STONE ISLAND If you’re sick to the again teeth of ‘Genuine’, ‘100% Genuine’, ‘Purchased BY MY GIRLFRIEND’, ‘STAKE MY LIFE ON IT’ (and a few of them ought to), Rubbish Stone Island garments, have a read of this.
I purchased three completely different coats, Raso Gommatto (certain !) ,various sizes and all ‘Pukka’. What a load of crap! All three went back having paid what i assumed would keep me out of ‘Fakesville’ an average of £130+, let me tell you that you are waisting your Jacket money !! I moved heaven and earth to get my cash again and so do you have to.
I do personal a number of originals,bought in Firenze( Florence, Italy) with no bull promises,so this is what i do know…………
To start with, the tags ought to be identical. The sewn in tag quantity and the tie-on tag number. As stated elsewhere, 2006 objects WILL start with a forty four or forty five. If the tags don’t match, bin it.
The sewn in tag (S.P.A., Artwork and so on) WILL show country of origin(various nations involved are Italy,Romania,London..for ventile jackets(woven in Nice Britain)..and Cina….this last one is definitely China,however as with the phrase CIAO,the italians pronounce ‘C’ as ..ch…..) these international locations produce numerous components or materials and the tag will all the time read RAVARINO (Mo), ITALY in smaller print.
Subsequent,the patch buttons Might be distinctive, black with stone island etched round the outside and the middle of the button Might be a ‘+’ signal,it will make the holes where the thread goes quarter circles, NOT common holes as another button with a ‘+’ sign between them…..Since i first started scripting this,i have updated this information with information gained first hand, so, there seems to be yet one more arsehole making fakes out there, someone can now immitate the ‘+’ signal buttons, tho’ not very nicely !! The brand new batch of fake buttons have a ‘+’ sign for the eyes,But,they are DULL plastic copies,versus GLOSS S.I. originals. Also, the pretend buttons place the ‘+’ signal very deep into the button,noticeably deep. The fakes are additionally sharp edged to the inside of the button, whereas S.I. are clean. The ultimate damnation is that this, on the again of these buttons, (often the patch button ), the fakes are clean. The unique buttons have two round indentations,almost holes, on the reverse of the phrases ‘STONE’ and ‘ISLAND’ , that is the place the buttons had been held in the press.
The arm patch, a fantastic source of satisfaction, ought to be silk backed,however more importantly,it Should have the badge detail (compass and writing ) showing in FULL on the reverse side, many faux badges are solely half sewn onto the reverse
If i can not see clear footage of any garment,my initial response is they try to cover something
I hope this helps, these bastards needs to be uncovered for selling pretend gear to a,(sometimes),unsuspecting public.
The only buttons with holes will be the bigger buttons,the sleeve patch buttons and all other small buttons shall be as above
Zips are not only for doing up the jacket,they too should be quality items YKK,LAMPO and so on …not kanglidanglicheapaschipsbutrightcolourshite (mine are all YKK or LAMPO)
