    Those aren't close, at least not close enough for me to call it Belvest on eBay. I believe you have a Belvest, but based on the two tags here, I'd keep looking.

    ^^Yes. I was going to chime in...so now I guess I will. I have found a Belvest made G&H piece. A little research, like you've done, will also show you that Belvest makes for G&H.

    Anyone know this one? I picked up two SCs both originally from the same men's store. The other was a Belvest, this one I'm not sure about. I was focusing on the color when I browsed the thread, but no luck....

    Made in Italy.

    OK, gents, as promised, here are a series of Made in England ties. Is there enough info here to ID the maker?
    Keeper says "Lord's" [​IMG][​IMG] Yes, I know Kilgour is a Savile Row shop. I doubt they make their own ties, right? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] No identifying marks #1 [​IMG][​IMG] No identifying marks #2 [​IMG][​IMG]
    And here are three pairs of shoes Catside found for me. They're pretty old and most of the markings have worn. I've pictured them literally the best I can. These are the best shots out of literally dozens more. Black longwings:

    Whiskey longwings

    Whiskey plain fronts

    He thought they might be Nettletons x 2 and 1 pr Hannovers. Anyone have an ID from this sparse info? Thanks in advance.

    I vote no. But I'm the worst at this game.

    I've never seen Armani labels like those.

    Regal was a chain of middle of the market shoe stores in the early 20th century. Similar to Thom McAn. They were eventually bought out by Buster Brown in the 50s and have since disappeared. The boot shown on the heel of the one shoes above was the sign that hung over their doors.

    I can't find anything about this brand at all, long shot probably, but is it related to Rocky Mountain Featherbed? It seems really odd to me that it's a down filled vest, same name, but not same style and made in Korea.

    Bit "old" in my reply, but having several Belvest made products in my possesion, I can confirm (along with everyone else here) that it is a Belvest label.

    They also make for Prada and some older Burberry brands.

    Cheers
