Longchamp: How to Spot a Fake

Read this before proceeding...

This bag is owned by my sister. It was bought in Las Vegas, USA but Made in China. To see a Longchamp bag made in France, click here. These are photos of an original Longchamp bag. I am not claiming to be an expert. If you want to know if you bought a FAKE Longchamp bag, consult the boutique, capeesh? I DO NOT AUTHENTICATE. Let me reiterate that for your peace of mind, buy only from Longchamp boutique.
