STONE ISLAND FAKES / HOW To inform
STONE ISLAND If you are sick to the again teeth of ‘Authentic’, ‘a hundred% Genuine’, ‘Purchased BY MY GIRLFRIEND’, ‘STAKE MY LIFE ON IT’ (and a few of them ought to), Garbage Stone Island garments, have a read of this.
I purchased three different coats, Raso Gommatto (positive !) ,numerous sizes and all ‘Pukka’. What a load of crap! All three went again having paid what i assumed would keep me out of ‘Fakesville’ a median of £130+, let me let you know that you’re waisting your cash !! I moved heaven and earth to get my money back and so must you.
I do personal several originals,purchased in Firenze( Florence, Italy) with no bull promises,so this is what i do know……
Initially, the tags ought to be similar. The sewn in tag number and the tie-on tag number. As said stone island khaki tracksuit elsewhere, 2006 objects WILL start with a forty four or 45. If the tags do not match, bin it.
The sewn in tag (S.P.A, Artwork and so forth) WILL show country of origin(varied international locations concerned are Italy,Romania,London.for ventile jackets(woven in Great Britain).and Cina..this last one is definitely China,however as with the word CIAO,the italians pronounce ‘C’ as .ch…) these international locations produce varied components or materials and the tag will always learn RAVARINO (Mo), ITALY in smaller print.
Next,the patch buttons Will probably be distinctive, black with stone island etched round the outside and the middle of the button Will likely be a ‘+’ sign,this may make the holes where the thread goes quarter circles, NOT common holes as any other button with a ‘+’ sign between them…Since i first started scripting this,i’ve updated this information with data gained first hand, so, there appears to be one more arsehole making fakes on the market, someone can now immitate the ‘+’ sign buttons, tho’ not very well !! The new batch of pretend buttons have a ‘+’ signal for the eyes,But,they’re DULL plastic copies,versus GLOSS S.I. originals. Additionally, the faux buttons place the ‘+’ sign very deep into the button,noticeably deep. The fakes are additionally sharp edged to the inside of the button, whereas S.I. are easy. The final damnation is this, on the again of these buttons, (often the patch button ), the fakes are smooth. The unique buttons have two spherical indentations,nearly holes, on the reverse of the phrases ‘STONE’ and ‘ISLAND’ , that is the place the buttons have been held in the press.
The arm patch, an ideal source of delight, must be silk backed,however extra importantly,it Will need to have the badge detail (compass and writing ) exhibiting in FULL on the reverse facet, many pretend badges are only half sewn onto the reverse
If i can’t see clear footage of any garment,my preliminary reaction is they are attempting to hide one thing
I hope this helps, these bastards must be exposed for selling faux gear to a,(sometimes),unsuspecting public.
The only buttons with holes will be the bigger buttons,the sleeve patch buttons and all other small buttons will be as above
Zips will not be only for doing up the jacket,they too should be high quality items YKK,LAMPO and so on ..not kanglidanglicheapaschipsbutrightcolourshite (mine are all YKK or LAMPO)
Subsequent is the sizing, go on the stoneisland.co.uk site and you will note the european measurement chart is totally different to ours. A jacket marked M, Shall be a small in our sizing, L medium and XL obviously giant.
