    In my quest for the most obscure foreign clothing labels, I have now found this. Â It is quite lovely and fits...nearly. Â To ebay I expect. The label is in Greek: Â [​IMG] Can anybody tell me what it says? One other detail of the jacket is lovely stitching around the collar: [​IMG] yours, mack11211

    Collective groan from the forum in 4, 3, 2, 1.......

    I can read ancient Greek pretty well, and if you can print the label larger, I am sure I could transliterate it for you.

    Okay, it's "Aleuos Katraphilias" (obviously the maker), "Tel: 232-970; "Panepistemiou 61" (presumably a street address. Athens I assume because he would probably specify it if it were any other Greek city.) Hope this helps.

    you beat me to it, I was just about to post the same thing. Panepistemiou is a main street in Athens.
