HOF: Labels, heels and nail patterns - Secrets to ID the maker - Page 218

post #3256 of 3261

I found a RTW suit made from Loro Piana Four Seasons fabric. But there is no brand label in the suit. Only the fabric label and this nondescript maker's tag, which I do not recognise. 

Any help here?

So... I've found info for other fabric abbreviations, but where can I find the translation for this Brioni sport coat's fabric content?



EDIT: never mind. I'm an idiot.

Hi

 

I seem to remember this techique of nailing in the ruts of the heel on a Commando-type sole was specific to a maker, but can't find it now, can someone assist?

 

 

Thanks, Edward

I think those are Crockett & Jones, but do wait for more opinions... 

 

Loake is also making for the Peal label and usually the sub $500 shoes are in fact loake. Loake's heel is different than this but for BB, they can specify what they want.

Good possibility EG, they had an old 69 Last that I think they have retired.

Any idea who this could be?  It's a Pierre Balmain suit in a Loro Piana fabric.
