They are lovely shoes, but where you can wear them? For a screening of The Wizard of Oz?

Is this another case of "The Fallen Idol"?
I had a suit made from Schofield cloth about 12 years ago at Brooks Brothers. I recall that it was good cloth and that it wore well. I discarded it a few years ago. I do not recall seeing the Schofield name recently.
Get a price so as to compare with a local tailor. Having Oxxford doing the lining is similar to "recrafting" by the shoe manufacturer. You might pay more, but if you will get the same workmanship, details, etc. You might get an overhaul. If you have a quarter lined coat, I would go to Oxxford. An outside tailor may use shortcuts. E.g., machine finishing the lining rather than hand sewing. Also, an outside tailor might not get the bellows pockets right. Some...
