    LOL Wes, at this rate you'll figure out what they are sometime in 2013. I feel your pain though buddy. BTW are the shoes badass or what?

    I hear this is the place for label help! Been a lurker for awhile on the forum but registered not very long ago.

    I tried doing my own research but I am a complete failure. I know what I really would like this label to mean, but just am not sure it means what it means.

    Here are the only two labels on the sportcoat. Obviously the Jack Taylor one means it was tailor and purchased from "the" Jack Taylor, right? That "K" certainly looks like a famous K, but doesn't look like any of the labels I have seen.

    Some details on the coat if it helps: Houndstooth, one button, working cuffs, patch pockets, and extremely soft.

    That is what I was hoping for, as that K is so distinctively similar, but is it strange to not see the standard Kiton tag inside the jacket?

    Yeah, the K and the fact that the rest of the information matches (taglia, drop, etc.). It's possible that the Kiton tag was removed to be replaced with the Jack Taylor tag. That would be odd, as Kiton usually specifies which store a jacket was made, but I suppose it is a possibility.

    Looking for some info on these shoes.

    I believe they are custom, made in Italy. They have Italian leather marks. Other than that they have double stitched soles with a storm welt, the soles are channeled, 1/3 rubber heel with a nail pattern of 3 nails outer-heel 4 nails inner-heel, no nails in the center that I can identify. The inside says "Espressamente per Harrison" in ink and that is all I have.

    Can anyone ID the maker for these? I've skimmed through the thread based on what I could think of to search for, and half the pictures that turned up in my searches were dead links!

    Really... no one? Someone help me out here [​IMG]

    I've never seen a pair with the round circle in the heel. Figured that was a dead giveaway??

    I've actully seen some nettletons with the round cleat, but I don't think that's what you have there.

    Hello all,
    I need some help identifying this BROOKS BROTHERS Sport Coat.
    It is "Made in Italy", Composed of 85% Wool and 15% Cashmere with a Glen Plaid pattern.

    Anyway, I guess what I want to know is what Brooks Brother's line this is from....and also, who makes their "Made in Italy" stuff...
    Thanks in advance!
