    Looks like Hoare & Tautz (E. Tautz & Sons and J Hoare & Co.) were on Conduit St when they were absorbed by N&S around 1968. They may have kept the space for them to work out of.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norton_&_Sons

    This guide book lists N&S as having a location at 44 Conduit when it was written, though I can only find the original publication date of 1915 and that it is the seventeenth edition.

    Just picked this pocket square up from the 'bay, but didn't read the description. I thought I was getting a Drake's pocket square, but it turns out it was a Burberry by Drake's pocket square according to the seller.

    Can anyone confirm that this is in fact a Drake's pocket square? I know his initials are Michael Drake, but don't know if this is what the label is supposed to look like. (First possible Drake pocket square)

    I picked up this Prada jacket at a thrift store the other day. Can anyone help me with the maker? The tag doesn't look familiar, although I read Belvest and Cantarelli have made for Prada.
