Labels and date

Loafers, which are today considered a classic shoe, were extremely popular during the 1960s and perfectly complemented clothes by Mr Fish and Tommy Nutter. Made by Moya Bowler for Sids of Knightsbridge, this pair is a rare example of the designer's work for men. These exclusive shoes were produced in a small run and were clearly much loved by the wearer. [1997]
