Shortlist: Authenticate your Canada Goose Black Label
Inspect the badge on the side of your item. Counterfeit Canada Goose Black Label pieces often display incorrect text and Maple leaf thickness.
Examine the neck tag text. Fakes typically have imprecise thickness here.
Assess the badge’s stitching. On replicas, this often appears too thin.
Verify the wash tag text. Counterfeit items might show inconsistent font-weight.
Check the pull tab text at the jacket’s back. Fakes usually get the text thickness wrong.
Inspect the holographic tab near the wash tag. Fakes often have poorly attached tabs.
Look at the pocket’s text holding the wash tag. Counterfeit versions may appear too thin.
Review the “CANADA GOOSE®” text on the pocket’s handler. Replicas usually have thinner and less visible text.
Check the “CANADA GOOSE®” text on the rectangular patch. Fake items often display narrower and thinner text.
