"Longchamp Le Pliage Tote" Fake or Authentic?

(Picture No. 1) Comes with the dust bag, the little card and the Longchamp Le Pliage 

Name: Longchamp Le Pliage "Shopping"
Type of Bag: Tote
Size: Small
Handle: Long
Color: Orange
Material: Water resistant Nylon

I ordered this online and just arrived today. I never used the bag yet. I bought it like 45% off from it's original price amounting to $125. So I am wondering if it's authentic or fake or a good copy.
Let me show you the images of the tote.

(Picture No. 2) The dimensions are the same

(Picture No. 3) They said you have to watch out at the spelling, some fakes "G" look likes "C"
So as you look at the pic its "G". And there's one thing,
the number nine suppose to look just like at the pic not this one "9"..

(Picture No. 4) If you see the "YKK" & "T".. its authentic!

(Picture No. 5) They said that the authentic longchamp, the leather should have
a cognac color and you can see some dark spots in there.
So its probably authentic! If you notice it.

(Picture No. 6) The leather should have diagonal lines.

(Picture No. 7) Suppose to have like that! I don't know how its called. (interior)

(Picture No. 8) Original Prym 6/4 B

(Picture No. 9) there's 45 at the zipper. I dont know if you can see that.

(Picture No. 10) Here's another one. I dont know how its called. Should have like that at the
pocket and interior this one is on the pocket

(Picture No. 11) The handles should be flat as they said. I think mine is flat.

(Picture No. 12) For the lighter color of Longchamp Le Pliage the interior is white
For the darker color of Le Pliage the interior is black.

(Picture No. 13) The tag inside.. I guess this is the style number

(Picture No. 14) Long Handle approximately it has 8 inches drop

(Picture No. 15) That's the back..
The leather should be smooth. The stitching should be perfect. The nylon should be not that reflecting when its expose to sunlight. The inside should be kinda rubbery feeling when you touch it.

I am still doubting about the bag because of its price it is so cheap almost 50% off when I bought it. They promised me that it comes from the factory itself (Longchamp) and I've read something, somewhere and the seller also claimed its authentic from the factory, and they also stated why its cheap because they probably the imperfect one and the factory dispose it. For example the stitches, scratch probably or blabla.. etc..

They may be right because when I looked at my bag there is some imperfection about it. See picture 5, you can see the stitch is hanging or not cut (but i can work with that).. The second one, i found that there is some kinda black color from the handle.. See picture below...

(Picture No. 16) See the encircle.. That's what I'm talking about.

And I am also worried about the style number (Pic no. 13), I dont get it some blog I've read (How to spot a fake longchamp) referring to the style number it doesn't match. I don't know or I just probably didn't get it?

Overall, I like the bag, it is authentic I believe and there's nothing to worry about it. The little thing is the 2 imperfections about the tote. It doesn't bother me or anything and the price is really good. I paid it for $ 68.75 (shipping and handling fee to Philippines not included "priority mail") plus the waiting for the bag to arrive it took more than a week or less.? I dont even remember. All I remember now is I have the Bag!!!

I am totally happy with it.! If you're interested to ask where do I buy my bag or which website just comment.

If you have any questions and suggestions or even comments. Just leave a message below.! Thanks!
Have a great day!
