  • Created by Young Thug, Sp5der is a relatively new brand…
  • Though fakes are already out there.

Afraid of fake SP5DER? We’ll teach you how to steer away from reps.

How to Legit Check a SP5DER Hoodie

The neck tag is the #1 indicator to look for when legit checking SP5DER hoodies. Fakes often have thinner inscriptions.

1. Neck tag

Authentic vs fake Sp5der comparison of the neck tag
  • Authentic: Thicker letters — they’re also closer to each other.
  • Fake: Thinner characters, also with too much space between each other.

For the spacing issue, look at the word “COLD” and see how the fake hoodie spells ” C O L D”.

That’s just one spot.

Spend a few seconds looking in other spots and you’ll notice this issue further.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert SP5DER authenticators take a look at your hoodie:

2. Print

Sp5der Hoodie Fake Vs Real Print
  • Authentic: Thin letters that don’t come out of the hoodie.
  • Fake: Very thick, 3D-looking letters.

Legit inscriptions are printed — they don’t need to come out of the fabric.

3. Lettering

  • Authentic: Thick letters — the “m” is almost illegible.
  • Fake: Very thin letters in “heres the slime”.

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. Size tag
