    Sorry for the double post. Does anyone have a pic of an older Lubiam tag? The pics earlier in the thread have disappeared. Based on an ebay search that showed a newer Lubiam tag, I'm wondering if this is Lubiam.

    They are definitely worth £60. They will easily sell for £250 on eBay.

    £250 sounds quite high for a pair of Loakes...

    They are Jubilees, the most exclusive Loakes around.

    Would love a little help with this one. They seem well made, and they look (design wise) almost exactly like a pair of Grenson for Paul Stuart shoes I handled....English made, Dainite soles. Have included the serial numbers pic as that's all that shows (whatever writing there was in the footbed has completely worn off). Thanks in advance!

    My mind has gone blank. I believe they are either Loake of Cheaney. It is whoever makes Cole Hann's english shoes.

    Snooping through my dad's closet. Curious if anyone here can identify the maker: Neiman Marcus Made in Italy cashmere overcoat.

    Dudes.

    I have a handful of ties Made in England. Couple of house brands (Barney's, e.g., ) No other markings or distinguishing features. Is it even worth posting pics of the material tag, or is it just a futile effort trying to ID the maker?

    Material tag would help.

    On a similar note, anyone know who makes the ties for Lands' End? They always seem to be of better than average quality, and have a nice feel and weight.

    OK, thanks. I just didn't want to waste anyone's time if folks said "no there are way too many; it's impossible to tell." I will post pics in the next day or so.
