so overall in your opinion is this hat authentic even though its made in china?
and also is this hat a new style or old? because of the differences between the "tm"
my opinion is authentic. Most of the hats are made in China.

It looks like a lot of the newer hats with that style of crystal are missing the TM.

That hat is a new style. They just started putting those crystals recently.

really?? imo i think its a fake. i noticed the top button D.E.H. is silver its usually dark and shady silver. the tags dont show microstitching and theres suppose to be a tag of a panther. Plus that ed hardy tag beside it, its not attached. ..watch out i feel the hat is shady.
imo fake but im not that pro.
you can easily tell in person if its real or fake, but not by picture. the rhinestones are very shiny under light. ;score those rhinestones are round? .. fishy.. the TM isnt there and the hook beginning with the letter "E" in ED Hardy isnt even curved all the way down but rather straight.

ok now im 100% sure its a fake.

the word "Ed Hardy" isnt even detailed it looks exactly like this its a knockoff. plus your hats rhinestones are round its suppose to be cut. im positive its a fake and you can bring it to the store and you'll get the same answers.
Ed Hardy Hat. - White and dark blue. CHEAP! read for details. <---- your hat looks exactly like this knock off. its worthless. looks very bad in person.




p.s. those pictures look like it came from this link ED HARDY TIGER RHINESTONE TRUCKER HAT

<a href="http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=edhardymyku7.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/773/edhardymyku7.th.jpg" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us" /></a> notice this hat doesnt have a TM but its real because the rhinestones are cut and the word "ed hardy" is very fine detailed, ex its well done very thin and not thick, hard to replicate its fine work. Notice the top button hat is dark shady silver. vintage looking.

A lot of the new hats have those round rhinestones on them and not the cut ones. I thought that they were fakes when I saw em on eBay but they are selling hats at the EH store on Melrose with those round rhinestones. Its very hard to see that in the photos on EH website though.

the tags dont show microstitching and theres suppose to be a tag of a panther. Plus that ed hardy tag beside it,
the OP already purchased the hat and probably took that tag off themselves.

Also the OP said the tag has mircostitch. That is on the back of the tag which we cannot see in the photos.

Also whats this panther tag you are talking about. Post a photo.

looking at that hat and seeing pics of some of the previous hats i've sold i have noticed a few things different.

First, the Ed Hardy signature is way too low



compare that to these where the EH sig is more higher up









Secondly, on the OP's hat there are only two lines/threads of stitching below the EH sig when there is supposed to be 4 lines of stitching.

Lastly, the hologram sticker on the OP's hat looks like crap. It's not as shiny, the tiger image doesn't look good and it seems to be missing a serial number



compared to an authentic hologram



Also i thought all EH hats were made in the USA. The hats i posted above all said made int the USA. Somebody can correct me if I am wrong. I know CA hats are made in China but as far as i know all Ed Hardy hats should say made in the USA.

ok I live a few blocks from the Flagship store in Los Angeles. I have stated many times that the majority of the hats are made in China ... unless of course everyone here would like to tell me the Ed Hardy store is selling fakes. I have looked at probably 50 - 60% of the hats in the store and I have not seen a single one made in the USA. Same with Christian Audigier hats - I have not seen any made in the USA.

Maybe they slap a made in the USA tag on the hats that are going to Canada for NAFTA purposes or something? Yelnats please post up some photos of the tags on your hats.

I will walk my ass down to the store as soon as I have time and take a look. I will look for this hat or similar hats and compare em.

They have also been selling samples at the Melrose location and a lot of it has different tags or no tags and the designs are not quite right on all of em.

Also OP please post a photo of the microstitch.

I've sold all my hats and unfortunately i never took tag pics of them but the next time i get one i will take a tag pic. Even if EH hats are made in China you can't deny that this hat is off compared to authentic ones (ie. EH sig is stitched lower, missing 2 more lines of stitching below the EH sig, and the crappy hologram sticker).

I don't think the lower stitch is a good indicator of authenticity. I found 2 hats on the site w/ lower stitch:

Ed Hardy Specialty Zodiac Cap, Aries

Ed Hardy Specialty Corduroy Cap, Dragon-Pink/Light Blue

its hard to see it on the dragon hat but that stitch is definitely lower.

yeah I have never seen that tag on em.

The majority of the hats I have seen at the Melrose store have the 2 black tags.

One says Ed Hardy by Christan Audigier - on the back is microstitch. On the other tag it has the material content and they say made in China.

Do the hats you have have the Ed Hardy by Christan Audigier w/ microstitch on the back or just that made in the USA tag?

I don't think those two hats are a good comparison because they aren't rhinestone hats. Yes the sig is lower on those hats but maybe its because they have the design running down the hat. If you compare the OP rhinestone hat to all the other rhinestone hats on their site you won't find one that has the sig placed that far down from the cap.
