Cheers all

I have a Zanella-tagged jacket with this label style. An older post in this thread speculated that it was either an older Isaia or older Lubiam. Does anyone have any more info (I've seen this label style posted several times in the thread, no conclusive answers)? If it is indeed an Isaia or Lubiam, can anyone specify which?

I'd say so, from the 60s or 70s before they changed hands and upped their game to aim for the foreign market in the 80s. The '508' would most likely be the model designation, if they are indeed EG, as they didn't start using names for their shoes until relatively recently.

 

The hand is very similar to the one used in these tramping brogues, which can be found in the EG catalogue for 1965-66:

(With thanks for EG for the catalogue image, which they provided in response to a question about the tramping shoes and also the veldtschoen boots in the top half of the image)

Picked up these Made in England on the "Virginia" last cap toe oxfords today at a thrift, any ideas on the maker?

 

9 nails on the inside portion of the heel, 12 smaller nails on the outside and a "triangle" near the edge:

No other markings remain on the shoe - any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

What about these lovely little boogers ? Anyone have any idea what they are besides Alligator loafers? One insole tag missing one is half ripped but the last word says "illusion" then under it says Alligator Leather. There is no nail pattern on the soles and full leather with leather heels and rubber pad. The leather out-soles are stamped "38" and there are no visable markings on the inside of the shoes? The quality and craftsmanship looks excellent to me and I did find a black pair very similar on ebay but that's it. The ebay ones say they are sweet illusion brand but that turned up nothing. Any confirm or add any insight to this?

Thanks

Gentlemen,

I happened across a pair of near new Vintage 5 nail Imperial Florsheim's (big deal I know)

What is interesting is that they are numbered #37 / 200 by hand on the heel bed of the insole, and stamped the same thing on the side wall. The only other stamped printed or markings otherwise say W. C. Green then again in both shoes in hand writing on the heel bed of the insoles is written:

AH

408

122A

37/200

all in hand written in ink. No other stamped or printed markings any where......?

 

WTF are these, I can't find any info on my own and thought someone here with expertise might be able to lend some insight?

Thanks and they are random narrow size, I am assuming 12 AA as is written 122A?

Have this sole tag on a black wool sweater, Made in Italy. Looks vaguely familiar, but can't quite place it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, NORE. May I ask, what makes you say so? From my (limited) understanding, I thought that the rubber portion on the heel on Cheaneys went straight across.

Church's/Cheaney does that sole decoration and also used dovetailed heel rubber inserts. But Church's model info would be hand-written on the inside and [usually] have a G/F for the width.

If you have a pic of the entire sole someone may be able to confirm. I could be wrong.
