How do I spot a fake Balmain jacket?
You can tell if a Balmain jacket is real by looking at the inside. A real Balmain will have a Balmain logo tag sewn on the inside. Always purchase Balmain garments from a reputable seller to ensure authenticity. Shop a collection of authentic Balmain from some of the world’s top boutiques on 1stDibs.

To spot a fake Balmain jacket, examine the tag on the inner collar. Although label styles have varied over the years, most genuine Balmain collar labels have the brand name printed in the iconic font. It will be spaced evenly and the lettering will be crisp and clear. Balmain will be positioned above the word "Paris.” Every single authentic Balmain tag will have the name of the luxury house spelled correctly (when it comes to fakes, this is an obvious tell). Additionally, the hardware will feel durable and robust, and the stitching on real Balmain pieces will show great care. Each impeccable stitch will appear even, and there won’t be any detectable irregularities. If you notice flaws in the craftsmanship of your piece, the jacket is likely fake.
