It’s finally here; the (very) Limited Edition Stone Island Liquid Reflective Jacket is in stock, available and ready to be snapped up by fashion lovers, Stone Island fans and unique people alike. This jacket has been delivered so early even Stone Island’s official website don’t have stock of the jacket yet. Given the huge hype surrounding the jacket and its release we thought we’d let you in on every detail of the Liquid Reflective Jacket and to do this, believe me, we’ve searched every nook and cranny of this fantastic coat to find them.
The reflective jacket has been seen in many Stone Island collections before, however this one is Liquid Reflective which is a type of paint applied by a hand spraying technique onto a fabric that contains thousands of glass microspheres. This technique gives the jacket its reflective design but also the hand spraying ensures that the jacket is unique as no two paint jobs are ever the same. After the paint has been applied it is left to dry in an oven – who ever thought you could wear an oven baked jacket? The exterior of the liquid reflective jacket comprises of 47% glass fibre 27% special resins and 26% polyester.
This entire liquid and drying process gives the jacket some fantastic characteristics such as diverse colour and refraction intensities throughout the garment and especially around the armpits, collar and cuff. The material will also gradually wear in the most stressed areas such as around the zips, pockets and elbows further enhancing the uniqueness of the Stone Island coat.
The jacket has one full front zip with a grey/blue fabric zip pull and a blue distressed tape-edge that partially hides the zip. The same design is featured on the zips for the pockets, two of which are on the chest and two are more towards the hips. The zip and teeth are silver in colour with an electric blue trim. The cuffs have the same tape-edge and are adjustable by a 5cm strip of black Velcro. The collar features a double press stud fastening strap that features across the neck. The last external design feature is the fantastic fold away hood, that doubles as a raised collar. The collar effect can be created by four press stud fasteners that tuck the hood away perfectly. The collar features the signature twin piping effect that is evident on most Stone Island hooded jumpers and jackets. The hood is painted in the same fashion as the jacket and is folded out and then unzipped from the collar, just above the Stone Island label and art number. This then provides a large hood with a black fabric interior, the same as the lining of the jacket.
The jacket is lightly lined with 80% wool and 20% nylon. The interior features an inside button closing pocket that carries an embroidered signature Stone Island compass logo and an embossed black button. The process of creating a Liquid Reflective jacket is also on a patch on the inner of the jacket in both English and Italian, the country of production. The lining ensures that the jacket is warm enough for the winter months but not so thick that it can’t be worn in the autumn and spring – perfect for most of the year, especially in the UK!
The final feature of the jacket is the standard eye catching mark of Stone Island. On the left sleeve there is the signature detachable Stone Island badge, however as this jacket is limited edition the logo is entirely white on a black badge – the usual indicator of the status of a Stone Island garment. The two small black buttons holding the badge on are, as always, embossed with the logo and are the same as the button on the inside pocket.
So there you have it, with every detail explored and notated you really do now have an in depth description of this fantastic limited edition Stone Island jacket, all that remains now is for you to snap up your size from the VERY LIMITED stock and await your jacket, which will be delivered to you complete in a black branded Stone Island presentation box along with a branded coat hanger.

So don’t forget this Stone Island jacket is limited edition and is perfect for the unique person who wants that little something extra that will give his wardrobe the once in a lifetime piece that will either start or finish their perfect designer menswear collection.
