How to legit check a Gallery Dept shirt

The best way to legit check a Gallery Dept shirt is to look at the orange label for thin stitches and very bolded inscriptions.

These are two of the biggest signs of a fake GALLERY DEPT. shirt.

1. Orange label

  • Authentic:
    • Stitching is thicker
    • Text logo is thinner
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is too thin
    • “GALLERY DEPT.®” is too thick

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

2. Made in USA

You’ll find this little tab with “MADE IN USA” + the size of your tee next to the neck tag.

  • Authentic: “MADE IN USA” is thinner.
  • Fake: “MADE IN USA” is too thick.

3. Print

  • Authentic: Thinner “G”, and less curvy “R” at the bottom.
  • Fake: “G” is too thick, and the bottom of “R” is too curvy.

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. Attention

Gallery Dept Fake Vs Real Attention Tag
  • Authentic: Thicker, more solid text.
  • Fake: All of the text is too thin.

On a side note, see how “TT” in “ATTENTION” are connected on the real tee.

The fake letters “T” are not connected — there’s a gap in the middle.

5. Neck tag

  • Authentic: Thicker, shorter stitches — generally boxier.
  • Fake: Stitching is too thin and long.
