    Regarding this label with the words "BLUE LABEL" written on it, would this correspond to a Polo I, II, III or IV?

    That's before they had all of the various cuts.

    Who makes these shoes? Seller says C&J Handgrade, but my feeling says AS.

    Should be C&J, but they're not handgrade.

    That's before they had all of the various cuts.

    Polo has used the nomenclatures of I, II & III since the first suits in the early '70s. The Roman numerals represent model numbers. Even within a specific model number construction has varied with regard to lapel widths, shoulder/sleeve-head, waist suppression, vents, length and sleeve width. Polo IV was originally 'Astaire' until Fred Astaire sued sometime in the '70s. There have been a plethora of suit/sport jacket non-numerical model designations for various styles over the years. These include Princeton, Farifax, Hardy, New Traditional, Grant, Tradition I, on and on. 'Blue Label' may have always been printed on the Cornelaini/PRL production tags, which date to '99.

    Can you identify this label? [​IMG] I have just found that someone else posted the same label but noone replied:
    I purchased a few pairs of trousers in a lot but one pair didn't have any tags or labels. The trousers have some really nice hand finished details. [​IMG]

    dear masters of labels and nail patterns, could anyone identify this Jil Sander Suit Label, please? edit: Jil Sander Tailor Made I´ve found it in this thread in a pal zileri sartoriale somewhere on the first pages. Is Pal Zileri the maker (never heard about that he makes suits himself), what quality could I expect? The trousers look damn good crafted, but I´m not sure on the Jacket, as I´m a little noob on quality suits biz. Have had much Designer Stuff only. What should I pay for such a suit (NWT), if it fits good, but not perfekt (trousers have to be shortened as they are unhemmed and tightened a little at the waist, Sleevelenght is about 1" too long), colour and Fabrik is good enough to go with it through the most of important meetings I have. thanks a lot and best regards d

    Just checked my closet, my Lubiam suit has that exact same label, only with Lubiam SpA marked at the lower left box so that's definitely one possibility.
