    Any luck with this label of who actually produced the suit for Donna Karan? It appears a lot nice then the other suits I have seen from them and has a ton of handwork. Looked back on the main page and 99% sure this is St. Andrews!?!? [​IMG]

    Long shot here but I have a 100% wool tie, made in Italy, but no label. Only clues are the symbol on the silk lining and the script on the content tag (says "Made in Italy" on underside of tag).

    Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Just trawled the whole thread and couldn't find the label I was looking for which is a bit annoying. Anyone know anything similar to the Borrelli tag but with a thick black square around the size? Very high end quality.

    Anyone have any ideas on the maker of these shoes? They are Prada-branded cordovans that I purchased about a decade ago. The footbed is stamped Prada Made in Italy and the only marking on the sole is "by ILGA." The size is stamped on the side of the heel. The odd thing about this sizing is that it is marked 6 1/2 but they fit like a US size 9.

    I fell in the canal with my only small camera which is kaput. I can't exactly walk into a shop and take one with a D200 unfort.

    **Apologies for cross-posting**
    I posted this on several other threads looking for answers to no avail. I was trying to avoid creating a thread but oh well. I had picked these nice shoes up at a thrift store, but unfortunately they are a bit too small after wearing them around.

    I need to list them on eBay but know that without the model and make, I really won't get anything for them.

    In a google search for the 114 last, the only thing that was brought up was Allen Edmonds, but obviously AEs are not made in england...

    ETA: I did polish them up after taking the photos and they really look a lot nicer with a bit of TLC.

    Handsewn Last (114)
    Semi-round toe handsewn last. Shorter to reduce slipping in the heel and gapping in the sides.






    I'd appreciate any advice, and I apologize if this is a stupid question...

    I found out it was Isaia, but if you look closely the tags are slightly different.

    This one is Isaia. What label is it under? Pot leafs look like "hickey," but that can't be.

    Thats right, thanks guys. The second one is Lucian Pellat Finet. There are pot leaf motifs and skulls on the whole lining and on the outside. Its not a SF thing, its an eBay thing. LOL
