HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 189

post #2821 of 3231

So I was at my favorite thrift shop and found a wool Burberry Coat that actually fits me. Now I'm curious as to how old it is. From what I've researched I'm guessing the 1950s but someone here may know better. 

Here are some photos.

 

The label was very rubbed and can be seen more clearly from the back. 

 

The store on the label evidently closed in 1955 (As this WaPo article indicateshttps://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/business/1980/10/29/saltz-sells-georgetown-shops/a5388199-d31d-467d-9e96-8efbbf392f83/)

 

There are no buttons on the cuffs but you can button the rear bottom split. (sorry I don't know what that's called.) And when it's buttoned you can't see the buttons themselves.  Anyone know when this would have been made. Or anything else about it. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

 

Does anyone know what brand this belt is? It has an "H" logo stamped on the back. Please see photo.

 

Thanks.

Hey guys, trying to figure out the maker on these Atlantic Works x Beams strap boots. I'm thinking either Rancourt or Yuketen. Anyone know for sure? Thanks in advance!

Any further information on these finds would be great. "Blue Diamond" I believe may be of significant value as Vicuna Blazers are $20,000 and the Vicuna comes before the Mink Cashmere, the coat is extremely light and nearly floats off the body, beautiful dark blue that plays with the light. Can you find me another coat of this quality utilizing similar fabric? [IMG]

I have not been able to find any information on this label. The coat is very well made and reminds me of something really rich tech guys wear. [IMG]

@Crazycarl87 , I moved your post over here where you should get much more feedback.  The thrift thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/9006/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread is also a good source.  The guys in there know their stuff.

@Crazycarl87 Given that "George Taylor" / "Blue Diamond" is not an established cloth brand and there are no percentages for the vicuna content, your jackets probably don't hold much value. They certainly don't hold the same value as a garment made from 100% vicuna or a blend from Loro Piana.

 

Garments tailored in Hong Kong, with the possible exception of WW Chan, also don't tend to do very well on the secondary market. If you're still looking for more information, try emailing the tailors at info@cctailor.com.

 

As for the "libxldide" jacket, it might help us if we could see any of the tags. You'll likely find one in one of the interior breast pockets.
