Never seen any Douglas fit in Europe, or even in Asia.

It seems Saville and Drakes are no longer sold (at least in Europe). In Europe, we can now only find :
- Gregory : this is the new "structured" shoulders fit (but less structured than the Anthony fit - which is no longer in production i think - not sure).
- Kent has a very italian fit, shorter than Gregory, natural shoulder with very little padding, and a nice sleeve head. From far my fav.
- Hadley : very soft fit too, shorter than Kent.
- Ralph : Ralph fit...

I must admit RLPL fits are a mess and they change all the time.

Think Anthony in the US, at least I remember seeing tuxedo in it. I have not seen Douglas at the Mansion but have seen it at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Moda Operandi etc

Picked up an unworn pair of Polo Ralph Lauren Chukka boots. Stamped "Made in USA of imported material". Any thoughts on the age and who made them?

random guess, AE? I have seen AE tassel in the past for sure, so that's about the only Made in USA guess I have...
The toe does not look like any AE's I've ever seen... But other than that, yes, it looks like AE.

I know RL had some offerings made by Rancourt. But I also know Rancourt uses Blake construction so I don’t know enough about the technical aspects to say whether a 360 welt is consistent with this.

I was under the impression Rancourt does loafer/boat shoes/moc, I guess they have expanded to oxford/derby/boots as well?

If you go on their website you’ll see the range of shoes and boots they offer. It’s pretty impressive.
