[Pickup] Stone Island Prototype Reflective Jacket
I got a size M, which is my usual Stone Island dimension. I put on a big in a whole lot of sports manufacturers like nike and adidas, and M in Supreme, Cav Empt and Acronym. I’m an S in Arcteryx (though that varies very widely on the particular piece).
It’s extremely oversized though. I’m not too tall (about 5’10) however it goes past the rise on my pants. The front pockets give it a bit of structure aliexpress stone island though, so it would not actually fit too broad (a minimum of compared to how vast it actually is).
The quality is great. I have a couple Arcteryx, Outlier and Acronym jackets and this is by far thicker than Arcteryx and Acronym jackets, but probably lower than Outlier’s merino Stone Island Jackets lined bomber. Nonetheless, it’s also the least breathable and I really desire Arcteryx’s pit zips.
After all, the reason behind the price tag is the unbelievable fabric and paint. The fabric itself is already reflective, and each layer of paint (the shade and the graphic are separate layers) add even more reflectivity. As you’ll be able to see from the pictures, it shines from the light in my aliexpress stone island room, and it’s incredibly shiny underneath the digicam’s flash. What’s pretty cool is that even in very low light conditions (lights off in my room, only light is from streetlights outdoors), it still kind of shimmers.
It is hand painted and then the graphic is laser Island printed. What’s interesting is that this means that some patches of the jacket isn’t truly painted. The jacket’s personal color is gray, and then the paint is a matte gold. Because the jacket is mainly laid flat after which laser printed, there are certain elements, in particular the sleeves, that do not have the graphic. Unsure how I really feel about it. The Acronym x Nemen J28-K also has these imperfections from dyeing, however these are a lot less conspicuous, and on this jacket it nearly feels lazy, quite than a aspect end result from a really masterful craft.
Do I like it I feel it’s actually cool from manufacturing perspective, but as far because the fit goes, it’s nowhere near Acronym nor even Arcteryx’s ranges. I originally wished this for techy suits that might nonetheless be used on biking commutes, in order that the tech would serve a purpose, however between the size and the way thick it’s, I do not think that is a good idea. To be sincere, the jacket type of jogs my memory of a snowboarding jacket. I do not really know the way I really feel about snowboarding in a 1300 dollar jacket although.
All in all, I feel it was actually cool to see it with my very own eyes, feel it in my palms and put it on for a number of seconds, however I believe because of the sizing, I’ll be returning it. Going price appears to be ~seven-hundred above retail, however I would be too paranoid promoting one thing so expensive on eBay or Grailed.
