Used hoodies go for around $250-$360 depending on condition.
That's what your average fake hoodie will look like they're very cheap quality and easily able to be called out upon. The prices for these will be around $20-40 dollars.
Mid Tier Reps
Now if you notice on the Mid Tier Reps the shark face is slightly off, hood is slightly too small, the tag (sellers name on paper or something the seller uses to show original pictures) is in Chinese or Japanese (legit hoodies can have a Chinese or Japanese tag but most of the time it will be fake) and they have similar carpets and low picture quality.
High Tier Reps
