So this is a Ralph Lauren Purple Label shoe, made in England, cursive script... all of which I thought would be EG or GG, but it doesn't appear that it's made by either. Any ideas?

I think that this shoe was made by C&J and the sock liner piece had the cursive maybe during the period where they weren't solid on which firm they would use for the PL shoes and what the criteria was.

It's C&J. Also, it's Polo not RLPL.

Found a pair of Jodhpur boots today. They are English made, but have been resoled recently, so I can't make out who made them the the sole. All it says is "Last 1978" and "Shoe No. R9843T". Any ideas who made them? The quality is exceptional.

Cheaney, the only English shoemaker that has both "last" and "shoe no." in the inner markings.

Anyone know this coat label?  and if it matters, it's wool, polyammide, cashmere, viscose, respectively.

Found this tag in a sport coat for Carroll & Co. (high end mens store in LA)  Is this just a store tag? Or can someone ID the maker?

And Loake, or older models at least. Not sure if they qualify as an "English shoemaker" these days, though...

 

An example here.

facepalm.gif Obviously! How can you have a 42 with a 24" = 48" chest. Not sure how my math got messed up on that one. Good catch. Thanks! Any luck with what the 27 means?

It is just a different sizing method, sometimes used in Europe. The 27 means it's a short. Suit Supply uses the same method if I am not mistaken.
