If you are looking to learn how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, then you are in the right place.

By reading this article, we are going to let you know the best ways to spot fake Gucci hoodies.

In order to spot fake Gucci hoodies, you will have to check the hoodie that you are authenticating for seven simple spots.

Along with each step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, we are going to link reference real vs fake Gucci hoodie images so that everything will be clear and easily understandable.

How to tell if your Gucci hoodie is real or fake

You can tell if your Gucci hoodie is real or fake by inspecting the wash tag and the neck tag. A fake hoodie should have its text slanted and at the wrong font-weight, while a real one is always the same — flawless.

Gucci stands out for its high quality. Let’s learn how to legit check your hoodie!

1. Wash tag

1.1. Front

  • Fake Gucci hoodies have their inscriptions on the wash tag looking either too thick or too thin.
  • In the example above, the fake text is too thick.
  • All of the characters that we’ve pointed out present this issue.

On the other hand, all of the characters on the authentic items’ wash tag are thinner than those on the fake Gucci hoodie.

1.2. Rear

Flip your Gucci hoodie’s wash tag in order to reveal this side.

  • The fake item has its inscriptions looking too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic hoodie’s text is noticeably thicker/bolder.

Want the expert's opinion? Let our Gucci authenticators have a look:

2. Neck tag

  • The fake Gucci neck tag has its red stitches looking too thin.
  • The “G U C C I” logo is too thin on the fake hoodie.

On the other hand, the same red threads found on the authentic Gucci hoodie appear to be thinner.

Speaking of the authentic Gucci hoodie, you can see how its “GUCCI” text is thicker.

3. Made in Italy

You can find this label right below the neck tag.

  • The fake hoodie’s letters look too thick when compared to the original Gucci hoodie’s letters.
  • The fake item has its text looking too boxy.
  • On the fake Gucci hoodie, the letters look too “pixelated”, and the authentic item has its letters sharper and printed in a better manner.

An authentic Gucci hoodie has its letters on the tab looking: thinner, bigger, sharper, and more defined than the fake Gucci hoodies’ letters.

4. Rear neck tag

  • The fake hoodie has its two points of stitching looking too thin and too little dense, while the authentic item has its stitches thicker and denser.
  • For the “GUCCI” text, the fake hoodie has its stitches improperly done, as the letters are too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic item has its letters in the “GUCCI” text looking thinner than the ones on the counterfeit Gucci hoodie.

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.

5. Aglet

We’re now talking about the metal plates attached at the bottom of the strings used to tighten and loosen the hood.

  • The fake metal is too shiny. It reflects too much light.
  • The fake hoodie has its “GUCCI” text looking too thick.

6. Front print

For reference, we are going to have the classic Gucci Distressed print in the fake vs real Gucci hoodie print comparison.

  • The fake item has its “GUCCI” words from all around the rectangle looking too thick.

Speaking of the authentic Gucci hoodie, we have pointed out how the “GUCCI” text all around the rectangle is thinner than the one found on the fake item.

Shortlist: How to authenticate a Gucci hoodie

  1. Examine the wash tags of your Gucci hoodie. Fake hoodies often feature inscriptions that appear excessively thick.
  2. Validate the front side of the neck tag on your Gucci hoodie. Often, fake items display text on the neck tag that is overly thin, and the red threads are either excessively thick or too thin.
  3. Analyze the “Made in Italy” text on the tab beneath the neck tag. Fake pieces commonly have “Made in Italy” text that appears too thick, boxy, and “pixelated,” instead of being thinner, larger, and sharper.
  4. Scrutinize the rear side of the neck tag on your Gucci hoodie. Frequently, fake hoodies have text that is overly thick, and the stitching is inadequately dense.
  5. Check out the text on the aglets of the hood’s strings. The fake metal often reflects too much light and the “GUCCI” logo has the wrong font-weight.
  6. Take a look at the print on the front side of your hoodie. Many fake hoodies have “GUCCI” wording that appears excessively thick.

Presented below is a concise summary of the guide on identifying fake Gucci hoodies, encompassing all the key indicators.

We understand that you might not always have the time to go through the entire guide, which is why we’ve crafted this compact list for your convenience.
