    Have you checked the small pocket in the bottom left, for your pocket watch? The Attolini tag is usually in there. Does Coppley make for Coppley? Or is this the Samuelsohn tag? [​IMG] Edit: Wait, just saw the CA # and remembered that someone once posted a website to look up CA registration numbers. I bookmarked it but have since lost my bookmarks due to a Windows 7 upgrade. Can someone post that website link again? Edit 2: Found it. Coppley.

    99.99% sure, but still want to check... EG, right????


    EDIT: I DUN GOOF'D. C&J Handgrade. Huzzah!

    The "Polo" is odd- I think these shoes are from the era of the blue script RL label, all I can think of. The heels and soles are either originals or factory recrafts, they're flawless.

    Bought these on eBay thinking I was getting C&Js- the pictures sucked. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box! :D

    Haven't found any Attolini tag, I have two other LBCS by Attolini and this has a different silhouette.

    Help date this HF.... I know the union tag is 49-62' which give me a good range to start :)

    I've seen the red label before and found a St Andrews tag inside.

    Perhaps, then, the top label is bespoke, the second OTR, and the third MTM? The red label with St Andrews tag I saw certainly looked like a MTM piece.

    Are these anything, or just some random Italian maker? On Nordstrom tassel loafers. I could have sworn I recognized the heel, and the "handcrafted" got me excited, but I couldn't find anything in the thread. Nails highlighted in red.
