    This label from a Faconnable sport coat was posted earlier in the thread, but I don't think there ever was an agreement about the maker. If there was or if someone knows the label, can someone help me out? An Ebay listing says its Cantarelli but it doesn't match the other Cantarelli labels I've seen.

    I may be wrong, but older Caruso?

    Sorry to bump guys, but does anybody recognise this label (presumably Italian)? I've looked at my own collection, and ruled out Zegna, Brioni, LB, Caruso, Canali, Cantarelli and Corneliani. Yet I'm sure I've seen it before. It is driving me bonkers.

    The cloth was by LP, if that helps.

    ^Looks a lot like Gruppo GFT to me. They're a contract manufacturer, and they made a lot of Armani Mani products, among other things.

    Can anyone chime in on these Peal &Co / Brooks Brothers boots please?

    Alfred Sargent or Crockett and Jones? Sole/heels are crepe rubber.

    Thanks!

    Not much to go by on the Peals. I'm going to say Sargent because the C&Js for Peal that I own, and have seen, generally have the sizing info etc., hand written.

    We need some more pics. Loake made some of the crepe soled Peals too. Without more pics it's sort of tough to tell.
    Edit: Especially if those are recent, I'd bet they are Loake. That printing doesn't look like AS or C&J.

    A pic of the actual boot would be helpful.

    Beautiful boots! I'm not recognizing them or the printing. Nothing else printed inside on the insole?

    Any idea who makes these Peals? AS Peals usually have the double row of nails, C&Js usually have the dovetailed heel with the clipped corner and the single nail in the middle, and Loakes lately have the nail pattern in groups of 3 and the slanted rubber. Just wondering who makes these.
