It's hard to make a blanket statement that one model creases more than all the others as the amount of creasing is a function of the leather used, how well a particular last, in this case, the 348, fits the wearer's foot, and the wearer's gait. For example my shoes tend to not crease much on the vamp as my feet don't flex much when I walk but the same shoes may crease more for someone else who walks differently.  If you Google Tetbury pictures it would seem that the waxed...
 The cognac cream is closest in terms of matching the colour but you could go with light, medium, or dark brown as well should you want to burnish the shoes. 
Go with the 10UK. The 10.5UK will feel more comfortable initially but you'll likely feel some heel slippage whereas the 10UK will be snug in the heel and only get more comfortable with wear. 
Both the black and dark brown are nice and versatile; go with the one you like more you won't go wrong with either. The 348 in E fits very similar to the Rain and Inca. Since you are a 10UK in the Rain and Inca I would recommend going with 10UK in the Tetbury. In fact I own the Tetbury in the dark brown suede and take the same size in my Inca double monk and size up a half for the Simpson cap toe so we are in the same boat. 
We are happy to announce the launch of FrancescoSr.com, the online home of our tailoring house at LeatherFoot Emporium. Please enjoy this video that takes you inside the art of Master Tailor Signor Francesco: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eARCZeUzH0  
We are glad you found us. The Carmina brown cap-toe pairs well with navy and grey trousers, they will look even better with a suit. Feel free to stop by the shop to try on a pair, we would be happy to assist you. 
We are pleased to announce an evening with menswear journalist Simon Crompton on Saturday, April 2, from 6-9 PM at LeatherFoot Emporium (82 Avenue Road).   This event will be Simon's first in Canada and in addition to signing copies of his new book, he will be taking part in a Q&A session. We sincerely hope you can join us.    If you would like to attend this event, please call us at 1-855-967-3668 or email events@Leatherfoot.com to reserve your spot. 
The storm welt does confer added water resistance but also makes the shoes appear less sleek in most cases; part of that is the welt itself the other is that C&J tends to use the storm welt on more rounded lasts. Unless you are intending to submerge them in water the normal Goodyear welt on the Tetbury is more than sufficient for all weather conditions. For the record we do not recommend that you submerge storm welted shoes in water either. 
 Thank you for the interest. We will announce who and when in due time once everything is finalized. Please bear with us in the meanwhile.  
Our recommendation is for lasted shoe trees whenever possible. Granted, not every shoemaker makes lasted trees but a lot do make sized shoe trees, which may or may not have springs, but those would be better for their shoes than a generic tree from a third party.
