Yes, I recall trying on some shoes at CJ Burlington Arcade London and noticed this to be true and the assistant agreed that Handgrade generally are a little less tight. I found that I could fit into 10.5 E in handgrade models but some BG were a bit too tight. Maybe not 1/2 a size in it though? In most shoes I am closer to 10.75 I think.....FWIW
Maybe depends on the leather used but my William II (I think Ardilla) became really soft and comfortable after a few wears - I usually go walking a few times in new shoes.

I have one other pair of AS that has regular printed size on the inside wall and these in the previous photos above have hand written size and...
Well, I do have a pair here on 109 but I don't know if I am high or low instep, have no idea on how to tell! But I have a question in case anyone can answer These are Aldwych on 109 last which is handwritten inside shoes My question is just because I am going to list them on B and S can anyone tell me are these double leather soles or HAF?
