We’re here to help you legit check Gallery Dept sweats — we have a Gallery Dept Shirt legit check guide as well.

For now, let’s stick with the sweatpants.

How to spot fake Gallery Dept pants

The best fake indicator for Gallery Dept pants is the “ART ON DISPLAY” tag. Thick inscriptions always reveal reps.

1. Art on Display

Gallery Dept Real Vs Fake: ART ON DISPLAY
  • Authentic: Thick, solid inscriptions for “JOSUÉ THOMAS” as well.
  • Fake: Text is way too thin.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our Gallery Dept experts take a look at your clothes:

2. Print

Two common styles: “GALLERY DEPT.” or “DEPT DE LA GALERIE”. This step applies to both.

Gallery Dept Fake Vs Real Pants - Print
  • Authentic: Text has the correct font – Helvetica Bold Condensed.
  • Fake: Wrong font, never used on any authentic sweatpants.

3. Wash tag

Also known as the ‘orange tag’.

Gallery Dept Wash Tag Comparison - Real Vs Fake
  • Authentic: Clean stitching + thin text.
  • Fake: Stitching is wild at the top + text is too thick.

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.

4. Waist tag

Fake VS Real Gallery Dept Logos
  • Authentic: Basically just thinner inscriptions.
  • Fake: The dot is too small and the “Y” is too thick.

What material are Gallery Dept sweatpants?

Gallery Dept sweatpants are made from a high-quality, heavyweight cotton blend.

This material choice ensures both comfort and durability, making them ideal for both casual wear and fashion statements.

1. Standard Sweatpants

  • Cotton-jersey: This is the most common material used in Gallery Dept’s standard sweatpants. It’s a soft and comfortable fabric, often washed for a vintage feel. (e.g., GALLERY DEPT. Tapered Logo-Print Cotton-Jersey)
  • Fleece-back cotton: This is a thicker and warmer version of cotton-jersey, with a soft, fluffy interior. (e.g., GD PAINTED FLARE SWEATPANT)

2. Unique Styles

  • Denim: Some styles incorporate denim panels for a unique look. (e.g., GD PAINTED FLARE SWEATPANT)
  • Coated fabric: The “ANALOG SWEATPANT” features a special coating that gives the appearance of leather while maintaining the comfort of sweatpants.
