    I picked up a lower-priced suit at the Barneys warehouse sale. It's nothing special - half-canvassed, etc. - but the style and fit are terrific. Soft shoulders, decent pick-stitching, etc. Made in Italy.

    I can't figure out who makes it and am curious. Pics of the labels are below. Anyone? Thanks for the help.

    Does anyone have info on the differences in Crockett & Jones shoes, or perhaps lines, with respect to the nail patterns and writing on the sock liner?

    It seems that the commonly-accepted C&J pattern with one row of nails around the side edges, with a single nail in the middle-front; but the three nails by the rubber piece are optional. Compare:

    Similary, the writing on the sock liner sometimes is the hand-written-looking script and sometimes a machine-printed label, such as:

    Are these differences due to hand-grade vs. bench-grade? Or just variations among models, or pure randomness?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    Recently thrifted a pair of burnt orange cords. The maker's tag had been removed, but I was wondering if someone can identify the maker from the size and care tags? Appears to be made in Italy. Thanks.

    From a DAKS London jacket. Made in Italy.
    Seems very nice. Handsewn buttonholes and stuff like that.

    Who is the maker?
