I looked for an official Off White thread to pose this question but couldnt find one unless I'm blind so im asking in this thread.
ive tried to come up with an answer for a few weeks now and failed,so i ask the forum.
is this fake or just an older legit piece,you will note the street adress is seen on some some older pieces but the new pieces have the current Milan one.
thanks in advance

Firstly, what is Off-White "TIVI" supposed to be? His items often say "MAIN LABEL", but that is tongue-in-cheek; there aren't any diffusion lines. Secondly, "Mirror Mirror" was the name of men's SS17, so no, it couldn't be from an older collection. Thirdly, I don't know there have been any (legit) Made in China pieces so far, but if there were, they would at the very least get the name of the country right in the various translations - this one always says "Chinese" where it should be Cina (Italian), Chine (French) and China (Spanish). Fourthly, and this is a dead giveaway, the small trademark symbol "TM" is missing everywhere. Genuine pieces have "TM" behind every occurrence of the label name, so either behind "Abloh" or behind "White" (if the "c/o..." bit is omitted), including on the "MAIN LABEL" label inside the neck, where it's missing twice on this piece. The only place where genuine items may also omit the "TM" is the name of the brand directly above the Milan street address (the address itself is fine btw), but it's missing again behind the smaller-print brand name at the bottom of both the fabric composition tag and the "Made in ..." tag.

That's one of the most disgusting fingers I've seen in my life too.
