Since Vlone items are really demanded and the market appreciates these, we have to remember that there is also the replica Vlone market.
Today, we are here to let you know how to spot fake vs real Vlone items.
The main thing that we will talk about today is the element that’s present on most of the Vlone items: the print on the rear side of pretty much every Vlone t-shirt, hoodie and so on.
Besides the rear print, we’ve also included the “V” shaped neck tag and the wash tag, and the front print, which is present on most part of Vlone items.
With all of this being said, let’s proceed to the guide itself.
How to tell if your Vlone is real or fake
You can tell if your Vlone is real by checking if the text on the V-shaped neck tag is straight, as fake Vlone items always have their text slanted. Real items have flawless text that’s straight and not slanted.
Replica Vlone items have poorer quality in terms of text placement, but also in terms of thickness. You may often see fake Vlone t-shirts and hoodies with very thick or extremely thin inscriptions.
1. Back “V” logo
Let’s begin the fake vs real Vlone guide with the detail that the brand stands out most for: the rear V-shaped logo.
1.1. Best-quality replica comparison
Flaws on the fake Vlone t-shirt:
The dents in the “V” print are too large on the replica Vlone t-shirt.
This is a flaw that the main part of the fake Vlone manufacturers always mistake.
The real t-shirt has smaller holes for the V-shaped logo which looks like it has bulletholes and other rips inside.
1.2. Lower-quality replica comparison
Let’s also have a look at the inferior quality of the real vs fake Vlone FRIENDS- rear print quality. There are lots of these in the market too, so it’s our job to protect your from buying one by mistake.
The fake Vlone print is placed too high.
The logo is also crooked and wrongly placed, as it is angled too much to the right
The fake “V” logo is placed too high on the t-shirt.
The authentic Vlone print is more centred than the fake item, and this is a spot that you can check with the naked eye.

2. Front “FRIENDS-” logo
There are a few things to look at when checking fake vs real Vlone items to the front part:
The letter “F”: The second line of the letter is arched too much on the replica Vlone item. On the legit Vlone FRIENDS- print, the line is perfectly sharp.
The letter “R”: The top right corner of the “R” is less curvy on the replica Vlone print. The legit Vlone print has the “R” looking curvier and more arched.
The letter “D”: The blank space inside the letter is too small. On the other hand, the retail Vlone has more space there. You may see this inside the letter “R” as well.
The “D” and “S”: Too little distance between the “D” and the “S” letters on the replica Vlone print. These letters are too close to each other.
Hyphen (“-“) #1: The hyphen/dash symbol is too small in length.
Hyphen (“-“) #2: The corners of the symbol are curved, while the real dash has sharp corners.
That’s all you have to know about the “FRIENDS-” text on your Vlone tee or hoodie.
3. Neck tag
As you can see in the picture linked above, we’ve got two main points to look at:
The fake Vlone item has thicker inscriptions.
Most noticeable in the “SIZE-(x)” text, and the text below it.
The fake “LIVE VLONE DIE VLONE” text has a different nuance of orange.
The fake text is a brighter orange, while the legit one is darker.
The “100% COTTON” uses a different font from the real Vlone wash tag.
The same text is thinner than the legit item’s text.
The “MADE IN USA” is too thin on the fake t-shirt, while thicker on the real one.
The same inscription is too big, and it is smaller on the real item.
The circle in the middle of the wash tag is too small and thin. You’ll see it thicker and bigger on the real item.
The “DRY CLEAN ONLY” text is too big and thin on the fake. The opposite is on the real t-shirt.
The “V” logo is too small on the fake t-shirt and bigger on the real product.
Shortlist for you to legit check Vlone items
Check the rear “V” logo print. Fake Vlone items have holes in the logo too curvy and arched, and the “V” may be placed too high or too angled/crooked.
Verify the front “FRIENDS-” print. The fake Vlone items have the corners of the characters curvy instead of sharp and at the same time, they have less space between the characters.
Inspect the neck tag. Fake Vlones either have the text with a nuance of orange that’s too bright, or the text is too thick.
Analyse the wash tag so the text won’t have a different font than the legit ones, and so it won’t be too thick. The most important thing to look at here is the “V” print because fake Vlone items don’t have holes in the “V” logo.
