SPOT A Pretend!!!(Art NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Mean!!!)
When wanting to purchase any Stone Island item, remembering these costs 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 stop fakes. Holograms, spa number, merchandise numbers etc.. I have seen plenty of ‘genuine’ stone island with completely the improper art number, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP firm spa number on it. Right here is easy methods to learn a Stone Island, CP Firm and Stone Island Denims art numbers, because all have there personal distinctive number,
That is how the Artwork number appears on the item
The primary 2 numbers (39) are the year. (This yr being forty eight(s/s)&forty nine(a/w 2008) and for each ascending number is a season) e.g 48 = spring/summer time, forty nine = autumn/winter and so on.So all even numbers are spring/summer time & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the model. ( 13=c.p.beneath sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, sixteen=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Firm).
The next number (4) is what the merchandise is e.g in this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers 4 = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=accessories and so on.)typically this quantity might be a letter that is when its a flagship mannequin (ultra gentle with gause badge-stainless steal or mild jacket with white badge ect)however 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 stress)stone island own the copy rights to hundreds of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye strategies
Every little thing after the / are the dye numbers and color.
So, armed with this info it must be lots simpler to identify a faux, always ask the dealer/vendor for the art quantity. Chances are if the item would not have one then it is a faux. However allot of fakes have obtained artwork numbers,so also search for country of origin(alot of snides have not bought this.stone island always do) so you’ll want to examine your merchandise with the Stone Island website if its the present season,if its older you then cant examine it on their web site however you can ask across the trustworthy boys on e-bay(some of them have guides)one other good way is take a look at who’s promoting the excessive end stuff..there are not less than a dozen prime lads into si on e-bay & they are going to be completely happy to stear you away from fake crap.. and remember if a genuine 2006 Stone Island jacket’s art quantity begins with 38186 then is needs to be a CP firm sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That said anybody can fake a label, it truly is a minefield. oh and quite a lot of the si labels are dyed as the whole completed garment is stone island shadow project mussola gommata field jacket dyed in loads of instances, so you’re going to get purple , blue , yellow labels ect, also stone island ship their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn together (its a value thing!)however this doesn’t make them cheap , among the non Italian pieces i’ve are far better . ONE Factor ALL SI GARMENTS Put up 1982 SHARE IS Nation OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Did not At all times HAVE Artwork NUMBERS (Before FAKES) so if your shopping for vintage it may not have art numbers..
If in doubt, check it out. In case you are nonetheless not sure, then buy at your own risk. If it looks too good to be true, then it most likely is. I have been ripped of by the market trader fake merchants myself ( on multiple occasion) in search of a bargain, however I have discovered that you get what you pay for. If you would like actual Stone Island then you are not going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and cheap (for stone island) sites on e-bay , a well-liked one is Traits & Manufacturers that promote real stone island and that’s simply certainly one of many (& loads on line off e-bay)equivalent to Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothing to name but a number of (use google) .As for the chavs that purchase fakes knowing it.”no one can inform”..er yes they will, that’ll be the tittering you possibly can hear as folks move by, you see FAKES AREN’T Worth The cash YOU SPEND ,when for a bit extra you can wear the true thing!!…and everybody else can see you’re too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
