Ha ha ... I did the same. Received mine on Friday. Great shoes.
Second time wearing my new Barclays. Love 'em .. .
I agree, same with the new Barclays. Fit like a glove. Always very supple leather/suede on G&Gs, much more so than EG or JL. i would not tolerate heel slippage. At G&G prices I want a good fit, rather settle for a little tight than a little too big when new.
IIRC, Justin said he'd aim to ship all orders next week.
I'm afraid it was. Slight blemish, hardly noticeable when worn. Really glad I went on Thursday morning ...
SiSizing up would make the quarters touch and that would not be good, so either you need a wider shoe (or different last) or you actually have the right size and just have to break them in.
Of course that is what it means ... no worse than RTW unless that someone else's foot is completely misshapen. These happen to fit me perfectly (better than the RTW version), so I'm happy.
That's what Tony said (and the box). Even bespoke can be based on or modelled around a last shape that pretty much resembles an existing last.
This is what I managed to get from Justin yesterday. Thanks, Justin. It was great to meet you again ...      
Finally, some photos of the bespoke Barclays I picked up at the sale yesterday:
