    I believe these are Cheaney from my research. Can anyone confirm? Sole also says "Custom Grade"

    Also, can someone make sense of the interior writing and find me a size? It looks like this:

    563
    503F 175/B
    Code No. 91​

    Much appreciated.

    Spamming this thread is not going to help. People here can read. Someone will answer when they know what these are.

    Just chill out, dude!!!!!!!

    I recently picked up a RLBL suit off of B&S, and the fit/tag is completely different from the Caruso fit/tag I'm used to. To me it looks like a Cantarell tag, but I thought I'd ask. I didn't know RLBL changed makers.

    Hello!

    Could anyone please identify the maker of an Italian made Brooks Brothers suit I have? It only has this tag in the pocket, "Made in Italy" printed on the collar loop, and a blue square "Brooks Brothers, Established 1818" label on the left breast pocket.

    Thanks beforehand for any help on this!

    this is the inner marking of a Mezlan shoe
    anyone know whether this is a regular D width shoe or an E width "wide" shoe?

    I believe they do not mark widths.
