So I "inherited" (i.e. took) a pair of shoes from my father, which were made bespoke in London c. 1980. All that is legible on the inside is "London... Alan W... Made in England." The photos are taken with a laptop camera, but I'm afraid that more detailed photos wouldn't have yielded more information. The heel has clearly been replaced.

I'm sorry if this has been said before, but I think the front balance is slightly short. In the first photo it looks like the jacket is pulling upwards (perhaps the result of a tight chest, as someone mentioned). Also, there are quite a few folds in the...
