Quote: I'm not sure, as mine is different.  However, based upon the Saint Andrews Fabric label, I would be inclined to treat them the same.  If  understand correctly, Zaffagni did run (own) Saint Andrews, before they were taken over.  If I were pressed, I would suggest that you've got an early Saint Andrews (Andrea) forerunner.  The quality should be just as good (possibly better) than current ones.   All of my items (4 suits and 1 SC) have labels similar to the one below...
I would suggest the same.
Do you have a picure of the tag, as I've still got 5 Zaffagni items, so I could compare it with what i've got?   Cheers
    Compare the two pictures that I've just "borrowed" from the eBay links and then compare to the label that you have.  You should see that Grendel is correct.   1. Canali     2. Corneliani       In addition, Corneliani tends to have the model written in English (at least of the one's I've seen) and both the Canali and Corneliani have different typefaces (fonts).   Still, Canali's not a maker to laughed at.   I really hope that this helps?   Clint
  I often get confused between them myself.   I've just done a search on eBay.   1. Canali label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Canali-46R-56EU-Pure-Wool-Black-2-button-Tailored-sportcoat-/180793582146?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item2a18232242 2. Corneliani label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Corneliani-Couture-1-Button-Tuxedo-Jacket-44R-NEW-1595-/360424642486?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item53eafb97b6 3. PRL label -...
Sorry to be a pain, but what you're looking at is a Canali label, not a Corneliani.   For rerference:   http://www.styleforum.net/t/278605/is-anyone-aware-of-a-suit-tag-database-or-guide-to-deciphering-them/0_40   Clint
+1, I've not purchased from him in a few years, but I have always meant to have another pair commissioned.   I hope all is well with him and that there is an adequate explanation for the issue mentioned above.
.  True indeed.  He's probably younger than I am, but some people may consider anyone over 30 to be "old", hence my comment.   Thanks for the heads up about the website.  
If it's Cliff, he's not THAT old!!  
I agree, they just look like nice cufflinks to me.  If they are a gift and you can tolerate them, then why not wear them?
