With all of this being said, let’s move on to the proper real vs fake Bape College printing legit check guide.
The quickest way to spot fake Bape College printed items is to look at the wash and the neck tags’ quality of printing.
Most of the time, the replica Bape manufacturers manage to flaw the text on the wash and the neck tags due to the poor quality and the improper materials used.
As we said previously, the wash tag is the top indicator when you want to spot the real vs fake Bape College items.
After all, that’s why we are going to check the wash tags on the real vs fake Bape College items first.
In the fake vs real Bape College printing image above, we have pointed out two main flaws on the two wash tags.
In fact, you can see how the fake Bape College item’s wash tag has the text on the wash tag flawed in terms of font-weight.
The fake Bape College item has the wash tag at the top, saying “NOWHERE CO., LTD” and the rest of the text, looking too thin compared to the same printings on the authentic Bape College item’s wash tag, which has its text thicker.
Then, on the second wash tag (the one with all of the Japanese printings), you can see how the fake Bape College item has the text and the elements looking really thin compared to the authentic Bape College’s wash tag.
As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Bape College items, we are going to look at the real vs fake Bape College items’ neck tag – the second best factor of this guide on how to spot fake Bape College items.
In the real vs fake Bape College printing image above, we have pointed out four main flaws on the fake Bape item.
First of all, looking at the first letter “A”, you can see how the fake Bape College item has its letter looking way too curvy and thick compared to the authentic Bape College item’s letter “A”.
Then, on the “BATHING” text, you can also notice how the letter “T” is too curvy and too thick. Not only the “T”, but also the rest of the letters have the same flaw, but it is the easiest visible on the letter “T”.
Moving on to the “APE” text, you can see how the fake Bape College item has the letter “A” looking too thin on the left side of the letter, and on the right side, it looks too thick compared to the retail Bape College item.
As for the last element in the fake vs real Bape College image above, you can see how the registered trademark (R), element near the “APE” text, has the letter “R” in the circle too big as it touches the edges of the circle on the fake Bape College item.
On the other hand, the authentic Bape College item has the letter inside the circle smaller so as not to touch the edges of the circle.
Now, moving on to the arms of the real vs fake Bape College items, you can notice the little Bape logo on both the fake vs real Bape items. As always, the replica Bape has a few flaws on the arm logo too.
In the fake vs real Bape College image above, we have pointed out four main flaws on the fake Bape item which we have counted using the hand-emoji pointers and the numbers chronologically so that you’d analyze the real vs replica Bape College image easier.
The first hand-emoji pointer wants to show you how the fake Bape College item has the mouth of the Bathing Ape less curvy than the retail Ape’s mouth.
The authentic Bathing Ape’s mouth is supposed to be really curvy, just to point out the fact that the Ape is angry.
Then, the second hand-emoji pointer in the fake vs real Bape College image is supposed to show you how the fake ape has its beard looking less bumpy at the bottom, while the authentic ape’s beard is bumpier.
Then, the third hand-emoji pointer is placed at the registered trademark character, showing you how the fake symbol is too boxy and placed too low on the tag, while the authentic symbol is placed higher and is less boxy.
Lastly, the fourth pointer in the Bape fake vs real image above shows you how the stitching on the fake Bape College item is less dense and it has some extra threads hanging, which you’ll never see on the retail Bape items.
For the fourth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Bape College items, we are going to see the real vs fake Bape College’s frontal printing.
In the fake vs real Bape College image above, we have pointed out how the fake Bape College item has the letters “A” and “T” in the “BATHING” text with two bumps at the top of the letters, while all of the letters on the retail Bape College item have the same font-weight all around the letters.
Besides, you can also notice how the fake Bape’s registered trademark element has the letter “R” touching the circle, while the legit Bape item has the letter small as not to touch the circle, once again.
