You don’t want to get scammed with a replica Balenciaga hoodie? Wondering whether you have a fake or a real Balenciaga BB logo hoodie?
Well, if that’s true, then welcome to our guide that will teach you everything you need to know in order to spot fake Balenciaga hoodies.
This guide brings you information on how to spot a fake Balenciaga hoodie with reference real vs fake Balenciaga hoodie images, which will help you visualise what the best fakes look like, as well as what the genuine items look like.
To put it shortly, to spot a fake Balenciaga hoodie, you’ll have to look at the wash tags and at the neck tag. Fake Balenciaga hoodies always use lower quality materials which give the inscriptions either a thicker or a thinner look than the same inscriptions seen on the authentic hoodies.

A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
On the other hand, you can see how the authentic hoodie’s size medium “M” inscription looks way thicker and more defined than the fake hoodie’s thin text.
On the opposite side, the authentic Balenciaga hoodie’s “BALENCIAGA” text has less space in between its characters, so, its kerning is lower than the fake hoodie’s.
One other flaw on the fake tag is that on the right side of the white label, the text says “BALENCIAOA”, when it should say “BALENCIAGA” – this is something never to be seen on genuine labels.
In case that wasn’t clear, here are the flaws on the fake label from above:
1. The white label is placed on the front side of the tag, when it should be on the rear side.
2. The “BALENCIAOA” text should actually be spelt as “BALENCIAGA”
Not all Balenciaga hoodies are printed. Some authentic Balenciaga hoodie models are printed, while others are stitched.
