    Skimmed the first few pages and didn't see it, will go back and do a more intensive search.

    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?

    The only place I can find the size is on the inside, where it's pictured... Thank you!

    Anyone recognize this label? It looks like something that I should know, but I can't pin it down.
