To put it shortly, the quickest way to spot fake Supreme items is to check the wash tag and the neck tag inside your item, as the replica manufacturers never manage to fix the flaws in terms of text positioning, font weight and other factors on these little tags.
If you are here because you want to learn how to spot fake Supreme items, then no wonder, you are in the best place to do so.
This article concentrates on the main ways to spot fake Supreme items, applying to any type, model, colourway, and release of Supreme’s wearable items, such as the famous box logo t-shirts, hoodies, crewnecks and so on.
At the same time, in this fake vs real Supreme guide, we are going to link real vs fake Supreme images from all around our guides, with a variety of tags and elements from t-shirts, hoodies, and crewnecks.
Along with each step of this real vs fake Supreme legit check guide, you will notice our reference fake vs real Supreme images which will help you visualise and easily understand the flaws met on the replica Supreme items.

This being said, and now that you know the main goal of this fake vs real Supreme legit check guide, we should proceed to the proper real vs fake Supreme guide.
You can tell if Supreme is real if the neck tag has a very saturated red color on the neck tag. At the same time, real Supreme products have thin inscriptions on the wash tags.
Let’s get on with the real vs fake Supreme guide.
The wash tag is 90% of the time the most reliable sign of authenticity, and the other 10% credit goes to the neck tag, especially for the t-shirts.
Now, we are first going to analyze the fake vs real Supreme Bandana box logo hoodies‘ wash tags, and then, we are also going to check out other real vs fake Supreme wash tag comparisons.
All of the stitches on the legit Supreme item’s wash tag are connected.
Besides, the authentic Supreme Bogo has all of its stitches wavy placed on the wash tag, while the replica Supreme Bandana Bogo has its stitches straightly placed.
On the other hand, the legit Supreme Bandana Bogo has the letter inside the circle sized well enough not to touch the edges of the circle, unlike the replica which is exactly the opposite.
The real box logo hoodie is exactly the opposite, as it has smaller and thinner characters.
These four lines of text are the text under the “CARE INSTRUCTIONS” printing.
The “30°” text stands for the number of degrees when washing the Supreme Bandana Bogo.
If your Supreme Bandana item says “90% COTTON / “10% POLYESTER”, don’t worry – that doesn’t mean that you have a fake Supreme Bandana item.
There are authentic Supreme Bandana items that say both “100% COTTON” and “90% COTTON / “10% POLYESTER”.
Above, we have placed an example of an authentic Supreme Box Logo hoodie which says “90% COTTON / “10% POLYESTER”.
Let’s have a look at another comparison of the real vs fake Supreme bogo hoodie, but this time, we are going to analyze the wash tags of the real vs fake Supreme classic bogo hoodie.
In the real vs fake Supreme Bogo hoodie image above:
On the other hand, the authentic Supreme has more a lot more space between the “CARE INSTRUCTIONS” text and the black bar below.
Moving lower on the fake vs real Supreme Bogo image, you can notice how at the bottom of the wash tag, there is a spacing problem between the bottom of the size tag and the last elements printed above.
As a little observation point, we recommend you keep an eye out for the following extra clip flaw.
The authentic Supreme box logo hoodies will never have this extra clip flaw, as the wash tag will always be stitched into the hoodie, unlike the fake one in the image above, which has an extra clip, even though it is stitched in.
Let’s first check out the front wash tag.
As you can see, the fake vs real Supreme bogo crewneck image above has different releases/models for the wash tags from the real vs fake Supreme bogo crewneck items.
First, we are going to check these two different models in the fake vs real Supreme bogo crewneck image above, and then, we are going to check two models which are the same.
On the authentic Supreme box logo crewneck, you can easily notice how all of the stitches have the same weight and length.
On the other hand, the authentic Supreme box logo crewneck has its “®” character looking thicker and bigger than the fake crewneck’s symbol.
The text on the authentic Supreme box logo crewneck is visibly thicker, wider, and bigger than the one met on the fake box logo crewneck.
This is pretty much the only difference of the releases/models in the fake vs real Supreme bogo crewneck image above, which we’ll investigate in just a bit.
The authentic crewneck has all of its letters at the same font-weight, unlike the fake item’s letters.
This being said for the real vs fake Supreme box logo crewneck image above, let’s have a look at another comparison, which has the same inscriptions on the wash tag, indicating the same release.
All of the flaws from the previous comparison apply to this one as well:
Now, we should as well proceed to the printings met on the rear side of the fake vs real Supreme crewneck’s wash tag.
Once again, we’ll do the same thing as from the front side – we will first compare different releases, and then, the same ones.
Let’s also have a look at the reference real vs fake Supreme box logo crewnecks with the same model/release, having the same inscriptions on both the fake vs real Supreme crewneck.
This being said for the wash tag of the fake vs real Supreme box logo crewnecks, we should proceed to the next step of the guide on how to spot fake Supreme crewnecks.
Things are a little different from the hoodie, as the wash tag is basically the rear side of the neck tag, which we are going to inspect soon.
As for the real vs fake Supreme t-shirt wash tag comparison, we are going to have the Supreme Brooklyn box logo (store opening) t-shirt for reference.
With all of this being said for the Supreme fake vs real wash tags, we should proceed to the next step of the guide on how to spot fake Supreme items.
As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Supreme items, we are going to analyze the fake vs real Supreme items’ neck tags, since it is the second-best sign of authenticity.
Spaacing between the neck tags varies even on the retail Supreme Box Logo hoodies, so don’t take it for the exact millimetric measure on your Supreme item too.
Despite the text’s distance varying on the authentic Supreme items’ neck tag, they should never be overlapping or touching as the text in the fake example, visible in the two real vs fake Supreme Bogo hoodie images below.
You will never see an authentic Supreme Bogo having the overlapping problem of these two tags pointing to the Supreme logo and the country in which the items were made.
Authentic Supreme crewnecks never have their tabs placed as close to each other as to make contact.
