Stone Island Crinkle Reps Technical Fabric

What To Know About Stone Island Crinkle Reps Fabric

Stone Island has been an inescapable part of UK street style for decades. The Italian label was first established in 1982, in the Modena era, by the creative genius Massimo Osti and within a year, Carlo Rivetti came onto the scene. Perhaps the most important element of a Stone Island jacket is the removable badge, normally found on the left side of the garment. Different variations of the badge appear on different products and they denote different aspects of the brand. Most commonly, there is the standard badge, decorated in a yellow and green compass rose design and remains unchanged since the brand’s debut.

Crinkle Reps Fabric Composition:

One of Stone Islands’ cutting-edge, tech-driven fabrics includes Crinkle Reps. Named after its appearance, Stone Island Crinkle Reps jackets are crafted from lightweight nylon reps with an ultra-tight weaving construction that is garment-dyed. A resin coating is applied to the inside, offering wind and mild water resistance. Due to uneven penetration, the color bursts evenly across the material, giving a crinkly effect while also giving the surface a blurred, marbled appearance. This makes each garment unique, having every piece individually designed. Further color hues are brought out of the Crinkle Reps fabric thanks to a special agent that makes the garment anti-drop. Typically, the Crinkle Reps fabric is injected with the finest feathers which assist in making the garment dying easier.

LAB is the constant investigation into the transformation and enhancement of fibers and fabrics, and it is from here where many Stone Island projects are born. Whether its features such as water-resistant technology or garments that change color with the temperature, Stone island has created some of the best materials and techniques there is in fashion, and the Crinkle Rep fabric is no exception.

An Ode To The Stone Island Overshirt

A constant resident of the upper echelons of really nice clothes, a Stone Island overshirt is for many some of the most highly regarded pieces of clobber one can get their hands on. Lauded for their countless array of stellar talking points, mind-boggling visuals and sharp cuts, they provide the trans-seasonal keys to casual wardrobe elevation. But, before we dive straight into the compliments it’s worth taking a look back at where exactly this half-shirt half-jacket hybrid originated.

 

Stone Island Overshirt

 

Timeless, smart but tough enough to handle the rigors of a hard days graft, the overshirt was originally designed as a layering piece to go over the top of suits and ties. Famed for its plethora of handy pockets and uncomplicated design the ‘shackets’ were often constructed using more robust materials such as sturdy cotton twill and moleskin.

Becoming the go-to garment for easygoing functionality the overshirt quickly found itself on the backs of everyone from tradesmen and French Railway workers to British soldiers during the Second World War. More recently the garments have made somewhat of a resurgence in the modern man’s everyday wardrobe, slotting seamlessly into contemporary trends such as Scandinavian minimalism and workwear-inspired tailoring.

 

Stone Island Overshirts

Well, not only do we just love talking about everyone’s favourite Italian sportswear company, but when it comes to totally unique overshirts they certainly know a thing or two. Utilising their penchant for unique fabric blends, the brand continues to put out overshirts in just about every shape and size imaginable, including, but not limited to, Crinkle Reps NY, nylon metal, naslan light, cotton garbadine, brushed cotton twill, tella stella… we think you get the idea.

 

Stone Island Jackets

 

Not only do these ingenious pairings provide a super functional outer shell to give you that little bit extra protection, but they provide a perfect base for Stone Island’s garment-dyeing wizardry and bespoke treatments to shine. With shades spanning everything from soft blush pink to punchy neons, iridescent, reflective and thermal reactive coatings deliver eye-catching notes whilst the brand’s OLD effect and in-house mixed dyed, give that classic worn-in look everyone can’t get enough of.

With enough pocket variations and smart detailing to please even the most function-obsessed compass patch fan out there, get your hands on a Stone Island Overshirt of your own before it’s too late.
