Our team prepared a new guide for you: Off-White Mona Lisa real vs fake.

This guide works all items with the Mona Lisa print.

This means all Off-White clothes: tees, shirts, crewnecks, hoodies, and others.

How to spot fake Off White Mona Lisa

Consider the neck tag as the most reliable point of reference when authenticating the Off White Mona Lisa.

Replica makers always struggle to replicate it accurately.

1. Neck tag

Shortlist: Legit check your Off-White Mona Lisa

If you’re in a hurry or purchasing online, use these top indicators to quickly authenticate Off White Mona Lisa:

  1. Rear “X” Logo: On fake items, this logo typically appears too small.
  2. Mona Lisa’s Portrait: Fakes often have a yellow tint to the portrait, with a print so small that Mona’s hands aren’t visible at the bottom. Additionally, counterfeit items usually lack the scotch lines at the top and bottom of the portrait.
  3. “TEMPERATURE” Text: This text often looks too thick and curvy on fake items.
  4. Neck Tag: Counterfeit products tend to have inferior stitching quality with text placed too close to the left and right edges of the neck tag.
  5. Wash Tags: Check for appropriate stitching at the top of the tags and ensure the black and white lines are the correct size.
  6. Text on Wash Tag: The text shouldn’t be too small or too thick. Fake items often have overly thick Arabian text.
  7. White Lines on Sleeves: These lines are typically too large on counterfeit items.
