This is by far one of the best SPW piece i`ve ever bought. Usually i’m not that keen on latest seasons, however when i heard there will be a yellow reflective jacket launched in spring/summer 2011 i wished this jacket so badly. There have at all times been reflective jackets in the final years, all the time in blue and silver. Nice jackets, but yellow is a “should have” color in my eyes. After i saw the vintage yellow marina reflective jacket i assumed to myself: “This colour must be re-released!” And right here we go. Truly the jacket has a lime-green colour in non-reflective state, a very nice summer colour, wich makes a good match with the white particulars. Only when gentle hits the jacket it displays in a vivid yellow.Liable for that is a garment that’s product of a special high refraction fabric capable of reflecting even the slightest amount of gentle, comparable to a single torch beam at the distance of 300 metres or weak moon mild. The fabric is coated with thousands of glass microspheres making the jacket visible in even complete darkness. It has a hid hood, wich might be hidden within the collar for those who don`t like hoods, but i believe a hood makes it even cooler..
The opinions concerning the current Stone Island efforts are very totally different in the meanwhile. We’ve got the collectors who nonetheless have love for the old days of SPW and dont price the newest efforts pretty much as good because the vintage pieces and we’ve got the people who still suppose Stone Island releases very great jackets. Well after i look at the current S/S range i can solely second that. The reflective, the heat reactive jacket, the ventile, simply to name a couple of. I feel the entire range is desirable and when i look on the upcoming autumn/winter range and the new ICE jacket, wich will probably be released… I think Stone Island still has much to offer.
