The tags all look pretty legit to me, just very old. For the record, I work in a menswear store that sells lots of Pal Zileri.

As a side note, I just found out that they've fired their lead designer and replaced him with a guy who supposedly was Thom Browne's assistant. So...
Following the Ten Commandments has clearly brought joy and happiness into this man's life: Or I guess maybe not. And I love that he breaks the all-important First Commandment right on his front page: http://www.bownsbespoke.com/readytowearshoes.html
