The Gucci x The North Face collaboration was quite an unexpected one, but here we are with the collaboration that took place, as well as with the replicas that hit the market.

And so, we’re here to clarify the differences between the authentic vs replica Gucci x The North Face t-shirts.

In fact, we’ve compiled this fake vs real Gucci x TNF tee legit check guide that applies to all of the colourways in which the tee was released.

Along with every step of our fake vs real Gucci x The North Face legit check guide, we are going to link images containing both the authentic and the fake tees.

These images will easily assist you in spotting the differences between the fake vs authentic Gucci TNF t-shirts.

How to spot fake Gucci x The North Face t-shirts

The best way to tell fake Gucci x The North Face t-shirts is to look at the wash tag and at the neck tag. Fake Gucci x TNF tees never have their characters properly defined, since the fake items always present font-weight flaws for their symbols.

1. Wash tag

  • The fake Gucci tee has its letters in the “GUCCI” logo too boxy.
  • In the “GUCCI” text, the fake tee has its text looking a bit too thin and also scrapped, as if it was washed out.
  • The fake “MADE IN ITALY” text looks way thinner than the real deal’s text.
  • The “FABRIC” lines of text are too thin on the fake TNF t-shirt.

2. Neck tag

  • The replica Gucci x TNF tee has the red threads at the top looking too small and too thick.
  • The fake “THE NORTH FACE” logo is too thick.
  • As for the “GUCCI” text, the replica Gucci x TNF tee has its text looking too thick.
  • The Gucci x TNF tee’s bottom stitching is too thick and big.

3. Made in Italy label

  • The overall look of the label is too thick. It is bulkier and fatter than the genuine label.
  • The fake “Made in Italy” text is too thin.

The authentic Gucci x The North Face t-shirt has its “Made in Italy” text looking thicker and more defined.

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 tab

  • The fake Gucci x TNF tee has its letter “L” on the tab looking too thick.
  • The fake tab looks too thin and oto little bulky.

5. Pink tag

  • The fake Gucci x TNF item has its “THE NORTH FACE” text in black.
  • The text should actually be lighter. The authentic text is brown instead of black.
  • The fake item’s “THE NORTH FACE” text is also too thick.

6. Front print

  • The fake tee has its “THE NORTH FACE GUCCI” text logo looking to thin.

On the other hand, the authentic item has its logos looking thicker and generally bigger than the fake item’s text.

Shortlist: How to tell fake Gucci x The North Face

  1. Review the wash tags of your Gucci x TNF tee. Often, counterfeit Gucci Belt T-Shirts display text on the wash tags that appears excessively thick or thin, with improper spacing between letters.
  2. Examine the neck tag of your Gucci x The North Face t-shirt. Typically, fake Gucci Belt T-Shirts have small and thick red threads on the neck tag. Additionally, the “G U C C I” and “THE NORTH FACE” logos may be incorrectly weighted and shaped.
  3. Inspect the “Made in Italy” tab. Fake items commonly feature a bulky tab with poorly weighted text.
  4. Check the tab indicating the size of your t-shirt. Counterfeit items often have a small, bulky tab, and the size lettering might have incorrect thickness.
  5. Observe the pink label of your tee. Replica t-shirts frequently have black-colored text instead of brown on the extra label, and the text itself might appear too thin.
  6. Validate the print on the front side. Fake pieces tend to have poorly weighted letters in the front print.

The comprehensive six-step comparison between authentic and counterfeit Gucci x TNF t-shirts mentioned earlier might not be very convenient when you’re in a rush or looking to make an online purchase.

This is precisely why we’ve put together a rapid 60-second method for verifying the authenticity of your Gucci x TNF t-shirt.
