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


    They are not C&J. I always forget the one pictured. They are very old. Either Sargent or Trickers.

    I was under the impression that only RL and C&J make for RL but obviously I'm mistaken! Does anyone know who makes these? [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks in advance!

    IT SAYS ON THE RIGHT SIDE "FACIS". I believe this to be the maker, as I've had a few different suits made by them


    Thanks, didn't realize that that's the suit maker.

    Here's another for you, no store or maker tags, just a "Made in Italy" at the neck:

    Can anyone help ID these? These are vintage Burberry's that I pilfered from my Dad's closet quite a while ago and I just rediscovered them in the far recesses of my own closet. It looks like they have had some sole work done, but I'm a complete neophyte when it comes to shoe repair, so I have no idea if the heel and/or nail pattern has been altered.

    almost certainly D'Avenza
    I think they make great jackets.. styled a lot like Brioni, but often fly under the radar

    ^Ah, thanks. D'Avenza hadn't occurred to me. I have a D'Avenza around here somewhere, I think. I'll track it down and look at the tag. Thanks!
