There are some shoemakers which do not use a toe puff which goes the entire length of the toe cap.  Vass for instance is one of them. When they don't you'll see creasing such as this.
The old style cotton diapers work wonders if you ask me. I've been using them for a couple of decades now.
Shhh My wife might hear you.  At this point I have her convinced that they give them away free as door prizes.
​I would say 1/2 is probably Edward Green. I would devote a special percentage to John Lobb. I think a small portion would have to be St Crispins. Then there would about a third for a number of brands not considered Top Tier but which I just tend to prefer. Oh, did I mention the third for brands I have yet to try? Oh, and I am thinking its about time to try something bespoke.  Oops, I think I need a bigger pie. LOL
That's one third of my ultimate dream closet.
That is for certain.
Unfortunately I don't own one yet either, however I didn't think that necessarily precluded me from being able to needle you about it just a bit. LOL I do own a Cherry Moore, although I know that's just not quite the same thing.
OMG, Roger doesn't have Vintage Cherry????
Leather does stretch width wise and your foot will settle a bit in the footbed as you break in your shoes giving you more space.. A good portion of my shoes start off a bit snug which in the overall scheme of things is good and I don't have any issues. However there's a difference between snug and too tight as this can painful. If they are too tight then in the normal course of breaking them they wont stretch to the point where it will be a good fit. If its only slightly...
Very nice, Congrats!!!
