    None of these are familiar to me.

    The suit looks nice enough, peak lapel two button (slightly higher buttoning stance than I'm used to) pick stitching, jetted pockets, ticket pocket, side vents...rise is slightly higher than current fashion as well.

    Sorry about the tilted image, it reads: Fabric by Marzotto.

    Anyone?

    Anyone recognize these at all, these are the only labels that are present? They're from a canvassed 3 piece suit that seems very British.

    David Eden makes very poor quality footwear. His exotic shoes are some of the cheapest and poor quality skins being sold. :hide:

    Can't comment on his exotics since my pair is suede and I thrifted them for $2 but I disagree with them being poor quality. They're not Lobbs but they're not Stafford either.

    Hey guys, I gotta slight challenge for you all. I came across a pair of Cole Haans tassle loafers at a thrift, like one would find at just about any thrift, however these caught my eye for some reason and I picked em up and looked in on the insole and saw that they were made in England, then looked at the heel and said holy shit. Never heard of English bench made Cole Haans, these gotta be rare so I was sure to snatch these up (for all of 7 bucks), but my question is, do any of you recognize that nail pattern. It looks familiar but I can't place it. Thank you all for any help in advance.

    Can anyone identify the maker of this Breuer sports coat? I've only ever seen Breuer ties before, so I assume that it was made for them. Thanks.

    Anyone recognize this? From a Tornabuoni Firenze SC. The 'wool and cashmere' tag looks familiar, but the maker's label isn't ringing any bells.

    I'm a vintage man (vintage audio gear, vinyl, wrist watches, motorbike etc.) and a nice thrift find of a pair of beautiful worn (and worn) brown Alden cap toe blucher got me into vintage shoes as well. I the cupboard I then found a pair of vintage Norwegian plain toe blucher with only to rows of laces that I found years ago.

    Here are the two pair (with a pair of Lloyd shoes that I don't brag about):

    [​IMG]

    Yesterday I bought a pair of vintage black cap toe oxfords that might not be goodyear welted but look like a good shoe anyway.

    In the shoes the golden brand logo and name is almost worn away, so I haven't been able to find any info about shoes or the brand on the great web (if there is any).

    Here are the shoes in a fancy, not very illustrative photo:

    [​IMG]

    Here is a more straight foreward photo:

    [​IMG]


    And here is the worn down logo and name:

    [​IMG]


    I see the remains of a golden laurel wreath and three capital letters. I have tried to google any thinkable combination of letters with a M in the middle, but with no luck.

    Inside the shoes, on the side I find these numbers "38022 14 09"/"38022 13 9" (resp. right/left shoe)

    Maybe some of you good shoe people can help me or get me in the right track.

    Bonus info:

    I'm living in Denmark - the shoes might be local and unknown outside this small country.

    All I’ve been able to ascertain is that it looks like the same firm that does suits for Saks. Nobody seems to know who that is, however.
