Confusion in RL shoes from another thread:
The made in Italy RL shoes (like the Stanton), have Ralph Lauren written in script just like the purple label shoes but have made in Italy rather than England engraved in the sole. To further confuse, the box is purple. It seems RL now distinguishes between the Polo RL shoes, the Ralph Lauren ones (like the better blue label suits) e.g. the Sullivan and the Stanton, and purple label shoes but seem to mark RL shoes the same as purple label and they come in a purple box.
