If it isn't the Alvie, then you should update the RTW section of your website, which says it is the Alvie.

The Abingdon?

Or do you mean something more generic like "Venetian loafer"?

WellI don't know the answer but I have a relevant question. I've seen a similar pair with chisel toe and same elastic at instep bearing the numbers 59/88 are these Fosters last numbers?
Also bears the title Ipeland or is it Ireland?
And size 11F
Any ideas?

Gents,

 

The question was about the style not the model name, sorry for the confusion. Also, this is an old bespoke pair so not rtw.

labravajazz,

 

I've asked the guys about this shoe and it appears to be an old one (not that helpful I know). We'll do a bit more digging about the last and get back to you by PM if that's okay. I'm not sure how much information I will be able to find out between now and the auction ending though. If you need any more help send me a PM.

Gents,

 

We realise that our question yesterday was a little unfair. The shoe we asked you about is called a 'Front Sprung Monk' by Terry Moore.

 

 

We'll come up with a better question shortly.

Did Mr. Terry Moore name that? FSM should be the official name for those type of front elastic loafers smile.gif

Probably deserved a pair of those fancy socks (rather than a jar of polish) for someone who got that right!

nutcracker,

 

We agree, a pair of shoes even! All the shoemakers had different names for differing shoe styles, so Terry Moore would call a Derby a 'Blucher', a name we associate with the States rather than the UK. Next time I see him I'll see if I can get more information and perhaps some idea of the origins of these terms.

I know you've PM'd him, but I'm betting that's a bespoke shoe from the internal markings (and from the style). Very happy to be proved wrong.
