    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Yeah, but this is the older "Burberrys' label with the 1990s era ACTWU tag. That should be HF territory for sure. Strange.

    If you wanted any more confirmation, these are from a Brioni SC I had on eBay a while ago:

    Hey guys, I know if a garment is made in US, I'll look up the RN in the US database and similar goes for CA that are made in Canada. What about the European counter part? Where's their database so I don't have to memorize the makers' tag.

    Thanks!

    Help in IDing a label inside an ivory silk tuxedo jacket please guys.

    The black label appears to say Nicola Blair but I can find absolutely no reference to a designer of that name. The shop (Vincci) was in Jermyn Street, London and seemed to cater for rich middle-eastern playboys. Much of their stuff was Kiton for Vincci etc. I have 3 x Kiton-made sports coats and the Vincci reference number starts with KITxxxxxxx, this one starts with BRIxxxxxx

    The composition label was inside the right inside pocket, can anyone identify the manufacturer from this label please? I've been through the first 20 pages and the last 20 pages, please don't tell me I'll have to trawl through the middle 50.

    It's Europe, we don't have a database. To even consider one would take longer in committee than the EU has been in existence

    I picked these up off of ebay about 5 years ago for a song, I have yet to figure out who they are by. I have highlighted the nails in red to hopefully help out if anyone can give me a clue. Thanks!

    Edit BTW there is nothing legible on the inside except on the tongue which reads 00 2320 9 1/2

    I picked up this 100% Cashmere db blazer for $15 a couple of days back since it fits nicely and the fabric rocks.
    However, it doesn't have much inside in terms of identifying the maker. It has tags from a rather good store in it, though, so I called them. To the knowledge of the guy working there now, it should be at least 20 years old. He was talking about it possibly being Chester Barrie, but I don't think the tags quite make sense.

    Can you guys help out?

    (And thanks to Brianpore for pointing me here).

    The recent Church's discussion has been dominated by the lack of quality leathers they use during production (I'm assuming this applies to their patent leather as well).

    Why not go for C&J?

    I don;t think they have it in stock. They have a very limited selection for immediate dispatch.

    Price wise, the Loakes are a good bet. They're going to be 30% off soon (tomorrow or Friday?). So total = $250

    I have a pair of BB Loakes, and they hold up well.

    This tag seems familiar to me but I can't quite place it. This suit was made for a store called Cairns in Paris.

    Any guesses?

    Thanks.
