Stone Island

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
We just picked up the outerwear from Stone Island. Anyone here own any pieces from them? The feedback I have received so far has been amazing. Quality, functionality, and fashion all on point. This is the jacket I think I am going to go with.

What do yall think of the jacket and or the line itself? I love to hear feedback on new brands that we pick up.

I agree.... I have had a lot of questions like "$600 for a windbreaker???", but then I have people from Europe come in and flip out that we have it in the store and buy it up. I think it is great, and am looking forward to getting the shirts and sweaters in later on this year.

In europe it's a very popular brand. The fabric and construction is excellent. The designs are contempoary yet functional.
Here in the states there is no brand idenity so people are like WTF.
All they have to do is ask.

Sadly here in the UK Stone Island is a brand that has been faked to death after being picked up a few years ago by the football casuals and has gone much the same way as Burberry which is a shame as the quality and some of the designs are top notch

The association with football hooligans is the reason that I can't buy the brand, although I recognize that some of the stuff is really well designed and constructed. However, I really do like the "older" CP Company stuff.

It looks pretty cool but too expensive for me for the most part.

Does anyone have any experience with their recent knitwear pieces? Are they worth the price?

And what's the quality like on their diffusion line, CP Company?

The quality of CP Company is very good. Massimo Osti actually meant Stone Island to be the sportier, more technical brand, and if anything, Stone Island should be considered the diffusion line, though they are really more "sister" lines than anything else.

That's really expensive for something I've never seen/heard of before...looks solid construction wise though

I have the feeling that they would get CP Company though.

We carry Stone Island and CP Company. We have had CP for quite a while, but just started with Stone Island. Both lines are among my favorites for cool technical sportswear that fits great.

No offence but at CP Company being a diffusuion line.
Quality on CP Company is excellent though, branding is much less obvious than Stone Island so it isn't faked anywhere near as much, plus it doesn't have the same hooligan stigma. I picked up a CP Company beige down jacket for £70 from TK Maxx last year, which is really nice and the quality is great.
That said I think Stone Island is about ready to make something of a comeback in the mainstream, despite all the fakes a lot of the jackets are too complicated/technical to be faked.

It's the same in Sweden. Damn those hooligans imo.

Does the country of origin for manufacturing matter? It seems like Stone Island and CP gets made all over.
