Will suede stretch the same way as chromexcel leather? I purchased a pair of suede Quoddy boat shoes online in size 8.5...I fit perfectly in a size 8 in the bluchers, but I found the 8.5 boat shoes in suede on a really good sale, so I figured i'd try them out (I can return them if need be). I can't decide if I should keep them. The sole is very comfortable and I have plenty of room for my toes, but the top of my foot and sides of my feet are very very snug. Can I expect...
  So if my brannock size is 8, I'd order a 7.5 in the trail mocs and the loafers? And an 8 in the new boots?
Can they add a lining after the shoe has already been built and worn a few times?

As you can obivously tell - this makes for an almost impossible off the...
Great! Thanks for the help guys. Your comments make me hopeful to find a pair of C & J!
Sorry to add another sizing question...   I have weird feet. I usually wear a wide in USA made shoes. For laced shoes (when the length is perfect) I need wide for the toe area, but then a lot of times they kinda bow out at the sides of my feet, which is usually solved by lacing up tighter. Wide in loafers usually fit me pretty well.   My first foray into English shoes - will I be able to fit in C&J? I sure hope so, because I love how they look! Is it a situation...
There is a cobbler down the street from my office. maybe i'll stop there at lunch for some tongue pads. thanks!
