How to legit check a Stüssy t-shirt

Experts suggest the best way to spot a fake Stüssy t-shirt is to check the neck tag. A fake never has the right font and thickness for its letters.

1. Neck tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The letter “ü” are thinner.
    2. Letter “t” is very curved on the bottom-right leg.
    3. The “Size” text is wider.
  • Fake:
    1. Dots in “ü” are too thick.
    2. “t” isn’t curved at the bottom.
    3. “Size” is too narrow.

  • Fake: “100% COTTON” is too big and uses a different font.
