Bruce Fields (Rue de Richelieu, 2 mins walk from Carmina) for men’s shirts Made in France and suits from decent fabrics such as VBC.   Corthay (Rue Volney, 2 mins walk from Charvet) for superlative shoes but get your wallet ready.   Finsbury Shoes is also decent for affordable shoes.   JM Legazel (either Printemps/Lafayette) for shoes and leather goods with crazy customised patina, and less waiting time than Septieme Largeur.  Altan Bottier also has colourful...
If you get a chance to pop over to Sydney, Kazuna can MTM the near exact same style of shoe for you.
The split toe is gorgeous. Live fit pics when you can, please.
Sizing a bit tricky. I am between UK 7.5 and UK 8, and my correct size is 7 for this shoe. At size 7, the length allowance for the toes in the toe box is only a few mm. Width is normal, instep slightly high.
Finsbury Epsom. Leather from Tannery de Puy, English Dainite Soles. 
 Coming from the school of "hard to fit", I totally understand your frustration.

That needs to be unlearned. Tight, as other posters have pointed out, is correct. For most lay people (that means 99% of shoe buyers), they will never buy a correct fitting shoe because it will feel too tight. Perhaps you might watch out for these indicators: 1....
Surprisingly versatile pair of shoes
