To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Chrome Hearts t-shirts is by checking the text on the wash tags. Fake CH tees always have their printed characters at the wrong thickness — fake wash tags tend to have their text too thick or too thin.

All of the genuine Chrome Hearts t-shirts have their text at the same correct font weight which never compares to the worse quality of the fakes.

Though, this is just a short way to answer your question…

For the detailed answer, we’ve got you covered with this ultimate real vs fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt authentication guide.

All you need to do is read along and follow the fake vs real Chrome Hearts images that are going to be attached to each step.

We’ve also got a Chrome Hearts hoodie legit check guide.

Hopefully, by the end of the guide, you are going to know everything there is to be known about spotting Chrome Hearts t-shirts.

How to tell if a Chrome Hearts t-shirt is real or fake

You can tell if a Chrome Hearts t-shirt is real or fake by checking the wash tags, as fake tees always have thicker prints. An authentic Chrome Hearts t-shirt’s quality stands out from a fake.

Let’s see the comparison!

1. Wash tag

1 – You can see how both the “CHROME” and the “HEARTS” text on the fake CH tee’s wash tag are too thick and how the letters are as bold as they are too little legible.

On the other hand, the authentic Chrome Hearts t-shirts have their “CHROME HEARTS” text looking thinner and more readable than the text seen on the fake wash tag.

2 – The fake item has its “BODY:” inscription looking too thin and too narrow, while the authentic tee’s text is thicker and actually wider than the fake one.

3 – Up next, the third flawed inscription on the fake item is the “COTON” inscription, and on the fake tee, it looks too narrow, while yet again, the legit tee’s text is wider.

4 – The last flaw on the fake item’s wash tag is about pretty much every “100%” inscription.

Looking at the fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt’s “100%” inscriptions, you can notice how these characters are too thick and how the numbers are placed too close to each other.

The real tee’s text is exactly the opposite: it is thinner, and there’s more space between the numbers.


Finding it too hard? Check it with our Chrome Hearts experts:

2. Barcode tag

  • The “RN# 95024” text looks too thin on the fake tee.
    • This can be the most noticeable if you look at the numbers “2” and “4”.
    • The real “RN# 95024” text looks a tad bit thicker than the fake one.
  • The main “Ch” logo on the wash tag is too thick on the fake wash tag.
    • The legs making the letters are way too wide.
  • The numbers below the barcode look way too thin on the fake item.
    • Most noticeable if you look at the “0 12 –” inscription.

On the other hand, the real t-shirt’s inscriptions below the barcode look thicker and way better defined, since they have a stronger font weight than the fake CH tee’s text there.

3. Neck tag

  • The fake tee’s flower logo and letters are too thick.
  • The “®” character is too small and thin on the fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt.

The authentic t-shirt’s letters are indeed cracked more or less in some places due to wear. Leaving wear aside, you can still see how the fake tee’s text is noticeably thicker than the real text, which is thinner.

Shortlist: Legit check Chrome Hearts tees in 30 seconds

  1. Examine the text on the wash tags of your CH tee. Most of the fake items have their text improperly font-weighted and kerned in-between the characters
  2. Look at the wash tag with the barcode. The replica Chrome Hearts t-shirts tend to have their text there badly font-weighted
  3. Analyze the neck tag. The fake CH tees’ neck tags have their text often looking too thick

The 3 detailed real vs fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt steps outlined above might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy the item online.

That is why we have compiled this quick 30 seconds solution to authenticating your Chrome Hearts t-shirt logo.
