    ^I agree. I have a few Lardini suits, jackets, etc. and the inner tags are the same.

    This is from a pretty inexpensive Loro Piana suit, any ideas who made this?

    ^^My earlier posts muddied this issue I'm afraid. I've seen that exact label in both Canali and Corneliani coats. So either they've taken to using the same labels (something I've never seen before, ever) or there is some sort of association between the two.

    That's definitely a Canali Label. I don't have pics of the Corneliani label handy but I have several of their coats and suits and the labels are different; there is no association AFAIK.

    There is a pic of a Cornaliani label at the top of this thread - unfortunately along with two pics of Ma.Co. labels wrongly identified as Corneliani. The SF editing rule is a shame as the OP should be constantly updated and corrected but I cannot do so.

    I saw a raw silk Canali jacket today with the Canterelli manufacturer tag. It was fused.

    There is always a possibility that some of these manufacturers use the same label maker (I doubt they print their own labels) and end up with similar looking labels. I looked for a pic of a Corneliani label but couldn't find one. Here is a Corneliani for RLBL:

    Here is a Zegna label:

    Isaia for Valentino Tailoring: [​IMG] Corneliani for RL Polo (again): [​IMG] Mysterious fully canvassed Italian suit from Burlington. Excellent Cerruti 1881 fabric and great cut. Does anyone recognize the tag? [​IMG] Really, really crappy suit for "Oliver" by another mysterious manufacturer. I have no idea who made this but I'm posting the tag in order to let you guys know to avoid the manufacturer. The decent Canonico fabric does not nearly make up for the suit's construction.

    Definitely possible but I've never seen it happen before, their have never been more than slight resemblences. The current Canali and Corneliani labels on the other hand are extremely similar, almost exact.

    They perhaps use the same piece of software to make the labels.
