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 on how 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.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Gucci hoodies is to look at the wash and the neck tags since most of the fake items never have their inscriptions looking varying in thicknesses, while the authentic hoodies always have their letters at the same font-weight.

How to spot fake Gucci hoodies

Step 1: Fake vs real Gucci hoodie wash tags

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the wash tag of the Gucci hoodie as the most reliable sign of authenticity.

Therefore, we recommend that you always check the wash tags when you have to authenticate Gucci hoodies

  • The front side of the wash tag

First of all, we will talk about the wash tags on the real vs fake Gucci hoodies, and then, we will also flip them to the rear side and talk about that side as well.

Now, let’s have look at the reference real vs fake Gucci hoodie image below so that we could easily spot the differences between the two pieces.

In the fake vs real Gucci hoodie image above, we have pointed out how the fake hoodie’s wash tag has one flaw which applies to every inscription – that is the font-weight.

In fact, as we mentioned at the top of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, the main flaw on the fake pieces’ wash tags is that they have their text improperly font-weighted.

By that, we mean that most of the fake hoodies have their inscriptions on the wash tag looking either too thick or too thin.

In the case of the real vs fake Gucci hoodies from above, we have pointed out how the fake item has its inscriptions looking too thick.

And so, all of the characters at which we’ve pointed out in the real vs fake Gucci hoodie image above are too thick when compared to the the real deal.

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

  • The rear side of the wash tag

Now, let’s move on to the rear side of the wash tags on the fake vs real Gucci hoodies.

As you may know already, we are first going to have a look at the reference fake vs real Gucci hoodie image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake item’s wash tag.

In the image with the real vs fake Gucci hoodies above, we have pointed out how the fake item has its inscriptions looking too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic hoodie has its inscriptions looking thicker and more defined than the fake wash tag’s.

Step 2: Real vs fake Gucci hoodie neck tag

Moving on to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, we are going to look at the real vs fake Gucci hoodies for the neck tag.

As previously mentioned, we consider the neck tag as the second best spot to check in order to properly authenticate Gucci hoodies.

In the image containing the original vs replica Gucci hoodies above, we have pointed out how the fake item has two main flaws.

First of all, talking about the read threads at the top left and the right corners of the label, you can see how the fake piece has its red stitches looking too thin.

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

Then, moving on to the “GUCCI” text found in the middle side of the neck tag, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Gucci hoodie image above how the fake item has its text too thin.

Speaking of the authentic Gucci hoodie, you can see how its “GUCCI” text appears to be thicker and more defined than the text found on the fake Gucci hoodie.

Step 3: Check the little “Made in Italy” tab below the neck tag

Proceeding to the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, we are going to look at the little “Made in Italy” tab below the neck tag.

As always, let’s first have a look at the reference real vs fake Gucci hoodie image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake item.

In the image with the real vs fake Gucci hoodies above, we have pointed out how the replica Gucci hoodie has its “Made in Italy” text at the wrong font-weight.

In fact, the fake hoodie has its letters looking too thick when compared to the authentic items’ letters.

The authentic Gucci hoodie has its letters in the “Made in Italy” text looking thinner than the ones found on the fake piece.

Another flaw visible on the fake items’ “Made in Italy” tab is the shape of the text: the fake item has its text looking too boxy.

On the other hand, the authentic Gucci hoodie has its letters looking bigger and easier to read than the fake hoodie’s letters.

The printing quality of the letters is also important, because the fake item has its letters looking too “pixelated”, and the authentic item has its letters sharper and printed in a better manner.

To put it shortly, the authentic item has its letters on the tab looking thinner, bigger, sharper, and more defined than the fake Gucci hoodies’ letters.

Step 4: Flip the neck tag upside down and check its stitching quality

Going to the fourth method on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, we are going to look at the fake vs real Gucci hoodies for the quality of the stitching on the rear side of the neck tag.

Now, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake Gucci hoodie image in order to properly check out the details on the two pieces.

In the image containing the fake vs real Gucci hoodies above, we have noticed how the fake hoodie has two visible flaws.

Talking about the red threads, you can see how 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.

In regards to the “GUCCI” text, you can notice in the real vs fake Gucci hoodie image above how the fake piece has its stitches improperly done, as the letters in the “GUCCI” text are too thick on the fake hoodie.

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

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Inspect the text on the hardware of the Gucci hoodie

Moving on to the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies we are going to look at the real vs fake Gucci hoodies for the “GUCCI” inscription found on the hardware detail on the lanyard which you pull the hood with.

As always, let’s have a brief at the reference fake vs real Gucci hoodie image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake hoodie.

In the image containing the real vs fake Gucci hoodies above, we have pointed out how the fake item has its hardware metal too shiny.

On the other hand, speaking of the legit hoodie, you can see how its metal is less shiny than the one found on the fake item.

Yet another flaw on the fake item, you can see how the fake hoodie has its “GUCCI” text looking too thick.

Talking about the authentic hoodie, it is noticeable in the real vs fake Gucci hoodie image above how the legit item has its “GUCCI” text thinner than the fake item’s text.

Step 6: Gucci hoodie fake vs real front print

Up next, for the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci hoodies, we will have to look at the front print on the real vs fake Gucci hoodies.

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