Stone Island is/was one of my favorite brands until Mr. Paul Harvey left (S/S 2008), and the brand became more commercial and mainstream. From the last seasons I bought only a few knits, but wouldn't even go near the most of the items now. Sizing and quality is all over the place last few years, but it seems that this is slowly being put back in order. Having said that, the pricing has increased 30% to 50% so I have to say that 'older' fans are slowly moving on... Brand however has better commercial success now.
Went to a Stone Island store and I bought a jacket and cargo pants FW 2012 and really love them-- but got them at 30% off. Quality and construction is very good, but it's overpriced. I think 30% off as a starting point is "fair" if you're in love with jacket.
for their SS 13, I slipped on a lightweight down vest and peeked at the tag: over $700. For that price they better plate me some foie gras next to the register.
I might be a little late to this thread but what the hell, here goes.
I bought a Stone Island Reflex Mat Field Jacket a couple of months ago. The jacket cost me £750 from a shop in Scotland called Van Mildert, i paid full RRP because it's new season (AW 13).
In the couple of months I've owned it I've had more compliments than any other item of clothing I've ever owned in my life. Random people have stopped me and asked me about it, people serving me at check outs have commented on it. Gets a lot of looks when you're wearing it.
The quality of it is exceptional, unlike anything I've owned before, someone took a lot of care when they made this. Fabrics feel fantastic, the jacket is lined with a nice warm fleece, if anything it can be too warm at times, even on a cold rainy day in Scotland I can still be too warm wearing it. Usually I'll just wear a polo shirt under it.
My jacket is at 28 seconds.
I'm going to wait for the January sales and hopefully get the red camo jacket at the very start of the video :)
