    What is the difference between a Turbull & Asser shirt with this label [​IMG] and one with this label [​IMG] Age? If so, which one is newer? Quality? Are there different lines of T&A? Are they both authentic??

    I believe that the one with stamped numbers is either a MTM or bespoke shirt. The other label at first glance looks like their standard RTW one.

    Yeah -- the bottom label is what they use for their bespoke (and possibly made to order) shirts. Block print, stamping.

    The bottom one is the bespoke one. 4786 that is stamped on it is the customer's id number. If your shirt design changes, you get a new number. When I got a slimmer fitting shirt, I got a new number.

    The bottom label is for bespoke. Note that it has no sizing information.
