    Yes a label is of utmost importance to show. Using the method you describe above is helpful in some rare cases, but except in rare cases one should never claim a garment is made by a specific designer if there is no label to back this up. One reason is that many designers were copied a great deal, and often the copies were very very good (and often not). So simply having certain attributes of a certain designer is not enough to make a claim.

    I just realized this thread is 5 years old......sorry.

    Also, the claim made by the above guest is not true of most vintage, just the garments made after say, the 1970s or later. Many vintage garments made before that time will not have information on the materials used. Some do, some do not.
