Thanks.

 

Woodhouse also has AW season items on their site.

Just came across them last night. My first foray into Stone Island after reading up about it and I'm excited for mine to come.

Which item did you get ?

post #64 of 101

I'm debating between http://www.stoneisland.com/us/stone-island/men/mid-length-jacket_cod41458102tc.html and http://www.stush-clothing.com/stone-island-ice-jacket-j.html granted they're like the previous years' model. 

 

I bought a jacket from the main site at the moment so I can see how the medium fits, then go from there since I found the yellow in Large and the gray in a medium and they're gonnabe coming from Europe so wanna get it right. Wish some retailers near DC carry them but no go. 

 

How was your experience with SI?

post #65 of 101

  I have had a good few S.I. and C.P. Company pieces over the years, of varying degrees of amazingness.  It seems like a lot of the product that they put out can seem unjustifiably expensive, but sometimes they just hit it out of the park and some of them are just "lifetime" items like a Barbour Bedale/Beaufort or a nice covert coat--- stuff you'll never get rid of or at least pass it on to your son.  

  I still have an early '90s black Raso Gommato mac by S.I. with the silver lining intact, green edged compass badge, etc... It's so warm that I can only wear it on the coldest, wettest days, can't find a link to a pic.  Also have that 20th anniversary C.P. Company gore-tex Tinto Terra Mille Miglia http://www.theblogpaper.co.uk/article/fashion/06jan10/iconic-cp-company-jacket an absolute belter of a jacket, which comes with attachable gore-tex gloves, zip-down flaps to cover your lap when racing in the Mille Miglia race, and made in limited quantities.  It's more ergonomic than their usual Mille's and made for actual use.  It's one of the most ridiculous coats I've ever owned... Although I have two navy vintage C.P. Mille Miglias(from the mid- and late '90s) , one with a sand/tan inner, one with a black), which I typically wear these days without the zip off hoods(seeing as everybody even here in America is a "casual" or "ultra" and wearing the hood is as goofy as wearing a Stone Island badge on your jacket or a sticker on your flat-brimmed cap[hahah])... plus I don't like wearing hoods unless I really, really need one.  These two jackets are more go-to and more versatile than the above monstrous bulletproof counterparts.  

 

  I guess the best advice I can give is to try on their stuff before you buy it, because as somebody indicated above, their sizing is all over the place.  I'm normally a Medium in regular men's clothing, but for some S.I. and CP, I've been XXL and up sometimes!

Holy shit, your post really got me more excited about S.I. I would looove to see your collection if i ever end up in the same zip code as you. 

 

Alas, it looks like I'll have to trek up to NYC to try one out or get one online then return lol.. The seller I'm chatting with is in the UK so it'll be a pain to ship it back and stuff, but i might get a Large to give it a go..

 

Mannn, that Raso Gommato you have sounds niiiiice. Care to take pics of it? That sounds like what I need. I have low tolerance for the wind/cold..

Well this is the Stoney, and it looks like the outer could use a sponge bath, haha, though a lot of the spots are from the flash and it seems to be garment-dyed as well, (pre-Tinto Terra?)...    It might actually be from the late '80s, but I seem to remember it being from the early '90s.  I can't seem to find an article lookup page to type in the number, but it's an old 'un.  You NEVER see old school Raso Gommatos with the foil still totally intact.  It's pre-hologram on the label,but it has the "dutch rope" liner and the cell phone pocket within it.  Seems to be pre-Lampo zip, too, as it has a YKK which is original to the jacket.  

  First pic is the velcro'ed throat placket, and there is a metal hook and eye thing to keep the collar tightly shut if you wish to do that.  Big metal buttons, and the pockets actually snap shut.

Thanks @Botolph !!! Appreciate the pics, what is the inside like? I am still stunned that this keeps you really warm, that is some excellent craftsmanship. 

post #69 of 101

Right here's the "dutch rope" removable liner.  It ropes in and snaps in at the sleeve cuffs(it's a full liner).  Very standard for Stone Island winter stuff from at least the lat '80s.  It's a poly/nylon fill, but between that and the fact that the reflective liner keeps warmth in, this is one toasty bastard.  I live in Boston and with a scarf and a hat, -5 degrees is bearable, haha.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now this is the 2010 antique reflective field jacket.  Pardon 1.the dirty mirror and 2.me being a total douche showing off my rare stuff.  Notice the wool felt inner.  A monster, robust-as-fooooook coat.  White compass badge cos it was a flagship piece and made in pretty limited quantities.

Mannn, never would have thought that but THAT's what i need. Fount this one http://needsupply.com/mens/clothing/outerwear/jackets/field-jacket-in-muschio.html and never would have though it had that silver lining, had you not mentioned it and showed it. 

 

The reflective one is siiiiick! The closest one I found so far is this http://www.designerwear2u.co.uk/jackets-c2/stone-island-blue-reflex-mat-jacket-p2388 and now I'm sold with going with this. 

post #71 of 101

Nice. Still have my and wear occasionally  my Raso-R w/liner (not a fan of the "Dutch Rope") find it cumbersome.

 

Fan of CP also. Always found them too run small, typical Italian sizing.

 

Thanks for posting the pics

 

Enjoy

Cripes, pricey!  Yeah I didn't know that Stone Island still did the metallic inner Raso's.  That one looks pretty nice, albeit a little short.  The Reflex looks pretty sick, too.  Nice finds-- and defo look at a size chart or contact them about the size--- stuff's bizarro-world when it comes to sizing and fit consistency.  '80s it was huge and boxy(I could wear a S or M), and '90s was semi-normal, then 2000s it's been everywhere and in-between.

Yeah it is a tad.. I had my eyes set on Moncler or a new canadian brand Nobis, but I think SI would be a good first foray to the classics. I srsly have been buying one jacket a year since 2003 haha, my friends and family laugh but heh, can't help it. I've been doing research the past two weeks, you should have seen how many tabs I had open everyday. 

 

The reflex mat I found for $623 which makes me feel better compared to shelling out $1500. But I'll keep an eye on this if the price goes down after you mentioned how warm it keeps you. It doesn't really get cold in DC like in Boston haha, but still :D

Clone Island was the brand to have late 89 to 95. Not worth a shit these days

Well yeah overseas it is associated with casual "identikit" but here in the US it doesn't have the stigma attached to it(unless maybe you follow MLS and play make-believe dress up casuals or ultras). It's still relatively fresh here. Most of their stuff these days *is* cheap tat, but some things they do are still great. You need to pick the corn out of the sh*t😄
Aside from the Antiqued Reflective above(2010) I hadn't bought any SI for about 10 years till this past summer. Little shop selling SI for 50% markdown in Zurich, picked up a dark blue S.I. mac for about €160. It'd have been rude not to!
