    I purchased a vintage long DB 100% llama coat, made in Italy, with what appears to be a manufacturer's silk label which reads, "SSSSSSSSSS." Does anyone recognize this label? [​IMG]

    I recall a maker called Sasson.

    They might have used the "SSSSSS" label.

    I'm not sure if they were Italian or if they would have made a Llama coat.

    Is it a blck tag with white "S"s? If so, could it be a Syms label?

    I've seen this label, and for some reason associate it with Nino Cerruti. But I have no idea why and am probably way off base.

    I've seen it but I always thought it was "small" is that the case?

    No, it's a size 42. The label is greyish with white letters. It doesn't appear to be a Syms label either.
