I've got a pair of Wigmore's on the TG73 last. I take a UK 9.5E standard fitting, which is the same size I take in JLP 7000/8000 and EG202. The TG73 is certainly a snug fit for me in boots - I'm not sure whether this makes any difference in shoes.

They are on the 348 last. Also sold here
Cheaney in the UK produce minimum runs of 12 pairs. I believe they will effectively make whatever design and colours you want, and brand them to your requirements. Depending on style, C&J and Tricker's definitely make for other brands. I'm not sure about their minimum run requirement.

I think the Chapel's were around £850.

I'd wait until the sales in June. You may find this the most cost effective method. You've probably missed the boat at the JLP factory shop. Prices are now around 80% of retail for seconds (although very good seconds), with limited choice. Loafers were starting around £450 and Prestige around £650. Some bargains can still be had at Cheaney, C&J and Barkers. The remainder appear to have slammed the door and firmly bolted it. Maybe they will learn... It will...

Turns out, JL just reccomends plain old brown shoe polish... except they charged me 16 pounds for a jar. the standard JLP cream is the standard Saphir - you can well by looking at the colour label. Once you know what colour, order elsewhere!

I now use black cream and wax, and at some point they will just look plain old black. The museum finish is interesting, but I should just have bought black...
