Aside from the “Supreme” text inside the bag, there are 8 other spots to check to know if your Supreme bag is real or fake. Find out what they are in this guide!

If you are wondering how to spot fake Supreme bags, then you are in the right place.

With each step of our guide, you’ll find real vs fake images to help you understand the situation.

How to spot a fake Supreme bag

To spot a fake bag, inspect the interior “Supreme” label. Fake bags often have their letters too thin or too thick, while real ones have the same thickness.

Let’s check them out.

1. Supreme label

  • The “Supreme ®” text is too small, thin, and boxy on the fake bag.
  • The “MADE IN CHINA” text found on the replica Supreme bag is also too small.

The real bag has thicker and bigger inscriptions.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Supreme authenticators:

2. Cordura tag

  • The “CORDURA” text is too thin.
  • Specifically, the “DURA” text is yellow on the fake bag, instead of the authentic orange.
  • The “FABRIC” is too big and thick on the fake product.

3. Box logo

  • There is too much space between the letters “S” and “u”.
  • The same applies between “u” and “p” — too much space on the fake bag.
  • The two letters “e” in the “Supreme” text are too sharp at the bottom.

The authentic letters “e” are properly printed, as they look less sharp and more defined than the fake bag’s letters.

4. Stitching

  • At the top of the box logo, the fake stitching is too thick.
  • There are fewer stitches on the fake bag. Density is lower on the fake.
  • The stitching at the bottom is angled at about 18 degrees. The real ones are straightly positioned.

The authentic bag has the same thickness for all stitches. They’re also denser than on the fake bag.

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.

5. Interior text

  • The fake bag has its “Supreme” text being too opaque, as it is too visible.
  • The legit “Supreme” text is rather hidden — it is harder to read.

6. All-over print

  • The fake bag has its “SUPREME” text all around the bag looking too thick and too opaque.
  • The authentic Supreme bag has its text looking not only too thin but also less opaque.
  • The legit bag must have its text a bit harder to read than the fake bag.

7. Buckle

  • The fake bag has its metal looking darker and of a different shade from the one used on the legit bag.
  • The buckle looks like it is made out of plastic due to the shade of the metal, while the authentic bag has more quality.

8. Reflectiveness

  • The fake bag has its reflective line looking too thick and too wide than the authentic bag’s line.

In fact, the authentic Supreme bag’s 3M reflective line is thinner and narrower.

9. Extra tag

  • The period next to each word is placed too far away from the specific words.
  • All of the authentic dots are placed at the same distance from the words.
  • The “FABRIC” text is too little opaque and too thin on the fake bag.

Shortlist: Check your bag

In summary:

  1. Examine the label inside your Supreme bag. Counterfeit bags often use a different font and font weight.
  2. Check the Cordura tag for discrepancies in font weights, sizes, and colors; these are common flaws in fake shoulder bags.
  3. Observe the box logo’s lettering on your bag. Replicas typically have sharper letters with excessive spacing.
  4. Assess the box logo’s stitching. Fake Supreme SS19 bags tend to vary in stitch weight and thickness.
  5. Inspect the “Supreme” stamped text inside your bag. Counterfeit versions often display overly prominent text.
  6. Study the “SUPREME” text all-over pattern. Fake bags often have overly large, thick, and opaque text.
  7. Check the bag’s buckle; counterfeit bags often feature darker metal.
  8. Review the 3M reflective tab on your bag. Fake versions typically have a thicker and wider reflective area.
  9. Examine the additional Cordura label. Counterfeit bags frequently display text with improper spacing and less opacity.

There may be times when you can’t follow every step mentioned above to verify your Supreme bag.
