    The Alfred Sargents differ in that the soles have closed channels and a bevelled / fiddleback waist.

    time to get your eyes checked - the tags don't even come close to matching.

    i see two big differences:
    1) the typeface is different
    2) the label space format is different - look at where the "made in italy" sections are located.

    Every label on the tag is the same though, in order. "cliente, ordene, riga, taglia, serie, variante, modello" and on and on. the numbers are also in the same formula. I didn't see any other tags even close to looking the same. But if you know then i believe you, thanks.

    They are not identical, but are similar enough that I would say it is most likely a Cantarelli label.

    So, who is this? In an earlier thread, I was told Zegna. If so, this is different than Zegna's self-labeled goods.

    Well, Ed has said on several occasions that is a Zegna label. I've personally never seen a label like that in a Zegna garment, but that doesn't mean such a thing does not exist. It is worth noting however that it bears close resemblance to the label in a Caruso jacket I recently sold. Unfortunately I forgot to photograph the Caruso label before I shipped it out so I cannot directly compare.

    This one is made in Japan. My local Off Fifth carries bunch at any given day. They are either fused or half canvassed (don't remember exactly). For sure this one is not made by Zegna. Don't know who made it though.

    Aha, somehow missed the Japan in the listing and the picture. Okay, how about this then. Similar label, marked Made in Italy. [​IMG]

    Well, in the Dunhill jackets/suits I still believe it is Zegna although it is not like any other Zegna label and is closer to Corneliani's labels. I don't work at Dunhill or Zegna, so I could be wrong [​IMG]

    Just bought a pair of brown suede semi brogue Cleverley RTWs. I was told that a number of companies and individuals make shoes for the RTW range but the Clevelerley staff declined to say which company in particular makes my shoe. Any ideas from the pictures? I note that the nail pattern is different from that shown at the start of the thread for c&js. In any case a nice looking shoe- the first formal shoes I have bought for a while.

    I would guess Grenson masterpiece, but I'd want to check against a pair of mine.

    Any more input on the jacket above?
