    Stupid Buyer? That's all I can come up with. I have stolen shoes from that seller before. That's crazy! $300-$400 is what I would expect from those shoes.

    I found these suede oxfords today. The heels have been replaced, but they are made in the USA for Faconnable. I'm thinking maybe Alden? I know they made some shoes for Faconnable. But I really have no idea.

    Anyone know the maker of these? Found on a pair of trousers with a lot of handwork.

    I did look through the first through pages but couldn't find a match.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Can someone help with the maker of this Saks Fifth Ave branded suit. Jacket tag was cut out so just the pants tag to go on. Thanks.

    x-post from "ASK A QUESTION, GET AN ANSWER..." which directed me here...:

    Seeking help interpreting the "composition" section of the tag of a battistoni sport coat I just picked up - google has been surprisingly unhelpful with abbreviations. To me it reads "35%COT.35%LANA 25%ANG 5%CASH60". Are those (in order): cotton, wool, angora, cashmere? What is the significance of "60" at the end?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps it is "CASHGO" as in cashmere goat. Your interpretation otherwise is correct.

    That must be very old Etro. If I had to guess, I'd say old Lardini (I think they used to make Etro; now to Boglioli).

    Hey! I found these Carroll & Co. Suede captoes today, made in England. They are made by Crockett and Jones, correct? The "248" inside seems to imply that.

    Apparently they could also be Grenson, EG, or even John Lobb.

    ^they look like C&J to me. Is the size stamped on the footbed of the shoe, over a smaller number which would indicate the width?
