    Hard to say, really. Looks like a sweet coat though.

    If it's recent, it could be Caruso.

    Anybody recognize this tag? It's from a Hermes suit.

    This one doesn't look like it has an open weave. I think it might fit into the mock grenadine category.

    Thanks, I am sure the other is a grenadine but this one is not.

    I realize this photo is not a lot to go on, but someone will recognize the writing. This partial name is on the insole of a pair of exotic leather shoes, hand made in Italy, and done to an extremely high standard based on features such as a bevelled waist. The last three letters appear to be "nni" and so I thought "Magnanni" but their exotics, maybe all of their shoes, are made in Spain and these are clearly made in Italy. Also, the lettering is gold. I guess I should add that I am certain I have seen this before, but just cannot put my finger on it! Any help?

    Nevermind. Coat is going back from whence it came.

    How come? Did you find out the maker and decided it wasn't worth the money?

    It is in way rougher condition than the pictures or description led on. It's a felted wool/cashmere and all the felting had worn off at the seams and wear points and you could see the weave underneath.

    I just thrifted (among other things I plan to ask about on this thread soon) a Faconnable with the same tag. The Cantarelli one I bought a while back had this label, though:

    I don't have access to my Caruso for Dunhill right now, but I will check vs that tag in the AM. But assuming it's no match, I think we're back to square one.

    I found these wholecuts today, marked as John Mac Gray. This is pre cleaning, im pretty sure they will clean up nicely. Checked out the nail pattern thread and im pretty sure they are made by Sutor Mantalessi. Could you guys confirm this? :)

    Made for Louis Boston. Are these Lattanzi?


    Edit; Answering my own question, apparently yes. Zintala s.r.l. is the name of the company, lattanzi is name of the shoe. One more brand checked off my list.

    Cross post from thrift thread. This should be an interesting challenge for you guys. Googling was no success for me.

    Anyone know who made these? They were resoled and have new heels, so that changes things. They are well worn inside and the heelpad shows nothing. All I can glean from the size is 12 B/D and by combining what I can see from each shoe, I think the numbers "1112".
