I know I've seen this one before...C&J?
I am curious if anyone can tell me if this is one of the Zegna higher lines or just simply another way to write the lower Z Zegna type of suits. It has the full name with a Z above it in a circle, and without knowing the history of the labels I am a little confused on what kind of suit this is.
Thanks for the help!
If you don't feel like downloading the pic. It appears to be a navy blue label centered on the top line is a Z in a circle followed by the entire Ermenegildo Zegna name on the line below centered. Is this the higher end? lower end? mid? any clue?
Would hazard old Church's / Cheaney.
These not-for-BB Peals have what I think is an unusual nail pattern on the heel - like the EG, but in sets of 2 nails rather than 3. I can't find a signature or size anywhere. Does anyone know how to determine the maker, style, or size? Thanks!
Those should be EG. There is another set of numbers stamped inside, probably on the other side from pic #2 that will have sizing info.
I bought an unknown camel topcoat on Ebay before Christmas for next to nothing; a totally speculative purchase. Though admittedly I still don't really know what I'm talking about, I was impressed when it arrived. It looks and feels great. Its origins, however, are a mystery. I wouldn't have given a second thought if the coat had been crap, but I was intrigued. Below is the only label:
All I have found on Google for various combinations of 'Willson', 'tailor', 'tailoring', 'menswear' etc has been a store in Crawley, UK. Can anyone help me out? Is the place in Crawley the one? Is it a defunct brand from elsewhere? Have I missed something obvious on Google?
Thanks! Edward Greens, huh? That's great!
Unfortunately, it's the same number stamped on both sides of both shoes. I can't find any sign of another stamp or handwritten mark, so if it was there, it's worn off. Is that a common nail pattern for EGs?
Those are probably 30+ years old, so there's no telling what nail patterns they used.
I have handled a few EGs from that era. You can usually see an impression, if the sizing info has worn off. It is a 3 or 4 digit number.
Could this be new Cantarelli?
I originally asked about this one in the Thrift thread, but it was suggested that I should try here.
Anybody know this label?
There are no other labels on the jacket, but it seems fairly well made. Somebody suggested it could be Armani, of some sort.
I'm new, but is this thread telling us to spot the difference the official wear vs. bootleg?
No. It is basically telling us who makes suits for who. For example, Corneliani for PRL.
Abla was made by Saintandrews.
This label is current Cantarelli.
Curious on these two. Thanks in advance!
IIRC I think that Trussini is its own maker, but just in case, any information would help.
Separate names with a comma.
