    Any ideas on these? The were made for Stuart McGuire if that helps, but they are significantly higher quality than most other SMs I have seen .

    Hi there.

    I just picked up a sportcoat with this label yesterday. I plan to do a little perusing of this thread today to see if I can identify it, but figured I'd post a pic in the event it's obvious.

    Similarly, I'm trying to confirm that this jacket is Barbour (or, if not, figure out who it IS). No brand tag of any kind; only this size tag. Quality is excellent, and zipper and other hardware are very beefy and substantial.

    Thanks in advance.

    There was one like this from about a month ago...I don't think anyone knew.

    The RN is the same on both, when you run the number, it just says SanRemo

    I noticed that as well. I did a lot of research and came up empty. It still is bugging me.

    I have been told that Dressler has made some coats for Burberry in the past 3-4 years. Seems to be true.

    The nail pattern suggests AS, but I'm not sure about the writing...

    Soles are nondescript with Vibram heels that could be replacements, I'm thinking Cheaney?

    Three labels for assistance today. Possibly another later this week when the item comes back from the cleaners. Any help would be appreciated.

    This from a recent USA-made PRL. Different from the older labels. Anyone know who currently/recently makes the PRL USA made stuff, or who used to make it?

    This on a Saks house brand SC. Yes, I know the LP tag is just the fabric. I'm looking at the inner pocket tag. Says "Made in Canada," but the tag seems too nondescript to be anyone interesting, right?

    And this on a John W Nordstrom 100% LP cashmere SC. Is this a new Samuelsohn tag?

    Sak's SC is Jack Victor. Nordstrom's is S.F.I. Apparel Corporation. I couldn't find out much about them from a cursory Google search. I'm sure they own some decent brand.

    These are great tools:

    This is sorta shocking, but is this a brooks brothers counterfeit? If it is, then really?

    The BB label looks right...but old....and it's in the right place. I haven't seen the camel hair label before, not saying it's not legit.... just haven't seen it. Ask the seller if there are any other tags inside the pocket to show you.

    Yeah, I wasn't really interested in the item, just caught it on my daily ebay trolling. The location of that label has nothing in common with the other BB jacket's I have seen.

    I was mainly amazed that someone would possibly go to the trouble of counterfeiting a BB SC (and suit). Seemed odd, but maybe some tailor did collar work that required the removal and replacement of the tag.

    Nah...I suspect it is real.

    Here are two I have currently listed with tags from the same era...in the same location. That's how most BB was back then. I can provide a dozen more in the same location.

    Thanks, what approximate vintage are those tags from?

    Can anyone help with these BB Peals? Heels have been replaced, and the script doesn't look like the CJs I've seen.

    Apologies for the poor shot. Text reads: 975 44DM44R2 036357

    Taking a shoe discussion here from the thrift thread...

    My soles look like this, and is why I was thinking J&M: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=146343553&p=927161123&viewfull=1#post927161123

    The same heel shows up in the last photo of the first post of this thread, but with the snag clip, or whatever it's called: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?104089-Hanover-Shoes-A-History-with-Pics

    I didn't realize the older Hanovers had an oval though. Good to know.

    These are mine. Only text on the footbed is "Genuine Leather Insole" up further in the foot.
