How to spot a fake Vetements tee
To legit check Vetements t-shirts, first check the wash tags. Fake Vetements never have their inscription thin enough.
They’re often too thick in comparison to the original Vetements wash tags.
1. Wash tag
Authentic: The Vetements STAFF T-Shirt has clear and properly weighted text on its wash tag.
Fake: The replica’s wash tag text is noticeably thicker and bolder.

Here’s what happens with the fake “VETEMENTS” text:
“E” & “T” Spacing: The fake tee has a noticeable gap between the letters “E” and “T”.
The authentic tee, however, has them closer together.
First “T”: The bottom of the “T” on the fake is more curvy than on the authentic tee.
“E”: The bottom leg of the letter “E” on the fake is too thin compared to the authentic.
“M”: The fake’s “M” is noticeably thinner than its authentic counterpart.
“N”: The bottom of the “N” on the fake tee is too thin.
Second “T”: The fake’s letter “T” is too thin and curvy compared to the authentic tee’s “T”.

Shortlist: Check your Vetements tee
Examine the wash tags on your Vetements STAFF Tee. Often, counterfeit versions display text that is either too thick or too thin.
Evaluate the “VETEMENTS” print. Replicas typically feature text that’s too thin, with letters positioned too closely together.
Assess the luminosity of the 3M logo on the back by turning off the lights. Fake Vetements T-Shirts often have a diminished glow quality.
