1. These are the Louis Vuitton 40mm Initiales belts in monogram macassar canvas. The top two are reversible, the bottom one is not. You can immediately tell that the bottom belt is not authentic because the buckle lacks definition and is not as glossy as it should be. When it comes to the middle Louis Vuitton belt, the buckle sits too far away from the edge of the belt strap. On the authentic Louis Vuitton belt (on top), the buckle sits close to the edge of the strap and has an extremely smooth, sleek aesthetic.

There will always be a mistake that can be spotted such as: incorrectly coloured monogram prints, substandard stitching, wrong canvas texture etc.
