To keep away from buying a chunk of market stall rubbish follow this straightforward information relating to SpA/Artwork numbers and nations of origin.

When looking to buy any Stone Island or CP Company items remember there are safeguards that can assist you spot fakes similar to holograms, SpA numbers, merchandise numbers and country of origin labels.
I have seen a whole lot of fake Stone Island / Stone Island Denims/Stone Island Compact/CP Firm clothes with completely the incorrect SpA stone island 10k quantity. It isn’t uncommon to see SI jackets with CP numbers and vice versa. Hopefully this guide will assist you keep away from the fakes as their Art numbers and unique to the vary from which it comes.
This is how the Artwork number seems on the merchandise.
The first 2 numbers (39 on this example) indicate the yr.
50 = Spring/Summer & fifty one = Autumn/ Winter and so on.
The second 2 numbers (15) are the brand. ( 15 = Stone Island, 14 = Stone Island Denims and 18 = CP Company). There is no such thing as a number for SI Compact as it’s a treatment and never a seperate brand.
The following number (four) signifies what the item is. 1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers four = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=accessories. Sometimes this number is replaced by a letter. This is when its a flagship model.
The subsequent 2 (40) are the cloth & the therapy that’s used to make the merchandise. The Sportswear Company, ultimate owners of SI & CP personal the copy rights to thousands of supplies, colours, dye processes and dye techniques. All the things after the / are the dye numbers and color.
Long gone are the times when all SI/CP clothes have been made in Italy, though the cloth nonetheless is. Nevertheless, the nation of origin labels at all times seem on the internal SpA label. Top finish gadgets are still made in Italy and will reflect this with a Made in Italy banner label, white on black, beneath the collar label.
No matter if it’s made in Italy the country of origin will also be on the SpA label. It’s going to state Italy, Tunisia, Rumania or if a Piuma D’oca, Indonesia with some accessories and SID now made in China, spelt Cina on the label, Mauritius Island and Portugal. If stone island 10k it does not have the country then it is a fake. Sometimes these labels are dyed the identical color because the merchandise, but you may nonetheless be capable to read it.
Hopefully this will make it simpler for you to spot a pretend. At all times ask the seller for pictures on the interior labels. If it does not have one then it is a pretend. If you’re a buyer and also you need to see what a real inside label seems to be like then electronic mail me and I will provide one. Just remember you are searching for the Art quantity and country of origin.
There are many genuine sellers of SI and CP on ebay. If you’re in doubt then ask them, they, like me, are sick of all of the snide gear.
