    As far as I can tell, I believe they are one and the same. The R, Caruso is an earlier label than the one we tend to see around. I believe they (R. Caruso) should be the same construction as the standard Caruso stuff. Anyone's welcome to correct me if I'm mistaken.

    Cheers

    Exactly the same. Those guys change their label so often it doesn't really mean anything.

    Need help id'ing these. They're blowing my mind. The writing on the diagonal strip on the insole is illegible.

    Thanks - I guess he would be the one. I'll try, but does he still log in to the forum these days?
    From the heel and nail pattern it looks closest to Sutor as shown on page 1, but I'm not sure .. :p
