Man I hope not. If it is I have a lot if backtracking to do tomorrow. I passed on 3 suits Tuesday with that tag.

Hmm. The fact you're seeing a lot of them your way and so am I suggests they got dumped on the GW from a large source. Which makes me think its nothing special. I swear I'd seem that tag sourced to someone good, and the construction and pattern match on the jackets I bought is good enough that I want to say its someone decent, but I can't back that up with anything.

Don't think so, mate. Modern Cantarelli is:

As far as I know, it's the only time I've seen it. They were all 3 the same size, probably from the same donor. I'd compare the construction and quality to Trussini. Not bad, but nothing over the top excellent either.

Thats fair. I didn't mean to suggest it was Isaia or anything, but definitely better than the mean in the wider world (i.e., including non-SF approved brands). On a par with Zegna mainline and Canatarelli -- basically the lower mid quartile of the stuff that normally gets people's blood pumping here on Styleforum.

Funny, just this morning I saw a Trussini shawl lapel dinner jacket (no trousers) at a consignment shop. Seemed like a decently made fully canvassed jacket. I didn't really know anything about them so I took a pic of the tag and figured I'd come over to this thread to see what the deal was. Wasn't expecting them to be recently mentioned. Here's the tag:

It is better than decent. Canali level. I found one before with tons and tons of handwork, more than I have ever seen on a piece of OTR clothing.

Bumpity Bump. Any ideas?

Hey guys, I picked up these Carroll & Company slip ons last week. They don't say "Made in England" so am I correct in assuming that these are Alden?

It's def an SFA house label jacket, I've just seen that a few of their pieces might have been made by Corneliani, and since it's a made-in-Italy piece, I thought this might be one of them, but it doesn't match any of the  Corneliani tags I've seen.

 

Thanks!

Looks to be Alden, 901 model from the serial number.

Thanks! Now I'm really bummed there were no trousers. I might have to go back and search again just in case. It was the one item in the shop that had me curious enough to snap a pic. This is a decent consignment shop, but run by women who know nothing about menswear. A fused CK suit will be priced quite high, while a fully canvassed dinner jacket sits in the bargain bin. A few months back they had several H. Freeman & Sons MTM fully canvassed suits for next to nothing, but alas not my size.

If it is for you it is an excellent pick up. I would pass, however, if you are purchasing to sell.
