    99.99% sure, but still want to check... EG, right????


    EDIT: I DUN GOOF'D. C&J Handgrade. Huzzah!

    The "Polo" is odd- I think these shoes are from the era of the blue script RL label, all I can think of. The heels and soles are either originals or factory recrafts, they're flawless.

    Bought these on eBay thinking I was getting C&Js- the pictures sucked. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box! :D

    Haven't found any Attolini tag, I have two other LBCS by Attolini and this has a different silhouette.

    I've seen the red label before and found a St Andrews tag inside.

    This is the label I have on my MTM Huntsman.

    Perhaps, then, the top label is bespoke, the second OTR, and the third MTM? The red label with St Andrews tag I saw certainly looked like a MTM piece.

    Are these anything, or just some random Italian maker? On Nordstrom tassel loafers. I could have sworn I recognized the heel, and the "handcrafted" got me excited, but I couldn't find anything in the thread. Nails highlighted in red.
