To put it simply, the fastest way to spot fake Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirt is to check the neck and the wash tags, as the fake Supreme x Bape box logo tees never have their inscriptions font-weighted and aged as much as the real ones. In fact, you can easily spot a fake Supreme x Bape bogo tee by looking at the visibility of the inscriptions – the authentic tees are always aged and they have their text faded out a bit no matter how good they’ve been kept, and this is a detail that’s pretty much just always missed by the fake pieces.
A Bathing Ape, better known as Bape, is a brand that’s always been at the base of the streetwear culture, alongside with Supreme.
There’s been a few times from 1998 to 2002 when Bape and Supreme united and made the famous Supreme x BAPE Box Logo that was released in about 15 colourways.
As a fun fact, while all of the Supreme x Bape bogos (box logos), people estimate that the fire, blue and the pink box logos are the rarest ones out there.
Whether you have the box logo in blue, pink, brown, fire Supreme x Bape box logo, we’ve got you covered with this fake vs real Supreme x Bape bogo legit check guide that applies to every colourway of this item.
The guide on how to spot fake Supreme x Bape box logo tees begins with the very best way to spot a fake tee: the neck tag, as we’ve mentioned before.
First things first, let’s quickly have a look at an image that contains the fake vs real Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirts, and right after that, we’ll explain everything there is to be said about the real and the fake pieces.
Looking at this image with the authentic vs replica Supreme x Bape box logo tees above, you can see how the overall look of the fake tee’s neck tag is too “new”, as the fake neck tag looks like it was crafted just a few minutes ago.
On the other hand, the authentic tee has this vintage look that is caused by the age of the item. By that, we mean that no matter how good an authentic tee was kept, it must still have at least a little bit of fading out in order to have this “older” look.
Now as for the flaws on the actual inscriptions on the fake bogo tee, you can observe how the registered trademark “®” symbol is placed too close to the Supreme classic box logo above.
As for the authentic Supreme x Bape bogo tee, it is noticeable how the “®” character is placed lower, as there is more distance in-between the “®” symbol and the Supreme box logo from above.
The third and the last flaw visible on the fake neck tag is about the body’s text in the middle of the neck tag, where the fake tee’s text is too thin, and where the real text is thicker.
Even though the authentic item’s text is faded out, you can still notice the different in the font-weight between the real and the fake one, as the real text is way thicker than its counterfeit’s.
The second method of the guide on how to authenticate Supreme x Bape box logo tees will have us looking at the same label, but this time, on rear side.
If you flip over the neck tag on your Bape bogo tee, you will notice the information regarding how you should wash your Supreme x Bape box logo tee.
Well, there we have it… Another authentic tee with ghost inscriptions!
As always, the authentic Bape x Supreme box logo tees must have their text faded, but leaving that aside, you can see how the fake item’s text is too thick.
On the other hand, while the real tee’s text is indeed too little visible, you can actually see how the inscriptions in the middle of the tag look thinner than the fake ones.
Going to the third method of the guide on how to authenticate Supreme Bape box logo t-shirts, surprisingly or not, we are going to talk about the neck tag once again, only this time we are going to refer to the stitching o the left and on the right sides of the tag.
The picture with the real vs replica Supreme x Bape box logo tees above highlights how the stitching on the left and on the right sides of the label is too thick and too wide.
Talking about the authentic Supreme x Bape bogo tee, you can notice how its stitches are thinner and narrower that the ones seen on the fake tee.
The fourth step of the guide on how to legit check Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirts, we are going to look at the actual box logos on this famous tee.
As always, let’s first look at the real vs replica Bape box logo tee comparison image, and after that, we’ll break down the flaws on the fake item, as well as the correct details seen on the real tee.
This is pretty simple: there are three flaws on the fake Supreme x Bape box logo tee, as well as three counterparts that are correctly detailed on the real tee.
1 – The first hand-emoji pointer shows us how the fake box logo tee’s circle inside the letter “p” is too wide, and how there is too much empty space inside the letter.
In fact, that is caused on the fake tee because the letter “p” is too thin, and while the authentic item’s letter is thicker, the empty space inside the letter is smaller than in the fake one.
2 – The fake item’s letter “e” is too thin as well, and that can be seen if you look at the bottom side, where the curvy leg of the fake “e” is too narrow.
Looking at the genuine Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirt, you can see how its letter “e” looks thicker and bulkier than the fake one, especially at the bottom of the letter.
3 – The spacing between the letters “m” and “e” is wrong on the fake tee as well, and because the letters are too thin, there’s too much empty space in-between those.
On the other hand, the authentic tee’s characters are thicker, hence why they are placed closer to each other than the fake ones.
Moving forward to the fifth step of the Bape x Supreme box logo tee authenticity process, we now want to go to the bottom of the t-shirts.
Here we need to check the little Bape face logo with the “®” symbol.
Looking at the real vs fake Supreme x Bape box logo image above, you can see how the fake Bape tag’s face logo is too light, as the shade of brown is the wrong one.
On the other hand, the authentic Supreme x Bape bogo tee’s little Bape face logo is coloured darker, as the ape has a darker shade of brown than the fake one.
