Thanks. Not worried. Interested.Judging by the style and labels, it is most likely very old LP cloth. Everyone from Brooks Bros to J. Crew uses LP fabrics, so they make it at various price points / quality levels. (Obviously a J. Crew sweater for $100 is not going to be the same as something LP sells themselves for $1000.) Perfectly decent for $100. I wouldn't worry about it.
I have been told that Loro Piana did not make men's clothes prior to 1999 and that is somewhat in support of this view (although 100 % certainty is enough for me). The same person suggested it was made by an Italian factory specialising in clothes for brands and shops.With 10000% certainty, that coat was not made by Loro Piana and just is Loro Piana cloth.
Could be - but that factory has nothing to do with Loro Piana. They bought the fabric from Loro Piana, they included their labels with the fabric. Whoever built the jacket put that tag on it to show that it was made of good cloth.I have been told that Loro Piana did not make men's clothes prior to 1999 and that is somewhat in support of this view (although 100 % certainty is enough for me).
