I was only aware of RLPL being produced by Canterelli or Saint Andrews, but the below are right the tag looks like a Caruso.

Thank you all for your help so far, it is very much appreciated! If that's a Caruso label ( and I believe you that it is) then the 3rd pic under Corneliani in this thread http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...35&postcount=1 is probably also a Caruso too, not a Corneliani - what do you think? In case it is made by Caruso, the guide should be corrected. Moreover, the label posted under "Zegna"(made for Dunhill) looks like it was made by Caruso as well.

^^ Thats quite interesting. I have a RLPL blazer with the same tag, and the material of your coat leads me to believe it is a blazer as well. I wonder if Caruso also a contract to do RLPL odd coats? Or at least I wasn't familiar with Caruso doing anything more than RLBL for Ralphy.

How odd. The label is the same as Black Label, which is Caruso... but I wasn't aware Caruso made for RLPL. Usually RLPL is either St Andrews or Cantarelli. Maybe now the Caruso is doing stuff for RL Black, he's also using them for a few select RL pieces?

It is also the same tag that is found in Adriano and Sons.
I have quite a bit of Caruso, there is no doubt that is what it is.
Good for you, Caruso is bad ass.
I can not speak to the level they make RL Black to, but the RC and A&S brands are very very high quality.

The Corneliani for Polo caption refers to the pic above. The Dunhill tag (to be confirmed) is Caruso.
