How about this one...of a jacket labelled "Eddy Monetti"

That's a Boglioli tag.

If we're talking about the tag below, it's definitely Cantarelli.

No sockliners left, so I have no idea who they were made for. EG or CJ?

Could be both. I believe those a veldtshoen and the nail pattern is EG, but I'm told EG subbed out their veldtshoen work to C&J because they didn't have the necessary machine to do that type of construction.

Thanks, that's actually pretty fascinating! Maybe I'll email EG and ask them...

And yes, they're veldtshoen (which I googled right after you mentioned it) - the stitching is right, and they have a bellows tongue like a lot of others do. n

They're Tricker's veldtschoen shoes on what looks like that 4497s last.

That point about EG subbing their veldt work to C&J is unconfirmed by the way, I spoke to a contact at C&J and he said it was the first he'd heard of it but that didn't mean it wasn't true...

Yep, that sizing looks bang on with trickers. Not sure about the last numbers, but the shape looks perfect for them. Sad that they aren't EG, but thanks so much for the confirmation!

Welcome, mate!

I wouldn't get too het up on the EG thing as a lot of the shoes they made from back in the day are of variable quality anyway; they made for a number of people at different retail levels and only a few of their earlier models that I've handled are of the standard that most would recognise as EG these days. Interestingly enough, my tailor regards them as something of a bunch of parvenus as he remembers them as being decidedly middle range in the '70s. His words though, and not mine.

A pair of Tricker's veldtschoen shoes like those went for about £150 on eBay recently so would be worth trying to source some sock liners for the shoes. If you have a relationship with the Shoe Healer in the UK's Doncaster then he might be able to help with that...

Tricker's haven't made veldts for well over a decade, so those would have been made when their country footwear was the first choice of most people in the know.
