    I agree with you. I saw them as well. Almost pulled the trigger. But generally, when I take risks on shoes I try to buy them around my size, just in case they don't sell. Although, most of the time they end up in my closet regardless. [​IMG]

    That's how I end up with 40 pairs of shoes stacked 5 high on my shelves and a wife bitching about me having more than her

    No, I don't BUT, When Hanover was still in existence, they made the Shell Cordovan (and some other) shoes for Stuart McGuire and Bostonian. I have even see some that had bed linings branded Hanover and then over-branded Stuart McGuire. Living just outside of Hanover, I see their stuff all the time. Plus, as I've mentioned before, my mother in law and her sisters worked in the Hanover Shoe factory, stitching shoes, and have verified the cross branding.

    All three brands mentioned used combination lasts.
    All three would have used the same Sole stamp above.
    I am saying Hanover on yours because of the numbering. A lot of their shoes are 25xx numbers
    Stuart McGuire by Hanover model numbers always start with an OV-

    Closest I saw in the thread was a similar one posted by barrel back in aug 2012 which no-one answered.

    Hi, everyone. I can't seem to figure out who the manufacturer of this suit is. Looks like it's a decently made garment. It's made in Italy, fully canvassed, okay fabric, with surgeon cuffs. Though it seems mainly machine made based on the buttonholes, etc. Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    ^^Definitely St. Andrews.

    Just as a heads up, the first page has a lot of the maker's tags (including St. Andrews). A quick look through them would've given you your answer.

    Thanks for the quick response. I uploaded the post from my phone as the first couple of pages of this thread were taking some time to load.

    Does anyone know who makes shoes for Peter Millar?

    Doesn't look like anything special to me, not sure if this picture helps.

    i found a coat ,which is said made with kiton fabric ,on ebay
    it sounds strange to me, and of course, in fact i hope it's made by kiton[​IMG]
    so need you guys' help to confirm or falsify my guess

    the coat brand is Porcaro that i think it's a boutique in Italy.

    Obviously this doesn't prove anything, but that cashmere label is similar to the ones they use inside Kiton jackets, however, the interior construction doesn't look to be on par with top level Kiton construction.

    We need pictures of the inner tags to be sure.

    Quote: Kiton has bought a number of high end mills, including Barbera. All this sign says is that some of their fabrics were made expressly for porcaro. I'm assuming if Burberry wanted to develop a line of suits with Kiton fabric, they would develop a line for them.

    Same way suit makers try to increase their perceived value by using Zegna or Loro Piana fabric.

    I had a HF suit with a Loro Piana tag saying "exclusively for Hickey Freeman"

    Could someone help me ID this tag? Caruso? The tag is attached to a Brooks Brothers Loro Piana Storm System wool overcoat.
