    My local NM started to carry Brioni lace-ups ($1200-ish), and I can tell you they ain't made by SL without so much as looking @ the price tag.
    In unrelated news, Sutor dumped Borrelli (not the other way around) - so they went with Peluso.
    As overall quality went into shithouse, Borrrelli dumped them and switched to Alexander.
    Loads better product than Peluso.
    Figure about $850-plus for a pair of handsome, penny loafers in chestnut.


    P.S. I've been informed that Sutor is more or less done producing shoes for private labels.

    BB has a tobacoo suede captoe model that's more or less a steady item in their Peal line-up.
    It's made by A&S as well as C&J. I kid you not.
    The A&S one is $30 more dear. Though you can hardly tell the two apart.
    Here's that shoe which looks much better in person.

    Mostly AS, and apparently @shipton france the C&J models are far and few between.

    G&G for Paul Stuart Ltd. Ed. and a handful of RLPL models

    Hermes now stocks a handful of models made by JLP, the majority of Hermes mens shoes are still made by an unknown Italian maker with much lower quality than JLP.

    Any other updates?

    You will not find any JLP at Hermes unless they are closeout items.

    I heard the RL 'Made in Italy' come from Silvano Sasetti

    http://www.sassettisilvano.it/ - (If you can cope with the sound.)

    Whether this applies to all of the collection(s) or only certain styles, I wouldn't know

    Brilliant! It's a website for a shoe manufacturer with no shoes on it. Combo that with an irritating flash doohickey and the word contact misspelled for a real winner. Clearly they're shoemakers and not web designers.

    So these New & Lingwood shoes are them made by C&J?
    If so are they on a N&L or C&J last?

    Doesn't look like C&J to me. Are they from the "Eton Collection"? If they are it will say so on the sock.

    Care to post a pic of the soles? The "Capital" last is a Loake last so it likely could be by them.

    A lot of N&L lately is being made by Grenson - who also adopted that 3 nail EG pattern recently.

    After browsing the Grenson and Loake sites I think I have found the match at Loake http://www.loake.co.uk/strand.html, everything except the cut of the rubber on the heel and the nails match very well.

    Thanks for the help!

    Definitely Loake, fonts , last, and broguering design are visibly Loake.

    The shoe seems to be a rebranded Loake Strand, maybe made to higher standards.
