How to spot a fake Supreme TNF Mountain jacket

    3. Registered trademark (R) symbol is of appropriate size and thickness.
    4. “MENS/HOMMES” text is standard in thickness and width.

Authenticity checklist

Short on time? Use this list to quickly verify your bag:

  1. Examine the Neck Tag: Most often, fake Supreme x The North Face jackets will exhibit inconsistencies in font weight and letter placement on their neck tags. Pay attention to the stitching quality as well, which tends to be poorer on replicas.
  2. Inspect the Wash Tags: Analyze the text on the wash tags of your Supreme x TNF Mountain Baltoro jacket. Fake jackets often feature text that appears too wide and thick.
  3. Review Exterior Arm Badges: Genuine Supreme x TNF jackets maintain consistent letter shapes and placement on exterior arm badges, whereas fake jackets often exhibit irregularities.
  4. Verify the Mountain Printing: Authentic Supreme x TNF jackets feature a single mountain top on the front side. Beware of fakes that have multiple mountain tops.
  5. Check “THE NORTH FACE” Text Logo: The “THE NORTH FACE” text logo on fake jackets is often thicker in appearance than on authentic ones.
  6. Inspect the “Supreme” Side Tag: Examine the small “Supreme” side tag closely. Fake Supreme x TNF jackets may use a different font and have thinner text on this tag.
  7. Verify the Holographic Logo: Authentic jackets have the holographic label correctly positioned, while fake jackets may have it misplaced on the white paper it is glued to.
  8. Examine the Extra Label: The text on The North Face extra label found on fake Supreme x TNF jackets is typically thinner than on genuine ones.
