Labels can be seen in this ebay listing
Also, I'm pretty sure that Kosher only refers to food and that fabrics are non-shatnez

When AngelicBoris went to Martin Greenfield for his wedding suit a few years back and told him no linen in the collar,etc. because he was Orthodox, Mr. Greenfield scrawled Kosher on the ticket. happy.gif

Any ideas on this heel pattern from a Bench Made in England for Lord & Taylor:

Does it say "MADE IN LEATHER INSOLE ENGLAND" on the insole?

They are triangles, but I have seen both lines and triangles from Cheaney.

No, that 'giveaway' stamp is missing.

 

Does the white script and insole color suggest something ? I have seen similar script and style/size representation from Grenson but never those soles.

I was thinking in the other direction. Does anyone but Cheaney use their particular style of solid triangles? Admittedly I have limited exposure, but I haven't come across anyone else that does.

I don't know if you saw this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker/510#post_5071670

I have three labels I can't figure out.  Any ideas?

 

First is on a Salvatore Ferragamo SC

 

700

 

Second is on a Donna Karen Sartoriale SC.  I realize DKNY stuff is usually nothing notable, but the jacket is fully canvassed and appears to be great quality.

 

700

 

Last is on a Luciano Barbera mainline SC (not sartoriale)

 

700

About to pull the trigger on these, CJ, or Cheaney?

As are these, no? Branded for the pre-Church's Alan McAfee label, heels replaced so just going by inner markings:

Take this for what it's worth, but most C&Js I have seen have handwritten writing on the interior. This is mostly with recent C&Js, but as you can see from the above, the Polo shoes also have handwritten markings.

Cheers for that, however these shoes are of some age and, even now, most standard C&J models still have printed markings inside - with the obvious exceptions of most (if not all) handgrade models, and some boots (my Skye and Snowdon, for example)...

I think those are Cheaney. Does the footbed say "Made in Leather Sole England?"

Nope, they have Alan McAfee-branded sock liners partially covering what looks like the size above what is presumably the width in numerical form, in this case 11½ over 3.

 

The soles don't 'look' Cheaney, either. They have a stamp that I've only seen on other C&J-made McAfee models, but with different inner markings and a less common sock liner:

The only shoes I've seen with a similar picture stamped on the sole are Grensons.

However, C&J do use the size/width stamp on the footbed, but I don't know how long they've been doing that. And, C&J doesn't do half sizes on the stamp on the footbed.

That sizing writing is nothing like any C&J I've seen, and I've see a lot.

Interesting, and thanks! I'll pop into the C&J shop in town at the weekend and see if they can shed any light on this.

 

The only other pics I have to hand of anything with that stamp are these:
