    Man there are so many surprising labels I have come across....
    Kiton shirts for Oxford would be one (the yellow on black that says made in Italy-made obvious by the amount of hand work)
    Oxxford for Paul Stuart
    Isaia For Paul Stuart
    Borrelli for Arny's paris (shirts)
    Borgioli for Certo
    Loro Piana for Michael Bastian


    Funny, almost every desirable label out there makes for other labels. It pays to know your labels, nail patterns, shirt labels, etc.
    Ill leave it at that.

    I got the below jacket today. At first I thought it was Attolini bassed on all the stitching on the lapels and shoulder, but realizing it looks an awful lot like the Sartoria Partenopea label someone posted. Any thoughts?

    ^ Neither, and AFAIC its not a "major" maker.

    It seems very similar to the SP label though- why you so confident it's not a major maker?

    I think he meant AFAIK, as far as I know.

    I beleive I've seen it before. I'll post a pic if I can confirm.

    Being sold at Tincati, it's already an assurance of topgrade quality.

    This is made by Gabo Napoli as I suspected:

    Ha yes my internet lingo is limited- it's an awesome jacket- I was convinced it was attolini given all the double stitching everywhere- but I see the tag does not match. I have been to the NYC Tincati store and they really have phenomenal stuff. They told me last time I was there that they have their own manufacturer now- perhaps it's their own production? I was a bit skeptical of that but it's certainly possible.

    Ah- for some reason I thought Gabo was made by Isaia? In that case, I should get some Gabo Napoli stuff- this jacket is great

    G.abo is only made in-house. Their head tailor and co-founder Gianfranco did work for Isaia, which has their factory basically next door, for many years. If I'm not entirely mistaken I think he was even head of the tailoring department at one point. I also believe he prior to joining Isaia worked for Attolini, so it's not odd that you see similarities.

    I really, really like G.abo stuff. Easily the best value for money Neapolitan tailoring I've tried. Fun story is that twice, Orazio Luciano himself have complimented me on my G.abo jackets, saying they looked beautifully made. The second time he actually asked his son, not knowing that I understand Italian, if the jacket I was wearing was one of theirs.

    New lardini label

    Also I am pretty sure that the label of "Cantarelli 2" is scuderi
