Under the brands Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy Jeans, Hilfiger Collection, Tommy Hilfiger Tailored and TommyXGigi, Hilfiger now sells clothing, accessories and shoes for men, women and children. There are also glasses, watches, fragrances and furniture with the Hilfiger brand.

How to recognize Tommy Hilfiger fakes?
In the following, we will describe to you on the basis of the Authenticity features how to recognize an original Tommy Hilfiger sweater.
Hilfiger logo and size tag inside collar
You can recognize a Fake Hilfiger sweater for example by the sewn logo and Size tag inside the sweater, which are located in the back just below the neckline. On the original sweater, both the logo and the size tag are very neatly and finely embroidered. The letters are narrow and regular.Likewise with the "Premium Cotton" shield just below.
The fraudulent counterfeit, on the other hand, often has thick, inaccurately embroidered letters, which are often irregular.
The material of the tags is very soft on the original, while the Hilfiger fake here uses scratchy, hard materials.
Original Hilfiger label in the chest area
Another authenticity feature of the original sweater is the embroidered label on the outside of the chest area. This is very fine and clean embroidered on the original. The red and the white rectangle in the logo are the same size.
In the Hilfiger imitation, this logo is often sewn crooked or unclean. The white or the red rectangle may occupy more space than the other in the fake Hilfiger sweater.
The sewn-in washing instruction sheet
The sewn-in washing instructions slip found in the real Hilfiger sweater is matted and made of soft synthetic fabric. Again, the letters and drawings are printed accurately. You can recognize the Hilfiger copy in the washing instruction slip by glossy material, scratchy synthetic material or thick, inaccurately printed letters and characters.
Underneath the washing instructions, the original also has a sewn-in slip of paper with the production date. If it says 12/17, for example, the sweater was manufactured in December 2017. However, if you ordered or bought the sweater in the same month or even earlier, this is an indication of a fake.
Original Hilfiger label
The original label, which is attached to the goods by a ribbon, should have a satin finish. The small Tommy Hilfiger logo, on the other hand, should have a glossy surface.
Fakes are often made of cheap cardboard/paper and have discoloration or irregular colors.
