SPOT A Pretend!!!(Art NUMBERS & WHAT THEY Imply!!!)
When trying to purchase any Stone Island merchandise, remembering these prices a bomb to make, and they’re by no means going to be low cost, except they’re second-hand or final seasons catalogue. There are safeguards to stop fakes. Holograms, spa number, item numbers and so stone island grey hoodie forth… I have seen lots of ‘real’ stone island with completely the improper artwork number, e.g stone island coat/jacket with a CP company spa number on it. Right here is how you can read a Stone Island, CP Company and Stone Island Denims art numbers, as a result of all have there own distinctive quantity,
This is how the Artwork number seems on the merchandise
The first 2 numbers (39) are the year. (This year being forty eight(s/s)&49(a/w 2008) and for each ascending number is a season) e.g forty eight = spring/summer, forty nine = autumn/winter and so forth.So all even numbers are spring/summer & odds are autumn/winter
The second 2 numbers (15) are the model. ( Thirteen=c.p.under sixteen 14=s.i.denims 15 = Stone Island, sixteen=s.i.junior 20=c.p.donna and 18 = CP Firm).
The subsequent quantity (four) is what the item is e.g in this case (1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers 4 = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=equipment etc.)generally this number could be a letter that is when its a flagship mannequin (extremely light with gause badge-stainless steal or mild jacket with white badge ect)however again they do not always do it
The letter (n) is the model.
The next 2 (40) are the cloth & the remedy that is used to make the item.ie raso gomatto(cotton or cotton/satin with an inside or exterior smearing of polyurethane)or vdm (a non woven materials made from a mix of superimposed nylon/polyester fibres fused underneath stress)stone island personal the copy rights to 1000’s of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye strategies
Every thing after the / are the dye numbers and colour.
So, armed with this information it ought to be loads easier to identify a pretend, all the time ask the dealer/vendor for the art quantity. Likelihood is if the merchandise would not have one then it is a fake. But allot of fakes have got artwork numbers,so also look for nation of origin(alot of snides have not bought this..stone island all the time do) so you should definitely verify your merchandise with the Stone Island website if its the current season,if its older then you cant examine it on their web site however you possibly can ask across the trustworthy boys on e-bay(a few of them have guides)one other good way is have a look at who’s promoting the high end stuff…there are at least a dozen prime lads into si on e-bay & they are going to be blissful to stear you away from fake crap… and remember if a genuine 2006 Stone Island jacket’s artwork quantity begins with 38186 then is should be a CP firm sweatshirt from autumn/winter 2002.
That said anyone can pretend a label, it really is a minefield. oh and a number of the si labels are dyed as the whole completed garment is dyed in a number of circumstances, so you’re going to get pink , blue , yellow labels ect, additionally stone island send their garments to Tunisia & rumainia to be sewn collectively (its a value factor!)but this doesn’t make them cheap , some of the non Italian pieces i’ve are far better . ONE Factor ALL SI GARMENTS Put up 1982 SHARE IS Country OF ORIGIN , PRE 1986 Didn’t Always HAVE Art NUMBERS (Before FAKES) so in case your buying vintage it could not have artwork numbers…
If in doubt, test it out. If you’re nonetheless unsure, then purchase at your personal risk. If it seems too good to be true, then it in all probability is. I’ve been ripped of by the market trader faux merchants myself ( on multiple occasion) on the lookout for a bargain, however I’ve learned that you get what you pay for. If you want real Stone Island then you are not going to get it for £30.00.
There are some good and low-cost (for stone island) websites on e-bay , a preferred one is Tendencies & Manufacturers that sell genuine stone island and that is just certainly one of many (& hundreds on line off e-bay)reminiscent of Mainline/Brown bag/Swerve & Cruise clothing to name however a few (use google) .As for the chavs that buy fakes knowing it..”nobody can tell”…er sure they can, that’ll be the tittering you can hear as people pass by, you see FAKES AREN’T Price The money YOU SPEND ,when for a bit extra you can wear the true factor!!…..and everybody else can see you might be too !!!
Thanks & i hope this helps
