    Good idea, but you've got the Cantarelli and Saint Andrew's label switched.

    On the first thread? No they aren't.

    I think that's Lardini. The low-end Italian maker for BB.
    I concur on the label being Lardini. They also make suits/clothing for Ferragamo's men's line and also (I heard) some Italian Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana. I could be wrong about these last two, but for sure on Ferragamo. Agreed re: pushing their product in Japan. Prices seem substantially higher than I'd ever pay, so not sure how that will work as Japanese customers of suits have a HUGE range of options at every pricepoint, including MTM and bespoke common in every town/city. Snapped a few Tombolini labels, as I hadn't seen them posted yet. Another midrange maker, makes garments and some suits for Gianfranco Ferre, Dellacqua, and probably others. Also, I believe, they bought the Hilton/Vestimenta name, though currently these are (I think) just Tombolini. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ Can very well be C&J. What's the code inside the lining?

    ^^ Not sure, I'm deciding whether I should bid on them on eBay and there are no pics of the lining.

    ^ Should ask for the pics of the lining, or at least what it says. The heels are identical with older C&J. Though the soles are similar to those of EG or GMP. They can be an older pair of C&J for EG too. Can't say for sure without the code.

    Fairly sure that there's no such creature.

    I would guess Sargent, but that is 70/30 odds. I could tell for sure with the interior writing.

    Are you sure? I have 3 Caruso suits made for various sellers (BB, Ma.Co, Adriano & Sons). They all have the same tag - not like this one.
