    Looks similar to Caruso tags

    Thanks guys, you’re right. I found a Caruso jacket in the same place, coincidentally; I should have compared them.

    I found a jacket with the exact set of labels and could never come to a definitive conclusion, but all signs pointed to it being rather worthless unfortunately.

    It looks like one of those Today's Man Made in Italy Labels.

    Bergdorf Goodman. Made in Japan. Very nice. It only has one tag internally. Any ideas on the maker?

    I have the same shoes -- and the same question. Searching the thread, but if anyone has a quick answer, I'd be grateful.

    Isn't that one the standard Peerless tag?

    I have a question but NO photos.

    I picked up a Turnbull & Asser Navy blazer. It appears to have been custom done and there are no tags in it anywhere. The T&A name is embroidered on the lining below the pocket. Full Canvass, decent amount of hand work.

    Doesn't say England or Italy.

    Are they like PRL who have traditionally used a couple of makers or do they make their own tailored clothing?

    There isn't really much consensus on who makes for T&A. Their stuff is always good quality though and mostly made in the UK.

    The Caruso tag on page one for PRL looks to be wrong, though I think it's been mentioned several times here. It's Corneliani for sure...right?

    One of those 4's might mean D width? Some eBayer once explained to me that the Stuart McGuires I had that were stamped 6100 meant 10 EE. EE corresponding to 6 if 1 is A, 2 is B, 4 is D etc. So if 470 was the size that would make it a 7D, but you would probably know that based on your own feet. If it's the 409? number it could be 9 or 9.5D.
