There is a discrete controversy brewing about the longstanding SF allegation that the tag below idicates that it is made by ATTOLINI. The tag is found on Luciano Barbera Sartoriale, which many claim was made by Attolini. This claim is now being called into question. Would someone please lay the controversy to rest by posting definitive photographic proof connecting the label to Attolini ? Thanks

Man there are so many surprising labels I have come across....
Kiton shirts for Oxford would be one (the yellow on black that says made in Italy-made obvious by the amount of hand work)
Oxxford for Paul Stuart
Isaia For Paul Stuart
Borrelli for Arny's paris (shirts)
Borgioli for Certo
Loro Piana for Michael Bastian


Funny, almost every desirable label out there makes for other labels. It pays to know your labels, nail patterns, shirt labels, etc.
Ill leave it at that.

I got the below jacket today. At first I thought it was Attolini bassed on all the stitching on the lapels and shoulder, but realizing it looks an awful lot like the Sartoria Partenopea label someone posted. Any thoughts?

It seems very similar to the SP label though- why you so confident it's not a major maker?

I think he meant AFAIK, as far as I know.

I beleive I've seen it before. I'll post a pic if I can confirm.

Being sold at Tincati, it's already an assurance of topgrade quality.
