I think the tailor's tag is really 1981. (Note the phone number. That was not the way numbers were assigned in 1881.)

The top right looks like a Canadian issue badge. The ball slider is typical of Cdn badges made from the 1980's on. Breadner is a Canadian badge maker. 82 is the year of the contract.

Ok.
The top one appears to have been blanco'd? It looks like the wartime pattern. The second one is a Type 8 in Joyce's reference. Circa 1949.
