Thanks! That looks right.

One more ID needed. Ties. Well made. "Imported Silk. Made in USA" and this illegible script tag.

C&J? I don't think I've ever seen the polo player on the waist before.

Funny - my brother just found a very similar pair. The only difference are the ones he found have two small nails at the internal edge of the heel.

I was guessing either C&J or Grenson based on perusing this thread:

Anyone have any thoughts?

Just some thought: there are 2 companies that use the 3 nails near the rubber pad - C&J and Cheaney. Cheaney often uses wheelings on their soles, but I don't see any on these 2 pairs. So it's possible that they're C&J. Any interior lining pictures?

Thanks for your thoughts.
I'm going to go with C&J since they lack the "made in leather insoles England" that you invariably find on Cheaneys.

Wow. Those must be ancient. I would say C&J but what do I know about vintage RL made in England shoes? confused.gif

If they weren't stitched aloft I would say EG based on the curve on the outside of the sole.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? It's difficult to read, I know...

If it helps, here's a text reading of what I can make out:
Modello Agnone/A
Taglia 52
Composizione Tessuto
80% Lana 20% Seta
???? 100% Cupro Bemberg

Legge 88??? 26/11/73 Made in Italy
(more numbers)

And here's big pics of all the labels on the suit... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm pretty sure they are not C&J. I confirmed it once, but I can't remember. They are a lower tier maker, Grenson, Cheaney or Tricker, but I can't remember exactly. The shoes not branded from RL have a similar picture on the sole. I believe it is a lion holding a shield on the non-RL branded shoes.

Any idea on the maker? I thought Church's made their own shoes.

My Polo shoes made in England with the shield were EG, remember teh epic Falkirks I got for $10?

Any luck with this label of who actually produced the suit for Donna Karan? It appears a lot nice then the other suits I have seen from them and has a ton of handwork. Looked back on the main page and 99% sure this is St. Andrews!?!? bounce2.gif

Long shot here but I have a 100% wool tie, made in Italy, but no label. Only clues are the symbol on the silk lining and the script on the content tag (says "Made in Italy" on underside of tag).

Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I would suggest the same.

Was wondering if someone could help  my identify this label. Thanks!
