    Hoping for some help on this label. From a 2000's era Prada suit. Feels fully canvassed to me, but could be half.

    Thread suggested their suits were done by Belvest or Cantarelli with Scuderi as an outlier suggestion. This didn't match any of these I saw.

    Picked up this suit without a label. In doing some online research, the upside would be that it might be a Brioni. However, there is no "B" on the material tag so maybe it's something else. As always, any help/thoughts would be appreciated:

    Thanks. I looked at a number of the Mabro labels and hadn't seen this one. All the ones I saw had the sizing on the lower right in the corneliani/ Canali style.

    Appreciate the call.

    This thread is becoming a doozie to search through, had to break it into a couple sessions. Still didn't see this one.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have a picture of the size and model info on the inside of the shoes?

    It's on the tag, Conf. Di Matelica. Usually made in Italy, sometimes in Portugal or Spain.

    Thank you sir...it's fully canvassed but very lightly constructed...great summer jacket!

    Are they known as a higher end manufacturer?

    They're fine. Not "SF approved" for whatever that's worth, but it's certainly significantly better than Jos. A Bank. I'd have no problem wearing it, but most people here would encourage something nicer if you can afford it.

    Dear Sirs,

    I would appreciate it very much if you could assist to ID the maker for these pair of Neiman Marcus Suede Captoe Boots.

    I have a hunch it is from Alfred Sargent but could be Loake as well.

    Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    ^^Not the resident expert here, but those that are usually need to see the sole for the heel pattern to help determine the maker.
