SPOT A Fake!!!(Artwork NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Mean!!!)
When wanting to purchase any Stone Island item, remembering these prices a bomb to make, and they are by no means going to be cheap, unless they’re second-hand or last seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to cease fakes. Holograms, spa quantity, merchandise numbers and so forth… I’ve seen a stone island cargo shorts black number of ‘genuine’ stone island with totally the incorrect art quantity, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP company spa quantity on it. Here is tips on how to read a Stone Island, CP Firm and Stone Island Denims artwork numbers, because all have there own distinctive quantity,
That is how the Art number seems on the merchandise
The primary 2 numbers (39) are the yr. (This yr being forty eight(s/s)&forty nine(a/w 2008) and for every ascending quantity is a season) e.g forty eight = spring/summer season, 49 = autumn/winter and so on.So all even numbers are spring/summer & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the model. ( Thirteen=c.p.below sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, 16=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Company).
The following number (4) is what the merchandise is e.g in this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts 3=trousers four = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=equipment and many others.)sometimes this number is perhaps a letter this is when its a flagship model (extremely gentle with gause badge-stainless steal or light jacket with white badge ect)however once more they don’t at all times do it
The letter (n) is the model.
The following 2 (forty) are the cloth & the treatment that is used to make the merchandise.ie raso gomatto(cotton or cotton/satin with an internal or external smearing of polyurethane)or vdm (a non woven materials made from a mix of superimposed nylon/polyester fibres fused underneath stress)stone island own the copy rights to hundreds of materials, colours, dye processes and dye techniques
All the pieces after the / are the dye numbers and colour.
So, armed with this info it ought to be so much simpler to spot a faux, always ask the dealer/seller for the artwork quantity. Likelihood is if the merchandise doesn’t have one then it is a faux. But allot of fakes have received artwork numbers,so also search for country of origin(alot of snides haven’t obtained this..stone island always do) so be sure you examine your item with the Stone Island website if its the present season,if its older then you cant test it on their net site but you possibly can ask across the reliable boys on e-bay(some of them have guides)another great way is look at who’s selling the excessive end stuff…there are at the very least a dozen top lads into si on e-bay & they will be completely satisfied to stear you away from faux crap… and remember if a genuine 2006 Stone Island jacket’s art quantity begins with 38186 then is needs to be a CP company sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That mentioned anyone can fake a label, it truly is a minefield. oh and a lot of the si labels are dyed as the entire finished garment is dyed in loads of cases, so you will get purple , blue , yellow labels ect, also stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn collectively (its a cost factor!)but this would not make them low cost , a few of the non Italian items i’ve are much better . ONE Thing ALL SI GARMENTS Put up 1982 SHARE IS Nation OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Didn’t Always HAVE Art NUMBERS (Earlier than FAKES) so in case your shopping for vintage it could not have artwork numbers…
If in doubt, test it out. If you’re still not sure, then purchase at your personal danger. If it seems to be too good to be true, then it probably is. I have been ripped of by the market trader pretend merchants myself ( on more than one occasion) searching for a bargain, but I have discovered that you get what you pay for. If you’d like actual Stone Island then you aren’t going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and cheap (for stone island) websites on e-bay , a preferred one is Developments & Manufacturers that sell genuine stone island and that’s just one in all many (& hundreds on line off e-bay)equivalent to Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothes to name however a number of (use google) .As for the chavs that purchase fakes realizing it..”no one can tell”…er yes they’ll, that’ll be the tittering you may hear as individuals move by, you see FAKES AREN’T Worth The cash YOU SPEND ,when for a bit more you possibly can put on the real factor!!…..and everybody else can see you are too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
