The lining on that Oxxford is the hotness.
I actually have passed up on some Carroll and Co sport coats in perfect condition with identical lining. These ones just said "Hand Tailored for Carroll and Co" no oxxford. Does anyone know what the maker might be on those?
Most of my finds today have some issues, so I'm looking for advice. But we'll start with the pulls that don't have any problems (I guess that's open to debate).
For me (more info on Bagutta? In my limited phone search, it came up as decent) :

^ davesmith, thank you for posting the link to that thread.
I just posted a link in there that I recently found very useful. It's a massive list of types of stains and how to clean them, courtesy of the International Guild of Professional Butlers (obviously):
