Here at The Hoxton Trend, we love Stone Island, and we know you do too. So many of you want to know how to spot a fake Stone Island as you may have been buying off eBay, or Depop and you want to know if you’ve got the real thing. Here’s how to spot a fake:
The fastest and easiest way to recognise a fake badge is by flipping it over and looking at the buttonholes. If the stitching around the buttonholes is perfectly straight, then it’s a fake. The genuine badges have a bended shape around the buttonhole and that’s down to the sewing machine that is used.
Another key indicator that you have a fake is if the badge feels thick and coarse. A fake is only slightly thicker and heavier than the real badge, but a feel of the quality is a sure sign if you have a fake or genuine Stone Island badge.
Take note of the circle of the logo on the badge. If the circle is bent and not a perfect shape, then it is a fake badge. Inside the circle, be sure to take a look at the lettering. If it is squashed, or hard to read it is most likely a fake.
