Liquid Reflective is a symbol of Stone Island’s research and experimentation as they’re devoted to giving consumers cutting edge garments. Composed of thousands of glass microspheres, it is highly reflective and reacts strongly to light when it comes into contact with even the weakest light sources. The Liquid treatment is applied by means of hand spraying color onto each individual finished garment which then generates an uneven liquid effect. The piece is then baked dry using a similar technology to the one used for car bodywork. Buy here

I read about these sweats a while ago in an American magazine but completely forgot all about them, who stated that these are the ‘best made in America sweatshirts’ ! Its all about the quality and fit for American Giant, a small company from San Francisco. The brand only sells long-lasting basic sweatshirt styles, all handmade in America. American Giant doesn’t have stand alone stores and spends nothing on marketing, focusing instead on old-fashioned excellence. (Unlike a certain hipster favourite of coloured basics who have a store on every corner of London whos prices take the piss btw) The result is a garment that will last. For us in the UK and Europe just contact them first for postage and hey presto a sweat for life!
