Step 1: Collar Label
Hugo Boss shirts feature a label on the inner collar. It is usually black with white stitching but other colours have been used including red. The 'BOSS' logo is usually present with a smaller 'HUGO BOSS' underneath it. Check the letters, size, spacing, alignment and quality finish of the logos.

Step 2: Buttons
Hugo Boss buttons are usually opaque pearl in colour and cross-stitched with the same colour thread as the shirt. The stitching will always be neat and tidy with few lose ends.

Step 3: Button Holes
Hugo Boss button holes are very neat and tidy with few if any lose ends showing.

Step 4: Care Label
Hugo Boss shirts feature a care instruction label on the inside. The exact copy will vary.

Step 5: Swing Tag
Check that the Hugo Boss logo on the swing tag is consistent with the official logo used. Beware that genuine swing tags can accompany counterfeit shirts.

Step 6: Tag Back
If the seller still photographed the swing tag check that the price, style name and any details match the receipt and the inside security label. Beware that genuine price tags can accompany counterfeit shirts.

Step 7: Security Label
A security label is located inside the shirt. It details the care symbols along with the style name and security numbers. Check the numbers and style name match the swing tag. Often there is a spare button attached which should feature the same color thread as used on the button up front.


Step 8: Logo Label
Some Hugo Boss shirts feature a small stitched in label on the side. Check the consistency of the Hugo Boss logo carefully, and that the stitching is exceptionally clean.
