Long shot, but can anyone identify this overcoat purely from a "Made in Italy" tag? It's the only label on it.  
 Fixed your post for you.
I've just finished renovating a BB Makers tie. The tie had nice Burgundy with blue spot silk ("Woven in Italy"), but the lining was thin and shot. I also had a Chester Barrie mainline tie that had a lovely weight, but was plucked to death. Both were about 50p from clearance bins in Charity Shops, so I took them apart, and relined the BB tie with the CB wool, so now have a lovely BB tie for £1. :) Anyway, reason for posting is that the BB tie has a label saying "Weighted...

Now they've doubled or trebled their retail and they're one of my fave UK charity shop finds as it's such an easy sell.
Thanks Spoo
Scored some bargain RLPL shoes: which came up lovely:     Can someone interpret sizing for me please, is this 11 US or UK?   Thanks
