This is one of Alexander Kraft’s new line of suits. Any idea who made it?

^ 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.

Alfred Sargent. You can see similar examples from some of the Alfred Sargent for J Crew models or Alfred Sargent for Peal & Co.

Anyone recognize these on the Sid Mashburn Virgil 2 current year? Have seen Campagna, Caruso, and Partenopea from them but this doesn’t seem to match.

hello, would anyone be so kind to identify these markings on a pair of military style boots made in England. Who might be the manufacturer? Thank you.

A bit too hastily I put in a bid on some Dunhill suit on Ebay - afterwards I noticed some sketchy looking details, which reminded me a bit too much off counterfeit items.

I requested more pictures, and got the following of the label. Clearly it's made in China, and thus not Zegna-made mainline Dunhill.

I'm thinking maybe store uniform, or something similar? Some of the fashion brands have lower-quality clothes made for uniform use, often made in China / Mexico / etc.

I don't think it's fake, as the fake labels I've seen don't look anything like that - and from what I can see, the lapel hole looks a bit decent (see top right area of the last picture)

Can anybody recognize this nail pattern?

It's supposedly made in italy but I couldn't find it on any of the usual (italian) suspects.
