Turnbull & Asser -- Made in Italy?

I just received a T&A Sea Island shirt that I bought on Ebay. The label is different from the usual label -- it looks like the label I've seen before for bespoke T&A. However, there's a separate label that has 17/43 and "Made in Italy." My other 3 T&A shirts all say "Made in England." It's not fake I don't think, as the fabric is superfine, the buttons MOP, it's got the gusset hexagons, etc. It all adds up except for the Made in Italy part. Anyone know about this?

The New York T&A store carried a line of Lorenzini-made shirts for a while, ending a year or two ago. Better-made than the ones made in Britain, if you ask me, but they look like Lorenzini shirts, not T&A shirts.

This is correct; as well they featured fused collars and cuffs. Very anti-T&A if you ask me...

An Italian T&A.

For Shame.
