HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 2

post #16 of 2181
Looks like I uploaded a bunch of 0 length files for the Belgrave. Since I deleted them from my camera, I'll have to retake and repost.

There's some debate about whether CJ Polo are handgrade or benchgrade. There are decent arguments for both sides. That said, the shoes themselves state that they are "Bench Made in England", but I'm not sure if that answers your question. For example, while being bench made, they obviously have the channeled soles of the CJ (mainline) handgrades. So.. like I said, its debatable.

If anyone has pics of jacket labels (e.g. RLPL made by Chester Barrie, RL Black Label, Castangia, Oxxford, etc...), shirt labels (different types/grades of Borrelli, Barba, Finamore, etc...), please post here or PM me scans or links and I will add to the OP. Thanks!

Yes, great thread. Thanks gdl. I know the top of the page is already crowded but this should probably be a sticky too.

Not a bad idea - maybe we could move the SF club tie sticky to the B&S forum to make some room?

Thanks odoreater - i added these.

I wonder if anyone has scans of H. Freeman tags? They seem to manufacture for so many brands that it would be really helpful to know what their label looks like and be able to identify their products

And this is the first page of the booklet you are given when you purchase a Borrelli suit - it's signed by the tailors responsible for your piece.

Could someone post examples of the Peal Brooks Brothers heels? I believe this is one of the main culprits . . .it would be nice to know which are C&J and which are AS . . . although based on the Polo heel pics, the Peals with one row of nails are probably also C&J.
