    At first I thought this was old old Caruso for Hugo Boss Baldessarini but am not so sure. Anyone else chime in?

    That looks like all the old Boss tags I find with names like Corleone, that tag looks almost identical.

    Thanks for all help given for all I've asked (and all I've learned!)...

    Any help with THIS one? Main tag is “Santorelli”, and I'm guessing this is from maybe five or six years ago? But is Santorelli a licensor or do they make it themselves?

    Hello,

    I am hoping someone can help me identify a pair of Florsheim Wingtips that I recently acquired? They are a little beat up. The inside of the tongue appeared to have felt sewn to it which is torn. There is a small blue sewn in label inside one of the shoes that indicates "The Florsheim Shoe" I have attached several pic to assist.

    Thanks,

    Recently I found in my closet footwear company Chester.
    Spent the whole day at the computer in search of. But the model of shoes and failed to find.
    Now tell you what I was able to extract from these shoes:
    I looked inside one of the shoes. Read the inscription: [Chester], [England], [absolute comfort], [the climate (C)].
    I looked further into the boot and found another inscription [Vero Cuoio].
    Inside the Shoe there is a strange inscription. (I think this is inventory number): [TM7211217DPR] the last letter can't be right..
    I attach photos for identification. Please help me understand what a model!!!

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to identify the exotic skin type that these are. I don't think they're any form of cow leather, definitely not the usual suspects (ostrich, gator/croc, stingray). I guess buffalo is possible as well, though I'm not familiar with it. My thought was elephant maybe? The skins are super soft (think napa leather in softness). Any help identifying is appreciated! Pictures below.

    Maker is Gravati for Arthur Beren, if that matters at all.

    I realize this may not be the correct place for this, but no other thread seems to fit, and I figured the great IDers here might have a better shot of knowing than anyone else. As a consequence, though, I've spoilered the pics for selective consumption.

    Thanks in advance!

    Looking at that it says Amir. Found out who now. Wonder if still avail, seems like a good flip.
    If that's a tie, I hope you picked up. $650 retail on a tie?

    Alright, you gents were so helpful the last go-round this weekend, so I thought I would come back for more (also, the main exotics ID thread seems dead).

    Would love help determining whether these are Croc (I believe), Alligator (possible), or embossed leather (I don't think so, but could be wrong). I still have not become skilled at distinguishing them. They are made by David Eden, who is well known for exotics including alligator and croc, if that helps at all. Bonus points if someone can clarify whether/how to tell if this is the well-desired belly skin, if croc. Thanks in advance!

    Looks croc to me, but I could be wrong. I have a pair of David Eden and they're solid shoes.

    Yea it's Amir, he's trying to be the next Bijan out here. He buys billboards next to Bijan and contracts a lot of his garments from top tier tailoring houses, and prices his stuff absolutely insane just like Bijan did/does (whoever is in charge now) to make it elite. I came up on a few blazers, one cash, a couple months ago but they were a little older.

    ^^Thanks, I took my chances with it, we'll see when it comes in. True enough about the bad resale, hope I make out ok, probably should have done more research.
