I'm so glad I'm not the only one who sees that. I've seen ties with nekkid pin-up girls on the inside lining, but this is far more subtle.

It really depends, as far as dress shoes are concerned I was under the impression they were pretty much solely English so the maker would depend on the nail pattern of the heels unless someone here is privy to a certain firm they have been known to contract Italian made models to.
If C&J they'd be marked with a UK size and then maybe US as well, really depends where they were made...it looks English so I'm gonna go ahead and guess it'll be stamped English but hey I've been wrong before so anyones guess...or knowledge..
There have been a few Italian makers for Polo shoes, some more well-known than others. I know for sure Sassetti has made some, but there are others. You should probably go over to the Polo shoe thread and ask there.post #18049 of 5116510/24/15 at 8:45pmpost #18050 of 5116510/24/15 at 8:47pm
i think the story with the heels is if you look at wear patterns you really only need replace that rubber portion of the heel.
and i suspect the dovetail is merely an "old-world, traditional" flourish as a way of keeping integrity of the joint (a la dovetail drawers vs butt joints in cabinets, or dovetail neck joints versus mortise-and-tenon in guitar necks). it takes more skill to match the joint but it has the advantage of not peeling apart as easily.
guitar necks are actually compound dovetails, and it's usually a very very skilled person who does this. same with drawers - it's sort of the height of traditional western joinery. i sort of wonder if there's a dude in a shoe factory who actually chisels the rubber or if it's just run through a machine. it might just be marketing smoke.post #18051 of 5116510/24/15 at 8:49pmQuote:
Ah, I'm glad you know it's a Porsche at least. 2008 Cayman S. Pops bought it off the showroom floor in 2008, and it touches pavement about once per year. I believe there's like 1200 miles on it. "Ferris, he never drives it. He just rubs it with a diaper!". It's one of a few in his collection, and it happens to live in the workshop with my inventory lol.
The windowpane SC is a gem that I scored a couple years ago. It was on a mannequin in a boutique thrift store window in Seattle. I knew just from the fabric that it was of exceptional quality. Unfortunately there are absolutely 0 makers marks, tags, fabric content labels, etc. Nothing to identify it. It IS however almost entirely hand made. Every lining seam, every pick stitch, every button-hole is hand sewn.
I'm like 99.9% sure the fabric is from Carlo Barbera Mills, as I once saw a Luciano Barbera womens SC with the EXACT same fabric... right down to the weave. I have no idea on the maker though. I'm thinking it was a custom piece from Savile Row. It's possible there were some makers labels inside the lining, but they were removed. When I purchased it, it was way too small for me... But now since losing weight, it actually fits like a glove. I wish it were side vented, or even single vented... but its still an amazingly striking jacket. I planned on wearing it this Halloween. It's the type of jacket that you notice from down the street... I love the thing, and will never part with it. I can provide some sexy photos of it soon.
Oh and I think I payed like $25 for it.post #18052 of 5116510/24/15 at 8:52pmpost #18053 of 5116510/24/15 at 9:13pm

Having owned Sassettis I know that isn't the case here (unless that heels been touched, which I'm kinda leaning yes but could be wrong), but a thread dedicated strictly to Polo shoes should end all mysteries.post #18058 of 5116510/24/15 at 9:27pmpost #18059 of 5116510/24/15 at 9:27pmpost #18060 of 5116510/24/15 at 9:27pm
