How to read Date Code Louis Vuitton bags?

All Louis Vuitton bags when produced, will be coded in order to identify the location and date of the Louis bag production. That leaves Which we call Date Code, which has both a pump on the leather and sewn to the bag In the case of a handbag Or shoulder bag But will pump to the wallet case.

The date code of Louis Vuitton has changed the format as appropriate. Which we can have a way to read the Date Code Louis Vuitton bag as follows:

Bags produced before 1980

The production at the French Company does not have a Date Code, but only tyvek-like tag
Produced at Saks Fifth Avenue. There is no Date Code but only stamps.
Produced at Fabric Design – will not have Date Code but only stamp
1980s onwards

  • 3 numbers YYM – 821 is January 1982
  • 4 numbers YYMM – 8312 is December 1983
  • 2 letters 3 numbers LL YYM – TH 863 is March 1986
  • 3 numbers 2 letters YYM LL – 865 TH is May 1986
  • 2 letters 4 numbers LL YYMM – TH 8812 is December 1988
  • 4 numbers 2 letters YYMM LL – 8910 TH is October 1989

From the year 1990 onwards, Date Code will be 2 letters, 4 numbers, with the letters representing the place of production. Numbers showing the month and year of production With the numbers 1,3 = the month at 2,4 = years, such as VI 0928 is the Louis bag that produced France in February 1998

Since 2007 – the current Date Code will be 2 letters, 4 numbers, with the letters representing the place of production. Numbers showing weeks and years of production With the numbers 1,3 = the week at 2,4 = years. For example, SP1029 is the Louis bag that produced France 12 weeks in 2009.
