I just meant it to mean, everyone else is doing it.  It wouldn't surprise me, not that I've seen it in person.

Lo siento, el señor Wes, la chaqueta es muy simbatico. Any LA guys ever run into Mark McNairy at the flea market?

yeah, it wouldn't surprise me either, they have over 60 official outlets in China(2 in UK, 4 in US).

I had an email convo with them where i repeatedly asked if they make anything in china or is it all in Italy and they would not answer that question, they just asked for photos of my jacket, which i supplied and then they stopped communication even after polite reminder messages.

It's possible for P&S to be made in China, I haven't seen that tag in person though.
There's a good guide, most importantly this:
1.) Every single Paul & Shark item sold has an identifying code on the swing tags, for example, item code i04p702, colour 050, which is navy blue, size tgu, which is a cap size or s, m, l, xl, xxl, xxxl. They also have lot number like 04884-3 on the washing label and the neck label. They start with cop, 103, e05 or e05. Then following this about 5 more numbers go after it.


From here:

Thanks for the link. Bookmarked for future reference.

The few belts that I've handled, one of which came from that very store, always have the "Mont" on top of the "Blanc" on the printing on the leather.

Funny how these things go. Saw this at a stop on the way home. Ventura but has the oxxford button stitch thingee. Whatever it is called.


A few other royal classics there as well and they did not have the stitch.
