In this guide, we’re talking about all the hoodies of:

  • CPFM – Cactus Plant Flea Market
  • Ye (Kanye West) x Kid Cudi
  • KSG – Kids See Ghosts

Every step in this guide is designed to work for all models and colorways.

Let’s go.

How to spot a fake CPFM hoodie

The #1 way to spot a fake CPFM hoodie is to check the print. Authentic hoodies must have thick, puffy letters that come out of the fabric.

1. Print

CPFM Hoodie Puffiness
  • Authentic: Thick, 3D-looking letters.
  • Fake: Letters are just printed and don’t stick out of the hoodie.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert CPFM authenticators take a look at your hoodie:

2. Wash tag

CPFM Hoodie Wash Tag
  • Authentic: Correct format.
  • Fake: Wrong style of wash tag.

In fact, replica manufacturers sometime swap the CPFM wash tags with ESSENTIALS hoodies.

Then we end up with fakes looking like this.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Neck tag

Most of you are here for Ye’s collaboration with CPFM, and there are two different styles of neck tags.

Let’s check them out one by one.

3.1. Kids See Ghosts

You’ll find this one on the “Lucky Me I See Ghosts” hoodie.

CPFM Hoodie Neck Tag
  • Authentic: All letters have the same amount of space between.
  • Fake: Too much space between “K” and I”.

3.2. Ye Must Be Born Again

CPFM Hoodie Neck Print
  • Authentic: Thick, yet clear print — easier to read.
  • Fake: Thicker, almost illegible letters.

4. Spacing

CPFM Hoodie Spacing
  • Authentic: Pointed letters are have more distance in-between.
  • Fake: Pointed letters are too close to each other.
