Someone else told me it might be Caruso and that Caruso has many different labels. Thanks, I would love to know who makes it.

I will take the blame; I first suggested to Marc that it might be Caruso -- primarily for the same reason as noted below. I know Caruso has made some RRL stuff, and also that Caruso has used lots of different tags. Since I didn't recognize these to be among them, I suggested he post here.

@GMMcL 

I called Ralph Lauren and the lady told me that they have their stuff made by so many different companies that they cant know where individual items are made. She said that even she can't check it up. Hmmmm....

I think it's pretty standard practice in the industry not to publicize the names of your manufacturers.

Seems much more likely.

But you think they'd give them better talking points than "We have no idea who made that [and impliedly can't vouch in any way for its quality]."

And there aren't any other manufacturers tags - inside the pockets perhaps?

No, everything is in the pictures except the one near the neck that says Double RL and Made in Italy underneath.

It does actually have that extra piece turned back under the collar which I thought implied higher quality workmanship.

Does anyone know who makes this? I know it's Drakes when it says "MD", but who is it when it says "CH"? Thanks

Who tailors in Canada, and is the quality any good? Had a look around on this thread but couldn't seem to get an answer. Jacket is J Press and has tween from an Italian Mill (Lanificio di Pray).

That's not a Samuelsohn tag.

Any idea who then? It certainly doesn't look like any Samuelsohn tag I've seen before...

Sorry, I was answering the question of who tailors in Canada. I am not familiar with anyone other that Samuelsohn, but I can't confirm that the picture is a Sameulsohn tag.

I have a recent J Press blazer with that tag. Construction is rubbish. My guess is a lower tier Canadian maker, certainly not Samuelsohn.

Probably the same company that makes Lauren for RL suits.
