To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt is by checking the text on the wash tags. The counterfeit CH tees always have their printed characters at the wrong thickness, as the 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.
Thinking of how to spot fake Chrome Hearts t-shirts? You don’t want to get scammed with a fake CH tee?
If that’s true, then no need to worry, as 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.
This way, hopefully by the end of the guide you are going to know everything there is to be known on spotting Chrome Hearts t-shirts.
The Chrome Hearts tee authenticity check process begins with the wash tags because as we’ve said before, we like to believe that the wash tag is the very best way to authenticate Chrome Hearts t-shirts.
In the image with the authentic vs fake Chrome Hearts t-shirts above, you can see how the fake item has four flaws, and on top of that, the first flaw is visible in two spots.
1 – You can see how both the “CHROME” and the “HEARTS” text on the fake CH tee’s wash tag is 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 in-between the numbers.
Moving forward to the second method of the guide on how to legit check Chrome Hearts tees, we are now going to look at these t-shirts for their barcodes inside the wash tags.
As always, let’s first check the real vs replica Chrome Hearts tee image below, and after that, we’ll make it all clear.
This image with the authentic vs fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt above points out three flaws on the fake tee, as well as three counterparts on the real one.
First of all, looking at 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”.
As for the genuine Chrome Hearts tee, you can see how its “RN# 95024” text looks a tad bit thicker than the fake one.
Moving on, the “Ch” main logo on the wash tag is too thick on the fake wash tag, as the sticks which craft the letters are way too wide, and on the other hand, the same “Ch” text logo on the real wash tag is thinner and with the sticks being narrower.
Lastly, you can see how the numbers below the barcode look way too thin on the fake item. This can be the 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.
For the third and also the last way of the guide on how to spot a fake Chrome Hearts t-shirt, we are going to talk about the text on the neck tag of these t-shirts.
As you can see in the picture with the authentic vs replica Chrome Hearts t-shirt above, the fake tee’s flower and the letters tend to look too thick.
Yes, the authentic t-shirt’s letters are indeed cracked more or less in some places but leaving that aside, you can see how the fake tee’s text is noticeably thicker than the real text, which is thinner.
At the same time, if you look at the registered trademark “®” symbol on the fake CH tee, you can notice how its “®” character is too small, and how the real one is thicker.
