    Cool. Thanks, Snoogz. Any guess on the era? I'm betting late 80s, maybe early 90s, but the detailing is fairly classic.

    Yes.

    BB used to be made by Isaia (confirmed by SF in past posts). Also, tag in the pic looks like a slightly modified regular Isaia tag. The font, layout are the same.

    On a very well constructed blazer that has the cucito por, etc standard Italian form in the other pocket - any insight? Attolini wishful thinking?

    Edit: I think it's actually the alternate Corneliani tag.

    That makes sense - the Made in Italy text on the collar is the same font as the Corneliani jackets I've found. Thanks.

    is the quality high?

    a little similar to castangia,and i can't remember any other high end makers have a so simple tag.

    here is a castangia i listed on B&S, you can see the last pic

    Quality is really high. Some of their suits are made by caruso, but his one doesn't have that tag.

    I think this similar discussion went on when I posted this same label a while back. I believe Wes did some research and determined Trussini was made by Scuderi.

    Nice catch, sorry, it was late here 11 hours ago. Andrea Scuderi, right. But definitely not corneliani.

    Does anyone know the maker of this one? It's from a Gieves & Havkes DB blazer, fully canvassed...
    I have seen Belvest G&H, is this theirs, too?

    It looks quite similar, especially the sequence of boxes but I don't know... It isn't exactly the same. Could it still be Zegna? Can there be slight variation in the tags? Seeing that it was for the English speaking market, they could decide to do it only in English, and change it a bit...

    EDIT:
    Just for reference, this is from the other G&H thing, and it was said to me that this is Belvest:
