To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Dsquared2 Icon hats is by checking the label inside the hat that inform you how to wash the item. The replica Dsquared2 hats always have their text there at the wrong thickness and always improperly spaced in-between the letters. You will always see the real Dsquared2 hats being properly detailed, with no such flaws.

Trying to figure out how to spot fake Dsquared2 ICON hats? Afraid of getting scammed with a fake Dsquared2 hat?

If so, then no need to worry anymore. We’ve got you covered with this ultimate authentic vs fake Dsquared2 hat legit check guide that will show you all you need to know when authenticating these hats.

One thing that we’d like to mention before we begin is that this real vs fake Dsquared2 Icon hat guide applies to every colourway of the Icon hat.

How to tell if a Dsquared2 hat is fake

1. Wash tag

  • The fake hat’s inscriptions are too big, too thin and with too much space in between the characters.
  • The characters on the real wash tags are smaller, thicker and placed closer to each other than the fake ones.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Dsquared2 authenticators:

2. Dsquared2 label

If you look at the real vs fake Dsquared2 Icon hat image above, you can notice how the fake hat’s “DSQUARED2” text is too thin, and how the real hat’s text is thicker.

At the same time, the fake letters are improperly stitched into the label. In fact, if you look at the bottom right side of the letter “S”, you can see how it is a square instead of being perfectly round as the real letter which is properly stitched into the letter.

3. Back logo

  • Almost every replica hat has its text improperly curved all around the hat.
  • See how the fake hat’s text has started well on the left side, but to the right side, the text is too far away from the curve of the hat.

On the other hand, the real hat’s text arches perfectly together with the hat, as it doesn’t fold away as the fake inscription.

In the image above you can see more of a precise explanation of how the fake hat’s text is curved and how it goes crooked on the right side.


  • The fake Dsquared2 cap’s text is improperly stitched into the hat.
  • The fake hat’s text is wrongly stitched as there are many empty spots where there should be threads.
  • You can see the hand-emoji pointers above showing you these spots.

Looking at the genuine hat, it is visible how all of the threads are perfectly attached to the hat, as there are no empty spots like the fake ones.

Shortlist: How to tell if a Dsquared2 hat is fake

  1. Examine the wash tag on your hat. Fake Dsquared2 Icon hats often have text that is too big, thin, and unevenly spaced between letters.
  2. Check the “DSQUARED2” label inside the hat. Fake hats usually have thin text.
  3. Check the curvature of the “DSQUARED2” text at the back of the hat. Many fake Dsquared2 Icon hats have improperly positioned and wrongly arched text on the back.
  4. Verify the “ICON” text on the front of the hat. Fake hats often have gaps in the text where there should be threads.

The detailed steps outlined above for distinguishing between authentic and counterfeit Dsquared2 hats may not be practical when you’re short on time or making online purchases.
