    Looks to be the defunct line. Some say this was the precursor to the RLPL but they both existed during the same period. Do you have additional pics like the label and tags?

    Is this the Brioni tag on a pocket square? [​IMG]

    Gents: Sorry for the double post, but another question for you. Anybody got ideas on this label? No "brand" tag anywhere. [​IMG][​IMG] It came from this:

    Exactly! The interior make label is the same as a Polo one on mine...

    A pair of shoes made in England for Harrod's have the following writing:

    411039 382 S

    I wonder if anyone has a clue about the maker? Would be very grateful.

    Any photos? Sometimes it's the handwriting or the font that gives the clue...

    Not at the moment, unfortunately.

    Thanks though, I'll try to take some soon.

    Anyone know what these are? Trying to fix them up to use but would like to know if worth the investment.

    Based on the composite soles, plasticky leather linings and the interior markings, I'd guess Mason/executive imperials. Made well enough to last a while, but a shoe so cheap, adding new laces doubles the value. That "leather" is true crap. Do everyone a favor, especially yourself, re-donate them and never buy another pair.

    Hahaha, thanks for the advise. Yeah. I spent about 5 bucks and 15 minutes on them, so I'll probably wear them one. Thanks for the heads up...atleast they fit...right? Right? Lol don't answer that, thanks!

    Crockett & Jones for RL I assume but what does RL or CJ call this loafer?
    Looks a bit like the CJ Lincoln but that shoe is a split toe. This isn't and has a double row of stitching at the vamp/toe area.

    Looks like the Marlowe. Tough to tell for sure from your pics, but they're quite possibly shell.

    Thanks for looking.

    Those pics weren't very good at all. I'm posting new pics where it doesn't look like Marlowe or cordovan though...
    Any other possibilities?
