    Found a jacket which fit me incredibly well, although there was no label on it, and the only thing of use I could find was this fabric label: [​IMG] Can anyone make any sense of it/know who made it? Apologies for the terrible picture!

    Found in basement, bought long time ago in Baldessarini shop with Baldessarini tags and bags. Sadly, beaten up quite a bit.

    1) Who is the maker?
    2) What is the style of these shoes (derbies?)?
    3) Is it ok to wear them with a suit? with jeans?

    Cheers in advance!

    1) C&J 2) Bluchers 3) I wouldn't, but some people probably would. Those are in major need of a resole.

    I'm interested in seeing tags for newer Baldessarini suits, they used to be Caruso (they were one of carusos first clients i've heard, and invested a lot in upgrading the caruso factory for their project) many years ago but they might have switched

    Got these from my uncle who bought them from Woolf Brothers in Kansas City way back when. The inside of the shoe says "Expressly for Woolf Brothers," but I can't read any other makers info. I took a picture of the size and what I think's the production number and last number. They have had the heels replaced, but they look like they have their original soles. Not in great shape right now, but we'll see what some TLC can do for them.

    Another label question, this time from a cashmere overcoat.

    Sorry for the two shots. The label is folded and sewn.

    I asked this in "ask a quick question" but did not get a response. I spotted a pair of "Esquire by Edward Green" wingtips while thrifting the other day. No sign of "Made in England" which seemed odd. Does anybody know what these are exactly?

    The nail pattern is one used by C&J, but I think those are Cheaney. The internal sizing writing is probably needed to be certain.

    Yeah, I am not sure if it's C&J too. Should this help?
