Wouldn't it be nice to have a thread about which producers are doing what for which brands? For example who makes RLBL suits etc. Lets talk about the recent seasons... I will add all contributions to the OP.

I'll start adding what I know:

Zilli <- Pal Zileri Sartoriale
Lanvin <- Caruso
Balenciaga (some of them) <- Caruso
Gianfranco Ferre (mainline) <- Caruso
Tom Ford <- Zegna
YSL Rive Gauche <- Zegna
Ferragamo <- Cantarelli
Faconnable <- Cantarelli and Boglioli
Gucci <- Zegna
Ralph Lauren Polo <- Corneliani
Ralph Lauren Black Label <- Caruso
Ralph Lauren Purple Label <- Caruso and St Andrews
Valentino Tailoring <- Isaia
Michael Bastian <- Cucinelli
Bamford and Sons <- Caruso
Adriano and Sons <- Isaia and Sartoria(Kiton)

I thought there was a thread that already does this. However, if I am mistaken, then this is a great idea.

English is my third language and I'm aware that my written English is not flawless. Thanks for correcting it in a kind way.

We had this thread back before the great server crash of '06; I still have a copy of some of the stuff posted at that time and will copy below. As such, some of these may be (probably are) out of date or incorrect. As well, keep in mind that designers and such switch licensees and makers ALL the time, so these probably should be updated every season. Thus, it's entirely possible we'll have LOTS of contradictory information, but still correct (depending on season). Also, designers use DIFFERENT licensees for different things (suits, shoes, RTW, accessories having 4 different licensees, for example)

Attolini makes suits for Sartoria Partenopea? I thought they did it themselves?

I have seen some Adriano and Sons made by Attolini (!!)

Barbera Sartoriale has of late had some Sartoria Partenopea but also had some stuff done by St. Andrews and Attolini in the past.

Isaia made Valentino typically retails under the label &quot;Valentino Tailoring&quot;

^Nobody makes them anymore, as Valentino Roma no longer actually exists.

Who made them before... I'm not sure. Valentino Roma was the 2nd or "diffusion" line for Valentino, sort of like Armani Collezioni.

Didn't Valentino used to own a large part of Boss?
