Stuck on these... Made in England and nice tight stitching on the soles makes me optimistic, but struggling - is 410 a last? I can't identify it.

Alan McAfee? The marks next to the welt are very reminiscent of "custom grade" by Church's; and that's what McAfee were for a while.

That could be a good shout Alan McAfee. I did kind of think Church's when I was looking at the "MADE IN ENGLAND" on the sole. Thanks

Do these Berluti look legit? I wasn't very impressed by the soles, but is this OK?

A very interesting pair of Ede & Ravenscrofts. I bought because I thought they were Cheaney based on the pictures I could see, but now I'm not sure as I don't recognise the 697 last as being Cheaney. Any thoughts?

I have finally found a reference to last 697 being Gravati. I don't know much about Gravati, could they have made for Ede?

Hello fellow enthusiasts! I need your precious help and expertise on identifying the Italian Manufacturer of this Patrick Hellmann suit. As you will see in the photos bellow, the inner label is much worn out (I really do not know why, because the rest of the suit seems new), but maybe someone could enlighten me with their experience. Thanks a lot in advance for taking the time to help me! :)

Dear all,

I’d like to solicit your opinion on a jacket I’m contemplating buying online. The seller is claiming that the jacket in question was made by KITON, although I have my doubts on it. According to the seller, KITON produced this jacket for a niche Italian brand and he is supporting his claim by the following pictures.

Can anyone please help me out in confirming or rejecting the seller’s assertions?

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated!

Don't look like Gravati.. Gravati is an Italian shoemaker.
Since those are denoted with "F" width, it's more likely an English made shoe.

I'd say Edward Green or older Grenson..
Older Grenson used the word "style" on the size print, including the "Masterpiece" custom made ones.
Those look like the older Masterpiece models actually (with invisible channel stitch).

Hello fellow enthusiasts ! I will once again need your precious help and guidance on the maker of this suit. I, really, do not have a clue on who would that be. Is it of high quality? And is this by the way solaro ? 🤔 Thank you very much in advance.
