Supreme sweatshirts are an excellent option for fans of the brand, and of streetwear in general, for the Fall and Winter seasons. They may not be as popular as Supreme’s t-shirts, but those living in cities like New York (where the brand was started) know that sweater-weather is always around the corner.
Everything that fans love about Supreme - the iconic logo, minimalist style, comfort and durability, and pop-culture representation - is present in Supreme’s sweatshirts. So, if you were already sold by the brand’s other offerings, Supreme sweatshirts are a no-brainer. For those who are new to Supreme, or who are seeking stylish new streetwear, there’s a lot to love about the brand and everything associated with it.
The style of Supreme sweatshirts originates from 90s New York skate culture, but the designs are timeless. Actually, the overall design aesthetic of Supreme sweatshirts is quite modern.
Like the brand’s famous t-shirts, Supreme sweatshirts include lots of pop-culture iconography, both classic and current. Various actors, musicians, and other artists from different eras appear on Supreme sweatshirts in the form of photos printed onto the fabric. There’s a rich combination of pop-culture eras being represented in Supreme’s designs.
The quality of Supreme sweatshirts is as high as any fan would suspect. After all, the brand always delivers high quality materials and stitching with their clothing, allowing them to be worn in a variety of conditions.
Supreme sweatshirts are made primarily from fleece, which will keep you warm in cool weather. This means you can wear the brand’s streetwear well into the Fall, and possibly into the Winter depending on where you live. Conveniently, the fabric is not so thick that you’ll sweat while indoors, so there’s still plenty of flexibility in terms of where you can wear Supreme sweatshirts.
How to Tell if Your Supreme Sweatshirt is Real
Supreme is one of the most demanded streetwear brands in the world. As such, it sells out fast, meaning that most people will need to buy Supreme sweatshirts from resellers. Unfortunately, not all resellers are honest and they may attempt to sell you fake Supreme. Supreme hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts for men and women are commonly knocked off by dishonest resellers, so you need to be careful when buying them.
To determine if your Supreme sweatshirt is real or fake, check the tags, logo, print quality, drawstrings, and its overall feel.
It can be difficult to tell if your Supreme sweatshirt is real or fake based on the tags because there are a lot of details to look for. Let’s start with the inner wash tag.
The text on the wash tag of a real Supreme sweatshirt should be dark and clean. Fake Supreme tags often contain slightly more faded text due to their low quality stitching. Low quality stitching might also be found at the very top and bottom of the fake Supreme sweatshirt’s wash tag. At the top of a real tag, the stitching pattern should be evenly spaced, and on the bottom, the stitching should create a straight line. Finally, when looking at the wash tag from the side, there should be minimal space within the tag loop between one side of the tag and the other, especially toward the top of the tag.
On the inner collar of a Supreme sweatshirt, there are two tags. The gap between the two collar tags should be very small and the tags should run parallel to one another. You will probably need to compare your Supreme sweatshirt collar tags to a picture of the real thing to determine if yours is legit.
Because the Supreme logo is so iconic, scam artists try their best to get it right. Sometimes, however, they’re take on the Supreme logo is a little off.
On Supreme hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts that include the brand’s classic red-on-white logo, the logo should meet a number of requirements. Within the logo, the word “Supreme” should be straight and the stitching on each letter should be clean. Additionally, the colors should be vibrant, especially the red whose exact shade is challenging for scammers to replicate. Do a side-by-side comparison of the logo on your Supreme sweatshirt and the logo on a fake.
If your Supreme sweatshirt has an image printed onto it, there are a couple of details you can examine for authenticity. First, check the colors. The colors of prints on any real Supreme sweatshirt will be vibrant and blacks will be dark. Fake Supreme prints typically contain duller colors and faded blacks.
Colors aside, if the print on your Supreme hoodie or crewneck sweatshirt is falling apart or peeling at its edges, then it’s fake. Real Supreme is not made with such low quality materials.
The drawstrings on a Supreme hoodie can be a telltale sign of a fake. It’s all in the shape of the drawstrings, which should be flat. Supreme hoodies always have flat drawstrings, so round drawstrings are a big red flag.
Like the rest of Supreme’s clothing, their sweatshirts are made from high quality materials and are designed to be comfortable and durable. If you put on your new Supreme sweatshirt and it doesn’t feel right, hopefully an alarm will be going off in your head. More specifically, if the materials of the sweatshirt feel rough and thin, you are likely in possession of a fake.
What to Wear with Supreme Sweatshirts
The minimalist designs of Supreme sweatshirts allow wearers the freedom to pair them with other streetwear, both from Supreme and from other brands. A couple of clothing items that Supreme fans commonly pair with their sweatshirts are hats and t-shirts.
Either way, if you’re looking to add some trendy and practical streetwear to your wardrobe, Supreme sweatshirts are an excellent option. Whether you’re a Supreme fan already, or you’re new to the community, you will not be disappointed with your purchase.
