^ 318 is a C&J last.

Does anyone know about this? Seen on some Hackett Made in England boots, quite vintage. Never seen writing like this.

Hi! Does anyone recognize those labels? (I couldn't find any similar ones in this thread).

Thanks!
I don't know the first one but the second one seems similar to a Chinese mtm suit that I have.

Ah, you might be on something. I always assumed it was made in Italy but there is no indication of where it's made anywhere. And the label is in english/italian... Look like a slightly dishonest attempt to hide where it's made.

I'd guess English and Italian are for the clients, if so? But the first does say 'Prodotto Italiano', so presumably made in Italy unless you have a reason to think otherwise.

The second one I think might be Munro/Suit Shop (as used by Suit Supply) but would want a second opinion.

Yes the first one is definitely made in Italy (it's a Cordone 1956 suit). The second one is a Rose and Born suit, and they were made in Italy in the past (a brand only available in Sweden so Italian doesn't make sense here if it's made in China)

Not exactly the same but similar none the less

Could anyone assist with identifying the maker for this Luciano Barbera sport coat ?

Is it Canterelli ?

Thanks !

Edit: Found similar in this thread - its Cantarelli indeed.
