Our guide works for any model x colorway.

How to tell the difference between real and fake Amiri jeans

You can tell the difference between real and fake Amiri jeans by looking at the wash tags. Fake Amiri jeans always have thinner text.


1. Wash tag

1.1. Real vs fake comparsion

  • The fake jeans have the “A M I R I” logo at the top looking too big and too thick.
    • The authentic Amiri jeans have the same “A M I R I” logo thinner.
  • The counterfeit jeans have their “98% COTTON/2% ELASTANE” lines of text at the wrong font weight.
    • The replica Amiri jeans have their letters, numbers and characters too thin.
  • The “MATERIALS FROM ITALY” lines of text are yet again too thick.
    • Back to the genuine Amiri jeans, you can see how their “MATERIALS FROM ITALY” lines of text are also thinner than the ones on the fake pair’s wash tag.
  • The “ÉTAIS-UNIS” text (translates as “United States” in French) is too thin.
    • The real pair’s text is thicker than the one on the fake pair.

Finding it too hard? Reach out to our Amiri experts:

1.2. Authentic example #1

In the image above, we’ve highlighted only another authentic example of the Amiri jeans and their wash tag that comes from the same collection.

1.3. Authentic example #2

Below, you can see another authentic example of the Amiri jeans, this time coming from another popular authentic release, yet the material’s inscription that the replica jeans don’t really have these wash tags.

The only difference between the image with the genuine Amiri jeans from above and the two other pictures from further above in the guide is that these jeans are made 100% out of cotton.

2. Wasit tag

  • The fake Amiri jeans have their “AMIRI” text really thick.
  • The “SIZE 34” text on the fake jeans is too thick as well.

The genuine jeans have their text a bit faded out, but even if it was to its fullest colour-filling and without being faded-out, the genuine jeans would have pretty much the same thickness, therefore still being thinner than the fake pair’s “SIZE 34” text.

Also, keep in mind that not all of the genuine, nor not all of the fake items will have the “SIZE XX” text right below the “AMIRI” text.

Don’t worry if your pair misses the size text.

3. Rear patch

  • The fake Amiri jeans have their “AMIRI” text logo once again at the wrong thickness.
  • The “AMIRI” text looks too thick, while the authentic pair has the same “AMIRI” text thinner.

4. Buttons

  • The Amiri jeans have their text at the wrong thickness, once again.
  • The text on the fake jeans is visibly thicker than the real engraving.

So, looking at the authentic Amiri jeans, you can see how their “AMIRI” text is thinner than the fake pair’s text.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

5. Extra label

If your jeans don’t have this tag along with them, no worries. This is not really something to focus on at all, as the details on the actual jeans matter, rather than the label that comes next to them.

  • The replica label has the “AMIRI” text at the wrong thickness: it is too thick.
  • The counterfeit Amiri jeans also have their “AMIRI” text looking really boxy.

On the other hand, the authentic Amiri jeans have their “AMIRI” inscription looking way thinner than the one on the fake jeans.

6. Distressing

As you may know, the Amiri jeans are popular for their distressing, as they have this sort of unique style that’s trendy in the streetwear scene.

6.1. Real vs fake comparison

In the image with the real vs fake Amiri jeans above:

  • The replica Amiri jeans have their distressing looking more hand-made rather than the authentic jeans’ distressing
  • Looking at the genuine jeans, it is observable how the distressing looks more natural.

Of course, neither the genuine nor the replica Amiri jeans would need to have their distressing done by actually cutting them anyhow else rather than in a hand-made method.

The difference is that the fake jeans have their distressing looking too little natural and too much hand-made.

6.2. Fake example

Now, let’s have a look at another image where we’ve highlighted only a flaw on the fake Amiri jeans, related to the distressing.

  • The distressing has a different colour than white.
  • The fake jeans are too yellowy, having a different shade from the genuine Amiri distressing.

Shortlist: Legit check Amiri jeans in 30 seconds

  1. Verify the wash tags inside your Amiri jeans, as most of the fake jeans have their wash tags’ text at the wrong thickness
  2. Look at the waist side’s interior label. Most of the replica Amiri jeans have their text on that label looking too thick.
  3. Check the text on the label on the exterior side of your jeans, on the rear side, and above the right side’s pocket. Mostly, the fake jeans have their “AMIRI” text too thick.
  4. Examine the text on the buttons of your Amiri jeans, since most of the fake pairs have their text too thick.
  5. Inspect the extra narrow and long label’s “AMIRI” text, and look out for any font-weight flaws.
  6. Brief the distressing on your Amiri jeans, as most of the fake pairs have their distressing looking too little natural, and sometimes they are improperly shaded.

The 6 real vs fake Amiri jeans steps outlined above are well-detailed and it will be time demanding to perform each authentication step when you need to confirm the originality of your Amiri jeans.
