and 4th number represent the year. The newest bags also have date codes consisting of 2 letters followed by 4 numbers. The 2 letters once again represent the country of construction.

The 1st and 3rd number represent the week of manufacture, and the 2nd and 4th number represent the year. It was also finished in the 47 th week of the year 20 However, if the country code letters don't match with the "made in" stamp located on the bag or wallet, the item is certainly fake.

Who Was Louis Vuitton?

Instead of indicating the month an item was manufactured, the first and third numbers now represent the week and the second and fourth numbers still represent the year. The letters continue to represent the specific factory where an item was manufactured. An exception for this rule is sunglasses. Sunglasses can have date codes with one letter and four digits, slightly different than any other date code format. Subscribe to see what's trending! Facebook Instagram Twitter Pinterest Google.

Directly on the lining of the piece, usually on the interior edge of a pocket, either horizontal or vertical. So, for example, VI signifies the bag was made in France in March, While the two letters still identify the factory and country where the bag was manufactured, the order of the numbers changed, making their identification of when the bag was made a little more intricate.

From this time on, date codes always consist of four numbers and, within this time period, the first and third numbers represent the month, and the second and fourth represent the year. So, for example, AR signifies the bag was made in France in November, Now, however, the numbers more approximately detail when the bag was made. The first and third numbers represent the week, and the second and fourth represent the year.

Note: this is not an exhaustive list, and some countries share a country code. In order to ensure its bags are made with only the finest materials and to maintain its highest level of craftsmanship, Louis Vuitton has used its own line of signature — LV stamped — golden brass hardware since This includes all zippers, grommets, rivets, and studs found on its range of bags. They should all look luxurious, but still be functional and sturdy.

Depending on the bag style and time period, many variations of these hardware elements have been released. You will undoubtedly come across many different styles of zippers! It is best, but not entirely reasonable, to memorize which hardware has been paired with which bag — and when! For its stitching, Louis Vuitton uses a high-quality linen thread that is strengthened by beeswax.

Because of this, on slightly used, like-new bags, you should never see a loose thread; though on worn, vintage bags it is not unheard of — but still, extremely rare. It must be even and consistent — completely flawless — or the bag will not even make it out of the factory!

Do not be shy; take a whiff! It is completely normal for vintage Louis Vuitton bags to have a slight storage or leather odor. But, clarify:. In hopes of making the authentication process more comprehensible and less overwhelming, we have broken it down into parts; however, in the end, a bag must be considered wholly. All of the elements listed must be in sync before a bag can be declared an authentic Louis Vuitton.

Keep in mind: at the end of every season, Louis Vuitton burns or shreds all of its bags that have not been sold, so you will never see an authentic Louis Vuitton on sale unless, of course, it is pre-owned. But, do not let this send you into a frenzy, impulsively purchasing an especially rare vintage style. If there is no guarantee of authenticity, it is always best to do your research and take your time. If a find seems too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your gut, and may we all be lucky in Louis.

Authentication 15 Mar ' The LV Monogram First appearing in to commemorate Louis after he died, the monogram was invented specifically to ward off counterfeits. If the answer is yes , the bag might be authentic.

On the traditional coated canvas, the monogram should never have a green tinge to it. The monogram pattern should always be in this order. Certain styles are made with one continuous piece of leather, which wraps around with no seam on the bottom [see: the Speedy, Keepall, and Papillon for examples]. If the answer is no , the bag might be authentic.

Louis Vuitton would never obscure its iconic namesake! Does the monogram pattern match at every seam? Vachetta Leather Vachetta — an untreated, natural cowhide leather — is used for the handles, straps, trim, and bottoms of Monogram and Damier canvas bags [for some classic examples, see: the Speedy, Alma, Noe, Boulogne, and Keepall].

Is the glaze around the edges of the handles or strap a reddish color? Is the color of the patina even throughout? Is the patina more concentrated around the top of the handles?

Heat Stamp A heat stamp is a Louis Vuitton marking located either inside or outside the bag. Older styles that were made in France often say this instead. This is standard in newer styles. Does one appear to be wider than the other?

If the answers are yes , the bag might be authentic. Date Code Formats Louis Vuitton does not imprint its bags with serial numbers but, instead, date codes, which disclose where and when the bag was manufactured.

When hunting for pre-owned Louis Vuitton, it is important to acquaint yourself with their different configurations: In the early s , date codes were only three or four numbers. For example, if the date code reads or LA, then you can be certain the bag is a counterfeit because there are not 15 months or 62 weeks in a year!

For example, if the date code reads LP but the heat stamp claims the bag was manufactured in Switzerland, then you can be certain the bag is a counterfeit because LP identifies a factory in Germany! Hardware In order to ensure its bags are made with only the finest materials and to maintain its highest level of craftsmanship, Louis Vuitton has used its own line of signature — LV stamped — golden brass hardware since If the answer is yes , the bag might be authentic, but, if the answer is no , the bag might still be authentic.

If you see one of these names etched onto the back of a zipper, then check the date code. If it is a pre bag, the branded zippers might actually be evidence of its authenticity. All engravings on the hardware should be completely flawless.

Contrary to popular belief, Louis Vuitton handbags excluding luggage and rare limited edition pieces do not have serial numbers.

Rather, Louis Vuitton handbags have "date codes" stamped date on interior tags or directly on the interior linings.

Keep in mind that the fact that an item has a date code does not guarantee that it's authentic since many counterfeit items have date codes. A valid and properly stamped date code is just one of many parameters that are checked to guarantee the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton dafe. Authentic Louis Vuitton handbags with alcantara linings may have date codes that are very hard to read or have disappeared altogether.

This is sometimes the case for older bags or if the bags have had their linings cleaned. For a more in-depth dats about date codes, Yoogi's has put together a complete guide to all things Louis Vuitton date codes.
