You can spot a fake Supreme Bandana box logo hoodie or t-shirt by checking the wash tag. Fakes always have thinner inscriptions that are also improperly spaced between.
Let’s check it out!
1. Wash tag
Authentic: The stitching on the top of the wash tag is connected and wavy.
Fake: The stitching tends to be disconnected and is usually straight rather than wavy.
1.2. Trademark ®
Authentic: The letter “R” inside the circle is sized appropriately, not touching the edges of the circle.
Fake: The “R” is too large, making contact with the top and bottom edges of the circle.
1.3. Care instructions
Authentic: The text and line below it are thinner and smaller.
Fake: Both the text and the line are too big and too thick.
1.4. Middle text
Authentic: The text is thinner and smaller in dimensions.
Fake: The text is significantly thicker and larger.
1.5. RN 101837
Authentic: The text appears to use a consistent, accurate font.
Fake: The font is different, most noticeably in the numbers, especially the number 1.
1.6. Washing at 30°
Authentic: The degree symbol (°) is appropriately sized.
Fake: The degree symbol is thinner.
1.7. Made in Canada
Authentic: The text size is appropriately small.
Fake: The text is significantly larger in height.
If your item says “90% COTTON / 10% POLYESTER,” that doesn’t mean it’s fake.
Authentic: There are legit items with either “100% COTTON” or “90% COTTON / 10% POLYESTER” as the material composition.
This is an authentic Supreme hoodie saying says “90% COTTON / “10% POLYESTER”.
2. Box logo
2.1. Stitching: “S”
Authentic: The letter “S” is uniformly stitched and is thinner at the bottom.
Fake: The “S” is noticeably thicker at the bottom and possibly in the middle curves.
2.2. Spacing: “Su”
Authentic: Adequate space exists between the letters “S” and “u.”
Fake: The space between “S” and “u” is less than on the authentic piece.
2.3. Spacing: “up”
Authentic: There’s more spacing between “u” and “p.”
Fake: The space between these two letters is less compared to the authentic item.
2.4. Shape: “p”
Authentic: The circle in the “p” has fewer stitches, making it look thinner and wider.
Fake: The circle is noticeably thicker, particularly at the top-right corner.
2.5. Thickness: “e”
Authentic: The stitching weight of the letter “e” is consistent with the other letters.
Fake: The letter “e” appears to be way thicker than it should be, disrupting the uniformity.
2.6. Placement: “m”
Authentic: The legs of the letter “m” are properly stitched and straight.
Fake: The legs are incorrectly angled and not straight.
Note: Authentic Supreme Bandana Box Logos maintain consistent font weights across all letters, something that fakes commonly fail to achieve.
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.
Authentic: On genuine items, the letters “S” and “u” appear to be slightly lower, such that they touch the drawn baseline.
Additionally, all three legs of the letter “m” are placed just a bit above this line.
Fake: Conversely, on the counterfeit items, the letters “S” and “u” sit a little higher, such that they float above the baseline.
Furthermore, the first leg of the letter “m” is too close to the baseline, almost touching it.
4. Neck tag
4.1.1. Supreme box logo
Authentic: The letters in the authentic Supreme Bandana item’s box logo are more robust.
Fake: The counterfeit item’s letters look too thin, notably less substantial than those on genuine items. Additionally, the letters have incorrect spacing; they are too far apart compared to the genuine version.
4.1.2. Trademark Symbol
Authentic: The trademark symbol (®) on authentic items is well-proportioned. The letter “R” within the circle doesn’t touch the edges.
Fake: The counterfeit’s ® symbol is both too large and too thick. Moreover, the “R” touches the edges of the circle, which is not the case with genuine items.
4.1.3. Middle text
We also highlight a difference in the “PRE-SHRUNK” text and the 2-3 lines of text that typically appear below it on the neck tag.
Authentic: The text on genuine items is sharp and well-defined.
Fake: On counterfeit items, this text appears to be thicker and boxier, which is a clear indicator of a fake item.
Authentic: Even though there’s some variance in retail items, authentic Supreme Bandana Box Logo tags will never be so close that they touch each other.
Fake: In counterfeit items, you may find that the two tags are placed too closely, even to the point where they touch, which is a clear sign of a fake item.
5. Side tag
Authentic: In genuine Supreme Bandana Box Logo items, the “Supreme” text on the side tag of the hoodie is centered both vertically and horizontally.
This precise placement is a hallmark of Supreme’s attention to detail in their products.
Fake: Counterfeit Supreme Bandana Box Logo items often exhibit inconsistencies in the placement of the “Supreme” text on the side tag.
In these cases, the text may be improperly placed too high or too low on the tag, deviating from the meticulous alignment found on authentic items.
Shortlist: Authenticate your Supreme Bandana box logo
Examine the wash tags on your Supreme Bandana Box Logo item. Fakes often have inconsistent font weights and mispositioned stitches.
Inspect the lettering on the front logo. Counterfeits frequently display misshapen and incorrectly weighted letters.
Assess the letter placement on the box logo. On replicas, letters might be positioned too high or too low.
Analyze the neck tag. Fake tags typically have tabs too close together, with mispositioned and poorly weighted letters.
Check the Supreme logo’s positioning on the side. It should be centered; fakes often misalign it on the label.
