    Maybe it's just me, but I don't think I've ever seen JL do an exposed channel...

    Then any idea who? Or just a waste of my time?

    If your only indicator that these might be JL, is that they look like the heels of Lobbs on page 1...I'd pass for sure. Fact is they don't even remotely resemble any of those Lobb heels.

    Agree with Fishy, never seen Lobbs stitched aloft.

    Are these an identifiable maker, or just some nameless English maker? [​IMG] Came from these by TBNY: [​IMG] EDIT: And here are the heels. No nail pattern, which is why I was asking about the writing. [​IMG]

    Anyone with more expertise familiar with this label by Kiton? The fabric tag for the trousers seems more like Isaia to me, so I have concerns.

    Alfred Sargent or C&J. I can't keep those two straight.

    Who's the maker of this Alan McAfee shoes? Did they make shoes with rubber soles or these were resoled?

    Thanks

    Looks like Alfred Sargent. Anyone disagree? (I won't lie, I'm surprised that TBNY would have been made by AS.)

    I searched the GRILUX S.p.A and it seems to be the holding company for LB, not the maker.

    ^ Can't really help you with those, but they're beautiful. Only Stuart makers I'm familiar with are EG for Stuart's Choice and Grenson for the rest, so I'm leaning that you're correct.

    Any insight on these?

    I've always had these markings as being C&J myself, rightly or wrongly. I've seen them identified as such elsewhere but can't remember where. I used to have a fantastic pair of McAfee-branded spectators with similar markings, and someone who works for C&J themselves thought that I might have been right with the maker...

    Happy to be corrected by anyone who knows better, though!

    I think 90s were the EG era, though can't be sure.

    The first pair are by Cheaney. The second, I agree, are Alden. Not sure on the third.

    Trying to identify this pair of shoes. Looks to have been re-soled but I am not sure. Not even a size listed that I can see. reads 2C2 / 035 926
