This is the #1 legit check guide for Balmain tees.

Let’s begin

How to tell if your Balmain t-shirt is fake or real

You can tell if you have a real or fake Balmain t-shirt judging by the wash tag’s inscriptions. If they are very slim or use bolded font, then you 100% have a fake.

1. Wash tag

Since no replica has the correct inscriptions on the wash tags, we are going to link an example of how the authentic wash tags must look like, and then, a collage of how the fake items have their wash tags.

As you can see in the image above, we have pictured an example of an authentic Balmain logo t-shirt’s wash tag, having each detail on point – all of the prints have the same font-weight and amount of space between the characters.

Let’s have a look at another release of the Balmain logo t-shirt’s wash tag, on both the front and the rear sides.

Once again, in the image above you can see the front and the rear side of an authentic Balmain logo t-shirt’s wash tags, having all of the characters correctly font-weighted and spaced between.

As you can see, the wash tag in the image above says that it was made in Portugal. Below, we have linked another authentic Balmain logo tee wash tag example, this time made in France, since there were also made authentic products.

Lastly, looking at the image above, you can see how the “MADE IN FRANCE” version of this item also has its letters perfectly printed on the wash tag.

Now, let’s have a look at how the replica Balmain t-shirts often have their wash tag’s inscriptions with the help of the following image.

  • The fake wash tags do not compare to the authentic ones, as the fake items have different inscriptions on the wash tags.
  • The fake Balmain logo t-shirts also have their text scratched, which is something that you’ll never see on the legit pieces.

Therefore, if you see a Balmain logo t-shirt with the inscriptions as above, you are looking at a fake item.

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

2. Neck tag

  • The fake t-shirt has its hang tag’s text looking too thin.
  • The fake item has the text inside the rectangle using a different font than the one used to print the text on the legit item.
  • The fake tee also has its letters in the “BALMAIN” text improperly spaced between.
  • The letter “B” is placed too far away from the rest of the letters.
  • The fake item has its whole text looking too thick inside the rectangle, while the legit piece has its text thinner.

3. Front logo

  • The fake item has its “BALMAIN” text improperly spaced between the letters “A” and “L”, as they are placed a bit too close to each other.
  • Regarding the “N”, you can see how the fake Balmain tee has its letter too big and thick.
  • As for the “PARIS” text, the fake item has its letters using a different font.
  • The word “PARIS” is also too thick on the fake Balmain t-shirt.

On the other hand, the authentic Balmain logo tee has its letters placed a bit further away from each other.

Shortlist: Legit check Balmain t-shirts in 30 seconds

  1. Check the wash tag of your Balmain logo tee. Mostly, the fake Balmain items have the wrong inscriptions on their wash tags, not matching the ones seen on the authentic pieces. On top of that, the fake Balmain items commonly have their text on the wash tag scratched and worn off
  2. Verify the neck tag of your item. Usually, the fake Balmain tees have their text on the neck tag looking too thick
  3. Check the front “BALMAIN PARIS” text. Most of the time, the fake Balmain t-shirts have their text improperly spaced between (as the letters are placed too close to each other), using a different font and also being either too thick or too thin

There are situations, where you may be unable to go through each detailed step, explained above when you need to authenticate your Balmain logo tee.

That is why we have compiled this quick 30 seconds solution to authenticating your sneakers.
