    This is a weird request. I know the maker of this overcoat (Brioni), but I want to know what it's made of or any other information you can glean from this label:

    I'm not sure if KARKL means anything as far as content, but a list has been posted here not long ago with all the material abbreviations. ws/wo is camel hair or mohair and wool blend I believe. Someone else should be able to confirm.

    Sorry, no ideas on the maker, but I own a pair of the same brand, also wholecuts. They're fine shoes, but nothing top of the line I'd say. I believe they're primarily sold in the French market and in some German department stores. Prices range from about €200-400, but I believe they're often on sale. Edit: I just did a completed search on French eBay and it looks like a couple of pairs sold for between €25-35.
    Unfortunately, as above, I don't know the maker of these but I own them as well. I think I tried to search for the maker when I bought them and came up empty handed :confused:
    It's actually cashmere and wool, but no idea on the ratio. Assuming that's what the WS and WO mean. The next letters throw me off as they're cotton and ______. Nothing on the GN. Possibly they're internal codes as opposed to fabric content codes. Are there any other two letter codes on the tags? I believe if this coat is new (assuming it is), then it should have some contents written somewhere visible, by law. Here's the link to the codes: http://reviews.ebay.com/TEXTILE-FIB...-amp-TRANSLATION-CHART?ugid=10000000004399884
