Anyone know the maker? No other markings, insoles missing. They look similar to a lot of Yuketen models but don't have that criss-cross signature stitch they do their mocs. Maybe Rancourt? But most I've seen have markings on the inside of the quarters, and these only have the tongue markings. Vibram sole.
Figured it out, it's Maine Moccasin, who are now out of business:

Pretty wild cause these are in mint condition they must have been just sitting in someone's closet for a while.

Found this the other day and I've been researching quite a bit but I'm not 100% sure about it. What do people think?

It's definitely puffy and properly filled with down. Has the 700 embroidered on sleeve and grosgrain glove? straps with snap buttons.

Inner stow pocket label and grosgrain loop.

Embroidery is pretty good, that wrinkly wobblyness is from the fabric. In a lot of the fakes I see online they never seem to get this right.

Do counterfeits typically go to the lengths to add a little zipper garage flap inside the pocket flap?

Someone removed the elastic things and cut the grosgrain tabs off... dunno why.. But they're there and well stitched.

Inside of collar has a fold out hood with velcro closure.

1-17.JPG

Back of zipper pull looks pretty smooth and clean.

Inside has DL# tag and care tag with model # and season of S06.

Real but just older? Or totally fake?

For me I’d be incline to say it’s real. Logo stitching is clean

Pulled my old Blue Nuptse out to compare and many of the construction details are the same..

One thing I wasn't sure about was these little curved ends ^ going into the zipper. The newer Nuptses don't have that - straight seams into the zipper.

While researching I stumbled onto this photo of this actor bloak at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004:

And oh look who's jacket is not only the same color and zipper pull, but has curved ends haha.

I don’t understand why this pocket is so small.
