As I used to be a daily customer to the former SI/CP outlet in Northern Italy I assume I know what I’m on about so hopefully this guide will assist you out.

It isn’t unusual to see SI jackets with CP numbers and vice versa. Hopefully this guide will enable you to keep away from the fakes as their Art numbers and unique to the vary from which it comes.
That is how the Artwork number seems on the merchandise.
The primary 2 numbers (39 on this example) point out the 12 months.
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 Firm). There isn’t a number for SI Compact as it’s a therapy and not a seperate brand.
The following quantity (four) indicates what the merchandise is. 1=shirts 2=t-shirts three=trousers 4 = Jacket, 5 = knitwear, 6 = sweatshirts 9=accessories. Often this number is replaced by a letter. This is when its a flagship mannequin.
The next 2 (forty) are the cloth & the therapy that is used to make the item. The Sportswear Firm, ultimate owners of SI & CP own the copy rights to 1000’s of materials, colours, dye processes and dye strategies. All the things after the / are the dye numbers and color.
Lengthy gone are the days when all SI/CP clothes were made in Italy, though the cloth nonetheless is. However, the country of origin labels at all times appear on the inner SpA label. Prime finish items are still made in Italy and can replicate this with a Made in Italy banner label, white on black, below the collar label.
Regardless of if it is made in Italy the country of origin will also be on the SpA label. It’s going to state Italy, stone island factory outlet uk 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 it does not have the country then it’s a faux. Generally these labels are dyed the same color as the item, however you may still be capable to read it.
Hopefully it will make it simpler for you to spot a fake. At all times ask the vendor for photos on the interior labels. If it doesn’t have one then it’s a fake. If you are a buyer and you want to see what an actual inside label appears like then e mail me and I’ll supply one. Simply remember you are searching for the Art quantity and nation of origin.
There are plenty of real 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.
