SPOT A Fake!!!(Artwork NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Imply!!!)
When looking to purchase any Stone Island merchandise, remembering these costs a bomb to make, and they are by no means going to be low-cost, unless they’re second-hand or last seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to cease fakes. Holograms, spa number, merchandise numbers and so forth.. I’ve seen a whole lot of ‘real’ stone island with totally the unsuitable artwork number, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP company spa quantity on it. Here is the best way to read a Stone Island, CP Company and Stone Island Denims artwork numbers, because all have there own distinctive quantity,
That is how the Art quantity appears on the merchandise
The primary 2 numbers (39) are the yr. (This 12 months being 48(s/s)&forty nine(a/w 2008) and for every ascending number is a season) e.g 48 = spring/summer season, 49 = autumn/winter and so forth.So all even numbers are spring/summer season & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the model. ( 13=c.p.beneath sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, 16=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Company).
The subsequent quantity (4) is what the merchandise is e.g in this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts 3=trousers four = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=equipment etc.)sometimes this quantity could be a letter that is when its a flagship mannequin (extremely mild with gause badge-stainless steal or mild jacket with white badge ect)but again they do not always do it
The letter (n) is the mannequin.
The next 2 (40) are the cloth & the treatment that’s used to make the item.ie raso gomatto(cotton or cotton/satin with an internal or exterior smearing of polyurethane)or vdm (a non woven material made from a mixture of superimposed nylon/polyester fibres fused below pressure)stone island own the copy rights to hundreds of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye strategies
Every part after the / are the dye numbers and color.
So, armed with this info it must be quite a bit simpler to spot a pretend, always ask the dealer/seller for the artwork quantity. Chances are high if the merchandise would not have one then it is a faux. However allot of fakes have acquired art numbers,so additionally look for nation of origin(alot of snides haven’t got this.stone island all the time do) so make sure you verify your item with the Stone Island web site if its the present season,if its older then you definately cant verify it on their net site but you possibly can ask across the reliable boys on stone island jumper sale ebay e-bay(a few of them have guides)another great way is have a look at who’s selling the high end stuff..there are at least a dozen high lads into si on e-bay & they will be blissful to stear you away from pretend crap.. and remember if a real 2006 Stone Island jacket’s artwork number begins with 38186 then is should be a CP company sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That stated anyone can pretend a label, it actually is a minefield. oh and lots of the si labels are dyed as the entire finished garment is dyed in quite a lot of cases, so you will get red , blue , yellow labels ect, additionally stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn collectively (its a price factor!)but this does not make them low-cost , a few of the non Italian items i have are much better . ONE Thing ALL SI GARMENTS Post 1982 SHARE IS Nation OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Didn’t All the time HAVE Art NUMBERS (Earlier than FAKES) so in case your buying vintage it might not have artwork numbers..
If in doubt, test it out. If you are still unsure, then purchase at your personal threat. If it appears too good to be true, then it in all probability is. I’ve been ripped of by the market trader faux merchants myself ( on a couple of occasion) on the lookout for a bargain, but I’ve learned that you simply get what you pay for. If you want actual Stone Island then you aren’t going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and low-cost (for stone island) websites on e-bay , a popular one is Trends & Brands that sell genuine stone island and that is simply one in every of many (& masses on line off e-bay)similar to Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothing to call however a couple of (use google) .As for the chavs that buy fakes realizing it.”nobody can tell”..er sure they can, that’ll be the tittering you may hear as individuals pass by, you see FAKES AREN’T Worth The cash YOU SPEND ,when for a bit extra you can wear the actual thing!!…and everyone else can see you are too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
