SPOT A Faux!!!(Art NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Mean!!!)
When wanting to buy any Stone Island item, remembering these prices a bomb to make, and they are never going to be cheap, until they are second-hand or last seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to cease fakes. Holograms, spa quantity, item numbers etc… I have seen quite a lot of ‘genuine’ stone island with completely the wrong art number, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP firm spa quantity on it. Right here is tips on how to learn a Stone Island, CP Firm and Stone Island Denims art numbers, as a result of all have stone island membrana tc black there own distinctive quantity,
This is how the Art number appears on the item
The first 2 numbers (39) are the yr. (This yr being forty eight(s/s)&49(a/w 2008) and for every ascending quantity is a season) e.g 48 = spring/summer time, 49 = autumn/winter and so forth.So all even numbers are spring/summer time & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the brand. ( 13=c.p.underneath sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, sixteen=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Company).
The following quantity (4) is what the merchandise is e.g on this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers four = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=equipment and so on.)sometimes this number may be a letter this is when its a flagship mannequin (ultra light with gause badge-stainless steal or gentle jacket with white badge ect)but once more they don’t always do it
The letter (n) is the model.
The next 2 (40) are the cloth & the treatment that’s used to make the merchandise.ie raso gomatto(cotton or cotton/satin with an inner or exterior smearing of polyurethane)or vdm (a non woven material made from a mix of superimposed nylon/polyester fibres fused below strain)stone island personal the copy rights to 1000’s of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye methods
Every little thing after the / are the dye numbers and colour.
So, armed with this data it must be so much simpler to identify a fake, always ask the supplier/seller for the art number. Chances are if the merchandise doesn’t have one then it is a faux. But allot of fakes have bought artwork numbers,so also look for nation of origin(alot of snides have not obtained this..stone island at all times do) so be sure to examine your item with the Stone Island website if its the present season,if its older you then cant verify it on their internet site however you possibly can ask across the reliable boys on e-bay(some of them have guides)one other great way is look at who’s promoting the excessive end stuff…there are at least a dozen prime lads into si on e-bay stone island membrana tc black & they are going to be glad to stear you away from pretend crap… and remember if a genuine 2006 Stone Island jacket’s art number begins with 38186 then is needs to be a CP company sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That stated anybody can faux a label, it really is a minefield. oh and numerous the si labels are dyed as the entire finished garment is dyed in lots of circumstances, so you will get red , blue , yellow labels ect, also stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn together (its a price thing!)however this would not make them low-cost , among the non Italian items i’ve are far better . ONE Factor ALL SI GARMENTS Put up 1982 SHARE IS Country OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Didn’t At all times HAVE Art NUMBERS (Earlier than FAKES) so in case your shopping for vintage it may not have art numbers…
If in doubt, check it out. If you are still not sure, then buy at your own threat. If it seems 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) looking for a bargain, but I’ve discovered that you just get what you pay for. If you’d like real Stone Island then you are not going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and cheap (for stone island) websites on e-bay , a popular one is Trends & Brands that sell real stone island and that’s simply one in every of many (& loads on line off e-bay)equivalent to Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothes to name however a few (use google) .As for the chavs that buy fakes understanding it..”no one can tell”…er yes they’ll, that’ll be the tittering you can hear as individuals go by, you see FAKES AREN’T Value The money YOU SPEND ,when for a bit more you can put on the real factor!!…..and everyone else can see you might be too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
