At the bottom of the tee where its sown together if you pull on it, it rips instantly. I paid 70 quid how can the quality be so bad? Never again would i waste my money on stone island

    Hi Luke the daddy,

    what made you purchase Stone Island clothing in the first place? Is it a brand you consider synonymous with good quality?

    Stone Island used to be excellent quality up until a few years ago, all their products were made in Italy to very high standards and it was somewhat of a niche brand. They lost their main designer in the late 2000s and it started becoming a mainstream brand in the UK - and a bit of a chav icon. Since then they've started outsourcing production to Singapore and various other places, and the designs and clothing quality is getting worse and worse. Not to mention the market is saturated with fakes.

    I've still got a few classic Stone Island jackets in my wardrobe but as the Osti brands go its lagging a very sorry third behind CP Company and even Ma.Strum at this point.
