How to spot a fake Longchamp Le Pliage Bag

The longchamp Le Pliage bag is one of the most popular bags out there, it is also one of the most copied. I hope the below tips will help you when buying your Le Pliage bag.


1. Material - A real Longchamp Le Pliage bag is made of lightweight waterproof nylon and should appear matte. A fake bag will look shiny and thick.

2. Leather Flap - An authentic Le Pliage bag is made of Russian leather and has a diamond pattern. A fake one will have a fish scale pattern. An authentic Le Pliage has the jockey logo embossed on both the leather flap and the snap. The photo one the left is a fake and the right is real.


3. Backside of leather flap - The jockey logo should be indented and you should be able to feel it by running your finger over it. The hairs should be short and it should look smooth. On a fake the hairs will be long and the flap will look hairy.
The photo on the left is real and the right a fake.


4. Stitching - the front of the leather flap will have beige stitching and the back will have brown stitching. A fake bag will have white stitching everywhere.

5. Made in China - Longchamp has outsourced most of their production of their bags to China and Tunisia. Hence, don’t be alarmed if you see that your bag is made in China.

6. The Zipper - it should be embossed with YKK and T. The zipper should say Longchamp above the jockey logo and 1948 below it. The real one will be detailed and a fake will seem to blend into itself.
