How to spot a fake Supreme Bape box logo

The #1 way to spot fake Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirts is to examine the neck and wash tags. Fakes typically lack the correct font-weighting and aging on their inscriptions.

1. Neck tag


  1. Vintage Look: The neck tag displays a slightly faded and “older” appearance, even when well-kept, due to the item’s age.
  2. “®” Symbol Placement: It’s located lower and has more space between it and the Supreme box logo above.
  3. Text Font-Weight: Despite some fading, the text in the middle of the neck tag maintains a noticeably thicker font-weight.


  1. Fresh Appearance: The neck tag looks conspicuously “new,” as though it was recently made.
  2. “®” Symbol Placement: It is positioned too closely to the Supreme box logo above.
  3. Text Font-Weight: The text in the neck tag’s body is noticeably thinner than its authentic counterpart.

2. Wash tag

Flip over the neck tag to see the washing instructions.


  • Ghost Inscriptions: Expected faded text, yet still discernible and notably thinner in appearance.


  • Text Thickness: Displays overly thick inscriptions, contrasting with the subtle and faded appearance of authentic versions.

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. Stitching

We’ll stay on the neck tag for the Supreme tee’s stitching.


  • Stitching: Features thinner and narrower stitches on both sides of the label.


  • Stitching: Displays overly thick and wide stitching, noticeably different when compared to the authentic tee.

4. Box logo

Authentic Supreme x Bape box logo tee:

  • Letter “p”: Has a smaller inner circle due to the letter being thicker.
  • Letter “e”: Appears thicker and bulkier, particularly at the bottom.
  • Spacing: Lesser space between the letters “m” and “e” due to their thicker build.

Fake Supreme x Bape box logo tee:

  • Letter “p”: Features a wider inner circle, a result of the letter being too thin.
  • Letter “e”: Is notably thinner, especially noticeable at the bottom part of the letter.
  • Spacing: Displays excessive space between the letters “m” and “e” due to them being too thin.

5. Bape logo


  • Exhibits a darker shade of brown, reflecting the original color palette of the brand.


  • Utilizes a lighter, incorrect shade of brown, differing from the authentic hue.

Authenticity checklist

Here’s a concise summary of the quickest way to authenticate a Supreme x Bape box logo t-shirt:

  1. Check the neck tag for correct text thickness, as fake ones often have thinner text.
  2. Examine the text on the back of the neck tag, looking for proper thickness.
  3. Inspect the stitching on the neck tag; authentic tees have narrower stitching.
  4. Analyze the lettering on the front of the Supreme logo, checking for proper shaping, weighting, and spacing.
  5. Look at the small Bape logo at the tee’s bottom; fake versions tend to have a lighter brown shade.
