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 cheap, except they’re second-hand or final seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to cease fakes. Holograms, spa number, merchandise numbers etc… I have seen quite a lot of ‘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 learn how 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 first 2 numbers (39) are the 12 months. (This year being 48(s/s)&49(a/w 2008) and for every ascending quantity is a season) e.g 48 = spring/summer, 49 = 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.under sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, 16=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Firm).
The following number (four) is what the merchandise is e.g on this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers 4 = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=equipment etc.)sometimes this quantity is likely to be a letter this is when its a flagship model (extremely gentle with gause badge-stainless steal or light jacket with white badge ect)but again they don’t at all times do it
The letter (n) is the model.
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 inner or external smearing of polyurethane)or vdm (a non woven material made from a mixture of superimposed nylon/polyester fibres marca stone island fused underneath pressure)stone island own the copy rights to thousands of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye methods
Everything after the / are the dye numbers and color.
So, armed with this info it must be rather a lot easier to identify a faux, always ask the supplier/vendor for the artwork number. Likelihood is if the merchandise does not have one then it’s a faux. However allot of fakes have received artwork numbers,so additionally search for nation of origin(alot of snides have not got this..stone island at all times do) so remember to verify your item with the Stone Island webpage if its the present season,if its older you then cant test it on their internet site however you possibly can ask around the trustworthy boys on e-bay(a few of them have guides)another good way is have a look at who’s selling the high finish stuff…there are at the least a dozen high lads into si on e-bay & they will be happy to stear you away from fake crap… and remember if a genuine 2006 Stone Island jacket’s artwork quantity begins with 38186 then is ought to be a CP company sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That stated anybody can fake a label, it actually is a minefield. oh and a lot of the si labels are dyed as the whole completed garment is dyed in lots of circumstances, so you will get crimson , blue , yellow labels ect, also stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn together (its a price thing!)but this does not make them cheap , some 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 Art NUMBERS (Earlier than FAKES) so in case your buying vintage it may not have art numbers…
If in doubt, test it out. If you’re still unsure, then buy at your personal risk. If it appears too good to be true, then it in all probability is. I’ve been ripped of by the market trader faux merchants myself ( on a couple of occasion) looking for a bargain, however I’ve discovered that you get what you pay for. In order for you real Stone Island then you are not going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and cheap (for stone island) websites on e-bay , a preferred one is Tendencies & Brands that promote genuine stone island and that’s just certainly one of many (& masses on line off e-bay)resembling Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothing to name but a number of (use google) .As for the chavs that purchase fakes figuring out it..”nobody can inform”…er sure they can, that’ll be the tittering you’ll be able to hear as people move by, you see FAKES AREN’T Value The cash YOU SPEND ,when for a bit extra you possibly can put on the true thing!!…..and everyone else can see you are too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
