    Do you have a shot of the numbers/code on the inside?

    I thought it would be Sutor. But the nail pattern didn't quite match up.

    The green sole made me think of Santoni, but the rubber inset (?) in the heels is different from my Santoni's, FWIW.

    Can anyone tell me a little more about this jacket based on this label? The other label reads "MACO Soragna," which I assume means it's from Ma.Co. aka Caruso, but no one confirmed that when I posted the label in another thread. Any other information regarding quality relative to other MaCo-produced lines (RLBL, Caruso, Adriano & Sons) would be appreciated. [​IMG] Also, when I bought it, it was listed as 60% Abaca (aka Manila hemp), but the only translations I can find of "Canapa" simply call it hemp. I'm assuming it's the latter; is there any reason to think it's the former?

    Hmm.. not sure what I did wrong on my Belgrave photo. Probably a typo somewhere. I'll try and figure it out a bit later this evening. In the mean time, here are some shots from my new acquisitions.

    Right, but the heal pattern throws me. I've not seen a C&J that looks like that. Can anyone confirm that?
