Badged Barney's New York Made in England. Trickers? C&J?

Had that exact same pattern and inscription on a pair made for Britches of Georgetown last year. Turned out to me most likely Grenson.

Thanks! The printed info is identical in form, except for the word Grenson. Looks like a match to me.

I posted these in the thrift thread, but I still haven't been able to find anything about this brand. Chukka... Yeah, googling that name doesn't work at all.

C&J's right? Brooks English, so 1960s I believe... am I wrong?

^^Those are Church's.

Really? The writing didn't look right for them, and I never knew that they had made shoes for BB... I'm assuming they're pre-prada? What's the build quality like on them then?

Any idea? Brooks Bros made in the USA. Doesn't look like alden to me.
AppleMark
AppleMark

EDIT: I think it's alden. Due to the three nails in the top center of the heel. The stamp in the footbed must have worn off.

Does anyone know what the "Stuntman A Bond 4 "F"" refers to on the Brioni Jacket tag?

Varies. I've had two pairs of NOS Church's for Brooks. One pair similar to today's run-of-the-mill Church's Custom Grade (i.e. fine, on a par with C&J benchgrade IMO); the other pair, just absolutely fantastic.

And yes, they will be pre-Prada. Not really a watershed, quality-wise.

I assume it is a MTM Jacket for a stuntman, maybe for a bond movie? That is normally the area where Brioni puts a name on a MTM garment.

I recently picked up these Polo penny loafers at a thrift shop and I couldn't find any markings indicating the country of manufacture. Maybe somebody could shed some light on it?  

The only readable markings on the inside are the size (91/2 D) and a number M5169.

There is a very faint Polo label on the sole, but no other writing that I can read, the soles are pretty worn.

I wouldn't have thought much of these when I saw them if not for the nail pattern on the bottom, I was hoping somebody might have some ideas,  Thanks!

Thanks. That's what I was hoping, but I didn't want to look like a fool presuming it. It was found in Hollywood, so it makes sense. I think this is the jacket that the stuntman is matching:
