Here's an interesting pair of shell cordo loafers in 9.5D. They are listed as "Hanover" (as though that's the maker), but I wonder whether that might be the model name, since the name L.B. Sheppard appears inside, as part of the designation "L.B. Sheppard Signatures". There was a shoe retailing firm in Vancouver (which started up in 1931) by the name of Sheppard's Shoes that closed down as a brick & mortar store many years ago, but continues as Sheppard's Direct, a virtual operation, in which shoes (Alden, Crockett & Jones, and E. Testoni) are brought in after a local fitting. I'm wondering whether these shoes are from a long-ago era in which Sheppard's Shoes might have had some shoes made up to be branded by themselves. (Of course, the L.B. Sheppard may refer to a completely different company, rather than an early name for Sheppard's Shoes.) I strongly suspect that the shoes were made by Alden, particularly given the fractional width designation (B/D here) that Alden uses, along with other details of the shoes. They appear to be in excellent condition with not a great deal of wear. They also appear to be high-quality shoes; I suspect that the apron skin-stitching may be hand-done.
