    i search on the google already but without a brand on the shoes is much more difficult the an accurate search: i visit the loake site, but i dont see any model like these ones,and in the inner lining sole they have loake marked.

    From what I'm reading from this thread, these BB wingtips are Sutor Mantellassi, lower end line, correct?

    This is a weird request. I know the maker of this overcoat (Brioni), but I want to know what it's made of or any other information you can glean from this label:

    I'm not sure if KARKL means anything as far as content, but a list has been posted here not long ago with all the material abbreviations. ws/wo is camel hair or mohair and wool blend I believe. Someone else should be able to confirm.

    Sorry, no ideas on the maker, but I own a pair of the same brand, also wholecuts. They're fine shoes, but nothing top of the line I'd say. I believe they're primarily sold in the French market and in some German department stores. Prices range from about €200-400, but I believe they're often on sale. Edit: I just did a completed search on French eBay and it looks like a couple of pairs sold for between €25-35.
    Unfortunately, as above, I don't know the maker of these but I own them as well. I think I tried to search for the maker when I bought them and came up empty handed :confused:
    It's actually cashmere and wool, but no idea on the ratio. Assuming that's what the WS and WO mean. The next letters throw me off as they're cotton and ______. Nothing on the GN. Possibly they're internal codes as opposed to fabric content codes. Are there any other two letter codes on the tags? I believe if this coat is new (assuming it is), then it should have some contents written somewhere visible, by law. Here's the link to the codes: http://reviews.ebay.com/TEXTILE-FIB...-amp-TRANSLATION-CHART?ugid=10000000004399884

    I think I've seen one or two, but I can't remember if they were on odd jackets or a suit. I'm clueless on the maker, but it could have been made for the European market. Sorry!

    Anyone help me with this? I know the label and can't remember the maker. This is on a Hugo Boss Baldessarini.
