HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 89

Hey - I think this is a Caruso tag. Any thoughts?

I've never seen an English maker use a marking for a combination last (D/B). Also,, if they're Cheaney, they'll have "Made In Leather Insole England" stamped on the insole.

Hmm.  English stamp not present.  Back to the drawing board.  Thanks!

"Designed by Edward Green for Paul Stuart", and made in USA ...
Does anyone know who made these?

While I'm at it, does this look like a real Polo by Ralph Lauren label? I ask because the labels I've seen online seem to all have "Ralph Lauren" in lowercase letters, unlike this. I'm curious how old this blazer is and who made it, since it's fully canvassed and has nice hand stitching, but was presumably made in America, judging by the union label. Anyone know?

Definitely real, from between 1968 (when Polo was founded) and 1975 (when the union label design changed). I don't think I've ever seen an answer on here re: who made the US Polo stuff. I imagine there was a much bigger pool of US makers back then, and it may not be from a name we'd even recognize.

By the way, it's hard to tell for sure from the fit pic you posted in the thrift thread, but I don't think it fits you very well.

Not sure about those Paul Stuarts, though I'm curious to find out.

Wonderful! Thanks for the quick response.

Those were most likely made in the late 60's to 70's when RL had his own factories pumping these out before PRL were contracted to Corn. This was confirmed by a who made what RL thread. I'm sure you can find that thread by searching it. I don't have the link on hand atm.

Barrel is right, so far as I've ever read. PRL made their own stuff inhouse for most of their early history, up until the mid/late 1990s. I'm pretty sure I've seen the all caps label before; in fact I think I thrifted the exact same blazer a few weeks back (but I can't find it to confirm)
I had that thread bookmarked in Mozilla. Then my stupid company made me stupidly stupid upgrade to stupid Windows 7 and I stupid lost my stupid bookmarks. Stupid. (Full disclosure: They're buried somewhere in the backup I did and I just can't be bothered figuring out how to restore them. I'M A GODDAMN LAWYER FOR CHRISSAKES! WHO THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO ENTRUST ME WITH IT WORK??

I try and do a full search of the thread before posting, but couldn't seem to find this one, though it looks familiar. Maybe I just missed it:

Can anyone help me out with the size on these. I think they are 6.5 or 7's from how they fit me (I wear a 7 or 7.5 and they are a tad too small) and the number  "465" would be a 6.5 from the research I have done. Can anyone confirm? Not sure what the width would be though.

This screams Brioni to me. Anyone disagree?

And anyone know who made this? 'Burberrys' licensed USA, not HF.
