THERE ARE MANY C.P. AND STONE ISLAND FAKES AND ITS A REAL SHAME FOR BOTH SELLERS AND BUYERS, FOR A GOOD CHANCE TO AVOID, ASK QUESTIONS AND GET A FEEL FOR THE SELLER. ASK FOR EXTRA PICS IF YOU ARE NOT SURE MOST SELLERS WOULD DO SO IF THEY WANNA SELL OR MIGHT EXPLAIN WITH A LITTLE MORE INFO.

MOST FAKE OF STONE ISLAND ARE COPIES OF RASOGAMATOS THIS TRANSLATES TO RUBBERISED COTTON SO THE OUTSIDE SHOULD BE OF COTTON FABRIC AND THE INSIDE IS RUBBER BACKED SO IS A KINDA PLASTIC. MANY HAVE INSDE LABEL ON THE BODY THAT SAYS THAT IT IS A RASO BUT JUST LOOK AROUND THAT LABEL AS IT SHOULD BE PLASTIC AS HARD PROCESS TO FAKE AND MANY FAKES WITH YELLOW STRIPE DOWN ZIP.

EXAMPLE OF FAKE RASO

ALSO GOGGLE JACKETS ARE FAKED REAL ONES HAVE TIME PIECES ON CUFF (OLDER SUMMER ONES) AND WINTER ONES DONT THERE ARE LOADS OF DUSTBIN GOGGLES THE HALF LEATHER IN THIS CASE PLASTIC MAINLY IN BLACK  OTHER FAKES ARE COTTON FABRIC AND SO IF YOU GET IT FOR £80 BUY IT NOW DO NOT BUY IT AS REAL SELLER WILL NEVER LET 'EM GO FOR LESS THAN £100 THIS DOESNT ME THAT ITS REAL BUT IT RULES OUT 90% OF FAKES OUT THERE.

FAKE HALF LEATHER MILLE

GUYS LOOK AT DETAIL BAD LONG SHOTS PICS AVOID THEM AS YOU CANT SEE C.P. DETAILS TO JUGDE REAL FROM FAKE.

THE EXPLOROR JACKET WEAR THE FACE IS COVERED WITH ZIP DOWN IT AND RABBIT FUR AROUND ARE REAL AS ITS TO HARD TO FAKE THE RABBIT FUR AND DETAILS ON THE HOOD, BUT AGAIN MAKE SURE THERE ARE GOOD QUALITY PICS AND THE ALL IMPORTANT ART NUMBER.IF EXPLOROR WITHOUT RABBIT FUR AND IS NOT HEMP IT IS FAKE

ALSO GUYS LOOK OUT FOR SOME FAKES WITH LAMPO COPY ZIPS MADE BY KANGOL IN BLACK I HAVE SEEN THESE TOO (THANKS FOR INFO MARK).

I HAVE SEEN STONE ISLAND FAKE COATS WITH FAKE FUR AVOID THESE AS YOU CAN BUY THE SAME COAT FROM THE MAKET FOR £5. WITH KNITS, THE FAKE ONES ARE WITH RIBBED DOWN THE ARMS WHICH WAS NEVER DONE WITH STONEY AND EVEN BRIGHT PINK AGAIN FAKE COPIES. SOME FAKE ARE GETTING HARD TO SPOT AS THEY NAIL REAL BADGES AND USE REAL BUTTONS (IF PLASTIC AVOID AS BUTTONS ARE NUT OR BRASS NEVER PLASTIC)

BUT LOOK OUT FOR THE ONES I'VE MENTIONED FELLAS AND YOU WONT FALL PRAY AND ONE LAST ADVISE IS NEVER BID AT THE LAST MIN ON A ITEM THAT YOU SEE IS GOING FOR A SONG AS THERE IS A REASON WHY, SEE IF OTHERS BID AND WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY BUY AS IF THEY ARE C.P. BUYERS THEN THEY ONLY BID ON REAL CLOBBER PEOPLE SELLING FAKES HAVE MANY OF THE SAME ITEM WHY...BECAUSE ITS FAKE.

IF ITEM IS NEW THE BUYER MUST HAVE A GOOD REASON FOR SELLING IT AND SOME DO THEY HAVE NICKED IT (ONLY KIDDING).

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AND WILL NEVER BE WOMENS STONE ISLAND SO KEEP CLEAR OF THESE SO WHATS WORSE THAN A WOMEN IN FAKE STONEY YUCK C.P. PRODUCE C.P. DONNA THAT IS GREAT AND FOR KIDS BOTH STONEY AND C.P. COMPANY ARE MADE.

IT IS A REAL SHAME THAT THE ITEMS ARE NOT ALL MADE IN ITALY BUT SPW WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO AND EVEN ON KEY PIECES LIKE THE MILLIES, GARMENTS ARE MADE IN ROMANIA TUNISIA AND EVEN CHINA, I WAS TOLD BY CARL AT FOUR MARKETING THAT THESE PLACES HAVE MACHINERY TO PRODUCE CUTTNG EDGE PROCESSES CAN BE DONE ONLY IN CHINA AS THEY OWN EXPENSIVE TAPING AND OTHER TOP NOCH STUFF, IT DOES MAKE SENCE BUT WE WANT ITALIAN CASUAL WEAR PLZ AND I THINK ITS ABOUT COST BUT IT COST US TOP DOLLOR SO GET IT BACK TO ITALY, AS THE CRAFTMANSHIP IS POORER THAN NON-ITALIAN WEAR EVEN IF ITS MADE BY THE SAME PEOPLE!

HISTORY:

JUST A FEW FACTS DID YOU KNOW STONE ISLAND WAS NAMED AFTER MASSIMO OSTI'S  SAILING BOAT (STONE ISLAND MERINA) OSTI THE TOP DUDE HAS NOW SADLY PASSED ON. GUYS READ UP ON C.P. COMANY AS IS A BETTER BRAND IN CUTS AND DESIGN AND ITS GETTING BETTER I.E GOOGLE GOR-TEX. STONE ISLAND AND C.P. LAST SEASON IS A HOMMAGE TO THE GREAT MAN AFTER HIS DEATH.

C.P.ORIGINS LIE IN A SMALL ITALIAN TOWN OF RAVARINO. ORGINALLY LAUNCHED IN 1974 AS CHESTER PERRY, LATER AFTER A DISPUTE WITH FRED PERRY (CAUAL)AND CHESTER BARRY (TAILORED) IT BECAME C.P. COMPANY OSTI VISTED LONDON WHERE HE LOVED SAVILLE ROW AND TOOK IDEA FOR HIS NEW LABEL C.P.COMPANY. THE BRAND MADE  INFORMAL CLOTHING. C.P. VISION IS WITH RESEARCH INTO FABRIC AND GARMENT TECHOLOGY WITH GROUND BREAK ING DESIGN, THE GOGGLE JACKET (MILLE MIGLIA) TRANSLATED TO 1000 MILE THIS WAS A HISTORIC RACE THROUGH ITALIAN COUNTRY MUD WAS A ISSUE-HENCE EYE PIECES TO PROTECT. C.P. SUPPORTED THE RACE AND MADE THE COMMEMORATIVE JACKET AND GAVE IT TO THE MARSHALS AND LATER TO US.

MOST GARMNTS ARE GARMENT DYED THIS MEANS THAT THE GARMENT IS CUT AND MADE BEFORE BEING PUT IN DYE (CERAMIC WASH THIS IS DYED WITH METAL FOIL, EARTH DYE USING SOIL FORM GERMANY CYPRUS PUT IN WITH DYE) THE ARE 60,000 DYE FORMULAS IN THE COMPANY FILES AND THEY EXPERIMENT WITH RUBERISING, COATING AND SOPHISTICATED DOUBLE DYEING OPERATION THIS FAR BEYOND AND OTHER BRANDS CAN DO, THEY TRY BUT FAIL TO MATCH. MASSIMO OSTI  COLLECTED 65,000 OR SO WORKWEAR AND MILITARY WHICH AT THAT TIME WAS DESTROYED HE HAD THE GREAT IDEA TO SAVE THESE GARMENT WHICH WS DESIGNED FOR FUNCTION HE COUPLED THIS WITH TAILOR CUTS/FABRICS SO YOU GET BUTCH LOOK WITH GENTLEMENS CUT.

THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR...URBAN PROTECTION SERIES LIQUID CRYSTAL JACKET, TRANSFORMABLES, KEVILAR, GORE-TEX AND SPORTIVA SHOES  

IF YOU DON'T FIND THIS HELPFUL...WELL I'M TRYING TO HELP...COZ I LOVE THE BRAND AND I DON'T WANT YOU GUYS TO BE STUNG BY TAT.
