What is the company's name: Finery, or Finery London?Edit

Is the company's name "Finery", or "Finery London"? If the latter, the article should be moved and the text adapted accordingly. Softlavender (talk) 11:26, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

From the Companies Register, it appears that the company itself is called LFG Ltd. It's not unusual for British company names to have no relation to their trading name (a thousand years of history means most of the good names are long since taken); Wikipedia practice has always been to use the WP:COMMONNAME rather than the formal title (thus Sainsbury's rather than "J Sainsbury plc") except in a few cases like BT Group where the full title is necessary to differentiate the internal structure of the company or management changes. From their website, it looks like they use "Finery" and "Finery London" interchangeably in text, but that their logo is just "Finery" so I'd stick with that unless it becomes necessary to disambiguate. ‑ Iridescent 15:29, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Moving "Further Reading" and unwarranted ELs here to Talk pageEdit

These materials may be culled to add content to the article, but they really have no place "as is" in the article, as they currently serve only as random self-promotion/cruft:

  • Omission of some of these sources in the article body (namely, the formatted ones I added to it, diff) may be why it was again nominated for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Finery (company) (2nd nomination). I disagree with the notion that the sources "serve only as random self-promotion/cruft", because they serve to establish topic notability, and can be used to expand the article. Most people don't view talk pages, usually only reading the article pages. As such, I have restored these sources to the article. North America1000 12:55, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
Topic notability is not established by what's visible on the article. The article was AfDed again because the nominator is an inexperienced editor (edit count ~1,000) who failed to do any sort of WP:BEFORE, and who failed to even look to see if the article had been AfDed before.
