SPOT A Pretend!!!(Art NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Mean!!!)
When wanting to buy any Stone Island item, remembering these costs a bomb to make, and they’re never going to be low-cost, except they’re second-hand or final seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to cease fakes. Holograms, spa number, merchandise numbers etc… I have seen numerous ‘genuine’ stone island with totally the unsuitable art number, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP company spa quantity on it. Here is the best way to learn a Stone Island, CP Firm and Stone Island Denims art numbers, as a result of all have there personal distinctive number,
This is how the Art number appears on the merchandise
The primary 2 numbers (39) are the year. (This yr being forty eight(s/s)&49(a/w 2008) and for every ascending number is a season) e.g 48 = spring/summer, 49 = autumn/winter and so on.So all even numbers are spring/summer & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the brand. ( Thirteen=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 number (4) is what the item is e.g in this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers four = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=accessories etc.)typically this number could be a letter that is when its a flagship mannequin (ultra light with gause badge-stainless steal or gentle jacket with white badge ect)however once more they do not always do it
The letter (n) is the model.
The following 2 (forty) are the cloth & the therapy that is 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 under strain)stone island own the copy rights to 1000’s of materials, colours, dye processes and dye strategies
All the things after the / are the dye numbers and color.
So, armed with this data it should be loads simpler to spot a fake, all the time ask the dealer/vendor for the artwork quantity. Chances are high if the item would not have one then it is a pretend. But allot of fakes have acquired artwork numbers,so also look for country of origin(alot of snides haven’t obtained 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 test it on their internet site however you’ll be able to ask around the trustworthy boys on e-bay(some of them have guides)another good way is look at who’s selling the high finish stuff…there are a minimum of a dozen prime lads into si on e-bay & they will be completely satisfied to stear you away from faux crap… and remember if a real 2006 Stone Island jacket’s artwork quantity begins with 38186 then is needs to be a CP company sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That stated anybody can fake a label, it truly is a minefield. oh and lots of the si labels are dyed as the entire completed garment is dyed in a number of cases, so you’ll get red , blue , yellow labels ect, additionally stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn collectively (its a cost factor!)however this would not make them low cost , a number of the non Italian pieces i’ve are much better . ONE Thing ALL SI GARMENTS Submit 1982 SHARE IS Country OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Didn’t At all times HAVE Artwork NUMBERS (Before FAKES) so if your shopping for vintage it could not have artwork numbers…
If in doubt, check it out. In case you are nonetheless unsure, then buy at your personal risk. If it appears too good to be true, then it probably is. I have been ripped of by the market trader pretend merchants myself ( on multiple occasion) in search of a bargain, however I have discovered that you 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 low-cost (for stone island) sites on e-bay , a popular one is Trends & Brands that sell real stone island and that is just certainly one of many (& masses on stone island polo shirt grey line off e-bay)similar to Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothing to call however a number of (use google) .As for the chavs that buy fakes realizing it..”nobody can inform”…er sure they can, that’ll be the tittering you’ll be able to hear as folks move by, you see FAKES AREN’T Price The cash YOU SPEND ,when for a bit more you possibly can wear the real factor!!…..and everyone else can see you are too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
