Stone Island is an Italian premium men's apparel brand from Ravarino famous for its compass patch that buttons onto the upper sleeve of the left arm. It belongs to Carlo Rivetti's "Sportswear Company" (SPW).
It may be Italian in origin, but the brand, and its unmistakeable compass emblem, has been an inescapable part of UK street style for decades and is quickly finding its place in prestige clothing across the globe.
With a culture of research and innovation at its core, Stone Island leads the way for functional fashion clothing and has done so since being established in 1982. By taking inspiration from military uniforms and traditional work wear, they have been able to produce an every-growing collection where function is never left to simply be aesthetic. The brand is well renowned for their modern day classic Stone Island jackets, which were and continue to be, a seminal piece in the wardrobe of ‘casuals’ fashion as well as being a staple purchase for many other countercultures throughout the years. For high tech, functional fashion crossed with timeless design, there is no better brand than Stone Island.
