Many many many stores order shoes/suits/etc. from the manufacturer, and have the store name along with the manufacturers name. I have seen Santonis labelled with "Santoni for (or "per") ............", along with many other brands eg. Mantellassi, Testoni, yes - even John Lobb (in a store in Lucca, Italy).

Maybe we have the best Santoni's in the world, the creme de la creme of the Santoni's at 50% al la Vergelio. Surely a shop wouldn't rip up the original Santoni insole just to put `Vergelio by Santoni'??
