Wondering how to spot fake Kenzo Paris clothes?

We’ll teach you that.

How to know if your Kenzo sweatshirt is authentic or not

To know if your Kenzo sweatshirt is authentic or not, check the wash tags. Very thin letters indicate a fake Kenzo, while bolded text indicates an original sweatshirt.

1. Wash tag

  • The fake Kenzo sweatshirt’s “Portugal” text is too thick compared to the text on the original.
  • The symbols showing you how to wash the sweatshirt are too thin on the fake.
  • The fake Kenzo item’s wash tag has the Chinese text at the bottom looking too thin.

Keep in mind that there are many releases of the Kenzo Tiger sweatshirt, and your wash tag may be a little bit different than the one in the image above.

2. Neck tag

  • The fake Kenzo Tiger sweatshirt has the letter “K” looking too wide.
  • The angled legs of the “K” are too thick compared to the retail Kenzo Tiger crewneck’s letter “K”.
  • In the letter “E”, the vertical leg is really thin, and the horizontal legs are way too thick on the fake sweatshirt.
  • Looking at the “Z” in the “KENZO” text, the fake neck tag has very thin horizontal legs.
  • The whole letter “Z” is too wide on the counterfeit Kenzo sweatshirt.
  • In the word “PARIS”, the letter “S” looks way too big and thick.
  • The fake “PARIS” text is also placed too close to the “KENZO” text above.

On the other hand, the authentic Kenzo Tiger’s “PARIS” text has all of its letters at the same font weight, and the “PARIS” text is placed further away from the “KENZO” print.

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.

3. Tiger print

  • The fake Kenzo crewneck has letters bigger than the ones on the authentic Kenzo item.
  • The fake “P A R I S” text on the front side of the item appears to have its letters looking too stretched out.
  • The letters are too tall compared to the letters on the retail Kenzo item.
  • The bottom of the letter “S” is too thick on the fake Tiger print.

Shortlist: Tell if your Kenzo is fake in 30 seconds

  1. Check the wash tags of your Kenzo Tiger. Most of the time, the replica Kenzo Tiger crewnecks have their text on the wash tags looking too thick or too thin.
  2. Verify the neck tag of your Kenzo Tiger sweatshirt. Mostly, the fake Kenzo Tiger crewnecks have their letters too wide, too thin and too thick on the letters.
  3. Inspect the frontal printing of your Kenzo Tiger product. Usually, the fake Kenzo Tiger items have their letters in the “P A R I S” text looking too thick and too tall.

The 3 detailed real vs fake Kenzo Tiger crewneck steps outlined above might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy the item online.
