HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 197

post #2941 of 3231
Would greatly appreciate help ID'ing the maker of these PRL shoes - checked first post and appears heels may have been replaced? Not entirely sure. Thanks in advance!

Yes yes, I know that. There are also Marbo tags right on the jacket. I assumed someone did the tailored for Mabro  as I didnt know if they tailored their own items. :D

Yes, they do their own stuff, as well as make for quite a few others.

And they make some GORGEOUS stuff, too—for other licensors. There's a VERY exclusive mens shop here out on Long Island—Victor Talbot's that they make some HEAVENLY formal gear for. I have a tux by Mabro for Talbot's and it is exquisite. Mabro is no joke.

 i heard LV is made by Mabro, but i have no personal experience for both.

 

and i always see Mabro on yoox and ebay, but seems not popular.

 

so,the quality of Mabro is equal to caruso maneline or belvest?

Yes, Mabro is very under appreciated. And under performs at resale. If you find it, keep it. YMMV.

Is this Edward Green? Does anyone else use the 202 last? The number convention is the same as a few pairs I had recently, but the handwriting seems a tad different. They're also for a brand you would NEVER expect Green to make for.

LV is actually made by Belvest not Mabro. And co-sign with eveyone, Mabro makes excellent quality garments that is for sure and they definitely do not get the appreciation they deserve on the secondary market. Quality grade differs with Belvest depending on who they are making for or if it's for themselves but yes I would say Mabro is on par with Caruso Mainline quality wise. Caruso may have a little more handwork I believe, but overall I would definitely put them in the same tier. And lastly, Scabal is actually a fabric manufacturer, one of the finest in the world. Their Diamond Chip fabric or their Platinum fabrics can run upwards of over 8 grand per square meter or roughly yard, and it takes 3.75 sq yards to make a standard 2 piece suit so you can do the math there. My mother's client actually had a bespoke suit made with the Diamond Chip and it cost 22 grand total. However they do not make any RTW garments nor do they do any bespoke tailoring. And Mabro doesn't produce their own fabrics although their fabric selection, in my experience, is top notch.

Yes, they are Edward Green. Judging by the 4-digit production number, they are of late 80s vintage.

Presumably the brand is Cole Haan. EG did work for them around that time. I have a pair from the same period (production number 3955) which were marked with "Cole Haan made by Edward Green".

Anyone familiar with White Brothers? Northampton, England. Are they still around?

No, although that would have been just as surprising. It's Nordstrom.

Double row of nails should mean Alfred Sargent, but that padded heel screams C&J. I'm the worst at sidewall script so that's no help to me. Any help?

Assuming they are AS, anyone able to tell whether they're mainline or the higher end?
