    New and Lingwood loafers were THE shoe of choice for Sherman McCoy - Master of the Universe. Sadly, however, I cannot tell you who makes them.

    Anyone have an idea on the maker of these To Boot NY double monks?

    They're "Made in England", and I've read they use mostly Italian makers these days, but these are clearly somewhat old (label style). Note - on the heel, there's a centered nail towards the forward edge, may not be visible in pic, and closed channel stitching - perhaps Grenson? Thanks for any help.

    I would also guess Grenson. Heels with both center nail and dovetail are mostly seen in C&J and Grenson. Though C&J's markings are often more complicated, and Grenson's are simpler.

    This looks sort of like a Corneliani tag, but is that right?

    If it helps, it's in a suit by R. Caruso. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I'm not sure what you're asking here. But it's a Caruso tag. On a Caruso item.

    Cheers

    ^^^ Ok. Thanks. That's what I was asking. For some reason, I thought it may have been made by someone else. Good to know. Thanks.

    Is R. Caruso the same as Raffaele Caruso? Is this some sort of diffusion line?
