That sportcoat seems like a niche item. If it was me, I'd chance it and see if it makes it to the after Christmas sale.
I don't think you can go wrong with the south wick or italian made sportscoats in terms of construction or quality. The sticking point many people have is the pricing relative to other options.
I noticed this as well. Tipo is cut very close to my body. I am a bit borderline. Sleeves are a bit tight. Chest is okay, lapels don't bow.This might be a rookie question, but can the sleeves be let out width wise?If not, might be time to cut some of the bulk gained from weight training or migrate and try Lorenzo cut.
Not sure if you are feeling the brogue ing or really the toe cap stiffener. I had a pair of rain wingtips that dug into the top of my toes initially, but there is a chance that it will subside as your foot sinks and the sole itself starts to gain flex. Carmina uses pretty stiff bark soles.
Long story short, it bothers me to a lesser degree. If I strongly flex it will still dig in but it's no longer an issue, but YMMV.
