    Good shout, cheers!

    Any idea about these? Found them for a tenner in a vintage shop and initially thought Sanders, but the markings don't seem quite right. Can just about make out "Shoes For Men" on the lower part of the sock liner.

    Looking for a little help on this. I can't make out the logo, but here is a rough sketch of it. Note the horse is actually more of a 3/4 view.

    These are the shoes.

    Sartoria Partenopea? Only label on the inside of the jacket says Cuzzen's, which I believe is a store in Vegas. Thanks in advance.

    I realize this may be a very long stretch, but I figured I'd post anyway. I found this Made in Italy jacket today at Salvation Army, 100% wool with rayon lining, patch pockets on the bottom, and gold colored metal buttons (but not gold). Now, I don't know much of anything about suits, but from what I can tell doing a pinch test (which who knows how accurate that is with me doing it as I'm still not completely certain how to tell) it appears to be fully canvased.

    The only tags are these 2, any help? I suppose it doesn't matter much in the long run, as it fits me and I'll most likely keep it and get it tailored, but it would be cool to learn something.

    Wait, really? How could you possibly know that? If you aren't just making a joke, that's pretty cool.

    Welp, that rules. Thanks for the help, I'll post some full photos in the thrifting thread once I put some batteries in my camera.

    Barrie booters, now defunct CT shoe store used Cheaneys and Church's for store brand but I think these are Alden. No country marking which is a first with a Barrie shoe for me. I am still in grief for that store. What say you?

    Any idea who makes the Made in Italy shoes for Hickey Freeman?

    You are possibly the first person who did a sketch in this manner. Thanks.

    Perhaps you should just trace inside the shoe with the pen?

    Yeah, I tried that, I even detached the foot bed to do the old school crayon transfer thing. No luck.

    However I think I have now determined the second word to be "Classic"
