    Can anybody please help me identify who made my patch pocket blazer? The other tag inside the collar says "MADE IN USA OF IMPORTED FABRIC"

    THANK YOU

    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?

    Not C&J. That is the same writing inside of English Cole Haans. I think they are Cheaney. IIRC, Cheaney's all say "Made in Leather Sole England" on the footbed.

    There is no "Made in Leather Sole England", but I guess it's not C&J for sure. Thanks.

    To make sure we are talking about the same area, I'm not talking about on the heel pad. I am talking about halfway down the shoe on the leather insole (could be partially covered by the heel pad).

    Yes, we're on the same page, since I do have a pair of Brooks Brothers by Cheaney.

    As you can see these need re-crafting but I'm not sure who made them. I bought them in New & Lingwood in about 2003 but I have no idea if they actually made the shoes or whether they were out-sourced:

    Thanks for any help!

    Edit: I don't live anywhere UK and time difference makes calling N&L a bit of an issue.

    Fairly certan those are C&J. They make shoes for N&L, and the writing is consistent with C&J Mainline shoes.

    Is anyone familiar with this BB line? There was apparently a silver label "Hand Tailored" line, but the label was completely different. This was made in USA. [​IMG]
