Older but slightly more complicated than that.

Burberrys', depending on the garment, is either licensed by American union workers or it's English made and in house. The true Burberry stuff will say Made in England under the name. If it doesn't say that, than it is most likely licensed. So yes it's all the same company and although quality control was maintained by Burberry, not all of the garments were manufactured in house til 2005. This is why you will see vintage Trenches that say made in England and some that don't. Companies bought the rights to use the logo and the Nova check, however "Made in England" is trademarked to Burberry and the only true authentic Burberry pieces.

 

Edit: Although it isn't stated, that tie is Burberry London, which is just a diffusion line of Burberry that was started post 2005 when they developed the contemporary Brit, the mainline London, and then the Luxury Prorsum lines.

 

Great detail @Jompso.  Thanks.  How about when the apostrophe is absent as in the ties that @SpooPoker posted?

To my very novice eye that looks like some variety of Denison Smock, probably the Postwar variety in that link if it's dated 1955.

It's interchangeable and doesn't really make a difference. I have noticed that when the apostrophe is missing it is usually made in England but this is just by chance and not at all true across the board (like in this example). Burberrys' was the unofficial name the brand adopted since it was referred to first as Burberry of London however soon Burberrys' of London. This name stuck so they just stuck with Burberrys' being their brand and logo since it was what they were known as and marketed as. Occassionally the apostrophe got dropped, still meant it was pre 98 and had no barring on whether it was made in house or not. With that said, I'd be willing to guess that those ties are not made in England but are all Italian made. 

 

Edit: I retract, notice that one is English after all, my mistake, the rest Italian

The easiest flip you will ever make. I thrifted mine, got to the car and cut them with the keys and took em to a Jeweler and got like 5 bills on the spot. Mine were 18 but I only had like 4 or 5 or something, couple missing.

I thrifted a pair of Church Consul shoes today but could anyone help decipher what size they are from the scrawl inside?

I think they are either 8 or 8.5 F.

Here are both shoes.

@impuntura I found lots of Aldens and Alden Shell.  I even found a new pair of Alden (calf, no box), but I have NEVER found Alden new in the Box (shell, calf, or otherwise).

Whoa, I have found and sold quite a few Executive Imperials.  But, I had no idea they made SHELL!

Any help is greatly appreciated. I can't find any reference to the jacket or the pocket details anywhere.


 

Those just look like repaired rips from here, unless the rest of the piece is very avant garde.

Looks like 8.5 F to me too. If they are not resoles, they usually have it stamped just at the edge of the front of the heel piece.

Ah ha !
Indeed they do, and much more legible.
8.5 they are.

Thanks

This has to be like the clothing equivalent of an error card.
