The best way to spot fake Palace clothes is to look at the wash tag and at the neck tag of your item, as the replica Palace tees, hoodies, crewnecks and jackets have their text on the wash tag at the wrong thickness. That aside, the neck tag is yet another reliable spot to look at in order to spot fake Palace clothes.

If you are looking to learn how to spot fake Palace clothes, then you are for sure in the right place.

We have compiled this real vs fake Palace clothing authentication guide. Just by reading it, you are going to know what to look for in order to authenticate Palace clothes.

Along with every step of our guide on how to spot fake Palace clothes, we are going to link reference fake vs real Palace clothing images.

These fake vs real Palace images will help you easily identify where you have a real vs fake Palace t-shirt, hoodie, crewneck, jacket and so on.

How to spot any fake Palace clothes

1. Wash tag logo

  • The fake Palace item has the word “SKATEBOARDS” at the wrong thickness.
  • The fake Palace hoodie has its word “SKATEBOARDS” too thin and also a little bit smaller.
  • The triangle logo has scratches and it isn’t filled entirely with black paint, since it has a grey shade.

Looking at the legitimate Palace hoodie’s wash tag, you can see how its Palace triangle logo has no scratch, and how it is fully black, and not grey or any other sort of shade.

2. Second wash tag

  • The fake Palace item has thicker, small, and boxier inscriptions for the “100% COTTON” print.
  • The “Wash with similar colours / Wash Inside out / Do not iron on print” is also too thick,
  • The “RN 150137” is too small and thick on the fake.
  • The last lines of are too thick as well on the fake tee.
  • The fake “MADE IN VIETNAM” text uses a different font compared to the real one.

The legit Palace tee’s two lines of text at the bottom side of the wash tag have the same font as the rest of the text on the wash tag, and they’re also thinner than the fake item’s text.

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.

2. Neck tag

2.1. Printed label

  • The two “PALACE” prints are too thin, as the white edges of the letters are too narrow.
  • The size inscription is too small on the fake (“M”).

2.2. Stitched label

  • The fake “PALACE” text is too small.
  • The fake item has the letter “M” looking too thin.

On the other hand, the stitched text on the authentic Palace item is bigger than the print on the fake Palace item.

Shortlist: How to tell fake Palace items

  1. Check the front side of the wash tag on your palace item. Mostly, the Palace logo on the fake items is scratched and grey instead of with no scratches and coloured black
  2. Look at the second wash tag on your Palace item, as the fake pieces usually have their text using the wrong font, and also being too thick
  3. Check the neck tag on your Palace item. Usually, the fake items have their text in the wrong font weight.

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