The Overall Look Method
Like always, let's start with an overall look method.
First thing that we need to take a closer look at is the shape of the backpack and the measurements.
The replica seems to be larger than the authentic one, when it is supposed to be smaller and rounder.
The handle loop of the authentic backpack is larger than the fake one, which to be honest, looks very asymmetrical as the bag is much larger than the handle loop.
A few words have to be said about the pocket too, which is very weirdly and asymmetrically shaped on the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini replica, it is also larger than it is supposed to be. The pocket on the authentic model is smaller, less bulky and very cute looking too.
The black tag on the pocket is also supposed to be smaller on the replica.
The Backsides Method
Now let's compare backsides.
First thing we want you to pay attention to is how the stitching forms four different sections; The two sections in the middle are larger than the ones on the sides and this detail clearly has been missed by the replica factories as all of the sections are equal.
The stitching is not very symmetrically done too.
The Sides Method
In these pictures the difference in the leather appears the most: As you can see the fake leather has much more of a textured look which makes the print look less defined, while the authentic model surface looks pretty even.
The original print has a more defined look, while the fake is pretty washed-out and faded.
The fake Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini is wider and the stitching goes sideways when it is supposed to be straight like shown on the left picture.
The Bottom Sides Method
Similarly to the backside, the bottom is also sectioned.
Authentic stitches are very straight and even while they are very carelessly made on the fake model.
It also has to be said that the fake bottom is much bulkier than the original one.
Print has a washed-out look too.

The Puller Method
The hardware is always something challenging for replica factories to copy, as it is super easy to make golden colored hardware to look toy-like.
Even though they did a pretty ok job in this case, it looks completely different from the authentic puller.
The authentic one has more of a squared shape, while the fake is more rounder and smaller. LV logo should be the same color as the background, which detail was totally missed by the off-brand.
The Handle Attachments Method
Similarly to the pullers, the handle attachments were poorly copied as the color was mistakenly chosen as well as the measurements were not successfully copied.
The LV logo is supposed to be larger like shown on the left picture.
The LV Tag Method
The Louis Vuitton tag on the top picture is so well blended in with the background that it is hard to tell them apart, while the fake tag is very bulky and shiny, when it is supposed to be matte.
The letters are also supposed to be smaller and spacings between the lines should be smaller too.
The Signature Tag Method
We had to say a few words about the black tag attached to a pocket.
As mentioned in the first method, the original one is much smaller than the replica. Leathers used in these two cases are totally different from each other, as the surface of the replica is pretty smooth, when it is supposed to have lines all over.
Louis Vuitton signature has to be exactly in the middle like shown on the upper picture.
The Serial Number Method
This is the last method we will be talking about for today.
By looking at the serial number you can find out where your backpack was made.
If you look at the timetable attached down below, you will find that the initials "CA" belongs to Spain, which means that the backpack was made in Spain.
The replica tag has "FL" written on it, which means that it was made in the USA.
The locations vary from model to model and this is not the difference, but the way the tag was made.
The letters and numbers are very large and bold on the upper picture, while they are very thin and almost hard to see on the replica tag.
Overall, the tag is supposed to be larger on the fake model.
As you can see the comparison of Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini fake VS real might not be hard if you know where to look for the flaws.
