How to check if the ADLV shirt is authentic?

This process can be basically split into two parts:-before the purchase and after the purchase. Of course, it would be better to identify if the seller is legit before you place an order. Especially if you are buying online!

Before Purchasing ADLV apparel

There are three ways to identify if the ADLV T-shirts, hoodies etc are authentic.

1. Price is too good to be true

The prices for authentic ADLV clothing starts from 39000won (~SGD50) for a ADLV Basic Short Sleeve T-shirt and 59000won (~SGD 74) for a ADLV Baby Face T-shirt.

In addition, the seller will not only have to cover the cost price of the ADLV apparel, he/she will have to pay for the international delivery and/ or local delivery.

Thus, if a seller sells at a price that is too low, there is a high tendency that the clothing might not be authentic.

2. Country of origin or shipment country

ADLV is a streetwear brand from Korea. Also, its products are all made in Korea. It would be strange if their clothing are shipped from a country other than South Korea.

In addition, if sellers state that the ADLV clothing are made somewhere other than Korea, beware! You might not be dealing with a genuine seller.

3. Few reviews or no photo reviews

It might be easier for sellers to fake reviews, but photo reviews are much more difficult to be faked. Does the seller have enough photo reviews from customers to prove that it's an authentic product?

After Purchase

If you have decided to trust the seller, and make the order for the ADLV apparel, you still have 2 ways to confirm if you have received an authentic ADLV shirt.

1. Check the packaging

All ADLV items come in their unique packaging in a thick resealable transparent vinyl. The vinyl also indicates the size of the item on its top right hand corner.

2. Hidden Tag

This is the most important step to confirm that you have received an authentic ADLV apparel. If you are still hesitant from all the above steps, do ensure you do this step.

All Acme de la vie apparel items come with a hidden tag verification. It is located at the back of the price tag, at the bottom right corner.

You will see a box with letter 'H', and four dots at its corners. It also has a small grey scratch box at its bottom left corner.
