Wondering how to spot fake Palm Angels Kill The Bear items? Afraid of getting scammed?

This is the guide you’ve been looking for.

How to tell if Palm Angels Kill The Bear is fake

You can tell if Palm Angels Kill The Bear is fake if the wash tag has thin letters and numbers. Fakes always have thinner inscriptions compared to those on a real item.

1. Wash tag

1.1. Long wash tag

  • The fake t-shirt has the “Palm Angels” text at the top looking too small and thin.
  • The fake item’s “Palm Angels” text is also placed too close to the “PM …” number text below.
  • The fake item also has the “PM …” text looking too thick, while on the legit piece, the text is thinner.
  • Fake Palm Angels Kill The Bear items have the “SIZE CA” text looking too thin.
  • In the “FABRIC” row of text, the fake item has its text looking too thin once again.
  • The same flaw applies to the “COTTON” line: the fake item has its text looking too thin.

1.2. Short wash tag

Let’s have a look at the smaller side of the wash tag on the real vs fake Palm Angels Kill The Bear items.

  • The fake Palm Angels item has its text looking too small on each side of the wash tag.

On the other hand, the text on the authentic item is bigger, and it is also thinner than the text visible on the fake item’s wash tag, which is a bit too thick as well.

1.3. Authentic example

Lastly, let’s have a look at another example of an authentic Palm Angels Kill The Bear item’s wash tags, on both the front and the rear sides, so that you’d have more examples to compare your item with.

  • The authentic tags in the image above have their text at the right font-weight, placement, and size.

2. Certilogo tag

The Certilogo is the little tag positioned next to the wash tag, which can be scanned with your phone in real life in order to check the authenticity of the Palm Angels item.

2.1. Real vs fake

  • The fake item has its “Palm Angels” text looking too thick.
  • The “SCAN TO CHECK YOUR / AUTHENTIC PRODUCT” text is waving on the fake label.
    • By that, we mean that the letters on the fake Palm Angels items’ text are improperly shaped
    • Some of the letters are bigger than others.
    • The letters on the fake item are not placed at the same level – therefore, some of the letters are floating.

We’ve placed one hand-emoji pointer on the left side to tell you where to put your phone in order to verify your Palm Angels through Certilogo.

2.2. Authentic example

Let’s also have a look at an example of how the Certilogo tag is supposed to look on both the front and the rear side, with the help of an authentic PA Kill The Bear tee’s Certilogo tag.

The authentic item has its text properly font-weighted, shaped, and positioned on both the front and the rear sides of the label.

3. Neck tag

3.1. Pink label

  • The fake Palm Angels neck tag has thinner inscriptions.
  • Most noticeable in the letter “P” in the word “Palm” and in the letter “n” in the word “Angels”.

3.2. Black label

Here’s another example of an authentic Palm Angels Kill The Bear item’s neck tag which hasn’t been replicated properly yet.

This neck tag can be found on the newer Palm Angels items.

4. Bear print

  • The fake item has its bear looking too textured.
  • The colour of the fake bear is a bit too dark when compared to the legit bear.

This can differ in different lighting conditions, so make sure to check your t-shirt/hoodie when it is in the light.

5. Rear logo

  • The fake item has its text improperly printed.

As you can see, we have placed the hand-emoji pointers at each “extended line” in the letters of the Palm Angels logo, in order to show you how they are too thin, and how they are thicker on the legit item’s print.

Not only that, but the fake item’s lines are too long, while on the legit piece, they are shorter.

Shortlist: Tell fake Palm Angels in 30 seconds

  1. Check the wash tags of your Palm Angels tee. Look for any placement and font-weight flaws. The fake PA KTB items usually have their text too thin.
  2. Verify the Certilogo tag for any flaws. Mostly, the fake Certilogo tags have their text looking too thick and improperly positioned, as some of the letters are usually floating.
  3. Look at the neck tag for any font-weight flaws. The fake Palm Angels items are most common to have their text too thin
  4. Analyze the print on the front side of your item. Most of the time, the counterfeit Palm Angels Kill The Bear items have their bear saturated too much, as it usually looks too dark.
  5. Inspect the print on the rear side of the Palm Angels product. Mostly, the fake Palm Angels items have their text on the rear side looking too thin and long on the extended lines of the font used for the “Palm Angels” text.

The 5 detailed real vs fake Palm Angels Tee steps outlined above might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy the item online.
