    If you don't feel like downloading the pic. It appears to be a navy blue label centered on the top line is a Z in a circle followed by the entire Ermenegildo Zegna name on the line below centered. Is this the higher end? lower end? mid? any clue?




    I don't know if you got your answer but I'm pretty sure that's their main line. Does it say "Made in Italy" or "Switzerland"? I said mid quality. Z Zegna will say "Z Zegna" on it.

    Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone could help my figure out whether this jacket is genuine or not. I bought it relatively cheaply a while ago and for what I payed I'm guessing it's not. These are all the labels I could find on it, thanks for your time.

    I now remember what was distictive. It's not the triangles, but the combination of the triangles and dots or dashes. The Cheaney's I'm familiar with have dots. The Grensons I now have in front of me have lines. (Though some others have the triangles made up of lines rather than solid, which is where my head went.) They also have scripts almost identical to yours, though black text on a tan insole.

    STYLE 608-5336 11/D
    4157 — 12-84

    I'll be posting pics in the thrift thread tomorrow. I can put them in here as well, if you think they might be useful. The heel is all black rubber with the red "GRENSON" in the middle, but the sole is similar to yours, as far as I can make it out.

    I have a Cashmere Sport Coat and it has the exact same tags. As far as who makes it for them? I have no clue.

    Does anyone have a clue as to the maker of these shoes? The only marking is this "B" They are from approximately the 1950's or 40's.

    Hello all,

    Short time stalker, first time posting.
    I have an enigma. I have a pair of Johnston and Murphy Northamptons. Made in Northampton, England. Yep...not the US, Mexico, Italy, or where ever else they make them now.

    Anyone know anything about these shoes. Roughly when J&M experimented with English shoe makers? Which shoe maker they may have contracted?
