Ive noticed a few (what i believe too be) fakes floating around on the net and small local markets and also picked up on a few comments made here on the forum..

So are there any tell tall signs of a fake that we could look out for?
Or has anyone got any examples of whats fake and what 2 look out for!

I can't really comment because I get most of my caps from the flagship store or shops i know sell ligit caps! I was wondering if theres anyone who good shed some advice to the rest of us..

But I think a major tell tale sign is the sticker, Ive seen stickers that aint matallic gold (not sure if some of these are just old!). Ive seen caps where the size says 7 1/4 for example and the cm measurements (57.7cm normally) are wrong! (noticed it when i compared it 2 a legit cap i had on my head!!!) also i once came across this cap when the flag was on the right of the cap!! dunno what that was about..

And i noticed someone said that if the sticker aint center chances are it aint real is that true??

Cool

Yeah it's an older hat, been on the market for about a year probably. But none the less still a nice look...
