HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 208

post #3106 of 3236

Any help on these made in Italy shortwings for Neiman Marcus? Something about them seem really familiar but I can't tell if it's familiar because the markings and heels are mostly non-descript.

Need some assistance. Bought these alleged Edward Greens off eBay. There are no nail patterns although the heel may have been replaced, the insole looks wonky (heel pad looks like it was taken out of legit EGs and sloppily glued down into these), and the size markings are printed instead of hand written. Fugazi?

You've been had. The listing language gives a hint that he knew what was up: 

 

I'm unfamiliar with vintage Edward Green shoes so when I bought these I wasn't sure what I was getting. I'm still not 100% sure. They are tagged a 8.5D, built on channeled outsole with edward green heel pads. Please look at all photos and compare measurements to your shoes. No returns.

 

He puts this in there to try and cover his ass. Either he did it himself or got duped, as well.  He sells hardly anything but high end shoes, including EG.

These shoes are likely of Italian origin and are not made by Edward Green. The giveaway is that these shoes are blake stitched, and are not welted. Historically, Edward Green has never made non-welted footwear for their house made shoes (and for any nit pickers out there I mean shoes were the welt is structurally connected to the innersole, where there are some "welted" blake/rapid constructed footwear out of the Rider Boot Co label), however there are some funky older EG labelled shoes from the older Paul Stuart lines that are not goodyear welted. If you provide me with additional photos I could tell you more precisely how these shoes are constructed. I can tell you for certain that the heelpad is a correct vintage EG heelpad that came from a house goodyear welted pair, that heel pad is not correct to the shoes.

Thank you for the detailed lesson.

This is from the inside of a lovely navy pinstriped suit that had no markings other than this tag and a "Made in Italy" loop at the collar. I've been collecting pictures of labels, but this isn't in my collection. Any ideas?

Gents: This is from a Faconnable jacket. Which is usually Cantarelli. Is this a newer Canta label I haven't seen? Or is it someone else?

Thx in advance.
