Using the excuse that in Canada that what you call "jackass" type guys is kind of a silly excuse.  PHV, Im sure you meant nothing by it, but I am telling you that its pretty offensive.  
I can assure you it's not a Canada thing - it's a derogatory phrase - period.

There's a few really nice shoes on that site - as well as some horrible ones. Interesting to note that one pair of 'Geraldo Fossati' shoes... ... uses the exact same pattern as a pair of Lattanzis that Discostu was selling a while back: Can anyone explain this? I've never heard of Fossati. Do Lattanzi make for them? I have a hard time believing this is a commonly shared pattern...

Cool Aubercy shoes, though. What do you think of the different color lace on the right Fossati shoe? Maybe someone who speaks Japanese can call the store and get the answer.

I have no idea. I couldn't find any reference to Fossati anywhere. However, I would note that the price listed for the Fossati shoes is 100,000 yen less than the price listed for the Lattanzi shoes. As for the pattern, it looks like a plain old 6-eyelet plain-toe bal with a slightly square toe; it's not really unusual. Putting brogueing on a shoe or taking it off is an easy thing to do, so that's not determinative.

Good one. Funny how a picture of an interesting jacket started a flame war

Yeah, everyone had better make sure they read their post seven times before effectively sending it...

No one knows the designer?
I don't remember being to this particular store, but chances are, it is made by some really obscure Italian factory or made locally by Japanese tailors.

if you read the address, aristocratico is in the tokyu department store, which caters to a very conservative crowd i was recently in tokyo and went to tokyu but don't recall much other than they sell very conservative clothing, and if i recall correctly, includes their own label, aristrocratico i did a little research and found that aristocratico sells the following labels for suits, trousers, coats and jackets: aristocratico scotland aristocartico japan sartoria donato rizzi gian franco bommezzadri luciano barbera saint andrews brunello cucinelli and there is mention of kiton so it narrows it down a bit

So, it is probably Italian. Jon.

Could easily be Barbera, come to think of it. The "country gentleman" thing.

Does it mean that, in your opinion, the store label would not consider "copying" an Italian design?  Any reason why not?

Absolutely incorrect. Any person around here who dresses with a popped collar, an $80 vintage t-shirt, puma's, and one of those rediculous faux hawks (or a vondutch hat worn slightly to the side) will quite readily be called a gino. Whether they are Italian, Arab, French Canadian or what have you. In fact the most common perpatrators are Americans comming here over the weekend. I meant absolutely nothing racist by it. It is a look. Just like the "All American Jackass". Again, I see no one getting up in arms about something that could clearly be taken as a racial slur against Americans. Or how about the word "Chav", slung about like a common word on this board. It is refering to a lower white class, and is in itself very derogatory. So don't give me all this hoopla. About the jacket, I still maintain that it is something like Etro. The most sought after brand of the type of person I have been describing.

Ok, somebody has to pay the long-distance and ask that department store who makes the jacket.

Looks Italian to me because of the lapel roll. PHV - you, my friend, need to step off the over generalizations. Everyone is sick of Von Dutch trucker hats, $80 vintage t-shirts, faux-hawks and such, but you're just pissing everyone off. I like Etro, and I like Burberry, but so what? I never thought that wearing a navy check scarf made me a "type of person."
